Articulate Rise is an easy to use, rapid authoring tool delivering mobile friendly and web responsive eLearning courses. Articulate Rise comes with some interactive templates but we don’t find feasibility to customize the interactions in the way which Articulate Storyline does. But Articulate Rise has a feature which allows to embed content designed in Storyline. So if you need a template which is not available in Rise then you can design the screen in Storyline and embed it in Rise.

In this blog we will demonstrate how to embed Articulate Storyline 360 blocks in Articulate Rise.

How to Convert Text To Speech Using Articulate Storyline 360

Text-to-speech-in-Articulate-360

In Articulate Storyline 360, a new feature is introduced which is “Text-to-Speech”. This feature is helpful in two ways:

  1. To keep the project cost low, machine generated audio can be used. Just need to add the audio text or the Closed Captions, and machine generated audio is ready.
  2. In an eLearning project, the standard process to record the human voice is once the project is fully approved by the client. In the client review phase, if the course has to be presented to the client using machine audio then the audio has to be generated using another software and then import it in the course. Whereas in Articulate Storyline 360, “Text-to-Speech” takes care of generating machine audio.

Articulate Storyline 360 is one of the most powerful tool to create interactive, engaging and mobile friendly eLearning courses.

Articulate Storyline 360 is the latest version equipped with lots of new features. Still there are few activities which do not come as default and need customization. One of them is Typing Animation. In Articulate Storyline, there is no feature for typing effect. We can create this effect by splitting the text and sync each character with the timeline which is time consuming task.

We created a plug-in for typing effect using JavaScript which will ease the work and saves lot of time.
Before we dive into the process, let’s take a quick peek at the sample we have created using this plugin in which all the typing animations are created using JavaScript:

Custom HTML5 timeline for Articulate Storyline 360

Custom HTML5 timeline for Articulate Storyline 360

Articulate Storyline, is one of the popular e-Learning authoring tools. Storyline is known for its ease in the workflow for developing an E-learning course. It is suitable for both beginners as well as experts due to its familiar interface. The look is very similar to Microsoft PowerPoint. Articulate Storyline uses a component called “Player” inside which our eLearning courses will be played. This player contains some global controls for our course like, Menu, resources, slide navigation controls, volume control, slide timeline etc.

Though storyline adds all these controls to our course player by default, many eLearning developers prefer to build their custom player controls that are client specific. And storyline allows us to fully customize the default player using the “Player Settings” option. But, there is one specific control that storyline doesn’t allow us to customize much. That is course timeline or seekbar.

We can only change the colors of the seekbar but it cannot be moved from its default position. Due to this many developers end up removing the seekbar functionality all together to achieve a fully customized look.

While working for one our client from Canada, they were unhappy with this decision to take off seekbar completely and insisted us to include a customized seekbar for the course which behaves like a default seekbar.

In order to achieve this functionality we have built a seekbar widget just for Storyline 360 which can be placed anywhere on the screen and it works like a default storyline timeline slider / seekbar.

In this blog, we will see how to use our seekbar widget in any Articulate Storyline 360 project.
