    Here's a bit more about each of the choices, and links to the tutorials that walk you through how to use them:
    • Templates: The Articulate community offers several templated layouts specifically designed for e-learning courses, and you can find them here. This is also where Storyline keeps copies of any course of your own that you've saved as a Storyline template.Templates are a great way to leverage and re-use existing content.
    • Basic Layouts: The options here are based on the Slide Masters and Slide Layouts associated with the project that's currently open. Storyline comes with several default layouts you can use, but you can also customize the layouts and add new ones.
    • Quizzing: This option allows you to insert a graded question, a survey question, or one of several freeform-style interactions (including popular options such as drag-and-drop and hotspot). You can also use this option to insert questions from an existing Question Bank or to insert a result slide that shows learners how they performed on your quiz questions.
    • Screen Recordings: Choose this option to create and insert a video of anything on your screen. Your screen recording can be a simple movie that learners watch as part of your course, or it can be an interactive video that allows learners to try or test their knowledge by clicking specific areas or entering data.
    • Import: Use this option to import content from an existing PowerPoint file, an Articulate Quizmaker quiz, an Articulate Engage interaction, or another Storyline project. Find more details on how to work with imported content here.
