Case Study 2: A Novel Approach Toward Workplace Diversity Training Using Articulate Storyline
Requirement: A leading industrial gases company in the United States asked us to develop an e-learning course on Diversity and Inclusion for their workforce. This is aimed at bridging gaps between employees and building stronger communities. The emphasis was on creating a positive work environment.
After taking the online training, employees should adhere to government policies and company rules on the sensitive subject, ‘diversity’. The client also specified the e-learning course should include rich multimedia and interactive elements. Tight timelines were also a challenge.
Solution: We developed this online course on diversity at the workplace using Articulate Storyline. This is what we did:

- Incorporated rich multimedia content – audio-visual elements, high-resolution images, infographics, interactivities – to avoid monotony
- Developed the course across multiple delivery platforms
Case Study 3: Online Software Training Course Using Articulate Storyline

- Asked to develop an e-learning curriculum with 50 modules to train their employees at various levels and roles
- Provided existing print manuals to develop the course
- Asked to develop an online learning solution that would run on desktops, laptops, tablets, and Smartphones
Solution: We developed a simulation-based e-learning course using Articulate Storyline to meet the client’s training requirements. The rapid authoring tool also helped us:
- Develop the course within three weeks
- Develop simulation-based e-learning using WebEx to record the simulations
- Hasten the e-learning development process
Using Agile project management also helped us meet the project timeline.
