Yes, we offer a free trial of Chameleon. Simply sign up here and receive one free project.
Yes it is, we support SCORM 1.2, 2004v3 and 2004v4. Once you have completed your design, simply click the ‘download SCORM package’ button on the top right of your screen to download the file.
Yes, chameleon produces fully responsive HTML5 learning courses for all devices. Perfect for mobile learning too.
We have built Chameleon to help designers build a website without the need of a developer. Simply edit elements as you go, add or remove sections and pages. No code is required.
Yes! Accessibility is important to us. You can create courses which are fully compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. We have also created a set of hints and tips so authors can make smart design decisions to stay within the guidelines.
Yes indeed you can! Firstly, it's worth clarifying the language used with "self hosting" a local video file, or "embedding" one. Embedding is what Chameleon currently does. When you embed a video, you are hosting the video at another location and simply linking to it. It's a smart way to host what usually is a large file and optimise the experience for the end user. There is a number of secure ways you can embed a link too. Either through Vimeo/Youtube private channels, hosting within SharePoint or many more way.
Absolutely! Applying animations to your content is a great way to add visual excitement for your end-users. And it's surprisingly really easy to add in animated SVG's (Scalable Vector Graphics). Check out our resources page to view a short post that runs you through the quick and easy process.
Firstly, Chameleon does a lot of the heavy lifting to ensure you don't break the design of your course and your images will respond to all devices. But the platform certainly enjoys it more when the images are of smaller file size! like any website, you want to ensure you optimise your images that you load to Chameleon as much as possible (without effecting the quality of course).
Yes! We have a built in image library which allows our you to not only plug our illustrations into their courses but it also allows you to re-colour them to suit your specific brand. We also have a media library you can upload your own images and media, though please note these can not be re-coloured.
Module Output Questions
Simply click on the magnifying glass icon on the bottom left of your screen when editing your project.
Chameleon modules will be provided as a SCORM package (zip file) and it can be loaded to an LMS as you would any other SCORM package. Chameleon can publish modules in SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 (3rd and 4th editions).
Yes, they can be loaded onto SharePoint or other websites. All you need to do is download the same SCORM zip file that you would download if it was going to get loaded onto an LMS (please note, only modules published as SCORM 1.2 will work on SharePoint or other websites). Once unzipped you will need to point to the index.html file at the root level of the unzipped folder. If modules are loaded onto SharPpoint/websites the module will not track completion and bookmarking will not work.
No, your learners do not need access to Chameleon to view a course. Chameleon is the platform where you create and edit your content and then once it is ready to launch to your learners the course is downloaded out of the platform and deployed into your environment.
Look and Feel Questions
You can. We allow the administrator of your organisation to do this. From their project screen, next to the "users" tab, they will see "fonts". From there, simply click "add" and follow the wizard accordingly.
We have created Chameleon so it provides a great experience for your audience on all devices (desktop/tablet/phone). As a result of this we have been deliberate around What layout options we offer for your content so it collapses nicely to fit a scroll-able linear view. You can manipulate the layout of your content easily in the styling properties of your interaction.
Yes, we allow you full customisation with regard to theming and styling the look and feel of your design. This can be done at both a global level (for your entire course) and also at an interaction level where you can override the global theme.
Yes, bookmarking works at an interaction level so learners will return to the point they left off.
Chameleon is fully responsive so it will respond to suit the device that it is viewed on. The way this works is in the same way a website would do it, by making the content collapse to fit a scroll-able linear view. The best way to see this in action is to use the preview link and view your module on both a desktop and mobile device so you can compare the differences. When you are designing in the tool you can also see how your content responds by “pinching” your screen to different sizes.
Yes, you can author Chameleon courses on tablets, however for the best experience we would recommend using a PC/laptop.
If you want to be able to track completion and scoring for your learners you will need to deploy your module onto an LMS. However, if this is not a requirement we offer some flexibility where you can host our modules as a website.
Yes, all courses you create in Chameleon are HTML5 compatible and do not require flash.
Learning Design Questions
This is a design decision and is totally up for discussion (there are lots of opinions out there!). However, as a general rule we would recommend that your modules are no longer than 20-minutes of learning seat-time to ensure you keep engagement high from your learners. Not many people love long eLearning modules!
Yes, you can and we have made it super easy for you. You can redirect any button in your course to other topics and interactions at will. If you want to get a little more intricate to you can also hyperlink to specific destinations in your module.
Yes, for any content you build in the platform that a learner has to interact with you can easily lockdown the interaction so they have to complete it before proceeding through the module. You can find this setting in the styling section of an interaction.
We have an ever evolving library of interactions. We would suggest jumping into the platform, adding an interaction and browsing the library. We are also open to suggestions if you have something on your wish list!
Module Setup Questions
You can duplicate your project quickly and easily in the project settings area of the platform. Shoot over to our resources page and we have a short video clip to show you how.
A project slug relates to the URL for the specific project you are working on. You can choose your own vanity slugs as you wish.
