This certificate program builds upon your basic Storyline knowledge by providing you with the hands-on practice needed to move beyond “out of the box” development and into building more advanced interactions. We'll explore the development of custom interactivity leveraging Conditional Triggers, Custom Object States, Master Slide Layers, Variable Programming and more that will provide you with tons of tips and tricks you can immediately apply to your own projects.

See important 'Technical Requirements' below.

Are you new to Articulate Storyline? We recommend that you complete our Articulate Storyline Fundamentals Certificate program prior to registering for this program.

Program Details: During this certificate program your instructor will guide you, step by step, through the process of using Articulate Storyline to build effective and appealing elearning. Session assignment(s) will be integrated into each one hour segment – teach/demos for 40-45 minutes with 10-15 minutes to work on assignment. This approach will allow participants to practice the concepts taught in that previous segment while still fresh on mind. At the end of a session (3 hours) a final assignment will be distributed for continued self-paced practice between sessions.

A solid understanding of eLearning and of Storyline’s features and functions is required. A basic understanding of computing concepts (zipping/unzipping files, etc.) is also required and a basic understanding of eLearning is helpful. We recommend that you complete our Articulate Storyline Fundamentals Certificate program prior to registering for this program.

Who Should Attend: The certificate is for those who are familiar with the basic features of Storyline such as story view, scenes, slides, layers, triggers, the timeline, importing assets, and creating simple quizzes and interactions.
