Best Practices/ Methodology to creating online training in Storyline 3.
I know this is a broad question but I am developing my first on line training course using Storyline 3. I have viewed online courses and read books on Storyline which focus mainly on functionality. I understand what it does and how it works but I feel stuck on where to begin, what order things should be done in and also finding or creating the right template for my project. What I really need to know is what is the flow for design, what should my process be?
I have an outline and I have created a story board. I am having a challenge choosing a look and feel for my project. I have searched free downloads and tried several but they never seem to function properly either because they were created with 360 or in an alternate version of either Power Point or Storyline which is not compatible with my version.
My project will have slides, a menu, several modules that can be viewed independently of each other (a la cart) with audio of a narrator voice and two character's voices. Is my next step to just start adding content to slides, worry about slide design, and bells and whistles later? Because I feel like I don't necessarily know from the start what I want each slide to contain in terms of functionality, buttons, hover overs etc. I feel like that will come later as the course begins to take shape -or am I off in my thinking about that? At what point does the audio get added?
Can anyone share with me their process and or methodology and best practices to begin and work though the process?
