Get tooled up: ELearning content creation

Start your learning journey right here!

September’s digital theme will be ELearning content creation using Articulate Storyline.

Online learning continues to be BIG business in 2023, offering the benefits of anytime, anywhere learning to anyone with access to a modern mobile device and web connection.

Storyline is one of the most popular tools for creating learning content. A free trial with some limitations is available. Part of the Articulate 360 platform, Storyline is used to create slide-based content including interactive slides and quizzes. Storyline content can be exported (as a SCORM / xAPI package) for use in modern LMS and online learning platforms including Udemy, Skillshare, Learndash, Moodle and even plain WordPress. If you’re interested in choosing a business-level LMS to host your content, start here!
