This week I finally had the time to build a demo for the Articulate Weekly Challenge. The topic was #44: Virtual Tours.
Here is my entry … Click on the screenshot to launch in a new window.
The aim was to build an interactive tour of some kind, so I opted for something topical seeing as we’re commemorating the First World War – a mapped timeline of key events and battles along the Western Front. All the action occurs on a single slide using layers and states. The maps are hand-drawn and include a few subtle animations around key locations.
Given the time I would have included more depth, e.g zooming maps and video footage, but that wasn’t to be. Instead, I think I’ll do this in the future.
Regarding mobile capability, it does play on Android devices and iPads, with the exception of the animations. I’ve not yet tried it in Puffin’s very capable browser, but it’s quite possible it works perfectly.
