Articulate Global, Inc.
We have utilized Articulate Rise for our primary curriculum design platform for multiple years. Although it can look pricey compared with other free options, they do a great job of supporting nonprofit use and more cost-effective. By doing so, they continue to be the best in the industry when it comes to value relative to cost with a nice suite of content creation tools that can easily create an out-of-the-box online curriculum while still being easy to navigate for traditional teachers who may be extremely knowledgeable about curriculum development but not tech-savvy. The product could benefit from more content formats and activity types (doesn't seem to have been updated in years) and more authority and control over color/visual palettes and style.

It is great for perfecting sales skills and ramping up new talent via a library of videos. It is also great for creating sales competitions. This gets everyone engaged on the specific exercise that the firm is looking to educate its employees on

  • LearnCore has lost videos that I have had my reps record. This is absolutely not acceptable.
  • A couple months ago, you could not assign one employee to a specific exercise. You had a create a group.
  • The platform is not as intuitive as one would think. Setting up an exercise is somewhat annoying.

Alternatives Considered
Articulate Global, Inc.
We chose Articulate Rise because it was the best balance of offering multiple design tools and embeddable content without being obnoxiously priced. Because the course design also ensures SCORM-compliance, whatever we create can easily be embedded in learning management systems later on. We looked at some more robust platforms but the type of tools they offered required a level of coding and technical expertise that would have left those same tools unused by staff. Meanwhile, many free services have some features but make it hard to create a truly cohesive, unified course experience (as opposed to disjointed activities and readings that essentially just get "collated" online). In this case, you really can build a great, linear, holistic course without spending an arm and a leg.
