It seems like there is no stopping Articulate Storyline. Since the launch of its first version in 2012, the company went on improving the tool, setting a benchmark for other authoring tools to follow. After Articulate 360, Articulate is back with the next version of Storyline, Storyline 3.
We all know that the training landscape is rapidly changing; we need to be able to get learning content to our learners as quickly as possible, to stay ahead. This is where tools like Articulate Storyline meet the needs of the new age learner.
Organizations are sitting on a huge stack of legacy courses, which have now become obsolete, since there are no takers for these courses. A lot of investment, time, and creativity have gone into the development of these courses. Fast-forward to the present day, the learner wants information on his mobile device, he wants everything bite-sized and accesses information from different devices. This gave rise to the concept of Responsive eLearning, where courses can be accessed on devices with varying screen sizes.
Wireframes provide a framework for an online course using placeholder text and graphics. At a deeper level, wireframes determine how a learner will interact with the course. A wireframe consists of the menu, buttons, and instructions. A wireframe is commonly used to specify the content layout of slides and functionality of an e-learning course.
If developing a mobile learning course is one big hurdle, then tracking learner progress is yet another. You will want to see how well your learners did, how long they spent on each course, and how well they fared in the assessments. All this information can be tracked by an LMS using SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model), a set of e-learning technical standards.
As your learners continue to go mobile, accessing information on various devices and browsers, it’s time for you to start thinking about redesigning your legacy eLearning courses and retrofit them for your mobile audience.
