When you’re developing an e-learning course, it’s really helpful if you put supplemental information within easy reach of your learners, so they can access it anytime they want. However, for e-learning designers, sometimes that’s easier said than done—especially when you want to provide media-rich supplements.

Well, great news: with the lightbox feature in Articulate Storyline, it is as easily done as said. You can give learners access to media-rich supplements with a simple click of the mouse. In the following video, you’ll learn how to use Storyline’s lightbox feature to create individual pieces of supplemental content, as well as an entire series of supplemental slides.
