  • Any videos used need to be MP4 format. If that was not provided to you in the course folders, please contact Ginger and that will be sent to you asap.
  • If a video has the old NFSMI logo and you need the year published, please contact Ginger for that information. E.g. Published in 2010 as NFSMI

Provided below are links to a previous course completed that is a great example of the standard we are looking for. This course also follows the requirements of:

  • Correct instructions added in Intro and at the end of each lesson
  • Resources
    • Clearly labeled when a resource is available
    • Properly linked within each screen
    • Resource tab properly used
  • Progress bar used throughout each lesson

NeoSpeech How To Video

Additional notes:

  • Be sure to add the screen title in the audio
  • If you have text highlighted when you save as a .WAV file, only the text highlighted will be saved. This has caused some frustration in the past.
  • Once entered into Storyline, make sure the timeline ends when the audio ends and does not keep going. This also has caused frustration with users, so we like to check the timeline to make sure it does not keep going for a long time after the audio ends.

Please see your contract for deliverable specifics on audio files and other audio information.
