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.

The tool is very easy to use and engaging to view, however, I am not familiar with a way to gain business analytics out of presentations viewed. For instance, LinkedIn Pointdrive enables me to send presentations to customers and be alerted of views, time spent on particular assets and other insights into how customers are viewing what I am sending to them. That sort of data is extremely beneficial.

Pros

  • Articulate Review is the single greatest addition to the Articulate set of tools in the 4.5 years I've been using the product. It makes course review a cinch, and eliminates all of the headaches that come from reviewing courses on an LMS or via a hacked together Google Drive/Dropbox solution.
  • Rise is an incredibly quick, easy way to build quick, beautiful, content driven courses that are mobile friendly and responsive. It's drag and drop, which makes it fun to use, and web-based, which allows developers to build content on the go without needing access to their primary machine.
  • Peek (the screen recorder tool) is a big improvement over Articulate Replay from a simplicity perspective. It records the screen as a discreet taskbar icon, rather than a full program, and then allows you to edit and use that content in your software package of choice. I love it.

Cons

  • I occasionally have issues with the launcher in 360, and can't get the program to open. It seems to be an intermittent bug on my computer that has to do with being enterprise-locked. The first time this happened, I reached to Articulate's world-class support, who helped me get up and running again. I've been able to fix the issue subsequently by following the instructions provided by the Articulate folks, so I'm happy with that!
  • I would like to see further integration with TinCan API (xAPI) in the platform. Right now, I believe that TinCan is only supported in Storyline, and that the statements it is capable of sending to an LRS system are limited to 6 canned verbs. While that is fine, there is no native support for sending variables directly to an LRS without doing some XML tweaking behind the scenes. I'd like to see Articulate lead the industry in xAPI use cases and support, since I hope that's the direction that the industry is headed.
  • I say this every time I have an opportunity, but I'd love to see Articulate develop a native version for the Mac. I've had some success running Storyline 360 on my Mac with Parallels and VMWare Fusion, but I'd like to free up my system resources to edit video AND develop courses, which is difficult to do when you're running a virtual machine.

  • Auto sizing of images - it would be easier if Prezi could auto re-size images that are too large instead of being forced to edit them in Photoshop or Paint.
  • Deleting frames - now when deleting frames, everything inside the frame gets deleted. It was not like this in the past. If we want to re-frame something, it's difficult to do since everything inside the frame is tied to the frame.
  • Fonts - we're restricted to prezi fonts. It'd be nice to be able to use generally accepted HTML/CSS fonts as well.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate vs Storyline - I consider these to be somewhat different in their approach. I was exposed to Storyline, before Captivate. Each have a learning curve.Adobe Muse vs Rise, but I have not used Muse.Camtasia vs Replay/Peek.I don't believe there is currently a direct competitor out there for this full suite.

I have been a PowerPoint user for many years and I truly love the versatility of the program. Unfortunately, PowerPoint has not changed or grown much more than improvement...it is the same as it has always been. Prezi has taken the slide based presentation concept, revived it and made it much more interesting.

Return on Investment

  • There has been a positive impact for our support efforts with the addition of Peek's integration with Review. Specifically, it's reduced time to provide just-in-time support for our developers by being able to quickly record, upload, and share a screen-cast with our remote team.
  • We have had some difficulty with upgrading existing projects to the new platform, but mostly due to them not being previously tested for HTML5/mobile. It's unclear whether or not this is due to underlying bugs in the new A360 software, or unidentified issues in the initial files. But having the ability to work with Articulate Support is making a world of difference.
  • The new mobile player has better positioned us to offer mobile device support, despite not offering true responsive design. It strikes a nice balance between development effort and versatility for multi-device support.

  • Our presentations became more direct, allowing the presenter to interact freely with images and maps in collaboration with the audience.
  • Lectures are more engaging since they tend to rely more on visual assets than on text blocks. The flyover and zooming transitions also contribute to making them more dynamic and interesting to the students.
  • Presenters tend to reduce the quantities of text on their presentations, focusing instead on maps, infographics, pictures and other visual data, making their presentations more visually compelling and raising more interest.
