Part 4: Fall 2016 Labs

50 Articulate Storyline with Andrea Mason — 11.18.2016

Last week’s Active Teaching Lab was about using Articulate Storyline as a high-end tool for interactive content.  Andrea Mason, from Kinesiology, shared her story of using Articulate Storyline to create an online version of her course.


  • Traditionally Windows-only, Articulate is breaking into the cloud space with 360 — easy to use and flexible, but not cheap.
  • For your first time producing interactive content, start small; you don’t need to use all the bells and whistles in your first go.
  • If you’re recording, use a good mic. Students are more tolerant of bad video than bad audio.

Active Teaching Labs are held every Friday from 8:30-9:30am in room 120, Middleton Building. Check out the upcoming labs or read the recaps from past labs. To stay informed about upcoming Labs, check back to this website or sign up for regular announcements by sending an email to
