    Articulate 360 is a great authoring tool for beginners. It has a very clean user interface and makes creating courses a breeze. You don't need to have much experience as an instructional designer to create a great and professional-looking course. I would recommend it for instructors who want to create intuitive courses available on many different platforms.

    If you are onboarding new employees or consultants and you have a complex product, solution, or your business is layered and complex, this can help distill down the layers into basics so that new team or partners can build their knowledge base up the right way. This ensures they are learning what needs to be learned, and not what they surmise or assume, which can be incorrect and cause issues down the road - this is especially sensitive in our field. Training of all kinds can be done easily with this tool.

    Pros

    Articulate 360

    • Ease of use/ability to learn how to use features
    • Clean and simple design output makes it easy for learners to navigate through courses
    • Freedom to create what your imagination can dream up
    • Community Support from e-learning heroes is great! Any issues are normally resolved with the community within a day and articulate staff still follows up.
    • 360 is always being upgraded and improved with character bundles, image/video content, and new feature roll-outs.

    Lessonly

    • Open to feedback and ideas and constantly innovating and iterating on their product to serve new needs that arise
    • Making me feel like more than just a customer: They aren't transactional and focus on building the relationship and making me feel heard.
    • Extremely easy to use product so building content takes little time, and I can leverage other subject matter experts to build content as well.

    Cons

    Articulate 360

    • More flexibility to customize the look and feel of Articulate Rise templates (think of position of corporate logo and colors in quizzes)
    • A functionality that I would love to see is A morph transition
    • The JavaScript trigger can’t be used in preview mode. This really slows down the workflow when working with JavaScript
    Paul Alders | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Lessonly

    • Media import (audio, video) are still in infancy. Reliability of uploaded content isn't 100%.
    • The Events function lacks some features that are more built out in other platforms.
    • Reporting interface has a bit of a learning curve, but overall isn't bad.

    Worried about its acquisition by Seismic and hope that they don't change the product or the terms drastically.

    Overall I can't fault Articulate 360. Sure, there are always enhancements that an individual user would like to see introduced, but generally speaking the usability is second to none.
    Articulate 360 offers something for users of all levels. It can be friendly enough not to turn off novices, but has enough about it to keep the professional coming back for more.

    It's completely simple and intuitive, anyone can pick it up. The hardest part is looking for a save button and finally figuring out you don't need one. We don't provide training for users and never have complaints. For creators, we provide best practices, but using Lessonly itself requires nothing .

    It took forever to get someone to respond--either by email or by phone--directly to a pricing and licensing question. It is unfortunate that a company that has such potential as a streamlined course building/authoring tool not only missed the boat with service but also proves itself to be all fluff and no substance.

    The support team is very friendly and eager to help you learn the ins and outs of Lessonly. They can set up training for large groups or send links in a chat for individual help. They are quick to respond and if one person doesn't have the answer, they will collaborate with others to help find the answer.

    Alternatives Considered

    Articulate 360

    Articulate 360 has the total package vs the other tools. If you just wanted to do video, you can use tools like Camtasia. Another elearning tool I have tried is called Viewlet Builder. It was a very stripped down version of a Storyline type software where you could create and produce elearning modules as well. Articulate 360 has pretty much all of the capabilities of the other kinds of elearning development tools, so you pretty much only need one suite instead of compiling a toolkit of mixed software

    I felt some of these products had more features than were necessary and needed for our team. Some of them were limited on the number of content creators that were allowed which to me forces you to use one or two people to create content where I would rather see it done by key members of each department.

    Return on Investment

    Articulate 360

    • So far we have been able to implement a host of interactive eLearnings that have received a widely positive reception from our learner base! It has some glitches but everyone is mostly happy with it and seem to learn a lot.
    • Rise is so easy to use that I can whip up a course as easily as I can whip up an outline, so usually, I just dive into course creation and share that as my "outline." This helps me get work done faster.
    • Being able to review my work with the 'Review' tool has allowed us to collaborate much more quickly, which has DEEPLY benefitted one of our big revenue-generating projects last year.

    • We've had an increase in quality overall as a company, as we are able to continually train our employees outside of our New Hire Training program.
    • We've seen stronger communication as we are able to send out material to our stylists about products, policies, procedures, etc. and they are able to provide us with feedback. After all, it is their tool for learning and we want to know the best way to provide that information to our Team Members.
