Organizations have made huge investments in Flash-based legacy courses. Until a few years ago, Flash was a prominent authoring tool; thanks to its ability to create an extensive range of animations and interactivities. However, with the end of Flash by 2020, organizations have realized that it is imperative to convert their Flash-based courses to HTML5. Since the present generation is inclined towards mobile learning and perform most of the activities on their mobile devices, it has become necessary to re-purpose the legacy courses such that they become compatible with mobile devices.
When we develop customized eLearning courses, we always make sure that client satisfaction is the ultimate success. In this case study for eLearning, we would like to share one of our recent achievements.
Our client is a leading electronic and electrical devices manufacturer in Canada with more than 10,000+ employees globally. As a top manufacturing company, our client manufactures high-quality resistors and capacitors. The company’s mission is to provide extended support with the changing industry’s demand to build confidence in the stakeholders without compromising the quality.
Prior to providing the solution, we thought to share the root cause for the Right-to-Left (RTL) alignment issue in Closed Caption (CC). One of our clients, who is a leading business trading company in Canada wanted to help their global workforce to get awareness of the ethical standards of business. With a wide range of eLearning services, earlier we designed training programs by producing highly engaging custom content development with the company. So, Company is well aware that Articulate Storyline 360 is a rapid eLearning authoring tool for the development of eLearning courses.
The exact requirement of the client was to develop the courses in English and Right-to-Left (RTL) languages like Hebrew, Arabic, Urdu, etc., to cater the needs of the users in the Middle East.

The English version was developed without any issues. But the most interesting and challenging task was with the Right-to-Left (RTL) Languages.

We took up the challenge and landed with a solution that works with (Right-to-Left) RTL alignment of CC text in Articulate Storyline 360.
