Articulate 360

Articulate 360 is a powerful tool if you plan on teaching any topic. It can be as simple or complex as you like. You can create a Rise course which has videos, interactive Storyline content, quizzes, interactive images, buttons, and more. It's not necessarily suited for compliance training because it is hard to verify completion.

Coursera

It's absolutely ideal for programming. Today, most programming environments are available for free and enthusiasts can tinker with programming on their own. But Coursera structures that process and presents iteratively more complex assignments to the student.I found it useful for non-programming. I took a refresher Calculus course and the user was able to enter solutions symbolically which I found impressive.

Pros

  • Has many templates, a full content library, and plenty of references and tutorials.
  • It is user-friendly and functions within powerpoint so your organization can pick up the software fairly easy.
  • Adding seats and more users is easy.
  • Sharing review links and getting others to review and collaborate is a feature that Articulate added.

Cons

  • There are some functions in scoring and reporting that can be improved. I have had to use advanced scripting to accomplish some tasks that could be added to the product.
  • Their Rise product is great for using template content blocks and creating a modern look to training courses - however, it is limited in the amount of customization compared to Storyline 360.
  • The audio editor can be a little jumpy when trying to micro-edit sound.

  • I once did a course that required me to install a some software on my laptop (a virtual machine to run a database locally). There was little support to do it. I ended up leaving the course because of this.
  • Some tests are graded using peer grading. It works well on average, but sometimes it is hard to get valuable feedback.
  • The quizzes tend to stay the same from one iteration of a course to another. For many of the computer science courses one can find the answer on the internet which damages the value of the certificate.

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.

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.

Return on Investment

  • We have seen many users take our eLearning or webinars and purchase many more training pieces.
Nicholas Messiah profile photo
  • Not easy to measure, since it adds soft skills that indirectly increase the overall company ROI.
  • For staff, the investment in time adds to their efficiency in their current positions, and improves their employ-ability for future positions.
