Advanced Content Authoring and Reporting - Publishing a Storyline module with xAPI

Storyline is an advanced content authoring tool that should only be used by technically inclined instructors or instructors who have local learning technology support staff. Additionally, campus-wide software licences for Storyline are not available. Please take this into account when deciding to use Storyline for the creation of course and assignment materials, and consider contacting the DoIT Help Desk to request a consultation regarding using Storyline with Grassblade
