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.

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 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.

  • Meeting healthcare regulatory education needs - comes with a regulatory library focused on those needs (The Joint Commission and OSHA)
  • Elective Course Options - dozens of course libaries available for purchase to meeting contining education needs of nurses and clinical employees
  • Class Registraion - Does a really nice job of handling thousands of class registrations for massive education roll outs
  • Course Building - with additional resources you can purchase rights to author your own courses.

Cons

  • Storyline is a bit heavy for some computers to handle—both the design side and even the viewer side. Outputs can occasionally be glitchy.
  • In Rise I would like to see more customizability, like choosing different fonts and locations of images and things like that. It's very cookie-cutter, which is actually great for newbies because it is difficult to make it look bad.
  • It would be cool if Rise had a "page logic" option so you can jump to different pages based on button logic. Pretty pie-in-the-sky.
  • The quiz functionality in Rise leaves a lot to be desired, but the quiz function in Storyline is SCORM compliant.

  • Very difficult to run any type of report using Healthstream. It would be more beneficial if you could run a report indicating who finished set assignments
  • Very difficult to search for classes. If you do not put in exact titles for particular assignment you will not find it.
  • Cannot print out any listing of upcoming classes on a certain topic or email a list if requested, the product really falls short
  • If an employee is not in Healthstream and you must complete their testing and you must use a "place holder" the product is not very good. If the tester does not go back into the Healthstream record once the individual is registered and enter a learning event then you do not have an accurate transcript.
  • Not really user friendly for all managers, if an older manager is not computer literate. then training can be painful and you will find the product is not used.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Articulate 360 is much more user-friendly than Captivate. I would recommend Articulate over Captivate any day.

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

  • By using the tools in Articulate 360, we have saved thousands of dollars on external development fees for eLearning.
  • The content library has allowed us to cancel other subscription to stock content, which saves us hundreds each year.
  • We have a significant savings in time necessary to develop eLearning with the rapid authoring tools and collaboration features.

  • I really do not see very good ROI, the product was not used efficiently and it was too difficult to use efficiently.
