My 1st Articulate Guru Awards entry!

View Demo

Today I’ve uploaded my first entry to the 2015 Articulate Guru awards. The Guru awards are hosted by Articulate and are open to anyone that wants to show off their mad Articulate skills.

This is my first time entering the Guru awards and I must say I’m excited, and a little nervous, about it. I want to do something good, heck I want to win (which is odd as I am the least competitive person I know). Although most entries will probably be Articulate Storyline based I decided to submit an Articulate Studio 13 demo.

The demo I submitted is a Call Center interaction based on a Storyline interaction Tim Slade created and shared in the Articulate community.

The demo features:

  • fully animated interface to enhance the user experience,
  • branching scenario using the challenge-choice-consequence model. This means that your scenario will develop based on your choices. It allows users to (re)try different options and gives them the opportunity to correct any mistakes they’ve made along the way.
  • illustrated characters with facial expressions to enhance user feedback and add to the emotional experience
  • Avatar selection to personalize the course experience.

The cool thing, if I say so myself, is that anyone that sees this demo automatically thinks it is built in Articulate Storyline and it’s not. It is 100% Articulate Studio and it only took me about 6 hours to build and 2 hours to bugfix, making sure all scenarios for all avatars where branching correctly.

This demo is probably one coolest things I’ve built in Articulate Studio and it shows how incredibly powerful and versatile it still is. Articulate Studio is where it all started for me and this Articulate Guru entry is my personal tribute.
