This very practical course will empower you to start designing visually engaging, interactive and effective elearning for your organisation using Articulate Storyline 2.


No experience in using Storyline 1 requirement. A working knowledge of the Windows operating system and experience using PowerPoint would be an advantage. Experience of developing elearning would also be useful but not essential. Delegates will need to bring their own laptop computer with a working copy of Articulate Storyline 2 installed.
