Articulate 360

If you are looking for a suite of tools to support every type of eLearning development that you could imagine, look no further. Articulate 360 supports PowerPoint native course creation in Studio 360, Rapid eLearning Development with robust configuration and interactivity options in Storyline 360, a responsive drag-and-drop creation tool in Rise, and a time-saving godsend of a review tool in Articulate Review. The mere fact that Articulate throws a huge content library on top of that is incredible icing on the cake.

Pros

  • Articulate's community is just a click and email away...support when you need it. The amount of free templates, storyboards, ideas, and graphics is absolutely amazing. We all share information, issues, and resolutions together, making for a true "community" of e-Learning professionals.
  • Articulate's Storyline 360 tool enables you to import a PowerPoint and add engagement through built-in interactions, or you can start from scratch and build the same look and feel. - Easy enough for beginners, robust enough for programmers.
  • Articulate Review enables our customers to provide screen by screen feedback...long gone are the days of using spreadsheets to track revisions.
  • Responsive design is integrated and works beautifully!

  • An in-depth tutorial, training, and reviews.
  • An influx of information and specialists/experts available to help.
  • Online courses for a multitude of topics—we're talking hundreds of videos.
  • Able to take this on the go. Don't have to be in a desk at work to use lynda.com.

Cons

  • We are in education and the price point will continue to be an issue for us. ISDs in other parts of campus are negotiating a contract with Adobe for Captivate licenses for under $200. While I believe that Articulate is a good buy, it is difficult to justify the cost to administration. I also am frustrated with the way pre-purchased upgrades were handled when switching to this new subscription based service. I think that the new pay structure will make this package pf products unattainable for many contractors, non-profits, small businesses, and education institutions.
  • I think some of these apps are redundant... do we really need Peek, and Studio, and Replay? I would like things to be a little more consolidated.

  • When they were acquired by LinkedIn, the next invoice barely noted the invoice was for Lynda.com. I at first thought it was a phishing attempt using LinkedIn as a front.
  • The invoice should be from the lynda.com domain and NOT from LinkedIn.
  • Account administrators should be able to change passwords, and see passwords, for the license entities they manage. Also, all email notices to users should be duplicated to account administrators.

Lynda.com is very simple to use, from finding videos to watching to going back and finding the chapter you want to re-watch. Love it all!

Alternatives Considered

I was an Adobe Captivate user before I switched to Articulate. I found the learning curve for Storyline was so low you could literally create e-learning after playing with it for a few hours. I did not find that with Captivate. Storyline adapts to the developer's level of skill: it has all the built-in features you might need when yo are starting off and then lets you get more complex as you gain experience.

We have both lynda.com and Plural sight at my job. I like lynda.com when I am searching for a specific tool as it contains videos that hone in on teaching the attributes of a specific tool. Pluralsight's videos generally are longer and are more project based. But both sites are excellent resources. I can't really say which is better than the other.

Return on Investment

  • This is still very new software so it's still early to say but I can see great value in Review as a workflow tool.
  • Being able to [create] quick iPad projects with Prezo should also be nice for some of those on the road.

  • Lynda has helped increase professional certifications within the department. Certifications have made the professionals who desire to move up or out of the company more competitive.
  • Lynda has provided professionals with an opportunity to self-develop which has enhanced the quality of our professionals.
