Articulate 360

If you are looking for a suite of tools to support every type of eLearning development that you could imagine, look no further. Articulate 360 supports PowerPoint native course creation in Studio 360, Rapid eLearning Development with robust configuration and interactivity options in Storyline 360, a responsive drag-and-drop creation tool in Rise, and a time-saving godsend of a review tool in Articulate Review. The mere fact that Articulate throws a huge content library on top of that is incredible icing on the cake.

Bridge

Bridge is suited for scenarios where you need ppl to complete steps in order or test that they received the correct amount of knowledge after watching a video. I do think Bridge is less appropriate for companies that use it in external training scenarios as there is some key functionality missing. We gotten very good at brainstorming and finding solutions/ways to get Bridge to work the way that we need it to

Pros

  • Online collaboration with plenty of storage. You are able to share your projects easily and collaborate with others, even if they do not have a license for Articulate 360.
  • Responsive design for mobile. The Rise product is amazing. Accessed through a browser, you can build eLearning on any computer and it looks great on every screen.
  • Regular updates. Articulate 360 has been great about making regular improvements to the platform. They are really fulfilling the promise they made when they moved to a subscription model.
  • A complete package. Every tool in 360 makes sense and seamlessly works with each other.
  • A plethora of content. With the subscription you get access to Articulate's library of templates, people, images, video and icons. This library continues to grow and is high quality.

  • Bridge is designed for the user so it is intuitive and easy to use.
  • Bridge includes an authoring tool so building custom content is fast and easy.
  • Bridge does a good job of providing user information for managers. Managers can quickly and easily see how many courses their reports are enrolled in and if anyone is overdue on required courses.
  • Bridge is also built with learning science in mind. There are multiple options for assessments, including an option for verified tasks to be completed to demonstrate proficiency.

Cons

  • Subscription renewal. Although Articulate does a good job at attempting to make renewal and online subscription management painless, there are still some bottlenecks in the process. Working with their sales team and your billing can take some time. Just a minor thing that could possibly be approached differently.

  • Bridge could improve their categorization feature for trainings; folders would be great!
  • I'd like to see more ways to add content in the Bridge native environment in the future. Being able to create tables, infographics, and other training materials right in the system would be a great time saver.

Pretty likely because Bridge is a good product that will probably meet our needs. However now that I am more familiar with what the LMS can/can't do I will probably be a better shopper to see if there is another LMS that can fill the gaps that this one has

Alternatives Considered

I believe that Articulate 360 provides a more robust development platform than the competition. By having access to all of the tools and content, there really isn't much you cannot do with it.

Bridge is much more modern and intuitive. It is easy to use as an author and even easier as a user. The system looks clean and concise

Return on Investment

  • We are now able to deliver true rapid e-Learning to our customers: faster and cheaper than ever before.

  • Certainly, Bridge was not an inexpensive option when we were reviewing platforms. To date, we have not seen a positive ROI but believe that will happen in the near future as we expand an offering of an additional program.
  • Reviews from our users indicate that they appreciate the professional and easy to use features Bridge provides, along with the video based design of the program.
  • The program we developed with the Bridge platform supports our position as educators in our industry.
