Non-human characters in e-learning

elearning, elearning samples, gimp, instructional design, open source

The excellent Articulate e-learning community run a weekly challenge to improve skills and share best practice. This week’s was to get a non-human character to ‘talk’. These come in handy especially when I.D. can’t find  a character to suit or in my example below I wanted to reach to a younger audience .

The design

There was always going to be bespoke artwork (I prefer it in my e-learning) so I drew a computer chip, leaving room for googly eyes and a smile. A bit of photo-editing with GIMP ( A Free alternative to photoshop) and I was ready to author.

Captivate 8

Adobe’s authoring software made this bit a breeze, place the photos on the slide, get the timing and audio to match and Boom! it’s a breeze
