Gamified Scenario

By: Richard Watson

Synopsis: In his Articulate Rise 360 project named “Mass Casualty Incident Scenarios Using START,” Richard wanted to recreate the highly time-sensitive activity of injury triage at an emergency scene. Richard chose to create these scenes in Storyline, then embed them in Rise, and, of course, Richard’s an ace at creating a strong Storyline experience. So his biggest challenge was to find the graphics he needed to accurately illustrate each example while also maintaining visual cohesion across the program.
