Articulate Storyline is very easy for beginners to use, even with little or no guidance. However, it may not take long to find yourself in over your head with all of the features and options. One of the tool’s greatest strengths is its flexibility—there are usually several ways of performing any activity. Because of that, many people discover a method that is not a best practice. Learning some best practices and a handful of lesser-known tips or tricks can be extremely beneficial for Storyline users.Read More
The L&D landscape is a complicated space: There are dozens of genres of software, including LMSs, LRSs, authoring tools, analytical tools, etc. Yet few people understand what function their software is actually meant to accomplish. Given this fundamental misunderstanding of software’s “jobs to be done,” it’s no wonder that companies struggle to make the right purchasing decisions, often ending up with software that is not the right fit for their needs.Read More
Graphics in the world of learning have been generally stuck in two dimensions. This limitation can get in the way of your ability to immerse the audience in a story or explain how complex models or processes work. Being able to add a third dimension would do more than just add flash to the content—it could actually make a real impact by making the content more understandable and engaging. But how can you create and add 3-D objects to your work, particularly when you don’t have the budget to hire specialty developers or buy expensive software?Read More
In Articulate Storyline, a lightbox slide behaves much like a popup window, with all the programmatic logic assigned by a single trigger. While its most common usage is the default out-of-the-box behavior, there are actually many different options for leveraging the lightbox trigger in a variety of ways. It can allow you to quickly solve the problem of where to insert new content; or it can give you a more robust and flexible way of presenting references or resources where they can be accessed globally from anywhere in an eLearning course. These more unusual applications give you easy ways to design a wider range of user experiences in Storyline.Read More

Talent has now become the number-one priority for organizations. And rightfully so: Professionals are making career decisions based on career development opportunities, or the lack thereof.
