Articulate 360

I can't imagine being able to do my job and do it well without Articulate 360. I am able to create simple linear training courses and complex branching courses with ease. Some of the greatest training courses involve a "choose your own adventure" feel with many branches and the outcome is based upon the points earned through the course. The better decisions, the better the outcome. Importing from PowerPoint is easy. The content library that comes with 360 is very helpful. Images are crystal clear, high-resolution, and able to be used with any use. No need for me to have subscriptions to other content services anymore. I love how easy it is now to create a video background with the content library included in 360.

HealthStream

I would ask the project manager/leader if they intended on developing their own content, or if they were content with HealthStream's various content libraries. The decision to use HealthStream as a development tool, internally, cannot be taken lightly. There is a lot of work and required expertise involved in designing and maintaining original course materials. I would also ask if the project manager/leader had considered the amount of time required to manage a full-service HealthStream environment.

Pros

Articulate 360

  • Articulate 360 has lots of options: Rise is for simple, HTML-based course content delivery. Storyline is an animation/interactive eLearning designer that is robust yet easy to learn.
  • It totally simplifies the review process. When I want to have my boss look at a course I made, I create the Articulate Review link and he can make comments at any point in the course for suggestions/corrections, and the program takes a picture of where he is looking so I know exactly what he is talking about. I can also comment back.
  • The content library is high quality and professional. You can search images of people, backgrounds for Storyline projects, or entire project templates that you just plug your content into. It allows you to create content really fast and good looking.

HealthStream

  • Designing elearning tutorials and assessments is very intuitive in HealthStream. This benefits the designer, but also the end user or employee who will ultimately take the test since the layout is also very user friendly.
  • Tracking statistics for employees; it is very easy to pull reports in HealthStream that detail scores for students on assessments, length of time it took to complete training, questions that were often answered incorrectly, etc.
  • Searching different user and employee groups for tracking is very intuitive, which saves quite a deal of time in the long run when needing to access these employee populations.

Cons

Articulate 360

  • There could be more intuitive buttons in many places. Without a "getting started" training, it might be tough to just try and figure out how to do things in the software.
  • The software has been known to be a little buggy (all versions). It is known that you should save your work often in case it crashes.
  • I wish the the vendor would build in more integrated instruction and tips withing the interface, so you can be reminded or clued in to what you are looking for if you are not an expert yet.

HealthStream

  • Class Building - very tediouos to build hundreds of classes, users do not get notified when added to a class
  • Reporting - this something they are working on. Reports are very tedious to run with all the parameters.
  • Administrators - not intuitive to be in the system. Although over time it does all make more sense.

The organization I work with has a different LMS system called Vivid. It is very limited in its capability. We can only select the training modules they have on file. We cannot upload anything we create ourselves. I think that was HealthStream's strength. If I wanted to use what I created, their IT team worked with us to make sure it was implemented/worked properly.

Usability

Articulate 360

Articulate 360 8.0
Based on 2 answers
Once you get over the learning curve, the platform is pretty easy to use, but the learning curve itself is rather steep. Even once you are familiar with the feature set, it is easy to overlook a small setting, which can cause client-facing errors. Correcting these errors is kind of a tedious process due to having to load up the application, make your change, and re-publish the course.

Their user communities are amazing. Employees answer questions very quickly and other users often answer them as well. For additional support, you can reach out to their IT support team. Support tickets are generally resolved within a day as well.

Alternatives Considered

Articulate 360

I haven't used development software other than storyline since it came out. One, because I haven't had to. This software is much more user-friendly and rapid development than previous software I have used. It also is capable of creating pretty complex items. I recommended out team get Articulate 360 because of its new additions such as Review.

The interface for HealthStream is 1000x better than My Learning. I still struggle to find my assignments and upcoming in person training on My Learning. It is not intuitive and doesn't have a dashboard when you sign on to see everything at once. HealthStream lets me easily see my assignments, their due dates, and any upcoming dates

Return on Investment

Articulate 360

  • I spend less time developing courses, and more time engaging learners with Articulate 360. Not only has our development timeline shortened because of Articulate Review and Rise, but we are also putting out better, more engaging content.
  • The subscription model of Articulate 360 paid for itself almost immediately by providing access to some awesome stock content in the Content Library. We used to spend hundreds of dollars buying content that is now included in our membership to a tool we were already paying for.
  • The greatest return on our investment has come in the form of time. Stakeholders love Articulate Review. It's easy to check the progress of the course creation, see what issues have been addressed by the development team, and provide feedback-- cutting back on everyone's least favorite thing: MEETINGS.

HealthStream

  • It has increased our ratings with JCHAO and not being caught off guard because someone forgot to take a certain class.
  • It has worked well when we are sending new software and want people to learn how to use it they are able to do it at there own time.
  • It has worked well for me because we don't have to spend money sending trainers to different facilities, it has really cut our cost down.
