1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, March 23



eLearning authoring tools like Articulate Storyline 2 and Presenter are powerful applications to enrich eLearning experiences.

In this session, you will learn design tips and strategies used by elite professionals in the craft of eLearning with Storyline 2 and Presenter. Whether you are a trainer or instructional designer (or even none of the above), looking for fresh ideas on how to leverage animated characters in your eLearning courses, or simply want to see what these applications can do, this session is the one for you.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How Storyline2 character states are used in animation
