Articulate Storyline is the best authoring tool I know. We can create many rich, Flash-like components using this tool. In this blog, I will share how to create a Digital Clock (we can create a clock in both 12 and 24-hour formats).
Articulate recently launched Articulate 360 to meet the online learning development needs of the 21st century, such as creating device-agnostic courses and video-based training modules.
Articulate 360 comprises 9 software applications, of which Storyline 360 is the most important.
In my previous blog, we have seen how to convert your PowerPoint presentations to e-learning courses using the rapid authoring tool, Lectora Inspire. In this post, we will see how to do the same, using another widely used rapid authoring tool – Articulate Storyline. This tool has a PowerPoint-like user interface which makes it quite user-friendly compared to the previous tools we have discussed. Learning experts and SMEs familiar with PowerPoint can use it very easily. This feature of Storyline makes it a widely used tool for converting PowerPoint presentations into engaging and interactive e-learning courses.
Assessments are the best way to test your learners’ understanding of the training content, but that’s not their only role. Part of why assessments are used in e-learning is to allow the learner evaluate where he/she stands with respect to the training being provided and fill their knowledge gaps (if any). This “filling the gap” is achieved by providing them with relevant feedback during the assessments, instead of a mere “Yes, you’re right” or “Wrong! Try again!”
Assessments in e-learning courses test learners on the topic they have been trained on and reinforce knowledge by providing feedback. Articulate Storyline 2 offers wonderful options to create effective e-learning assessments based on different requirements.
Articulate Storyline allows developers use a wide variety of default quiz types in online courses. The matching drop down slide is one of them. Recently, we were asked by one of our clients to customize this slide, which we did using triggers and states.
In online courses, we use a lot of visuals and interactive elements to engage learners. Blinking objects are a simple visual effect that can grab learners’ attention. You might be thinking it is possible to create such effects using software such as Flash and Photoshop. Did you know this can be done even with Articulate Storyline?
Articulate Storyline is a flexible, easy-to-use e-learning authoring tool. Among its many features, it lets developers insert the default script in the slides or a customized script, based on the requirement.
One of our clients asked us to create a customized script for a requirement. The client stipulated that once the learner opens the script window in a slide, the script should be visible even when he progresses to the next slide, until it is closed.
Articulate Storyline enables developers create the same interactivity in multiple ways.
Let us consider the click on tabs interactivity. To create this intertactivity, we can insert tab content and audio in the respective slide layers. We can also a add restriction for learners to visit all the tabs in the slide.
Designing a user-friendly Menu for an e-learning course is very important as it helps learners navigate easily through the course and find the information they want quickly.
Though Articulate Storyline offers a default menu, you may wish to have custom-made menu for your e-learning course. In this post, we will see how to customize a menu in Articulate Storyline. Let’s check a sample scenario.
