Understanding how to use scenes

I'm currently working on my first e-learning project in Articulate360 Storyline and I kept running into the problem of the program shutting down due to not having enough memory. After troubleshooting with Articulate it seems my project is just too big. What I originally did was have my entire project as one scene. The suggestion given to me is to break it up into smaller scenes.

So now I have to break up my training into smaller scenes but I'm really confused on what scenes are, how to use them, and how to connect it all back together once my project is done. Can anyone help point me to some resources to understand this piece better?

Scenes wouldn't do anything for the memory handling.

To be fair, scenes are there to be used how you want to, you could get by and build the most complex course without ever using scenes. I like to build my course in sections using scenes as it is easier to preview. But, you do not have to use them.

Hi Stacy and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out and letting us know what you'd like to accomplish.

I agree with Phil; scenes are more of an organizational tool within the project and a great way to categorize topics if needed.

I tried to track down a support case for you but was unable to locate one. 

Do you have different topics within your project that you could break into smaller courses? That would reduce the size of your course.
