Storyline 360 is a coherent eLearning software created by Articulate 360. It creates interactive, immersive and engaging learning experiences – utilising video, simulations and responsive gestures.
If you need training or online courses for your team or have any other eLearning needs, Storyline is a great tool you should consider. (Plus, we know how to use it!)
Who Uses It?
The largest group of Storyline users will come from a training background. These individuals/groups would use Storyline to edit content and distribute it to their learners. These groups of users include corporate trainers, who might use Storyline to author software or product demos, simulations and compliance training. Sales support people have been known to use Storyline to create compelling product demos and simulations for the products they sell to consumers.
What Can It Be Used For?
Studio allows users to edit slides using PowerPoint, while Storyline 360 allows the user to author courses using a single standalone program. Storyline supports eLearning content creators to create product demonstrations and shows learners how a product performs. Also, software simulations show the software or a specific feature of that software in action. For example, a “one-shot simulation” can be used for past learning courses. Learners can indulge in educating themselves on different features of the software or process. They can experiment with the workings and change/tweak responses if they get things wrong, allowing them to understand complex processes or concepts.
Whereas “learn by example” simulations administer several situations for the learner and encourage them to intervene to determine further courses of action. The decision made by the learner is imperative for achieving the outcome, and through multiple attempts, learners observe the consequences of their actions. This type of simulation encourages learners to think logically and cognitively.
Conjointly, quizzes can be created to test learners’ comprehension of the content they have studied. There are many benefits that can emerge through the use of quizzes on Storyline, with the fundamental result being that it motivates people to learn. Many eLearning courses create what is known as the “pre-test” which is essentially an insight into what learners need to look out for throughout the duration of the course. This helps implement the retention of information because they are so focused on the task at hand. When individuals miss a question, they will more likely be motivated to pay attention to that topic in the course when it arises, in order to not make the same mistake and miss that question again.
During your eLearning course, taking a break and reviewing what you have learned after each section is always a good idea. Repetition is an important element of learning, and an effective way to repeat content is through quizzes. Generally, these quizzes are not graded, considering the purpose is not to assess learning, but to provide learners with a way to remember what they have learned.
