During my USF course EME6613 (Development of Technology-based Instruction) we have explored the use of Articulate as an eLearning authoring tool. Below you will find a link to review the course I created, as well as a break down of the tools incorporated within the design.
In my first slide, I inserted images from my own computer, as well as a character who the learner will attach the narrations to as they progress through their missions.
On slide two, the learner instructed to click on the static image to reveal the names of the various galaxies.
One slide three, the previous slide’s manipulation is enriched through a drag and drop matching activity where the learner is using the images to match the name to the descriptions. I gamified this information by introducing it as a mission and allowing the learner to feel as though they are playing an a game of Clue. The learner is notified if their submission are correct or incorrect with a limit of 5 attempts.
On slide four, the learners are introduced to our galaxy by the use of an animated image of a Spiral galaxy.
On the fifth slide, the learners are on their second mission to show what they know by dragging the names of the objects in the solar system to the appropriate images. The learners are given their results upon submission with unlimited attempts using Freeform.
On the sixth slide, the learners will participate in a Likert Scale Survey, within the Freeform where they will rate their understanding of the characteristics of each object in our solar system on a scale of 1-5.
Upon submission, the seventh slide will reveal and review the results from the tasks accomplished throughout this course with a reminder to check back for their next mission.
