The year—and the decade—are making way for the next. On The Articulate Trainer this month, we’d like to reflect back on what 2019 has brought us, and revel in the excitement of 2020.
What a year it’s been for Articulate developers and learners alike! Follow us down memory lane as we reminisce over (just some of) our favorite new features…
Favorite New Storyline 360 Features
- January: Media Library made its world debut
- May: Manage Alt Text and Closed Captions right from the Media Library, and learners can monitor their progress with the Storyline 360 Slide Numbers
- June: Feedback Master Theme Previews
- July: Import and export Glossary terms and definitions between Storyline 360 projects
- August: Insert pictures as states with a single click
- September: While you can still publish your courses to Flash, Storyline 360 goes officially Flash-free for course development
- October: Enhanced trigger workflow allows for collapsing triggers, temporarily disabling triggers for troubleshooting, grouping similar actions, editing any trigger segment directly from a color-coded panel, and Trigger Wizard enhancements like keyboard search and navigation, scrolling functionality, and a simplified, intuitive design
- November: Re-order conditions on any trigger without deleting and rebuilding for more accurate and robust course development, and adjust the Player Properties faster than ever, alongside a now instant player preview
Favorite New Rise 360 Features

- March: Enhancements to XLIFF Rise 360 exports

Favorite Yukon Learning Updates
- Launch of the Yukon Developer Network: A collective of independent e-Learning developers and talented instructional designers operate as extended members of the Yukon Learning team. Apply to become part of this network of Articulate 360 experts here.
- “Bite-size” Micro Courses Come to RapidCourse: You may be familiar with Rapid Course, our off-the-shelf library of e-Learning that provides you with the actual source files so you can customize them for your organization’s unique needs. With our new Micro Courses, you’ll still “Buy the Course, Get the Source” with zero annual or per seat fees, but Rise 360 fans can rejoice as Rapid Course is now available as micro-learning crafted in Rise 360.
- Website Revamp: Now with a new modern feel, our website has undergone a handful of improvements like easier exploration of our development portfolio and recent staff photos so you’re more connected to your Yukon Learning team.
- Hiring the Cutest Team Members Yet: Please welcome to the team, Yukon Learning mascots “Yolanda” and “Leroy!”
Roaring 20s Loading…
Looking back at 2019, everything from Storyline 360’s Slide Number feature to the new trigger workflow and Rise 360 scenario blocks, at Yukon Learning, we find it difficult to imagine how the 20s are going to live up to our current hype. Still, we’re confident that Articulate will continue to pull out all the stops in the decade to come!
Speaking of affecting the future, if you have ideas for new features in the Articulate 360 suite, you can officially request an Articulate 360 feature here!
We’d be remiss if we closed the year without thanking our incredible partners at Articulate and especially all of you! Our entire team would like to extend the utmost gratitude to our customers, partners, and dedicated supporters. We are incredibly honored to work alongside you now and in whatever the future holds.
Best wishes for a rejuvenating transition into 2020.
