Key details

Entry-level course introduces Articulate Storyline, and teaches everything required to build professional-standard, interactive e-learning content.

Articulate Storyline provides everything you need to develop professional-standard interactive courses accessible from any device. It is used by instructional designers, authors of e-learning content and anyone whose role involves developing online training tutorials whether that be in a full-time or part-time capacity.

Introduction to Articulate Storyline provides a thorough grounding for beginners, teaching all key techniques including:

  • Understanding e-learning and planning an Articulate Storyline project.
  • Creating a project, inserting scenes and slides, adding images, animation, and characters.
  • Using all of the different assets and elements, including narration, audio and video.
  • Review questions and quizzes.
  • Publishing your project for the web and mobile distribution to an LMS.

Introduction to Articulate Storyline training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) Articulate Storyline courses.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.

The training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the e-learning development work you do.

Articulate Storyline courses are hosted by Greta Powell, a long-established consultant and trainer with expert knowledge of Articulate Storyline who has worked for some of the biggest companies in Europe.
