Articulate Your Storyline: Rapid eLearning Development for Beginners

Instructional Designers today are being called upon to do more than Assess and Design for eLearning. With budget constraints and the availability of user-friendly software, we are also becoming Developers and Implementers.   

In this highly interactive session, we will explore some of the basic tools and functionality of Articulate’s Storyline authoring tool to bring our designs to life. The intuitive interface makes it easy to customize content, add interactivity, and publish eLearning courses without knowing anything about programming.

To participate, you may download a free 30-day trial version of Storyline and bring your own computer but it is not required if all you wish to do is observe. No computers will be supplied.

Upon completion of this workshop you will be able to: 

  • Create content slides that synchronize animations with audio
  • Develop an interactive scenario with layers, triggers, and interactive markers
  • Publish a story

This session will be broadcast via WebEx for those who wish to attend remotely. Details available upon confirmation of registration.
