Articulate Storyline Beginner Training 

Articulate Storyline is an eLearning authoring tool that’s simple enough for beginners, but powerful enough for experts. Storyline allows you to create interactive, professional-looking eLearning courses that can be published to web servers, video servers, and/or SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems.

This hands-on, instructor-led, and project-based Storyline workshop focuses on teaching course attendees how to create eLearning without the need for complicated programming or expensive hardware.

The audience for this course is beginner to intermediate Storyline users who need to understand the basics of the software or existing users that need to improve their skills or gain better understanding of the tools.

Note: While not a requirement, some students find it helpful to attend this class using two computer monitors. This will allow for one screen to always display the instructor's screen, and the other for you to use as you follow along with the instructor.

Where is this class held? 

This is a live, online class led by an experienced eLearning developer. Just like an in-person class, it is fully interactive and engaging. The difference between an online and onsite class? No travel! You can participate from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Many of our students choose to stay home from work on these training days, some never even changing out of their slippers! Where applicable, students are able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants throughout the course as they work in real-time to complete activities.

Need something a little more personal?

We understand your team might have specific training needs and we would love to work with you. We offer both online and on-site instructor-led, fully customizeable courses tailored to your Articulate Storyline training needs.
