Land and learning with Articulate Storyline

May 24, 2024

I was asked by a client to create the visual design and interactivity for Articulate Storyline slides for a Northern Indigenous Entrepreneurship course. I turned to the concept of land-based learning to provide imagery, metaphors and concepts that evoke living within the natural environment. I was also inspired by a native colleague who urged the importance of paths and trails.
