Glossaries might not always be the shining stars of e-learning courses, but they’re a wonderful way to support learners. That’s because they define commonly used terms, demystify industry-, culture- or organization-specific lingo, and spell out critical software or systems acronyms—especially helpful for new learners.
Adding glossaries to your Storyline 360 projects is already easy-peasy with the glossary import/export feature. But if you want a glossary that slips seamlessly into the flow of your course or you prefer a stand-alone resource your learners can reference when they’re stuck, custom glossary interactions like the ones we’ve rounded up here give you some more great options.
From elegant to minimalist, these four glossary downloads are the very definition of useful. Check ’em out!
