To keep pace with today’s fast-moving world, training organizations are increasingly including the use of more technology – especially eLearning. Articulate Storyline is an eLearning authoring tool built from the ground up with the goal of making the process of designing, developing, and implementing eLearning faster, easier, and more affordable. Using an intuitive interface, Articulate Storyline is easy enough for novices to learn quickly and powerful enough for advanced developers to build highly sophisticated and interactive eLearning. With its easy to use features (no programming required) and robust capabilities, Storyline lets you focus on what’s most important: delivering more effective and appealing eLearning that saves your organization time and money.

The Articulate Storyline Fundamentals Certificate covers the basic building blocks and widgets in Storyline. See the ‘Fundamentals’ course session-by-session course agenda here. The Articulate Storyline for Next Level Design Certificate starts exploring how to leverage all those building blocks and mashing them together, along with thinking through the what's and why's of designing an interaction.

If you don't have a licensed copy of Articulate Storyline, you must download a complimentary trial version prior to the start of the course at: https://www.articulate.com/products/storyline-why.php. The current trial version is Storyline 2 but if you already have Storyline 1 installed, you can still participate in this certificate by downloading Storyline 2 trial version. The two versions are independent of each other and both can be installed on the same computer. While Storyline 2 can support anything in Storyline 1, you will find that Storyline 2 has quite a few new features.
Already using Articulate Storyline and not sure if you have Storyline 1 or 2?
Start by locating your license/serial number by right clicking on your desktop link for Articulate Storyline, then choose ‘properties’ and it should say ‘Articulate Storyline’ (if you currently use Storyline 1) or ‘Articulate Storyline 2’ (if you currently use Articulate Storyline2.) Still can’t find it? Please contact the Articulate directly for assistance at support@Articulate.com.
Your trial period for this software is 30 days from the time you install. Therefore, we recommend that you install the trial version no more than one or two days prior to the first session. This allows you a few weeks to practice after the last session.
