Imagine you are tasked with creating an e-learning course that will captivate your Fortune 500 employees, helping them learn vital skills while engaging their interest. You’ve chosen Articulate Storyline as your tool, but how can you ensure success? In this post, we will explore four tips for building successful courses with Articulate Storyline.
1. Start with a strong foundation: Set clear objectives and outcomes
Begin by identifying the objectives of your course. What do you want your learners to achieve by the end of the course? Be specific, and break down complex goals into smaller, manageable objectives. By setting clear outcomes, you ensure that your course has a strong foundation and purpose.
“Defining the objectives and outcomes helps us design the course in a way that meets the needs of our employees,” says a Learning & Development Manager at a Fortune 500 company.
2. Engage your learners: Create interactive and dynamic content
Articulate Storyline offers a variety of features to create engaging content. Use interactive elements, such as quizzes, simulations, and drag-and-drop activities, to keep your learners actively involved. Integrate multimedia, including video, audio, and images, to appeal to different learning styles.
One L&D professional states: “We’ve found that adding interactive elements to our courses has significantly increased engagement and retention of the material.”
3. Make it accessible: Ensure your course is user-friendly and meets accessibility standards
Design your course with all learners in mind, ensuring it is easy to navigate and meets accessibility standards. Use clear, concise language and avoid jargon whenever possible. Organize content in a logical manner and provide clear instructions for completing tasks.
“I appreciate courses that are easy to use and accessible to all employees, regardless of their experience or background,” shares an employee at a large corporation.
4. Test, iterate and gather feedback: Continuously improve your course
Test your course throughout its development and after completion, gathering feedback from a diverse group of learners. Use this feedback to refine your course, ensuring it meets the needs of your audience and stays current with industry trends and best practices.
A senior L&D expert explains: “We use feedback from our learners to make improvements to our courses, which ensures they remain relevant and engaging.”
