- [Instructor] Before we start using Storyline 360 to author interactive elearning content let's get a feel for what Storyline 360 really is. If you're an experienced user of previous versions of Storyline you can probably skip this movie. Storyline 360 is the latest cloud-based version of Articulate's stand-alone elearning authoring software. It's not to be confused with Articulate 360. Articulate 360 is a suite of applications and tools and that includes Storyline 360. And Articulate's not an application but rather the name of the company that manufactures Storyline 360 as well as a number of other elearning tools that make up the Articulate 360 suite of products, like Rise for creating responsive elearning courses right in your web browser. And like Articulate Review, a web app for getting feedback on your courses. Because it's cloud-based and uses a subscription model you'll always have the latest updates from Articulate. Our focus in this course will be Storyline 360 which allows one to author a variety of elearning courses. Now Storyline 360 is loaded with tools to help authors of elearning content create things like product demonstrations to show learners how a product is supposed to work. Or software simulations to show the software or specific feature of that software in action. It could be used to create branched scenarios that allows learners to focus on relevant content based on the selections they make. And even create soft skills and compliance training to ensure learners keep their skills sharp and comply with various policies and procedures. You can even create quizzes to test a learners comprehension of the content they just absorbed. So who would use a program like 360? Well by far the largest group of Storyline 360 users will come from a training background. These folks will use Storyline to author content and publish it to their learners and they include corporate trainers, who might use Storyline to author software or product demos, simulations and even soft skill and compliance training. Also educators and learning and development personnel with limited programming capabilities would use Storyline for many of the same reasons. Sales and sales support people have been known to use Storyline 360 as well to create compelling product demos, and simulations for the products they sell.
