How to Use JavaScript in Articulate Storyline #13

JavaScript in Articulate Storyline #13: Challenge | Recap

Screencast Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to screencast a tutorial to help users learn how to use JavaScript in Storyline.

If you shared an example in the JavaScript e-learning challenge, please consider using the example for this week’s screencast. I’ll update both recaps to reference your video tutorial.

NOTE: Don’t worry if someone already recorded a similar tutorial. The weekly screencast challenges are for you to show what you know using your own personal voice and style.

Topics or Areas to Demonstrate

  • Adding JavaScript to Storyline
  • JavaScript basics for e-learning designers
  • Randomizing numbers or objects
  • Changing background colors

Record Your Screencast

You can record your screencast using any tool you like. Storyline’s built-in screen recorder is one option. Replay works well for including webcam video with your screen recording. Another popular option is Camtasia.

Share Your Screencast

Please use YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia to host your screencast. That will make it easy for me to embed the tutorials in the weekly recap post for each challenge.

You’re also free to bundle your videos into a Storyline project (here’s an example). You’ll just need a place to host your published project. If you need help, I can host your files on our servers.

Ready? Set? Record!

About the Screencast Challenges

The weekly screencasting challenges are ongoing opportunities to teach, learn, and demonstrate your e-learning expertise. You can jump into any or all of the previous challenges anytime you want. I’ll update the recap posts to include your tutorials.

If you have a blog, please consider writing about your challenge entry. We’ll link back to your blog so your video tutorials get even more exposure. If you share your demos on Twitter, try using #ELHChallenge so your tweeps can track your e-learning coolness.
