Articulate Storyline Beginner Training

Articulate Storyline is an eLearning rapid development 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 and SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems. 

This hands-on, instructor-led, and project-based workshop focuses on teaching attendees the most important and essentials features of Storyline. As developers and the workbook authors, we understand the areas that matter the most to any new users, and we'll get you there in just 2-days. 

Topics discussed include the Storyline U/I and views, workflow discussions, project setup, adding content and interactivity, states, layers, triggers and conditions, variables, creating assessments, publishing, best practices, and more. 

The audience for this course is a beginner to intermediate Storyline users who need to understand the core features of the application or existing users that need to improve their skills or gain a better understanding of the storyline workflow.

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 an 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! 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.

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 customizable courses tailored to your Articulate Storyline training needs.
