Articulate Guru Honorable Mention: Skid Skills by Linda Lorenzetti

Written by Jeanette — Posted in Guru Awards

This guest blog post is by Articulate Community Manager Jeanette Brooks.

Last fall when the submissions were pouring in for the 2010 Articulate Guru Awards, we were beyond impressed by the number and caliber of the courses that folks shared with us! It was really tough to choose the top winners from among the 200+ entries! (In case you missed the low-down on any of those winning courses, check out these links: Diabesity | Mission: Turfgrass | Psyched in 10 | What Your Teachers Never Told You | Financial Skills.)

Since so many of the runner-up courses contained really inspiring stuff too, we want to keep the Guru vibes going by featuring several Honorable Mentions here on the Word of Mouth blog over the next few weeks. To make sure you don’t miss any of the featured courses, you can subscribe to the Word of Mouth blog right here.

For today’s feature, take a look at Linda Lorenzetti’s course below.

Skid Skills by Linda Lorenzetti

If you’ve been around the Articulate community for a little while, you probably recognize @LindaLor from her Screenr stream or her tweets. She frequently shares creative tips on PowerPoint and rapid e-learning with the rest of the Articulate community.

Linda’s Articulate Guru submission contains some neat techniques you’ll want to check out:

What caught the judges’ eyes? For one, the consistent visual design. It was especially nice to see how Linda’s quiz and Engage interactions fit nicely with the rest of the course. Judges also liked how she used hyperlinks to create choices for her learners, and how she used creative animations to simulate skid actions.

Want to learn how to build some of those same effects? Linda shares some how-tos:

Brian – I was wondering if anyone would get the Lost references. Dr. Who’s also in there.

Ali – Yep, most of the photos are taken around North York.

Thanks to everyone else for the kind comments.

Great Job Linda. Can you let us know how you made the main articulate me go away when the quiz started? Thanks for your help!
