Storyline "Advanced Techniques" course now on lynda.com

Hey, everyone: just a note that my Storyline "Advanced Techniques" course is now on lynda.com. It's actually more of an intermediate level course with some advanced features, but might be helpful to those looking to hone their Storyline chops. I'm now working on a Studio 13 course for them.

If you want a bit more description on what the Storyline course covers, see this post on my site.

Happy Friday and may you dream of perfectly executed layers, states, and triggers. --Daniel

My company just started offering Lynda.com accounts as an employee benefit last week and I immediately searched for Articulate courses and saw it.  Very exciting!  I use Studio now, but am so intrigued by the capabilities of Storyline.  I just downloaded the trial last week and am trying to go through the tutorials on here and look forward to checking out your course soon - hopefully before my 30 days runs out!  I don't think I can convince them to spring for Storyline just yet.

Awesome Daniel! Your narration is perfect! Got any tips for a constant 'ehm' sayer?


Hi, Jeff: If "ums" are the main problem, then I agree with Sir Bruce below. Basically, I script the intro and outro and improvise the rest. I also mark up my VO scripts a fair amount: indicating pauses, fluctuation in pitch, and so on. Finished Susan Blu's book awhile back (Word of Mouth) in which she gives some good tips on this. Thanks for listening. --Daniel

Hang in there, Laura. It took me a year to get Storyline after working in Presenter for a couple of years. I did a course in the trial version to show my managers what it could do, and I finally got it late last year. Love, love, love it!

I just spent about 30 minutes on this and it's great. I've been so frustrated trying to learn Storyline...taken several classes online and the original lynda.com one. This is excellent. I look forward to working my way through it.

Only suggestion...some of us are working on a MAC with VM Fusion or something similar. It would help to include those directions when needed (finding the hidden files?)

Thanks for creating another good and helpful resource.

Sue: I agree. I work on a mac, too. I promise to address this in the next iteration of the course, and sorry about the "hidden files" thing.

Hi, Nicholas: David Rivers did an "Up and Running with Storyline" which can be accessed at the following link Storyline Up and Running.

My course fills in some of the stuff he didn't cover and goes into much more detail regarding Storyline's most popular features: layers, triggers, states, button, variables and so on.
