My adjustment of the Articulate Storyline slide dimension to accommodate smaller screen may have a lasting impact. Products built in the future will now consider mobile screen sizes and reduce the complexity of slides. This also created a clearer learning experience.
The product where I made these dimension adjustments was also the company's first fully accessible product. I use Storyline accessiblility features to create a tab order and audio captions.
Psychology made simple
Instead of featuring three types of statement across 3 different slides, I wanted to find a way to show them together for the benefit of comparison. This caused screen complexity problems. To compensate the SME kindly reduced the amount of information she wanted to deliver in the explanations resulting in a clearer experience.
This circular diagram is a strong element to many training courses. Most of the theory delivered relates back to it. I needed to feature it as often as possible without over complicating slide content. My request to abbreviate the words used was accepted and SME's found ways to reduce other textual content of slides resulting in more concise courses.
I also wanted to increase the range of possible customers and situations reflected in the courses.
