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.

Adding audio

Incorporating audio into your story will appeal to auditory learners, enhance accessibility (when used in combination with textual elements), and add some personality and realism to otherwise lifeless content.

Storyline allows you to easily import, record, and edit audio files. We'll go into further detail about using audio in Storyline in Chapter 3 , Creating a Content-Rich Story. So, for now, we'll just jog your memory in relation to how easily you can add audio files to your project.

To insert audio, you will select Audio from the Insert tab, and you will have two options:

  • Audio from File...

  • Record Mic...

To add audio from a file, select Audio from the Insert tab and then select Audio from File.... You can then browse for the desired audio file and select Open.

To record audio, select Audio from the Insert tab and then select Record Mic.... You will then be presented with the Record Microphone menu, where you can record, playback, rewind, and delete recorded audio.
