Course Outline


uring 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.

  • 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

  • Create and Format a Text Box
  • Work with a List
  • Add an Image to a Slide
  • Add a Shape to a Slide
  • Customize a Shape

  • 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.

  • 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
