STP106 Organizing and Streamlining Your Storyline Course
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM Tuesday, March 26
Expo Hall: Tools & Platform Stage
Uh-oh. That course you built in Storyline two years ago is due for a major revision. What happens when you open the original source file? Or what happens if someone else has to revise it and opens up your source file for the first time? Did you just cringe a tiny bit thinking about the lack of cleanup you did, or the completely disorganized state of the project? What if you had some concrete methods to ensure organization, efficiency, and economy in your source files to avoid “old course dread”?
In this session, you’ll learn tips and tricks on general course maintenance, like cleaning up unused objects, organizing your slide timeline, and moving ancillary information off the main slides in order to focus on your content. You’ll also learn ways to minimize files and reuse course assets. Finally, you’ll explore how to use spreadsheets to track progress and style sheets to document design choices. You’ll leave this session with methods to organize and structure your courses in a way that reduces the pain of the revision process for you and your organization.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why it’s a good practice to have an organized, well-structured course
- How to clean up your course to make it easier for later revisions
- How to organize course assets for efficiency and reusability
- How to use spreadsheets and style sheets to manage the development process
