Who Should Attend

Although this program is most appropriate for beginners, you should have a foundational understanding of e-learning design and development practices. No prior experience with Articulate products is necessary. However, you must download a copy of Articulate Storyline on your computer. The trial version is acceptable.

ATD Education programs are designed primarily for learning professionals—trainers, instructional designers, and organizational development practitioners—but also greatly benefit anyone within an organization who is responsible for developing others, from managers to human resources specialists.

What Our Participants Are Saying
Danielle Buscher

"I'd never opened Articulate Storyline prior to attending this program. I left the course feeling confident and ready to start creating e-learning courses that utilize a majority of the program functionality."

Taffy Davis

"Being able to move from "search and find" in my own self-learning to seeing the powerful tools the program offers under skilled instructors was well worth the cost of the program.  I feel that I can create great learning with the ability to add interactivity to every slide." 

Lynne Hicks

"The program built logically from one tool to the next. The course really gave me a wonderful boost to a level of understanding and skills that working on my own would never have accomplished."

Participants who miss more than one live session will not be eligible to receive the certificate. For programs with four or fewer sessions, attendance at all live sessions is required to receive a certificate. If you meet the eligibility requirements, a certificate will be issued to you through the ATD Learning Portal at the end of the program.
