Thank you Articulate User Conference Organizers!

Many thanks to Articulate for the invitation to speak again at the Articulate User Conference, one of the many co-located events at DevLearn23.

This was my second year speaking at the User Conference and it was a pleasure to co-present with Mike Roy. Mike and I had just met face-to-face for the first time – one day before the User Conference — even though we started working together back in 2019. Despite just meeting in person, it was like we had been presenting together for years and we both agreed we want to do it again.

Streamlined Course Management – Complex Simulations and Gamification

Our topic, “Streamlined Course Management: Templates, Development, Updates, and Maintenance for Effective e-Learning” drew a great crowd and generated insightful and interesting questions.

Here are some highlights from our session:

  • Utilized some of our award-winning complex simulations with gamification elements
  • Reviewed lessons learned from the original simulation build
  • Discussed best practices for building simulations and gamification
  • Reviewed recommended approaches for planning, development workflows, and client management
  • Coined the phrase “It’s all about the Master Slides™” – T-Shirt is in the works 😉

If you are interested in learning more about complex simulations and gamification elements for your organization, get in touch here.

Sessions we loved!

Mike and I both were able to attend some of the other User Conference sessions, here are some of our favorites:

Getting More Advanced Animations with Simple JavaScript SnippetsJeff Batt, Amazon – Jeff is one of my favorites as I always have WOW! And jaw-dropping moments in his sessions. He is a fantastic instructor and so generous with his time and knowledge.

From PowerPoint to Powerful E-Learning: Conversion Strategies for ImpactTom Kuhlmann, Articulate – Tom is not only one of the User Conference organizers, but his sessions are always top-notch. With so many clients rushing to convert PPT to Rise and Storyline these days, this session is timely and extremely useful.

Badass Branching: Unleashing the Power of Storyline 360Garima Gupta, Artha Learning – Although I didn’t get to attend Garima’s session in person, I was able to view it online and learned about advanced branching strategies, conditional triggers, and variables. With nearly every client project needing some type of branching scenario, I am looking forward to putting these to use soon!
