How to Reduce Storyline Development Time
As a developer I often get questions about the future. Specifically, how much time it would take me to develop an (often nebulously conceptualized) eLearning course in Storyline. A good rule of thumb is that it will take a bit more than an hour of production for every minute of limited interaction course time. That doesn’t include developing a storyboard (or script) or custom content. Custom content can include audio narration, icons that are specific to the content of the course, or custom video content.

What is Gamification anyway?
Gamification has become a popular educational strategy to motivate people of all ages, both online and in the classroom. In addition to making learning more enjoyable, gamification is used to promote active learning, engage users in real-world problem solving, and recognize achievements or competencies. According to a recent report, this trend is expected to continue due to a stronger focus on experiential and inquiry-based learning and increased awareness through professional development.
"I'll call you Thursday"... or maybe Not
Early in my career, I had a boss who couldn’t make important decisions. Decisions that would have enabled me and my team members to act quickly, be productive, and achieve the success we all desired. Instead, the answer I consistently got was “I’ll call you Thursday”. (It wasn’t ALWAYS Thursday, but it seemed to be his favorite pick of the week.) Needless to say, Thursdays would come and go with no call. This indecision resulted in wasted time, reduced productivity, a sense of failing our internal customers, and feeling demoralized for not being trusted to make the decisions myself.
Candidate Engagement, tools that matter!
In this hyper competitive market for talent, everyone is looking for ways to stand out to potential candidates. According to the CareerBuilder Talent Supply tool, in some markets there are 16 times more jobs than there are candidates. Take New York-based technical infrastructure positions. There are currently 123,000 open jobs and only 7,000 active candidates. Anyone looking to find ways to differentiate to candidates are realizing that a positive candidate experience is an impactful way to attract, engage, and hire talent.
