eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: Dude, Watch Your Aspect. Ratio!

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

For that reason, I think the eLearning canvas should be set up to use a 16:9 aspect ratio as opposed to 4:3.   The aspect ratio of an eLearning canvas designed to be viewed on its side, or in landscape mode, is the ratio of its longer side to its shorter side. If you go with a 4:3 aspect ratio (4 pixels across for every 3 pixels in height), you're working with a shape that is tending toward a square. Both 1024x576 and 1280x720 are 16:9 ratios.

Content/Practice Ratio?

Clark Quinn

So, I’d roughly (and generously) estimate that the ratio is around 80:20 for content: practice. The point is that I think our ratio should really be 50:50 if not 20:80 for content:practice. What ratios do you see? And what ratios do you think makes sense? I end up seeing a lot of different elearning. And, I have to say, despite my frequent disparagement, it’s usually well-written, the problem seems to be in the starting objectives.

PowerPoint saved as responsive doesn’t maintain aspect ratio during preview

Adobe Captivate

When I use the layout preview while working on the project, the slides maintain aspect ratio as they change size. But when I do a project preview and change the size, the slides get squished or stretched instead of maintaining aspect ratio. Note: I selected maintain aspect ratio when I imported the PP slides.

Informal budget ratio 80/20?

Clark Quinn

Donald Clark raises an issue on his blog about confounding informal with Web 2.0, and the point I found interesting is his query about the 80/20 in/formal learning metrics. He queries the statistics, and the issue of supporting informal. I took it (and no blame to him if I misconstrue) to be an issue of should we match our budgets to that ration. I commented: Interesting point, and right in many respects.

3 Tips for Importing PowerPoint Slides Into Storyline

Tim Slade

By default, Storyline sets its slides to a 4:3 aspect ratio. If you’re importing PowerPoint slides that are set at a 16:9 aspect ratio (or something else), you may end up with some objects becoming distorted or placed off your slide. One of the great features of Articulate Storyline is the ability to import slides from PowerPoint. However, Storyline doesn’t always import your slides properly.

  The more important value in project slide dimensions is really the aspect ratio which happens to be 4:3. This default aspect ratio is the most commonly used in computer monitors, TV sets, and most tablets. The other aspect ratio is 16:9 which is suitable for widescreen devices and should be used only if you know that your audience is using 16:9 displays.

Three Things to Do Before Building Your E-Learning Course

Rapid eLearning

Many e-learning courses are 4:3 aspect ratio. The other common aspect ratio is 16:9. However, you’re not confined to either one of those aspect ratios. This can be problematic because when you modify the aspect ratio of the slide, it means the existing content may get skewed or require a bunch of tweaking to get it re-aligned. Thus you want to determine the course’s aspect ratio before adding content to the slides.

Therefore, choosing the right size in terms of aspect ratio is paramount to good course design when using screen captures. Make sure your monitor’s aspect ratio and your course’s aspect ratio are the same. There are two main aspect ratios in use in Articulate: 4:3 and 16:9. Another common resolution is 1280×720 which equates to the 16:9 aspect ratio. You can then choose one of the two pre-formatted ratios mentioned above, or you can create a custom size.
