Whether you're new to Storyline or you've been using it for years, the Storyline Project Lab will help you develop like a pro and create stand-out projects.
Many people try to figure out Storyline on their own or piece things together from free tutorials online. This works for some people, but it can lead to wasted time, lack of confidence, and missed opportunities.
The Storyline Project Lab helps you quickly upskill so that you can serve as a top contributor on any Storyline development project. It also helps you develop portfolio-worthy projects of your own so that you can land high-paying instructional design jobs or freelance opportunities.
Articulate Storyline is the most popular and in-demand technical skill in the instructional design space. When you're highly skilled and confident with Storyline (and have strong work samples to back you up), it opens doors to new opportunities and higher salaries.
Nobody likes to learn alone...and you don't have to! Everyone who joins the Storyline Project Lab gets access to a private Slack channel that's devoted to learning Storyline, getting feedback on your projects, and fostering connections.
You can engage with the community by asking questions, helping your peers, and even joining teams to create projects together.
Project teams meet together live once per week to dive into the projects and challenges. Joining or leading a team is a great way to network with the community and enhance your learning.
Stuck on a tough challenge? Your team can help. Is a teammate struggling? You can guide them through it and solidify your learning. The good will and relationships fostered on these teams will stick with you for many years to come.
The program also helps pair you with a lab partner who has similar interests and goals. You and your partner can help each other stay motivated by checking in with one another on Slack, solving challenges together on Zoom, or even developing custom interactions together as a duo.
It's hard to learn software from passively watching tutorials, and it can be difficult to find motivation to create projects of your own. To help you get the practice that you need to learn Storyline to a professional level, the project lab includes 70+ development challenges that span every project.
These embedded practice opportunities ensure that you're not just soaking up the information, but that you're actually applying what you learn and solidifying your skills for when you need them most.
When you learn and apply the techniques taught in the Storyline Project Lab, you'll be able to develop much more quickly. These are the techniques that I've used to earn 3- and 4-figure hourly rates on fixed-price development projects as a freelancer. The project lab covers these techniques, as well as the supporting tools that you can use to further reduce your development time.
The Storyline Project Lab is not a loose collection of one-off "how-to" videos. It's a carefully designed, practice-oriented learning experience that was built with and for the instructional design community.
Everything from the projects selected to the techniques suggested are designed to help you outshine the competition and impress your entire office with your Storyline skills (and the portfolio projects to back them up).
To help make sure that the content was as effective as possible, we pre-sold the program to a group of fifty instructional designers and requested detailed feedback lesson by lesson. The result? A carefully crafted Storyline course that's unlike anything else on the market.
Many instructional designers who have been using Storyline for years are limited by pre-built templates. In this program, you'll learn how to start from a blank slide to develop truly custom eLearning slides and interactions.
The secret ingredients for most custom interactions are variables, conditions, triggers, and states. However, many instructional designers steer clear of variables and conditions because they seem overwhelming and intimidating.
In the Storyline Project Lab, you'll get an easy, intuitive introduction to variables and conditions. After that, we slowly get more advanced as you get more practice and build your confidence and skills.
By the end of the project lab, you should feel comfortable using variables and conditions in ways that you previously thought impossible. This leads to impressive projects that amateur developers are unable to create.
Once you've mastered the skills in the Storyline Project Lab, the only thing that will hold you back in Storyline is your own creativity. When you know what's possible with all of Storyline's features and functions, you can use the tool to create completely new types of experiences that are guaranteed to impress.
The Storyline Project Lab assumes that you have never used the tool before, and it quickly gets you up to speed with intermediate and advanced concepts. Even without any background knowledge, you'll learn how to use the tool at a professional level and create fully-functional portfolio projects.
Even though the Storyline Project Lab assumes that you do not have background knowledge, it is a favorite among experienced designers and developers.
Early concepts in the program will be familiar to you, but it will help you learn Storyline to a deeper level so that you can develop a wider, more creative range of learning experiences in a shorter amount of time.
The portfolio guidance will also help you highlight your skills more effectively to prospective clients and employers.
The Storyline Project Lab does not shy away from complexity. It covers advanced development techniques that involve variables and conditions, but the content and challenges are scaffolded so that the concepts get easier with each additional project. The program is designed to help you build your confidence along the way, and, before you know it, you'll have some of the best Storyline skills in the market.
The Storyline Project Lab is for anyone who would like to learn Storyline to a professional level and create impressive portfolio projects in the process. It's a particularly good fit for:
You will learn how to do all of the following and more as you develop eight real-world projects with the help of the self-paced content in the lab:
You'll get hands-on practice with all of this and more. By the end of the program, you'll feel confident in your skills and you'll be ready to take on professional eLearning development work (with strong portfolio projects to back you up).
Everyone works on different schedules, and we all have a different amount of time available for professional development. On top of that, technology can change quickly. That's why you get lifetime access to the program. Learn on your own time and rest easy knowing that the Storyline Project Lab will always be up-to-date.
Are you interested in joining the Instructional Design Portfolio Bootcamp, my premium, limited-seat offering that includes unlimited personalized feedback and multiple 1-on-1s? If so, then this program is a great way to get started.
Everyone who joins the Storyline Project Lab gets first-choice enrollment and a $1,000 discount on the bootcamp.
I started my freelance business as a master’s student in 2017, and I've used Articulate Storyline on every one of my client projects since then. I started creating free Storyline tutorials and hosting free webinars soon after.
Now, after spending thousands of hours in Storyline and closing six figures in sales per year in Storyline development work, I'm scaling my help and teaching the instructional design community how to use Storyline like a pro (and create great portfolio projects in the process).
Once you enroll in the Storyline Project Lab, you have lifetime access. This includes all future updates. Your access does not expire :)
This course is backed by the Devlin Peck Promise. If you do not feel comfortable developing professional-level Storyline projects by the end of this program, then I will grant you a full refund.
You do not need any background knowledge to enroll in Storyline Project Lab. The program will help you learn the ins and outs of the tool whether you're just getting started or you've been using it for years. We start with the simplest building blocks and work our way up to advanced variables and conditions.
The Storyline Project Lab is self-paced with community support. This means that the video content and supporting resources are all available on-demand, but you are invited to join a project team and partner with a lab partner for live support, troubleshooting, and collaboration. There is not an official live component with me, but I will engage with the community and support you as I am able to.
The Storyline Project Lab will help you create fully functional projects that you can showcase in your portfolio. These projects will be unique for each person, and they will show off your proficiency in Articulate Storyline.
You will need a computer that can run Storyline and an Articulate 360 free trial. You do not need to buy any special software to complete the program.
Since everyone's time commitments and starting points vary, it depends on how much time you can commit to the program. There is about 20 hours of content, but you can expect to spend 60+ hours completing the challenges, engaging with the community, and developing portfolio projects.
All 8 projects are complete and ready for you to develop. That being said, your access also includes lifetime updates. The next big update in the works is a detailed quick-reference guide that includes timestamps and key takeaways from all 225+ videos in the program.
The full price for the program is $999, but it is on sale for $749 until December 1st, 2021. Once this sale ends, the program will never be sold at this price again.
You can send any additional questions my way by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to respond as soon as possible.
Yes! This program will help you feel confident and comfortable using variables and conditions on real-world projects. We cover all variable types and even dive into some advanced use cases, but it is scaffolded well so it should feel easy when we get there. If you're looking to move closer to mastery with variables and conditions in Storyline, then this program will help you get there.
