Renaldo Lawrence covers how to set up your project when using Articulate Storyline 360.
- [Instructor] We're going to have a brief look at the Articulate Storyline interface and start using Articulate Storyline 360 to create our project. The project we're going to create is based on the curriculum I use at Glyn School in London, England to help our Year Nine students between the ages of 14 to 15 learn how to use Adobe Photoshop. To get started, make sure you're in Articulate Storyline 360. I already have it open here. This is the Articulate Storyline 360 Start screen.
On this screen, you can carry out various tasks such as creating a new project, record your screen, or import content from other programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint. Below these options, you have the opportunity to open previous projects you've worked on in the past. Or if you've never opened or created a project before, this area will be blank. Below that, you then have the option to browse for previous projects.
On the right side of the screen, you have different links to help you learn more about the program features. These change at different times such as if there's an update to the program or information which Articulate wishes to share with you. Okay, now that we have looked at the Articulate Storyline 360 interface, let's get started creating our interactive project. From the left side of the screen, choose New Project. Once the project opens, save your project.
I'm going to save my project in the Project One folder I've created and give it the name of Using Photoshop. Click Save to save the project. When looking at the Articulate Storyline interface, you will notice that we have different tabs such as the Home tab, the Insert tab, the Slides tab, the Design tab, the Transitions tab, the Animations tab, the View tab, and Help at the end.
When clicking through each of these tabs, you will see the tools which are relevant to that particular name. For instance, click on the Design tab. If you've ever used Microsoft PowerPoint, then these design templates will be very familiar. If your screen is zoomed out, look at the bottom right of the screen and zoom in using the slider. Notice in the middle of the screen, you have a blank document entitled Untitled Scene.
When I'm starting on an Articulate Storyline 360 project, the first thing I always do is to name both the scene and the individual slide. To name a scene, right by the red flag, to the right of it, double-click on the title Untitled Scene and type Year 9 Photoshop Introduction. The red flag means that this is the first scene in our project.
Press Enter to confirm. Now, below the slide, double-click on the text and type the name Photoshop Introduction. Press Enter, save your project. Now, we've named both the scene and the title slide, and set up our project.
