Articulate Storyline

Articulate Storyline

Articulate Storyline is a rapid devel­op­ment author­ing tool to cre­ate eLearning cours­es with a sin­gle stand-alone prod­uct that does not require com­put­er pro­gram­ming skills. Storyline has the abil­i­ty to cre­ate vir­tu­al­ly any type of inter­ac­tion, con­di­tion­al inter­ac­tiv­i­ty using vari­ables, pre-built inter­ac­tive objects (such as but­tons, hot spots, data entry fields, mouse objects, mark­ers, and light­box­es), screen record­ings, and soft­ware sim­u­la­tions. In addi­tion, Storyline is eas­i­ly pub­lish­able to iPad and HTML5.

Lesson Outline

The fol­low­ing is a list of pos­si­ble top­ics for you to use as a guide. Your course will be ful­ly cus­tomized to your unique goals, work­flow, and learn­ing pace. Because every course we teach is ful­ly cus­tomized to each group, the fol­low­ing list of top­ics to be learned should be con­sid­ered a guide­line, one that will be expand­ed or altered as required to fit your needs.
