E-learning Heroes Challenge #105

This week’s challenge was to find creative ways to show dialogue in e-learning. Which lit my creative side

The idea

I had plenty of ideas for this challenge but I had to whittle it down to one.

Ticker Tape – scrolling dialogue at the bottom of the screen

Translation – Two sentences in different languages

Subtext – Speech bubble for dialogue. Loose text for the thought.

But the winner was

Subtitles- The type you see on T.V. for the hard of hearing.

The Design

I set myself an extra challenge which was to shrink the working area by using a mobile phone template. With space at a premium the dialogue had to be snappy. A busy workplace setting sprang to mind. I used text and audio to set the scene.

The Result

I coloured the text for each character to help the reader identify who is saying what and used left and right placement to reinforce this.

Having the text pop-up also helped with identification and reading.
