Articulate 360

Articulate 360 is well suited for training where you need to be able to create something quickly. It is also a great solution for a team that might have different skill levels. The learning curve isn't as high as some other programs that require more programming or manipulation for results. I can't say that I have yet experienced a time when this software didn't work for my needs.

Saba

We feel as the Saba LMS is great for anyone that has their own content creators or utilize 3rd parties for content. It can even function as an LRS, HRMS, LMS, as has other vast options. It is great for those that want to condense systems into one, however anyone that wants a stand-alone LMS, it can function as this, but works better with direct ties to HRIS.

Pros

  • I love the addition of Review. It allows us to send items to external customers for their review and feedback as well as allows me to comment back via one location. When you update and re-publish you can update the item they can see. I did stumble across the fact that if you have multiple people working on a project and they publish and send a link to the customer it is saved into their own 360 site. I need to explore this more to see if there is a way to make a collaborative site that two people can update to. If not, it is important to be aware that you need to send the updated links to your co-worker too or they won't see comments made on the newer items published by a different person. We ran into this because I had to go out of town and someone else had to help with some updates.
  • Storyline is something I have been using since it came out and wow, it has come a long way in a relatively short time. I have to say my favorite thing about the software though is the collaborative site to teach people on how to use it and to collaborate with others. It is unlike any other support/tutorial site I have ever used. I also like Storyline because it is robust but user-friendly. You can make very simple or very complex items based on your skill set. There is also a newly updated content library full of great resources to use in your training. I feel like the access to this has really opened up options for our training programs.
  • Another thing I really like it the ability to change your design view for PC to tablet to mobile...seamlessly. This is huge! As the world turns more to mobile learning this is a great way to see what you have done and how it will transfer between formats.

  • Organize Learning Library
  • Full Restful API
  • Connectors for common other 3rd party applications like Salesforce, HRIS, and even Lynda

Cons

  • Just released, so still a few things to iron out.
  • Price point is high for freelancers, but hopefully this will be addressed.
  • Not the ground breaking update to Storyline 2 that I expected, but this is NOT Storyline 3, so I'm happy with this.
  • Studio and Replay seem a bit unnecessary now and could perhaps take efforts away from the more useful components of the suite.

The only reason I wouldn't rate this a 10 is because we always want to evaluate the technology we use to drive our business. While Saba would be the "leader in the clubhouse", we would still perform our due diligence when it's time to renew.

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 used a lot of LMSs in the past and I think that Saba does a lot of good things that the others could not do effectively. Automated the assignment of courses is difficult but this has a lot to do with business rules and organizational structure. I think the Saba's UI is more modern in its design and is a lot more user-friendly to administer than the other products listed.

Return on Investment

  • Quicker turnaround on course reviews. I don't have to fight with multiple documents and QA forms.
  • Cheaper overall costs - media content is available and needn't be produced externally or using other software
  • Better overall customer satisfaction. It feels like a better offering to customers when I can show both them the content, and then QA it, immediately.

  • Saba has helped us automate our performance review process - everything used to be submitted to excel documents before we implemented saba.
  • Saba has helped us assign and track learning, before implementation we did not even have an LMS
  • Saba has served as the foundation for our first recognition program through the use of impressions
