In this week’s e-learning challenge David Anderson challenged the Articulate community to show some ideas of subtle animations and/or transitions. I can hear you thinking…why subtle? The short answer to this question is that subtle animations can be very effective to grap the atention of the learners.
If you want to learn more about why and how to use animations in e-learning you deffinately need to check out this cool tutorial from Tim Slade.
The animations that I’ve used in this demo are a few ‘Fly-in’ animations which are part of the ‘ready to use’ animations within Storyline. Besides these animations I’ve build a subtile animation with the ‘dial feature’ and some triggers.
