You’ve never experienced anything like Storyline. We’ve made building interactivity so easy, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
“With Storyline, you can build complex interactions using a set of simple features, making Storyline THE tool for creating amazing e-learning. Your learners will love what you build in Storyline.”
Slide layers let you quickly overlay objects, and trigger content to appear when learners take certain actions. No more duplicating and managing multiple slides. With slide layers, you create, edit, and manage multiple interactions on one slide—so you can author courses faster than ever.
Triggers make things happen. To build interactivity, assign triggers to an object and choose from a menu of easy-to-understand actions—such as “jump to slide” or “show a layer.” Then, designate when you want the action to occur, such as when a learner clicks a certain object. You can apply triggers to just about any object (shapes, buttons, images, characters, text…you name it) and combine triggers to create increasingly complex interactions.
Make objects feel alive by setting them to react to a learner's actions. Set a button to change color after it's been visited, or change the expression of a character when the learner clicks the wrong object. The possibilities are endless.
Experience the flexibility and power of turning any static content into an interactive question or activity. Simply insert images, characters, shapes, or other objects and, with a few clicks, convert them to a drag-and-drop interaction, a graphical multiple choice, and more.
Add intelligence to your course using the variables feature, which lets you present dynamic content based on a learner's activity. Capture information, then evaluate, retrieve, and respond to it later in the course. Remember learner input or assessment results—and use the information later in your course if it meets your criteria.
Add hover-and-reveal and click-and-reveal call-outs to your course quickly and easily with markers. Just place a marker on a slide and choose the content you want displayed, from a pop-up label and descriptive text to audio and video. Content displays when learners click or hover over the marker. Add multiple markers to highlight locations on a map, features on an image, and more.
Lightboxes give you another easy, compelling way to present any type of content. Trigger lightboxes to pop up over a slide when a learner clicks a certain object or player menu item.
With the submit buttons, check box buttons, and radio buttons in Storyline, you can rapidly create interactivity.
Hotspots let you make any portion of an object—from a character's head to an apple in a basket—clickable. Simply layer an invisible hotspot over an area on the object, then trigger it to respond when the learner clicks.
Get personal by capturing learner information, then presenting it later. For example, you can add a field for the learner's name, then address the learner by name later in the course.
Use the mouse objects feature to add a mouse cursor to a screenshot demo or update cursors in software simulations. You get to choose what the cursor looks like—and how it behaves.
If you don't have room to display large images or text boxes in your slide, just add a panel that lets learners scroll the objects vertically.
Assess learner progress any way you want. Storyline is packed with powerful, yet simple tools for creating virtually any type of question.
“I'm constantly amazed by the flexibility and power of Storyline's quizzing features. Who knew creating drag-and-drop activities could be so easy?”
Storyline combines the simplicity of form-based authoring with the flexibility of slide-based editing. The result: it's easier than ever to create 20 different types of questions. Plus, with free-form question types, you can build a question using any objects on a slide.
Creating drag-and-drop interactions is now a breeze. Simply add objects to your slide, choose "drag and drop" from the menu, then assign drag items and drop targets using the form-based editor.
Test learners as much as you want throughout your course—and offer results at multiple points, such as at the end of every chapter or section. Submit results from the final test to Articulate Online or your learning management system (LMS) or combine results from multiple scores to create and report a final score.
Create a question bank to easily group and manage the questions in your course. You can do question pooling from banks—and even randomize questions. If you want to reuse a bank in another course, just import the bank.
Storyline records full video, so you get to choose what to show learners. Record once and edit again and again without re-recording.
“The screen recording capabilities in Storyline are like none other. It's pretty awesome, and that alone should win some awards for Storyline.”
Show learners exactly what you want them to grasp by recording your screen. Insert your recording into a slide as a demonstration, trial, assessment, or video, then easily add captions, characters, and zoom-and-pan effects.
Record your screen once and Storyline automatically segments your activity into multiple step-by-step tutorials. If you make a mistake, you can edit the recording whenever and however you want—there's no need to re-record. Let learners watch how to do a task in view mode, try the task in try mode, and test their mastery of the task in test mode.
Fine-tune your screen recording quickly and easily. Storyline processes video after capturing it, so you can fix mistakes and make edits without impacting the original video file. If you want to change the starting and ending frames for each slide, just use the action fine-tuning editor to adjust them—without re-recording your screen.
