Proliferation of products, increasingly knowledgeable customers, intense competition and ever increasing targets, make product knowledge for a sales person much more critical than ever before.

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.
Adding videos to e-learning courses helps learners retain information better. Articulate Storyline provides 3 options to insert videos into e-learning courses, by default. In this post, I will explain how we met a client requirement pertaining to insertion of videos.
A client asked us for a requirement that their courses should have only online videos and the entire course should be developed using Articulate Storyline. We can meet this requirement using the Video from Website option of Storyline.
Articulate Storyline is a wonderful authoring tool to develop interactive and engaging e-learning courses. According to a survey conducted by the E-learning Guild in 2013, Storyline is the preferred choice of most e-learning developers. However, this powerful tool has some limitations.
Recently, we met an interesting requirement from one of our clients. The client wanted to develop a course having 3 modules. The learner needed to answer a quiz at the end of each module. The client wanted to display the score for each of the modules as well as the average of the 3 scores. We can meet this requirement easily using variables and triggers. But, the client wanted to display them in a separate window, ‘outside’ the Articulate Storyline environment (without the tool’s GUI) and print them.
Articulate Storyline is a rapid authoring tool which can be used to create courses on variety of topics – from food safety to financial accounting. Storyline is simple to use, and it easy to perform complex calculations using triggers.
Recently, we were asked to create a course on accounting which explained how to calculate the monthly savings of an employee. Let us see how we used Storyline to compute the savings.
Progress bars in e-learning courses are used to show the learner how much of the course he has completed.. Articulate Storyline, by default, doesn’t have an option to add progress bars. However, we have progress bars for individual slides. We can add a progress bar for an entire course in Articulate Storyline either by placing objects within the GUI (which consumes more time) or developing a HTML progress bar and inserting it as a Web Object into the course.
Given below are the steps to add a customized progress bar in quick time to your online courses.
Last evening, I had to cook dinner for my guests. I had some of the ingredients in the fridge, some in the shelf, some were in the bag that I just bought from the market, and the vessels were in different sections of the vessel rack. While cooking the first dish, I started running around for ingredients every time I needed one. I thought I will not be able to complete cooking before my guests arrived. Before cooking the second dish, I gathered all the necessary ingredients at one place. After completing, I noticed that the process for cooking the second dish went quite smooth and took less time than the first.
