Screencast Throwback: Interactive Tables in Articulate Storyline

This is how I created an interactive table using the timeline and states. I used this technique on a recent project, with 30-40 slide objects, and a very tedious looking Triggers Panel, but in the demonstration below, I’ve simplified it to make it a bit more manageable.

I think this technique, using the hidden and normal states for slide objects, can be used for a variety of projects, but I’m confident you can find some very tangible uses for this technique in the form of an interactive table.

Throwback Screencast: Custom Menu in Articulate 360

I was browsing around on Pinterest and came across this Filter Menu. I thought it was a pretty neat interactive menu developed for web, and wanted to see how easily I could recreate it in Articulate Storyline 360. The verdict? It was pretty easy! If you want to see how I created the menu, check out the screencast below (and endure my rambling).

Screencast: Articulate Storyline 3 or Articulate Storyline 360?

*Disclaimer 1 – I still have a horrible sinus infection. I sound like garbage, and I’m sorry for making you endure that.

*Disclaimer 2 – My Articulate 360 went on the fritz this week on my MacBook Pro, so you’ll notice in the Content Library demo that it says “Subscription Required”. I do have an A360 subscription (that is working like a dream on my iMac), and Articulate’s lovely tech support is on the case tonight!

Articulate released Articulate Storyline 3 this week, the answer to many prayers for those seeking a perpetual solution to Storyline 360. In this screencast, I discuss what I think makes the case for Articulate Storyline 360 versus Storyline 3 perpetual license; I also indicate that if these are not features you require, Storyline 3 might be your best bet.
