Articulate Storyline was created to help its users create engaging and interactive courses, thereby taking eLearning to the next level. It makes the job of an eLearning designer very simple. Let’s now explore the five best features of Articulate that helps you to create next generation eLearning courses.
Create Courses That Work on Multiple Devices Without Any Extra Work
If you are an eLearning specialist, you have to build courses in such a way that works on multiple devices. And because your course has to work on multiple devices doesn’t mean you have more time to work or you have to work long hours to meet deadlines. Articulate provides a solution for this as it helps you to create interactive multi-device courses without much effort.
Unlike many other authoring tools where you might have to modify the course to suit other devices that a learner might use, Articulate Storyline does the work for you. All you have to do is simply build the course and Articulate’s responsive player does the rest of the job for you. It also provides a preview of how the course will appear in other devices in the preview window. You can just click through the different device and orientation icons to see how the course you created automatically adjusts for other devices.
Once you publish the course using Articulate, you can see that the responsive mobile course player automatically scales to fit the screen that the learner is using thus providing the best experience for the slide-based eLearning courses. Another important fact is it doesn’t require any special app – it works in the device’s browser. On smaller devices such as smartphones and tablets, the size of the player is reduced without rearranging the content in the slides and aligning the course content center staged.
Build Courses Faster
Gone are the days when you have to start the work with a blank slide. Thanks to the new Content Library in Articulate that helps you to create professional-looking courses faster. The content library has a library of professionally designed, customizable slide templates and characters that can be readily used to create professional eLearning courses. So all you have to do is select a template from the library, insert content and publish it – all just using Articulate.
Articulate simplifies and speeds the review process by integrating with the new tool – Articulate Review. This offers a solution to the challenges faced during the review cycle as it enables the stakeholders to review the courses and provide feedback in a single place. The review comments can be placed next to the slide that is being reviewed, making it faster and easier to collaborate with others.
The pre-built interactive objects enables the learners to manipulate data and explore cause-and-effect relationships. With all the new triggers added, creating interactive courses is easier than ever. With the help of these powerful features, you can create interactive courses easier.
