I use Articulate on a daily basis to create interactive eLearning activities, but this eLearning Heroes Challenge was definitely a…challenge. This week, “Articulate Dave” asked the community to create a parallax using sliders in Articulate Storyline.

As Dave defined, a parallax is:

…a motion effect that’s used to simulate depth by animating background images slower than foreground images. 

Basically, it’s that fancy feature with your new iPhone that makes it seem like the background on the phone is moving when you tilt the phone around from side to side.

I plan to update later about what I did to create this effect. I’ve got to be honest; it took me forever (or so it felt like it), but I’m really excited about the end result.

And I always feel like I need to make the challenge relevant to some kind of subject matter. So…here ya go.

      The parallax challenge was pretty tough for me. It took me a while to do, but when I got it working, I was so excited!
