Bringing advanced interactivity to your Articulate Storyline eLearning project, managing the display of content, and the ability to control the learner’s experience will require an understanding of triggers and variables.

If you have been using Storyline for a while or even if you are fairly new to Storyline and still haven’t been able to wrap your head around triggers and variables, this intensive 3-hour course is for you. During this online, live, totally hands-on course, you’ll get a chance to use triggers, variables, and conditional logic to create an interactive game.

By the time you have finished this course, you’ll be well on your way to demystifying both variables and triggers, features that many consider to be the most powerful aspect of developing eLearning in Storyline.

Who Should Attend?

  • Current Storyline and eLearning developers that need to understand triggers and variables
  • Developers that need to bring more interactivity and control in their courses

Understand the difference between Text, Number, and Boolean variables and learn how and each type can be used in building interactions and logic with Storyline

Controlling layers with variables and conditional triggers

Layers that include feedback and other content can be most useful when shown and hidden based upon certain conditions in a slide or course. See how you can use states and variables to make that happen.

Building a game based on variables and conditional logic

Many games in eLearning utilize variables and scoring. See how you can adjust a number variable and play media with conditions.

Triggers and sliders

See how sliders can be fun and useful in making interactions, particularly when accompanied with triggers, conditions, and states.

I really enjoyed this class (Adobe Captivate Variables and Actions 101: An Introduction) and thought the instructor (Anita Horsely) was extremely knowledgable on advanced Captivate subjects. It's obvious she works with the product daily.
