ElNet Masterclass - Articulate Storyline
Presented by Dean Saunders - eCreators
Rapid Development tools are becoming a standard addition to the bookshelf of many learning organisations across Australia and the world. The rapid evolution towards making learning available on the move is also making a rapid climb as technologies become faster and more portable.
The new Articulate Storyline and Articulate Studio allow learning development professionals to produce robust and professional learning objects to achieve these tasks. Much hype has been floating around forums and blogs and mass media in regard to the inability for developers to run flash on IOS devices. Many product developers have not come up with satisfactory options. Articulate is the exception.
With their newly released Storyline product and the soon to be released update 12 for Articulate Studio, eLearning developers can now achieve so much more, across all platforms. Using HTML5 and IOS development compatibility, developers now have the choice of platform without restriction.
This workshop will focus on these new technologies and bind it all together into an informative and interactive one day session.
Throughout the day we will cover:
• Articulate Studio (what’s new)
• Articulate Storyline (hands on)
• Publishing to iPads and IOS devices (hands on)
• Creating emotional connections with learners through technology
• Creative Instructional Design
• The use of Audio and Video
Learners will also take away a large collection of Articulate, PowerPoint and Articulate Storyline source resources to enable them to get up and running quickly using these great technologies.
The session will be fun, interactive and informative, facilitated by Australia’s Articulate guru, Dean Saunders of eCreators.
Dean has worked in the learning space for over 15 years and a genuine passion for learning Dean has worked and consulted with Organizations across Australia from regional to metro including AAMI, IAG and Apia.
In 2007, Dean founded eCreators to enable him push forward and share his vision that all companies should be ‘learning companies’ empowering their employees at all levels to continue on a path of ongoing improvement. Dean believes that this philosophy should be a part of all organizations growth strategies.
Dean is an experienced facilitator and is well known around Australia for the e-learning internal capability courses his organization eCreators runs and his vast experience managing international and domestic development teams across hundreds of different projects
