Basic Features of Articulate Storyline to Get Started Part 2

In my previous blog, we’ve seen the basic features of the welcome screen of Articulate Storyline such as New Project, Import, Screen recording etc. In this blog, we will learn about the components of the story view.

Now Click on New Project to open a blank project. Below is the Story view of your project. In that you see:

  1. The Ribbon
  2. Scenes
  3. Slides
  4. Triggers Panel
  5. Slide properties panel

click on new project

Let’s explore each of them.

The Ribbon: It contains various tabs such as:

  • Home
  • Insert
  • Design
  • Animations
  • View
  • Help

It also shows the Format tab, when we select any object.

These tabs can be used to perform all functions such as inserting different shapes, pictures, videos, audios; designing the slide; animating objects; viewing slide master and feedback master and more.

  • Scenes: This is very useful in categorizing the slides of different subtopics of our course. For example, we can have slides of a subtopic in Scene-1 and the slides of other subtopic in Scene-2. This helps us avoid confusion.
  • Slides: This is where we present our content, graphics, and animations. We generally cover one topic in a slide.
  • Trigger panel: This area displays all the triggers (Player triggers, slide Triggers and other triggers) of our project.
  • Slide properties panel: This area displays all the properties of the slide. You can see them when, you select a particular slide from the story view.

These are the components in the story view. In the next blog, we will see some of the exciting features of Storyline. So, stay tuned.
