At Yukon Learning, we love opportunities to share and teach tools like Articulate Storyline 360. We get to experience the excitement from new Articulate 360 developers as they realize the options available to them—and sometimes feelings of intimidation. Storyline 360 can do so much… How do I know which triggers are best? Fortunately, the Storyline 360 interface is intuitive, and we’re here to help explore it. So, read on for one of our common as-heard-in-training questions: “How Do I Use ‘When the Variable Changes’?” Let’s break things down… Utilizing the
Can a Slider or Dial Be a Quiz Question?
Want to make your e-Learning quizzes more interactive? Let’s dial things up and slide into how to use sliders and dials in Storyline 360 quizzing! The DevLearn conference is a great opportunity for us to connect with e-Learning industry peers. It’s also a chance to take our hands-on Articulate 360 training to a new locale! We recently had the opportunity to convert one of the questions we receive during our Storyline 360 training into a DevLearn conference session. We had a blast showcasing how to use sliders and dials in
Can I Reset a Variable?
We explore all the variables of variables during our hands-on Storyline 360 training, and in doing so, we so often stumble upon e-Learning interactions that would benefit from a variable reset. Join us today as we answer this “as heard in training” question: “Can I Reset a Variable?” In Storyline 360 e-Learning development, there are many motivations to reset a variable, otherwise known as “initializing.” (And luckily, initializing a variable is easier than you might think—often requiring just one additional trigger.) Not only can initializing variables become necessary when developing
What If I Need the Stops in My Slider to Be Uneven?
In the final portion of our hands-on Advanced Storyline 360 training, we end the session with some fun, easy, and favorite features of mine: sliders and dials! During this segment, we task the students with creating a fairly simple interaction that we use often: showing a timeline of events. In that exercise, the slider has eight stops, and the stops are equal distance apart. When teaching this, however, we’re often asked, “What if I need my slider to stop at points that aren’t equal distance apart?” While there are varying
How Can I Use the “=NotAssignment” Trigger in Storyline 360?
UPDATE! As of October 2019, the Storyline 360 trigger wizard was updated to use the same intuitive language as the triggers panel so it’s consistent and understandable. For 360 users, “Assignment and Not Assignment” have been replaced with “Set and Toggle.” The language is different, but the steps listed below still work. Learn more about the new trigger workflow here, and then read on! Although not used as often, the “=NotAssignment” (also known as “toggle”) variable/trigger can be a great way to help you create engaging interactions for your learners!
