By: Ashley Chiasson, Jeffery Batt

Overview of this book

Storyline is a powerful e-learning authoring tool that allows you to take your creativity to the next level. However, more often than not, projects don't require such complex interactions, leaving Storyline's full capabilities untapped. This book will provide you with the information you need to take your Storyline development up a notch by leveraging the full suite of possibilities Storyline has to offer. You will be provided with a refresher of the key concepts before we take you deep into the exciting world of enhanced interactivity, variables, and even some JavaScript—oh my! With downloadable activities, you can either follow along and compare your output, use the activities as they are, modify the activities to suit your own needs, or reverse-engineer the activities to better understand how they were developed.

Preparing a story

By now, you probably know how to prepare a new story, but you need to be aware of your options. As someone who tends to start from the ground up with my development, New Project is usually the selection I make. However, depending on how you prefer to author e-learning, it might be easier to import from a previously built project or template. This comes in handy if you prefer authoring in PowerPoint or if someone else is developing the branding guidelines and/or templates for your project. The point is that you have options, and they are as follows:

  • New Project: Create your story by starting afresh, with a blank canvas

  • Record Screen: Record screen content to integrate into a new story

  • Import: This option allows you to import content previously developed in the following softwares:

    • Microsoft PowerPoint

    • Articulate Quizmaker

    • Articulate Engage

    • Articulate Storyline

    • You are also able to import questions from text files or Microsoft Excel
