My Experience with Creating a Scenario-based Course: Part 5

I demonstrated this project at the eLearning DemoFest 2012 event, where a variety of solutions for day-to-day eLearning challenges including tools, technologies, and processes are showcased. And the good news is that this course won the Best Soft Skills Course award. :) :)

Post 1: 7 techniques for using characters to liven up your eLearning

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, author of the Assets eLearning Blog and President of eLearningArt.com, a stock photo site for the eLearning industry.

How most people use characters

One thing I notice when hosting workshops is that the first time users try to insert character images, the end product looks about the same for all users: they use the character as an avatar and the full character (head to toe) is in the viewable area. Continue reading…
