Personalize Course Branding
Every organization has their own branding colors, fonts, and styles. With the modern player, you can easily customize the branding color, graphics, and text styles for your eLearning courses. By default, it has Dark and Light Player themes you can choose. You can personalize colors quickly with the modern player; apply your organizational branding by applying the custom accent color.
In addition, you can change the fonts, button style, and text labels throughout the course, and also specify the navigation buttons in 3 different styles. This feature will give a better experience on all devices, try this to get a fresh new look in your eLearning course.
If you want a chrome-less project, just turn off the Player setting, this will help you create a custom GUI for your eLearning course, apart from the default look and feel.
Personalize Quiz Feedback Style
Articulate Storyline 360 updates also include modern feedback style in assessments. You can choose to include modern feedback styles to your existing eLearning quizzes/assessments. It automatically applies to new projects, but for the existing courses, it uses the classic feedback style, which you can easily update to the modern style.
However, it’s a good way to edit text and design with the feedback master slides, instead of doing it for each question. Add a recognizable name for the feedback master so that it is easy to find while updating an existing course.
Let’s now check the publishing option for the final course output. Publishing to HTML5 output with the modern player gives your eLearning course the final touch with a good quality output in all web browsers including desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.
When you choose the modern player for your course, it won’t accommodate the Flash player while publishing. However, if you require the Flash player for your course, you need to switch to the Classic Player option.
Articulate Storyline 360 offers a variety of options to do more with the best features for your learning need. Try this for your upcoming eLearning courses and experience the look and feel. But before you go ahead with this feature, explore the options available with the modern player.
