Rapid development tools are useful for developing eLearning courses fast. By using these rapid authoring tools, we can create the corporate elearning courses with minimal programming skills. They save your time and money with pre-defined templates, animations, interactivities and themes. One of the popular rapid authoring tools used for developing corporate elearning courses is Articulate Storyline.
Here, I would like to share information about various screen types, which we can create using Storyline that save a lot of time in developing engaging eLearning courses.
1. Text + Image
This is a simple screen type that is useful to show text and an image. This format is used, when we have content with an image. The image’s position can be adjusted anywhere in the screen.
2. Rollover + Text
This is another screen type that we can develop using Articulate Storyline. Rollover screens are useful to show an explanation of an on-screen point in a pop up. For example, if you want to explain the different parts of a product, you can use rollovers. When a learner rolls his mouse on each part, the description will be displayed in a popup.
3. Slideshow + Rollover + Text
This is another screen type, with slideshow, rollover and text. Slideshows are useful, when you want to present information in a series.
4. Click on Tabs + Text
This is another interesting screen type that we can create using Articulate Storyline. When the learner clicks on a tab, the related content and image are shown.
This type of screen is used when you want to explain different scenarios. For example, see the below screen shot. Here, there is a screen with different scenarios in it. When a learner selects a particular scenario, he can access the related information. After he completes the information on the selected scenario, he will be redirected to the main screen where he can select another scenario.
This type of screen is useful, when you want to present a conversation between two people. Here is the example of this screen type.
These are some of the screen types, which we can easily create using Articulate Storyline. I hope you find this blog informative. Do share your views.
