What I love most about Lectora is the ability to customize and adapt to specific needs within the program. Whether that is through actions, variables, or some other method, I have seen very few things that can’t be accomplished through the tools within Lectora. For my entry, I decided to challenge myself by building a […]
Using Lectora Online I created a course showcasing my love of actions. Enjoy!
One of the things that I love about Lectora is the ability to add actions. Actions are a really neat way to add some “spice” to your course. And they are just plain fun. Grab some headphones and enjoy. Shout-out to the actions! Woot, woot!
I just wanted to spread some love for Lectoras audio player. Of course, it’s not unlimited love, but only within a specified interval.
For Community Contest 27, create a short eLearning module highlighting something you love. Are you loving actions? What about variables? How about a specific style of development like video training? You could even go literal and make a Valentine’s Day e-card. Share it with us and tell us why you love Lectora!
For Community Contest 26, create a short eLearning module highlighting something you new you learning in Instructional Design, eLearning, or Lectora. Did you master actions? Or find a new and interesting way to use variables? How about learning to add extra code in your course? It could be as simple as designing or creating something you’re really proud of. Share it with your peers and tell us why!
In this time of thanks I’d like to visit a time where there wasn’t much food – college. This quick guide will help new college kids around the kitchen, however you probably want to take this on a computer and not a mobile device. Music credit: bensound.com
For Community Contest 25, create a short eLearning module on anything food-related. Why not include a step-by-step guide for your favorite recipe or use your phone to capture cheap and easy photos. For inspiration check out our Let’s Cook course.
It’s hard to think of fall without thinking of Halloween. And it’s hard to think of Halloween without thinking about jack-o-lanterns. Have fun carving your own unique jack-o-lantern!
Did you know that, unlike all the other seasons, there is no common name for when the year turns from summer to winter? This very short module uncovers the origins of the different names used for autumn/fall/harvest, etc.
It’s fall and that can only mean one thing – that’s right – hot air balloons! Ok, that may not be what you think of when you hear ‘fall,’ but for some reason I do. Hop in and learn a few things about hot air balloons in general. From the cost to purchase or ride, to […]
For Community Contest 24, create a short eLearning module on anything fall-related. It should be interactive and include lots of graphics or a helpful video. Don’t forget to share your creation with friends, family, and peers on social media or your website.
A brief training on what birth doulas do.
For Contest 23 I invite you to take a trip around the world to learn more about five birthday ‘traditions.’ Each of the five countries features a YouTube video that can be played to learn more. Some extra treasures are hidden within the course. It is not mobile, and the sources for the content can […]
A brief history of birthday song copyright disputes. Used text as buttons, grouped images and text for simple timeline.
Here is my contribution to the birthday! A simple quiz to discover the identity of three historical people born in August.
This is just a fun practice for blowing out candles on a cake. I hope you enjoy it!
When I was in grade school, everyone who had a summer birthday celebrated it on the same designated day (instead of on their actual birthdays like those who had birthdays during the school year), and there was a smorgasbord of treats that day. It was the best day. Now, we’re bringing the excitement of summer birthdays to the Trivantis Community!
We decided early on to put a personal touch into our courses and walk users through the navigation. Using GoAnimate, I put together an avatar of myself and recorded the audio so I personally could instruct users through the nuances of navigation – so yes, that’s me.It helps that I developed the course, so I actually […]
I decided to take a low tech approach to this month’s contest. Since my kids and I have been enjoying the weather and water so much lately I decided to pull photos and videos off my phone to use. The videos were filmed on my phone, proving that you don’t have to have fancy equipment.
Happiness Training 101 The ultimate guide to Happiness!… according to the internet. Turn the music up and enjoy as you are taken through a journey of happiness. The video was made using GoAnimate and imported into Lectora 17.
This is Zoe. She is the face of a series of 1-2 minute instructional videos I created which included “How to take a Virtual Class Using Adobe Connect” and “How to Navigate around the LMS” among other videos. Zoe is expressive and fun. I used a website called Raw Shorts.
For Contest 22, create a short, 1-2 minute video that you embed in a Lectora course snippet. In the video, explain or teach a concept of your choice.
At the risk of being greedy, here’s a second contest entry from a class I developed recently. Master Cannoli is a guide character I created for another course which —sadly, was retired, but he got new life in this newly created course for Demonstration Specialists.This is a stripped down version that skips a few sections, […]
This is a selection from a course about selling Dietary Supplements. I had to drop a bunch of elements for file size, but several choice moments of the guide character Rebecca are there as well as some interactive feedback. (Choose YES when she asks if Chad did anything wrong). REBECCA was a super fun character to […]
For this course on how to prepare/what to expect from a new kitten, I used my own kitten (Roger) as a guide! I used some pictures of him that are just cropped, but I also wanted to try my hand at creating my own cut out person-like PNG file. To do that I used Snagit’s […]
For contest 21, I created a guide character with a solar powered owl figurine I had lying around the office. I incorporated him as a cutout and also in photos I took. The course is loosely a healthy eating guide for youth. I was a bit limited to office snacks and things in the office […]
So, here is my contest entry. It’s only 4 pages, but hopefully it conveys the idea I’m going for. Basically, my character and theme are entwined, and while it starts out as a “guided tour” introducing you to the mechanisms for using the course, you will eventually be left to your own devices, only getting […]
In this short example you can see how shapes can be used to form people, avatars, characters…nearly anything you can think of. It just takes a little planning plus some trial and error (I think what you will see in this course could be polished a little, but hopefully it is enough that you get […]
Welcome to another installment of ’10th Inning Trivia!’ Ten questions of baseball trivia that you probably know the answer to, but if not, your teammate ‘Nate’ will help you out! Note that scoring is not perfect, but I guarantee you will win! You can also give it a try on a mobile device, but I […]
For this month’s contest, I created myself as a character by converting a Lectora User Conference selfie into a vector image using only PowerPoint. It wasn’t easy and took about 45 minutes but I know now that if push came to shove I could make something on my own. I created a shortened video so […]
Character guide for Contest 21. I wanted to create a character using Lectora shapes, it is a very crude example that will appear as a secondary element in the pages. It can be used to give navigation hints or additional information to the main content of the course. I picked the name Piwi for it, […]
For Contest 21, we’re challenging you to come up with your own guide and show how you would incorporate him/her/it on at least 3 different pages of an eLearning module. But, there’s a catch—you cannot use any premade guides or character cutouts! Step away from the eLearning Brothers Cutout People library and embrace your creativity.
