Future Proofing Course Links

Submitted by Kingsley πŸ‘‘ on Thu, 02/09/2012 - 12:49

UPDATE: See this solution if you have a lot of links. Future Proofing Multiple Course Links
We received a question over at eLearningEnhanced.com from a user, David, who is linking to government sites but the sites keep moving the content!
This comes up a lot... you create a link to your companies internal wiki "XYZ.com/wiki" but then they go and change it "XYZ.com/help". Now you have to go back and change all your courses and republish them.

#Articulate Muter and Unlocker

This widget lets your students mute the narration of your course while also unlocking the slide so that they may advance.

This will come in handy when you have a lot of narration but the student reads it faster.Β 

Watch the screenr to learn more.

Play with a demo here.

Buy it for 10 bucks http://elearningenhanced.com/products/muter-and-unlocker

Cut-n-Paste as PNG (Add-in for PowerPoint)

Submitted by Kingsley πŸ‘‘ on Mon, 08/23/2010 - 10:27

There are a lot of good reasons to convert your PowerPoint graphics into PNGs... Especially if you are using Articulate.
It can reduce file size and simplify a cluttered slide. You can also do cool stuff like set transparent areas; Tom Kuhlmann has a great screenr on that http://screenr.com/YTC
I despise repetition in my daily life and often create snippets of code to automate stuff I find myself doing over and over. In this case I created a PowerPoint add-in that puts a button on the Ribbon that quickly does the cut-paste for me.

This course was created for Dominion Virginia Power (my day job). Read about how/why it was created below or jump to the bottom and click the screenshot to view the course.

How/Why

Our team was tasked to develop online training for our company’s Safety Policy. We decided that since content is static and has a large audience it was a great opportunity for us to create something unique.Β

Playing with Articulate Engage Links

Submitted by Kingsley πŸ‘‘ on Tue, 08/10/2010 - 12:42

I got a question about opening links in the same window from Engage.
It is not very easy to it from within Engage itself. But if you are willing to edit the XML after you publish your file it is not too hard to accomplish. And it opens up other possibilities as well.

Here is the code I used in the examples:
(note I converted " to " )
javascript:alert( " test " )
javascript:window.open("http://eLearningEnhanced.com","mywindow" ,"status=0,location=0,resizable=1,width=550,height=450");
