Jacquelin HutchinsoneLearning Designer & Developer

Tim provides a comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow overview of Storyline and helps the new developer learn the key components to a well developed course. It's well-organized and new developers can work along with an excellent sample project, helping speed them on to eLearning success. This is an excellent resource to get comfortable enough to start your first project.

Emmanuel BarnesSr. Instructional System Designer

Although I’ve worked in Instructional Design for over 15 years, this online course was very helpful in help me understand how that experience translates to the world of eLearning. Very helpful and a quality resource to start my eLearning journey.

Jordon MurrayLearning Technology Specialist

I used to be so intimidated by using Variables. I was never really sure how they worked or why I should be using them in the first place. Tim does an excellent job explaining the purpose of variables and how/when to use them. If you're looking to take your Articulate Storyline skills to the next level, this course will do it!

Jennifer TullyLearning & Design Specialist

As someone changing careers and looking to transition into eLearning and instructional design, I found this course very valuable. It gave me just what I was seeking - a comprehensive understanding of the entire design and development process from start to finish. Thanks, Tim, for providing me with this much-needed guidance and insight.

Melissa MooreeLearning Developer

After reading Tim's book, I went ahead and purchased his online course. Although I've been working as an eLearning designer for several years, this course help to remind that there's still a lot I can learn! I really like the way this course outlines the steps for planning your eLearning project. This is a step that is often forgetting.

Jeanne PerroneEducational Consultant

As someone who is very new to Storyline, I was a bit nervous that I would not be able to follow along. The style of this course made me feel comfortable. I was able to work at my own pace. I look forward to learning more about Storyline and checking out other courses here in The eLearning Designer’s Academy.

Cheryl HopkinsSr. Learning Experience Designer

I just started a new job and my boss enrolled me in this course. I just finished it and I love the way it outlines the eLearning process from beginning to end. I also really enjoyed all of the advice Tim provides on working with SMEs.

Susan RookerAcademic Admin. Assistant

Tim walks the designer through the first steps of creating an eLearning course with Articulate Storyline. He often references PowerPoint, so if the designer has even a foundational knowledge of PowerPoint, they will have no problem understanding. The easy-to-download storyboard and practice files included in this course strongly support the instruction.

Ryan ReidInstructional Designer & Developer

I really liked the real-world examples and practice activities Tim uses to teach variables and conditions in Storyline. Tim was also very personable and funny. It felt like he was sitting right next to me.

Katee EstrasaLearning & Development Specialist

We just got Articulate installed at work, and we decided to use this course to learn how to use it. This course is very straightforward and focused on how to actually apply all of the different features.

Cath ElliseLearning Designer & Developer

As someone who obsesses over designing high end solutions, I feel a sense of relief that The eLearning Designer's Academy is out there, as some of the current products on the market are so poorly executed visually, I worry that the content is equally as bad. All the best and thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our industry.
