Articulate Storyline

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, I am extremely interested in E-Learning. In my E-Learning course we learned how to create interactive learning modules in a program called Articulate Storyline. This is a program that we referred to as “PowerPoint on steroids” because it had a very similar workspace layout to PowerPoint.

The major differences include the fact that you can edit a timeline and keyframe positions of objects on the screen similarly to Adobe Premiere or Adobe Flash. What is extremely interesting about this program is that it exports the project as a folder with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files. These files can be uploaded to a server and shared as interactive online lessons. A good deal of animation can be used in these lessons as well. Because the modules are interactive, users can click and make things happen, characters, move, or text appear.

Here are some videos of people explaining their animation techniques in Articulate Storyline.
