Articulate 360

Articulate 360 is a must-have tool for any instructional designer that is self-employed. The flexibility to create with Storyline or Rise is a major advantage, especially when working with a client/department that wants something beautiful and interactive within a week. Articulate 360 allows the ID to give options without sacrificing quality.

SumTotal Learn

It works well for just uploading SCORM compliant courses. We don't use it for managing ILT courses as it was complicated when we last tried it. We also do not sell courses, but I don't think that it's capable of doing that

Cons

  • The Support Community is great; however, it can be hard to find an answer to your support needs.
  • Out of my price range as an individual ($999 annually)
  • No browser-based version - yet!

  • JasperSoft Reporting - it is difficult to use and manage.
  • Exams could be more robust. Offering alternate types of questions.
  • Too many clicks on the administrator side. Adding new activities is not intuitive, you need to click through each section to determine what needs to be entered where. Would be better if it was guided for new activities, just prompting for 'required' fields.

We have made an investment in SumTotal and changing our LMS at this point would be costly.

I do not find SumTotal to be intuitive. I feel we need to adjust our needs to meet the functionality available in the tool.

Alternatives Considered

Storyline 360 gives you similar output as Storyline 2, with responsive players and some new features, but does not produce a fully responsive course. It optimizes the page size based on the device screen like before. If a slide has a lot of content, it will be very difficult to read when viewed on smaller screens like mobile phones.

SuccessFactors is more user friendly, however their service is less than stellar. SumTotal was chosen because of price and customer service.

Return on Investment

  • Content library will certainly help towards reducing cost and time in development particularly in relation to graphics.
  • Provides more of an all in one system. Working within a family of programmes that understand each other tends to make things run smoother take the Adobe suite for example.
  • Articulate Review, seems to be an easy way to publish and send courses for review. No need of any server or LMS to send the courses for stakeholders’ to review.

  • We don't measure ROI with Maestro, but mostly provide it as a service/benefit to our network.
  • Based on owner feedback, we know that it helps them manage their time so that the new employee can take their required courses and then put that new knowledge to work. This allows for owners/managers to spend their time on other things and focus on the most critical issues with their new employees.
