Course subjects

During this first section, you’ll receive a quick primer on the fantastic, and ever-expanding, world of eLearning. You’ll be introduced to some best practices when planning your projects, budgeting suggestions, and you’ll learn about the development process. Along the way you’ll pick up some awesome design tips from effective slide layouts to fonts to scripting to storyboarding.

  • Planning eLearning Projects

  • Budgeting eLearning Projects

  • eLearning Development Phases

  • eLearning Development Process

  • Designing Storyline Slides

  • Fonts and Learning

  • Scripts

  • Storyboarding for Soft Skills

Module 1: Exploring Storyline
During this module you’ll begin to put Storyline through its paces. You’ll open an existing project and explore the Storyline interface.

  • Explore a Finished Storyline Project

  • Explore Slides and Panels

  • Zoom and Magnify

  • Explore Panels

  • Preview the Entire Project

Module 2: Creating Projects
You’ll begin the process of creating an eLearning project that, when finished, will allow learners to lower their credit score. You’ll create a project from scratch, add slides, apply masters, and import content from Microsoft PowerPoint.

  • Create a New Project

  • Apply a Theme

  • Apply a Content Master Slide

  • Insert New Slides

  • Create a New Content Master Slide

  • Apply a Different Master Slide Layout to a Slide

  • Import Content from PowerPoint

Module 3: Add Content
Content is truly king. You’ll add such common slide elements as text, images, characters, and captions. You’ll also learn how to create and format shapes and work with a bulleted list.

  • Create and Format a Text Box

  • Work with a List

  • Add an Image to a Slide

  • Add a Shape to a Slide

  • Customise a Shape

  • Insert a Character

Module 4: Interactivity
You’ll learn how to engage your learner by not only adding buttons, but controlling how a button looks as learners interact with it. You’ll learn about the power of layers, and give learners a place to type text within your lesson.

  • Add Buttons to Slides

  • Change Button States

  • Create Layers

  • Insert a Text Entry Field

Module 5: Triggers and Hotspots
Triggers are arguably the most powerful Storyline feature and are the key to managing interactivity. Triggers can be attached to slides or slide objects. They control what happens when a learner interacts with a slide object or enters or leaves a slide. During this module you’ll put Triggers to the test by adding them to slide buttons. You’ll also work with Hotspots, areas of a slide that can be made interactive. You’ll learn that you can draw a Hotspot on top of anything and quickly use Triggers to initiate the interactivity.

  • Delete Default Triggers

  • Add a Trigger to a Button

  • Hide Player Buttons

  • Add Triggers to Layers

  • Add a Hide Layer Trigger

  • Add a Slide Trigger

  • Add a Conditional Trigger

  • Edit a Trigger

  • Add a Hotspot and Lightbox Trigger

Module 6: Variables
Variables serve as buckets for data. The data can be used to provide feedback to the learner and/or allow you as the developer to create conditional scenarios. For instance, you could use a variable to capture a learner’s name. Once the name has been “stored” by the variable, the name can be displayed over and over again throughout the lesson.

  • Manage a Variable

  • Reference a Variable

  • Create a Variable

  • Manipulate a Variable with a Trigger

  • Create a True/False Variable

  • Create a Trigger to Change a True/False Variable

  • Add a Condition to an Existing Trigger

  • Play Audio with a Conditional Trigger

  • Add a Condition to a Button

Module 7: Audio, Animation, and Video
Research has shown that adding voiceover audio to an eLearning project greatly enhances the learner experience. You’ll learn how to import, record, and edit audio. You’ll also learn how to animate Storyline slides, and how to insert videos.

  • Add Voiceover Audio to a Slide

  • Change Slide Audio

  • Edit Slide Audio

  • Add Silence

  • Record Voiceover Audio

  • Control Object Timing

  • Animate an Object
