Articulate Guru Award
Mashrur’s decade of learning experience really shows in his course. He flexed his technology and design prowess to skillfully transform a weighty regulatory topic into this playful, engaging piece.
A clever construct
Mashrur gives each leg of the quest a unique look and feel, yet ties them all together with cohesive design. Mashrur says it was remarkably easy, thanks to Storyline’s story view feature, which lets you see all the slides in your course at once, grouped by scenes. “Story view provides an overview of each scene and slide, so it was super easy to grow the course structure organically. Once I designed the core structure, I just copied and pasted it into new scenes, and customized it with graphics and content. Story view significantly reduced development time and let me focus on small chunks, one at a time.”
Quest for Knowledge
Rather than test how well you’ve memorized content, Mashrur designed his assessments to test how well you apply it, which is critical when working with a regulatory topic. During an assessment, you can review training notes built with triggers and slide layers to refresh your memory without penalty. And following a challenge, you can click to view a content summary, or download it as a PDF at the end of the course.
Mashrur did an excellent job of creating free-form assessments visually in sync with the rest of the course, so you feel immersed in the game. In one drag-and-drop, you drag a star to a constellation outline representing an answer choice. In another, you drag answers from one of four pillars to a pyramid set in the quest’s desert scene.
