Store Storyline in a database or repository

Is it possible to store storyline content in a database or repository.

No, I don't mean quiz results and that sort of thing, that's managed in the LMS.

Im talking about the source content. We have produced so far a few dozen stories and expectation is that we have at least 80 before the end of the year. We store them somewhere on a network share and rely on Windows for security, blocking files for developers during editing and keeping version information and backup.

It's all possible but having some kind of repository to manage all this content would be nice, especially as we have 360, which supports somewhat of teamwork.

Hi Dick!

Great question! Storyline 360, Rise, and Articulate Review can all help teams collaborate. Sounds like Team Slides would be what you are asking about, but I'll share the other collaboration tools for you or anyone following along.

STORYLINE 360: 

Articulate 360 Teams get exclusive product features, such as shared team slides that everyone can access right from Storyline 360. Here's how. 

RISE: 

Articulate 360 Teams can easily collaborate on Rise courses to finish projects fast. Team members can create and edit different lessons in the same course at the same time or take turns fine-tuning the same lesson. Here's how.

ARTICULATE REVIEW: 

Articulate Review is a web app included with Articulate 360 that lets you collaborate with stakeholders on e-learning projects and collect in-context feedback. Learn more about Articulate Review here.

And check out this course on the review process. It'll explain to your stakeholders how to use Articulate Review to collaborate on e-learning projects. 

Let me know if you have any questions. I’m here to help!

Hi Leslie,

That course on the review process is great and a good support for our SMEs.

Team slides is new to me, but I will start with it tomorrow! The use of team slides in Storyline will solve at least half of our questions.

However, in team slides, the individual developer is owner of the slide and the only one who can replace it or maintain it. If another developer wants to do some maintenance he has to create a copy where we strongly rely on one single source of the truth. So in our opinion it would be of great advantage if the administrators of the team have all rights to all slides.

Thanks Dick for that feedback on Team slides. We're continuously exploring new features, updates to existing features and customer input is extremely valuable in that process.

You're always welcome to share here in ELH, or with us through a feature request.  

Let us know how things go with the new collaboration features!
