Simon's Portfolio
(well... the parts he can show you)


I've made the source files for all these projects available to you on Google Drive at https://goo.gl/j224Pk.

Interactive map

Created for e-Learning Heroes Challenge #44, this sample includes free navigation using a novel text-based command mechanism (think Zork). 

If you want to get an idea of how tricky that can be, check out the Storyline source file.


Zombie Survival Guide
This one was for e-Learning Heroes Challenge #55. It features illustrated characters made from simple shapes, animations using built-in Storyline features and Michael Jackson's zombie (and he's dancing!).


A Very Brady Org Chart
I made this for e-Learning Heroes Challenge #43. I thought the Brady Bunch opening sequence was a fun and familiar way to introduce people in an organization.
Bonus features: 




Are You Ready for Some Football?
Around Superbowl Sunday (they tell me that's a real thing), the weekly e-Learning Heroes Challenge (#68) was to create a football related interaction. This one has some fun stuff such as a branching scenario and multiple tests (with separate question banks) feeding the same results slide. Oh yeah, and some of the quiz questions are impossible to get wrong. Who loves ya?


Math for Fun and Profit
The objective of e-Learning Heroes Challenge #71 was to teach math skills online. I wanted to share how much fun math can be, so I created a course based around math jokes (i.e. math for fun) and threw in some key information for answering skill-testing questions in contests (i.e. math for profit).
To ramp up the fun, I also included a relevant soundtrack by "Weird Al" Yankovic, which runs through the whole course (a feature that's not supported by Storyline, the e-Learning authoring tool I used). Listen carefully and you'll hear him rap about pi - I told you it was relevant.



Video background
I made this one for e-Learning Heroes Challenge (#95). The challenge was to use background video or cinemagraphs in e-Learning.

I used an old Super Mario Bros TV commercial for the demo, but you could use this same approach to create annotated "how to" videos for software training or skills demos.
