To open a question bank so you can add and edit slides, go to the Slides tab on the ribbon, click Question Banks, and select the name of the bank you want to open.
To add slides to the current question bank, go to the Slides tab on the ribbon and choose any slide type. (Question banks can contain any kind of slide, except result slides.)
Here’s a brief description of each slide type (or source) with links to learn more.
Save time by creating and reusing your own custom templates, or download templates from the E-Learning Heroes community.
Maintain a consistent design and save time by importing slides from PowerPoint presentations, Quizmaker quizzes, Engage interactions, and other Storyline projects. You can even import quiz questions from Excel spreadsheets and text files.
Use this option when you want to import slides from other question banks or scenes in the same project.
You can either copy (duplicate) those slides in the open question bank or move them out of the original banks/scenes into the open question bank.
You can’t record screencasts directly into a question bank. However, you can record screencasts into a scene in your project, then copy/paste them into a question bank.
Use the clipboard options on the Home tab to cut, copy, and paste slides in the open question bank. You can even use the clipboard options to copy slides from scenes in your project and paste them into a question bank (and vice versa).
To duplicate a slide, right-click it and choose Duplicate Question, or just press Ctrl+D.
To delete a slide, press the Delete key on your keyboard or click Delete Question on the Home tab.
You can also open a question for editing in either of these ways:
- Go to the Home tab on the ribbon and click Edit Question.
- Right-click the question and choose Edit Question.
The easiest way to rearrange slides in a question bank is to simply drag them with your mouse to a new location.
You can also reorder slides in either of these ways:
- Go to the Home tab on the ribbon, click Move Question, then choose Up or Down.
- Right-click a question, scroll to Move Question, then choose Up or Down.
Locking slides affects how they're randomized and drawn into your course. For example, you might lock a slide to the top of your question bank so it'll always appear first in your quiz—even if you randomize your question draw.
To lock a question, go to the Home tab on the ribbon, click Lock Question, and choose one of the locking options. You can lock a slide to the question immediately above/below it or to the top/bottom of the question bank. If you change your mind, you can remove the lock in the same fashion.
Manage the properties of your question bank slides—such as how they advance and which navigation controls they have—using the slide properties panel in the lower right corner of the screen. Learn more about slide properties.
