This e-Learning template is an example of a simple but effective way to introduce a new employee to their team. I have kept this example quite basic, but there is obviously a lot more you could do with an online induction module such as this.
My inspiration for this project was the Rapid e-Learning blog – “How to Create an Interactive PowerPoint E-Learning Module“, although I ended up using Articulate Storyline to develop this particular module.
The Design and the Process
Working with an overlaid semi-transparent colour mat and cropped photo image effects to focus the learner on one team member’s information at a time, I also used triggers and animations to facilitate navigation and make the module more engaging.
There were a number of valuable lessons that came out of this project. One was how effective it can be to use the Master Slide to store as much of the static content as possible as this saves time when you need to re-edit. Another was the importance of labelling everything, particularly images and objects, so that when you are working with these you know exactly what each objects does based on how you titled it, particularly if you put the project down and come back to it later.
