As stated in their own brochure, it is "best suited to highly regulated markets such as Pharmaceuticals, Food Manufacturing, Energy and Utilities and Government and Not-For-Profit." I believe that this software could be used in several other markets and be just as productive. It is well-suited for companies that want to take existing templates and customize them to meet their own needs.

Articulate Storyline

I think Storyline is great for self-reviews. It is fairly easy to set up a "Drag and Drop" slide with a few questions to drag over to the right answer. You can use pictures and graphics to make it more appealing and interactive. It is also very useful for training processes. For example, if you wanted to show someone how to use a specific program, you can use screenshots and screen video captures to help show the process. I think it would be harder to use Storyline for a class lecture or just for videos. For example, if you wanted to record a physical classroom, or record a screen capture in which you are just using screen captures.

Pros

  • It was very easy to set up.
  • It was a very good value considering the cost.
  • The ability to share information, files, etc. with co-workers is a huge plus.

  • Storyline integrates with the Canvas LMS fairly seamlessly. There have been a few glitches, but for the most part, the interactions we have created will play directly in the Canvas LMS.
  • Storyline is great for creating short drag and drop interactions for self-reviews or even graded assignments. Its many options for quizzes such as "answer reveal" or using tabs help the student get a different perspective on the content rather than just an "A, B, or C" answer.
  • Storyline is great for tutorials or training sessions. There are many options to help guide the learner (or employee) through a process. it is not just linear, but you can branch the slides based on the answers. A great way to engage the learner or employee.

Cons

  • It could use better, more thorough documentation.
  • The customer service aspect could also use some additional work.
  • I would like to see more gamification from AITalent.

  • As stated earlier, Storyline does work well with Canvas, however, there have been glitches experienced. Specifically, it is hard to narrow down the problems, but I think Canvas and Articulate need to do better at making sure that they are comparable.
  • Storyline is not easy to learn, especially when you want to do more complex interactions. They do have a nice community set up to help with common problems and questions. However, it can be a longer learning curve when first starting out on Storyline.
  • If you are working on a more complex interaction it can be a very tedious process. Working with many different slides and layers requires a lot of focus on the task. Definitely not a program you can multitask with.

We are moving away from the standalone eCourse model, so depending upon when that shift happens, we might choose not to renew since we won't be supporting eCourses built in Articulate Storyline anymore. As long as we are still selling and supporting those eCourses, we will continue to renew the licenses we have.

The basics are easy to learn but you won't get really robust activities from using just the basics. However, if you can invest the time in learning how to use all of Storyline's features, you'll have tremendous learning development power at your fingertips. I do have to say, though, that there is a beautiful logic to how everything in Storyline works. Once you learn a few of the advanced features, you can learn them all because there's a similar underlying logic. The interface is also very appealing and friendly.

They are support-superstars and the software they use for support is excellent too (I don't know what it is). The model they use for support should be followed by all companies. It is a conversation/discussion forum model that shows everyone's questions in a knowledge base capacity so you can get the help you need in a speedy way.

I love the fact that both a demonstration AND text version of the tutorials are available. Our firewall was blocking the demos until I requested my company allow them! Having the text version available still enabled me to learn from the tutorials. They are very well done and informative, and there is a tutorial for just about anything you need to learn to do with Storyline. I have always been more than satisfied with the support and training available to us for all Articulate products and I love the community!

Alternatives Considered

We chose AITalent LMS over Absorb's product due to cost constraints. The same could be said of Litmos and Saba. Whereas they might be larger and more established, AITalent LMS did what we needed for a price which we could afford. We would have preferred to have the support that the others offered.

As mentioned earlier, I used to use Adobe Captivate prior to Storyline. It has been at least 3 1/2 years since I've used Captivate, so it may have gotten better since then. But, from my experience, Articulate is much more intuitive and has a lot more features than Captivate. Overall, it is easier to use and is easier to complete a project in Storyline as opposed to Captivate.

It is easy to train new users and manage content. Being able to import older projects and PPT files makes it very easy to use for a lot of "moonlighters" in our department.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us to quickly and easily develop an entire curriculum for our employees.
  • To fully take advantage of the value of this tool, we had to dedicate several specialists to dig into the features to learn how to best use them.
  • The ease of which we can edit existing units allows us to use that time in other aspects of our work.

  • Quick way to impart knowledge, best practise and updates to a wider audience.
  • Able to test learners understanding of the information given by interaction tests of learning that capture attention
  • Cost savings. This has been a huge positve for us as a business due to the number of learners we have. Being able to reach them remotely has revolutionized the way we engage with learners.
  • eLearning can never fully replace the impact of face to face training. This is sometimes a message lost with management as they tend to see the cost savings the good eLearning brings rather than what learners may be missing out on.
