Articulate 360

After two years of using the product, I believe that Articulate 360 is a must for any serious training organization. Especially those working within a team of people.

I am not sure how this will be applicable to business other than the fact that everyone can educate themselves on a particular topic. Coursera's coverage is great, they have training materials on literally every subject you can imagine. The only one scenario that I think an organization can benefit from this is instead of sending their employees to offline training session which ends up becoming expensive, now everyone can take quality online training sessions.

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.

  • Coursera's courses are extremely good. They are well designed and being a full time employee I really appreciate the fact of how well they are designed.
  • They have made sure that everybody gets enough time to complete it.
  • There is an active community which is very helpful. No matter how good a teaching material is, you might always need extra help. This community can answer your question. And also this becomes extremely relevant if you are taking programming courses
  • There are assignments to test your skills. This is a great way to evaluate yourself. At this point if you feel like you haven't understood something, you can always go back and refer the videos. Most of these assignments can be applied to real world problems as well which is great

Cons

  • I think a lower yearly price would be a big help for independent freelancers.
  • Having a bank of Rise templates available.
  • More graphical assets in the content library would be useful.

  • When I started Coursera was completely free. Being a student it was very helpful for me. I think this free service should be brought back at-least for students.

Alternatives Considered

I think that Articulate made a huge leap jump forward releasing the 360 package. It is much better as a suite, and cheaper compared to Adobe eLearning or CC package. From my perspective, it is much better for small (up to 10) groups of developers and initial phases of e-learning implementation. From my experience when it goes to advanced programming in courses shared actions in Adobe Captivate wins.

Obviously, Coursera lacks some of the formal credentials that a college or university degree offers. It also has limitations when it comes to a broad scope curated academic course that a university degree offers. However, it does afford users who couldn't afford a full-on degree, either with regards to cost or time, the opportunity to access high quality learning materials that can significantly improve their ability to do work. I believe that a self-taught employee, especially in this era of insanely fast technological development, can be of more value to a company than an army of employees that only believe in the traditional model of studying for 4 years and spending the rest of their lives limited to the knowledge and skills obtained during their studies.
