New Template! 4 Variations of Course Notes in Storyline and Rise

Aug 01, 2019

Course Notes

This Storyline project demonstrates 4 ways to incorporate student notes in your next project; notes that can be dragged into position on-screen, notes that slide in using a scroll box, a global notepad and using notes in Rise. This project leverages the JavaScript library PDFMake to generate a PDF document that students can download and print, however, this project can also be used with an LMS to store note data.

You can now view and download the template from my site. I've also created a video to demonstrate the published output, review the build in Storyline and explain how the PDF document is generated. Have fun!

Thanks all. I had just completed a project for a company in California that needed a refresh on PDF notes so thought I'd share the latest steps I had taken for this client solution. David / Tom - nice to hear from both of you. Summer is flying by, I'm having lots of fun with the family and our puppy (he's on instagram-

Stephanie this is totally awesome. I was going to write to you about a previous course you did with notes but this is even better. I love the idea having it go to PDF it solves some of the problems I might have with my client. I will let you know how this goes.

Thank you so much for sharing your hard work with the community.

Stephanie, I don't know about the technical issues. I received an upgrade yesterday and after loading it I was able to make the global note work. The message came from Lauren Connelly  at Articulate Support and she said the bug was in update 37 but was corrected in update 39.

So far, it works. Thanks.

Hi, Stephanie. Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic project. It has come in very useful. I was just wondering, were you able to publish this to web? I can successfully publish to LMS and Rise but when trying to publish to web, the output opens on the 'download' page and there is no way to exit it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
