6 Software Training Examples That Will Make Learners “Screen” With Joy
Employees often come to an organization with a wide range of technical experience. But one thing is certain—software training empowers employees to perform more efficiently and confidently.
For intuitive software, a simple screencast can orient your employees to an app’s layout and features. Other times, you might need to give learners a more hands-on learning experience with a simulation that creates a risk-free practice environment.
In either case, if you need some inspiration for creating software training, check out our favorite community examples. From screencasts to simulations, you’ll find creative solutions to spark your next project!
Rise 360: Project Management Software Training
Use labeled graphics, multimedia, and interactive blocks to give learners both an introduction and inspiration for how to use new software like Madison McCartney does in this Rise 360 course.
Storyline: E-Learning Heroes 101
Guide learners through the step-by-step process to create an E-Learning Heroes community profile with this helpful simulation from Allison LaMotte.
Storyline: Audio Editing Simulation
Get learners comfortable using audio editing tools before even downloading any software, thanks to this simulation by Josh Petermann that includes both a view and try mode.
Storyline: Learn Triggers Software Simulation
Safely introduce new software to learners and let them practice risk-free, like in this handy simulation by Richard Watson.
Storyline: Review 360 Software Simulation
Replicate the experience of using new software by taking inspiration from this helpful Review 360 software simulation created by the Community Team.
Storyline: Video Editing Controls Simulation
Give learners a realistic opportunity to practice interacting with video editing software just as Dan Sweigert does in this guided simulation.
