Want to design effective training that reduces the performance gaps and help improve productivity? Are you getting started with e-learning development? But, not sure whether enough resources are available. Want to know which authoring tool best suits your e-learning development requirement?
Well, there are hundreds of eLearning authoring tools available in the marketplace. Depending on criteria such as the content type, author’s capability and content usage, an appropriate authoring tool needs to be selected. In addition there are some other key factors that need to be considered while selecting authoring tools for eLearning development.
Download this on-demand webinar on “Choosing the Right Authoring Tools For eLearning Development” where you will get to know the important parameters you need to focus on to help you choose the best authoring tools to suit your specific training requirements.

Watch-try-do simulations are ideal for software training. They enable learners to first watch, and then, try it themselves, and finally, work on the software. Recently, we satisfied a unique requirement. A training manager wanted to have a login screen in some screens of software. Learners have to type their usernames and passwords in the text entry fields. The most important requirement here is to add password fields i.e. the password typed by learners should be displayed as ‘*’.
Assessments in e-learning courses are intended to test learners on the topic / content they have been trained. Scoring the learners makes the assessments more engaging. Based on the score of the learner, corresponding feedback will be displayed. In general, specified number of points will be assigned for a correct response and no score will be assigned for an incorrect response.
Do you know that we can assign negative scores for an incorrect response to a question in a quiz?
A Webinar provides training to large audience. Most organizations conduct webinars to train their employees. Many a time, employees may not be able to attend the webinars. In such cases the content is made available in the form of on-demand webinars. The live webinars may require editing, additions and deletions when being converted to on-demand.
How many of you are comfortable with the following default bullet types in Articulate Storyline?
Recently, we had an interesting requirement from one of our clients. The client wanted to calculate the time spent by the learner on each module. Furthermore, he specified that the timer should stop when the learner visits the last slide of a module. We met this requirement using Articulate Storyline. Using three variables for each module (with any number of slides) we calculated the time. Here are the steps we followed to meet the requirement.
In my last post, I explained how to calculate the monthly savings of an employee using Articulate Storyline. In this blog, we will see how to calculate simple interest (SI) using the rapid authoring tool.
Earlier, we created a course for a financial organization to train its new employees on the process of calculating the monthly savings of an employee. The course was a major success, and so, we were asked to develop a course on the calculation of SI.
Final quiz is the last part for an e-learning course and a good learning strategy. Learners should attempt the quiz in order to complete the training program successfully. And, feedback should be given for individual questions in the quiz to reinforce learning.
Consider a scenario in which the options for the question and feedback for the options have heavy content and learner cannot see the question and selected choices while viewing the feedback. As we cannot chunk the content of the options and feedback, we should make the pop-up ‘dragable’ so that learners can drag it aside and read it.
Articulate Storyline comes with a rich media player which can be used to run audio and videos, very effectively. However, player controls such as audio volume, play/pause, progress bar and replay ‘pertain’ to the entire slide. For instance, when you click replay, the whole slide will be played again.
Articulate Storyline can be used to perform a wide variety of calculations. In this blog, I will explain how to compute cumulative average (a weighted average based on the points obtained in all the units in a course) using this rapid authoring tool.
