How to Change Character Expressions in Online Assessments in Articulate Storyline

How to Change Character Expressions in Online Assessments in Articulate Storyline

Did you think avatars can be used only to present content or guide learners in online courses? Well, they can be used to test learners and provide feedback too.

We generally use characters or avatars in online learning assessments to bring in more engagement. A character asks a question and becomes happy or sad based on the learner’s response in Articulate Storyline. This change in expressions helps incorporate an emotional element 1 in the course.

Here I would like to share how to change the expressions of characters in online learning assessments using Articulate Storyline through the following steps.

Step 1: Insert a character in the assessment slide.
