Today I finally finished a months-long project of learning Articulate Storyline sufficiently well to create an html5 product for the web. Yay! Seems like it took forever to learn Storyline. Storyline is like Microsoft Powerpoint with another layer of complexity that allows you to insert quiz questions and dynamic instructional responses based on the student’s input. I can also save this information to my Learning Management System (my school uses EDU 2.0, but I also use Moodle and I know my files work on both LMS’s).
Students first should play with the simulation “Build an Atom” at Colorado PhET’s excellent website (click the yellow image):
The cool thing about the little quiz I made is that if students get something incorrect, they get hints, and, if a teacher wants to get the SCORM version from me, they can link it to their LMS and track student results. My students’ scores go directly into my gradebook! How cool is that! 🙂
Here is a link to the quiz:
