I’m presenting “Six Rules for Revising Bad Elearning Scripts” at the Learning Solutions conference this week. Hope to see you there!
If you’re attending Learning Solutions 2015 this week, I’ll be presenting “Five Tips for Revising Bad Elearning Scripts” on Wednesday at 4 pm. Stop on by and learn how to make your scripts more active.
In this screencast, I explain how I responded to David Anderson’s latest Elearning Heroes challenge. We were tasked with choosing three different-looking templates and then creating one unified template that incorporated elements of each. Click here if you want to download Storyline template.
Here are the other free templates that I mention:
- Break up onscreen text with Engage
- Build short scenarios with a Tabs interaction
- Build nonlinear interactions in Presenter
- Create a quiz template
- Use the Convert to the Freeform tool to inspire your creativity
- Create a branching scenario in Quizmaker
- Publish to HTML5 and iPad

Just a note to let you know that I will be presenting on “5 Tips For Revising Bad E-learning Scripts” at the Articulate Workshop held next week in Denver. If you’re involved in e-learning and live near Denver, I encourage you to attend. Register here.
This will be a fun, friendly extension of the E-Learning Heroes community. You’re invited to bring your laptop and get some hands-on experience working with Tom Kuhlmann, Dave Anderson and other community Articulate members.

Storyboarding can be a big time-saver, giving stakeholders an indication of what an online course will look like and contain BEFORE it’s developed. In this screenrecording, I respond to David Anderson’s weekly Articulate challenge, and answer the following questions about storyboarding:
- What is an e-learning storyboard and what does it include?
- What storyboarding templates or processes do you use (and when)?
- What tips would you give for those new to storyboarding?

I’ve been meaning to respond to one of the excellent challenges that Articulate community manager David Anderson puts up weekly. The challenge: make the quest template built by freelancer Jackie Van Nice your own. I built the graphics around Randy Borum’s stick figures and the “game-like” content around helping Johnny Student start his research project. Click here to see the game-like template.
I also fleshed the template out a bit. If you want to use it on your projects, click here for all the assets. (The whiteboard graphic was built by David Anderson.) I could see the template working well for a short internal project where a bit of lightness would be refreshing.
Here is a free elearning template. It’s inspired by a template Tom Kuhlmann created some time back. I built it in PowerPoint, but can be imported into Storyline and other authoring tools. Click here to download all assets and versions of the template.
If you want some explanation on how you might use the template, click here to view the youtube video. Hope you find it useful.

The timeline is one of the more complex elements of Quizmaker and Storyline, and the more you know about how it functions, the more efficient you’ll be with your elearning development. In this screen recording, I give you five tips on using the Articulate timeline.Quizmaker, Storyline, timeline, tips
Just a note to let you know that my “Instructional Design Essentials: Storyboarding” course is now playing on lynda.com. Storyboards are a great way to get everyone on the same page regarding content, and help give stakeholders a clear indication of what a proposed online course will look and feel like. In this latest lynda.com title, I storyboard content in the three most popular ways, as well show how to incorporate feedback from reviewers. If you storyboard your training courses, you’ll want to check this one out. Free templates provided.Rapid Prototype, Storyboarding, storyboards, voiceover scripts, writing
