In a recent custom virtual training, a student asked for help in creating scenario-based courses in Storyline. When the scenario arrived to a point where the learner received a quiz question, they wanted the learner to not only be able to review content they had already seen, but to also highlight important information. The main consideration here was that they did not want the information highlighted on the original slide, only when being reviewed. While there are several ways one might accomplish this, one of the easiest ways is to
There’s one moment in particular that brings me extra delight as an instructor during our Storyline workshops. It’s that look of awe from participants when we draw attention to a trigger that works because of the sequential order of the triggers themselves. As you may know, triggers execute all of the action in our Storyline builds. Aside from a few timeline-based events, we see most of our slide actions listed in the Triggers Panel. However, the sequential order of triggers within the panel can also be significant. You may or
I love teaching Storyline to folks, and I love teaching every session. However, if I had to pick a session that would be my favorite to teach, it would be when we focus on quiz questions. In Storyline, they’re so easy to build! (Although, remember to take the time to craft well-written questions in the first place!) The standard, “out of the box” quiz options are amazing! You get great states (how the objects look) and layers (for question feedback). But it’s inevitable…a question we get asked in almost every
When we cover Player design and publishing during our hands-on Articulate training, a very common “as heard in training” question arises from nearly every training: “How can I restrict the navigation of my course so the user can’t skip ahead?” Along with selecting the option to restrict navigation, there are a few related factors we need to consider. Let’s also look at some tips you may find helpful when using restricted navigation. Restricting Navigation Why would we want to restrict navigation? After all, hasn’t our course been developed so brilliantly
The questions we address here on The Articulate Trainer originate with questions that our students ask during our hands-on Articulate training. Some are unique, while others are more commonplace. When discussing the Player, one question we are frequently asked is whether or not it’s possible to leverage the simplicity of an e-Reader glossary feature. As usual, there are many ways to make something like this happen. Let’s take a look at one possible solution. Building Your Slides The first step is to build your slide just as you normally would.
