JavaScript functionality is integrated with Articulate Storyline and can be a great way to create more customizable experiences with this tool. However, many users are either intimidated by JavaScript or don’t know where to begin learning it. If you have been looking for a true beginner course that explains the fundamentals of using JavaScript with Storyline in an easy and understandable way, you just found it!

In this BYOL session, you’ll focus on JavaScript basics within Storyline. You’ll explore the relationship between Storyline, the browser window, and the computer discovering how JavaScript operates across them, as well as the important roles that Storyline triggers and variables play in getting the most out of your JavaScript. You’ll then learn the basics of JavaScript as you use Storyline triggers, variables, and JavaScript to modify elements of the browser, perform simple calculations and comparisons, and create dynamic content in Storyline.

  • Key JavaScript (JS) basics
  • How JS interacts with the browser window by creating some basic JavaScript in Storyline
