Screen Recording Tips for Articulate Storyline

Articulate Screen Recording

Last week I delivered Articulate Storyline training to the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service, Queensland. One of the questions I was asked was how to create good quality screen recordings? The screen recording feature in Storyline is one of my favourites. It’s really easy to use and allows you to use the recording in four different outputs:

  • Video
  • View
  • Try
  • Test

I‘ve recently been creating a lot of screen recordings for the Master eLearning Course so I had a few good tips to share with the group. I’ve put some of these questions below.

How long should screen recordings be?

Integrating Motivation with Instructional Design

Instructional Design

As an Instructional Designer, motivating learners is an important consideration because in reality learners are not always motivated to learn. They are busy, have other things to do, don’t see the course/session as being important or have had a bad learning experience in the past.

The ARCS model comprises four major factors that influence the motivation to learn – Attention, Relevance, Confidence and Satisfaction. It’s described as a problem-solving model and helps designers identify and solve specific motivational problems related to the appeal…


Use Gamification to Put Your Learners at Risk!


Last week I presented at the iDesignX conference in Sydney. It was  great day and it was wonderful to connect with so many other eLearning practitioners and meet the Articulate legends a.k.a Tom Kuhlmann and David Anderson.  My presentation was called Personalising Learning through Conditional Interactivity.

I examined how we could use gamification techniques to make our online courses more meaningful and ultimately a more personalised, learning experience. I like to say things in threes, so I’ve summarised my presentation into three main parts:

These were the two messages that stood out over three days in Sydney at the iDesignX  Australian Instructional Design Conference (21st March) sponsored by B Online Learning and Articulate and the eLearning Design Workshops with Tom Kuhlmann and David Anderson (22nd and 23rd March).

I was fortunate to attend the sessions in Sydney last week and for me it was a dream come true to not only be in the same room as Tom and David but to hear and learn…


Choosing Colours for eLearning


Years ago my mother and her friends used to go and get their colours done with Colour Me Beautiful. This was like a personal stylist service that matched your own natural hair colour to a season. You could be spring, summer, autumn or winter. By finding your right season you could figure out what colours worked best for you when shopping for clothes or make-up and in the long run become a more ‘beautiful’ version of yourself!

Well I don’t really use the Colour Me Beautiful services but I wish I could apply this concept to eLearning.  I get asked…
