This is the third post in a series of “Articulate Storyline – A Boon for Learning Designers and Stakeholders“. In case you missed the previous post, here it is “Rapid eLearning – Challenges and Solutions”.
Last year we have developed 66 projects with Articulate Storyline and we found it is easy to work with Articulate Storyline. In this blog I will be sharing some of the fabulous features of Articualte Storyline that have impressed our production team.
Ease of use
Working on Storyline is as easy as working with PowerPoint, Storyline’s interface look and feel is much like PowerPoint interface. It is a beautiful tool that keeps developers exited to try their hands. You can develop simple to complex interactivities with Storyline’s Triggers and Variables. Triggers are programmable actions with which you can create simple to complex interactivities that doesn’t require any programming skills
One-stop shop for Various Characters
Ask a Graphic designer the challenge of getting the right images with the right expressions for an eLearning course. Developer have to rely on external sources to secure the right images, which is expensive and time consuming. Articulate has addressed this problem by including many illustrated and photographic characters with variations for each character. You can make more than 47,500 combinations of characters, expressions and poses for your courses. Now the job of a graphic designer or a developer become easy to find the right image of this choice.
Easily Include Interactions
Rapid eLearning is always boring and ineffective since they have limited interativities, but Articulate storyline has given a different touch to Rapid eLearning by allowing developers to easily include interactions in course. Gone are the days where a developer has to worry scripting code in order to develop interactions. Now Articulate made it look quite simple by allowing developers to include interactivity without scripting code. With features like Triggers, slide layers, States and variables you can build even the most complex interactions. This is a definite reason to prefer Articulate Storyline
