Say you downloaded some templates from our Free & Premium Storyline template library to create an eLearning course for yourself or your clients. However, you want to tweak a few changes here and there in the templates.

We’ve put together a guide of the list of changes and steps to help you edit the template so that you don’t have to splurge your valuable time to go through various articles or tutorials to do that.

We’ll be covering the following topics in this article –

1) Import the Slide

2) Change the picture

3) Change the text 

4) Slide Master

Let’s begin!

1) Import the slide –

Let’s say you already have a template or suppose you choose and download one of our templates, as shown in the screenshot below and you want to import our slide in an existing storyline source file.

The steps you need to follow are:

a) Open your existing storyline source file in which you want to import the template

b) Then go to file> import> storyline and select the file

c) Once you choose the file, you will see several slide options. Select the slide that you want to import and hit import. 

2) Change the picture –

If you want to change the existing picture on the slide with the picture of your choice, all you have to do is:

a) Right-click the picture on the slide> replace picture> select picture of your choice from the file

The picture will be replaced on the slide.

Step 1

3) Change the text –

You can easily replace the text by following given steps:

a) Select the text box on the slide and replace the text with your content.

4) Make Universal Change to every Slide with Slide Master –

Now you can make changes in one slide and maintain consistency in all the slides with the use of Slide Master. It lets you make changes across the slides by only adjusting it. 

Let’s say you want to add a picture, shape, or text in Slide Master-

a) Open your file> select view> choose slide master> insert picture/shape/text 

b) Once you insert the required shape, text, or image close the master view. To do so, go to slide master> close master view.

This step prevents you from replacing or adding the shape, image, or text in each slide manually.  Just add what you want in the first slide using Slide Master and you will have the same layout or design in each slide.

And you are done! Select your favorite templates, edit them to suit your branding needs, and present them to your audience in style.

We bring you a fantastic selection of articulate storyline templates on several topics such as health, business, marketing, engineering, mechanical, sales force, and more. Browse through this beautiful collection and choose the one that suits your requirements.

    However, if you would like the content to be converted by us, there are two factors to be kept in mind – cost and time. Both are directly proportional to each other. To explain further:

    COST OF CONVERSION

    The cost of conversion depends on several factors. First and foremost being, the availability of the source file, graphical assets and published files. The availability of the source file makes the conversion relatively easy and avoids the creation of course from scratch. If the source code is not available, then we have the option of screen recording the content but that takes longer as the text will have to be extracted using other tools. Also, screen recording works in the content that is not interactive.

    The other factor to be considered in cost is, requirement of any updates or creating new elements like instructional strategy or inclusion of games/quizzes. Would you like to have any enhancements done? All these will factor-in in the cost calculation.

    TIME FOR CONVERSION

    The time taken for conversion is dependant on the complexity of the course because there exists feature disparity between Flash and Articulate 360. The extent of responsive design required, level of interactivity, duration of the course, complexity of the animation, improvement in graphical assets etc. are few of the pointers that will lead us to calculate the time for conversion. It is important to mention that the animation may not be an exact copy of Flash because Adobe features may not be replicated in Articulate Storyline.

    Invariably the option to outsource conversion will work out to be an expensive option. We have come up with a cost and time effective solution.

        For ages, Flash that has been dominatingthe multimedia industry. Year 2020 will see the end of Flash. In 2017 Adobe decided to stop supporting Flash Player. Consequently, from January 1, 2021, the browsers will not support the Flash content. Have you ever wondered why Flash is becoming obsolete? What could be so compelling to abandon such a huge and successful software?


        The answer is that Flash posed a huge security threat on whichever machine it played on. Data was not safe on the systems that played Flash. Some files of Flash could be used to transfer data from one system to another. Secondly, Flash demanded substantial resources to maintain, i.e., it was heavy on memory etc. Therefore, a few years back Apple withdrew from Flash because Flash was proving to be detrimental for battery life and lead to poor performance. This proved to be the beginning of the end of Flash.


        The next question is that how does the phasing out of Flash affect us? It is pertinent to note that all the content made in Flash will STOP working on any of the browsers; whether it is movies, animation or any other form of multimedia. One of the major impact narrows down to e-learning content made in Flash. All this content will not be supported after December 31, 2020!


        What will happen to the course material made in Flash? Will they all become redundant? Is there a way out from this unnerving situation? To our rescue, we have authoring tools to convert all the Flash content to a compatible platform. Authoring tools are used to convert Flash content into a current browser compatible content. These authoring tools allow you to maintain the interactivity level of the course. Through games and quizzes a user can be encouraged to interact thus making learning long lasting and interesting. Such dynamic features are offered by the authoring tools only. Simply converting Flash into plain videos will kill the purpose of learning. Some of the recommended tools are Articulate Storyline360,Adobe Captivate, Lectora etc. that make the conversion achievable. We at eLearning stack use these tools to make new content and covert Flash content. There are several free Articulate Storyline templates ready for you to start on your own.
