During a recent Rapid e-Learning Design course, one of my students asked if it would be possible to create a “parking lot” space where her learners could write notes as they went through the course. She also asked if they would then be able to see a summary of those notes at the end of the course and print them for their review. Although there are many different ways to design something like this, most options will likely involve some use of text variables. After doing some further experimenting in
I love the scrolling panel in Storyline…Is there a way to make it automatically scroll? This is a great question! We liked this question so much, in fact, that we’ve now added the solution to our workshop materials. Let’s jump right into how to build the auto-scrolling panel, and then we’ll look at some possible use cases. Building the Scrolling Panel 1. Insert a Scrolling Panel Tip: Keep in mind that the scrolling panel may cover your content, so you’ll want to make sure it’s out of the way.
During Articulate training sessions, we often encounter questions that make us think of the new possibilities within Storyline 2.

The more we talked, the more excited I became at the possibility of creating a timeline that would not only be a more robust course design, but also more memorable and engaging for the learner! Take a look at what
While covering lightboxes in a recent Storyline 2 training session, someone commented, “I really like the way lightboxes look…how would I use them in my courses?” This question is always one of my favorites because it’s also one of my favorite Storyline features–lightboxes! Well, if you’ve been to one of our classes, you’ll know a common theme is “There’s never any one way to do something in Storyline.” The same goes for this feature. While there are numerous possibilities, let’s take a look at three common uses of lightboxes. 1.
