Articulate 360

In the case of software launches for applications that have typical workflows, Articulate 360 is great to create on demand e-learning. You can include live demos, videos, self-paced presentations, knowledge checks, etc... You can also record scoring and return that information to your LMS. this is great where there might be a level of compliance checking in your organization. When mastered, it is also possible to create simulations within the modules as well. The ability to branch and lead the end user in different paths is a great strength as well.Articulate 360 is less suited for more passive learning material. If the need is for a demo only, other tools to record screen capture and creating videos might be more appropriate. However if it needs to be used within your LMS system, you could still use Articulate to output the module. For simple cases, though, Articulate might be overkill for what you need.

Synergy Education Platform

It is well suited for all K-12 education systems that are looking for effective ways to improve and streamline their information. It would not be as useful for a college or a university system as it does not have the complexity needed in order to carry out all of the specific functions that a university system would need.

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.

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.

Synergy Education Platform seemed to be just as affordable as the software options that offer similar solutions but individually. Synergy Education Platform helps bring all of that data that is needed together in the same space for one lower and flat rate which has been incredibly useful for our organization. I would continue to use this product over the products of competitors
