Articulate Storyline

The user really just needs to know in advance what they hope to accomplish with the eLearning software. Articulate, though, can do pretty much everything. I used to use Adobe Captivate, but it did not have the features that Storyline currently has, nor was it as easy to use as Storyline.I would really push the user to try the free trial and get some hands on experience before making any decisions. I want them to understand for themselves how the software works and what it can do for them.

BizLibrary

In my opinion, BizLibrary is well-suited for any organization where learning & development is wanted/needed, but there is a lack of resources to deliver it all internally. Regardless of the size of the company, I can see a fit. Resources have always been a challenge... whether I was in a Fortune-ranked organization or a nonprofit or a start-up... so I feel they have a product offering which can fit nearly anyone out there.

Pros

  • Articulate Storyline 2 is as interactive as you need it to be for your learners.
  • Being able to devise eLearning that tests understanding in a more refreshing way, other than a standard quiz, is welcomed by our learners.
  • The support network available for Articulate is amazing. There is so much support out there nothing is impossible.
  • Variety is a big thing with Storyline 2. No module looks the same, unless you want it to.

  • GREAT implementation support! Too many SaaS vendors out there today rely on AI or they respond with an email and an embedded link to FAQs to address implementation and other customer support issues. Not so with BizLibrary. They assign a Technical Product Trainer to lead the implementation process, and then a Client Success Consultant to guide and assist with the roll-out for your organization, tips on how to maximize/leverage use of the platform, and target specific training content for specific groups.
  • Again, a lot of SaaS vendors out there provide no telephonic support at all. BizLibrary, conversely, does an excellent job at being available both via email and phone; if you do have to leave a message, we have yet to see more than 24hrs pass before seeing a response.
  • BizLibrary does, in my opinion, a great job of listening to what the company's pain points are, and then walking thru how their platform can help... but also being candid about how other needs may be better-addressed in a classroom setting.
  • There is a vast amount of content available thru BizLibrary that "easily consumable"... meaning the courses are delivered in a video or other web-based format, with a host of post-test and other follow-up tools to ensure learning uptake by course participants by the manager or by HR.

Cons

  • I'd like to see a more centralized storage solution for states and layers-- logic that can be ready by all states in certain situations. Right now, all of this information is held on the slide level.
  • The timeline can be a bit finicky at times, although this seems to be improved with each update.
  • Zoom regions are only available on the base layer of a slide, and must be ended prior to the slide's conclusion or learners are stuck with a zoomed view for the rest of the course.

  • There is some depth lacking around very-specific technical and analytics competencies. Though I understand that not every company has the same "big data" needs as we do in our industry, the basic tools or skill set is one which is easily transferable and a value add to other roles/industries.
  • It would be great to see an LMS built into the BizLibrary platform !
  • A suggestion made recently by one of our VPs (which I agree with) was that it would be nice if there was a section of more-advanced content in areas around leadership development, conflict management, operating across boundaries... the kind of critical thinking skills people need to advance their careers from an individual contributor level into management.

It goes without saying that Artculate's products are the easiest to use and offer a great deal of functions with flexibility. Once an eLearning author uses the product it becomes tempting to not use other methods, but one would be wise not to limit him or herself to a single learning authoring platform. On the other hand, if given a single choice of a tool for rapid eLearning development, Articulate's Storyline would be a top choice.

Support

The online community and the folks at Articulate are both incredibly helpful. Many possible questions do not even need to be asked, as the answers can already be found in the "E-Learning Heroes" community that supports the products and their users. This includes lots of examples, free content, and "show me how X is done" tutorials.

Online Training

Articulate Storyline5.1
Based on 3 answers
I love the fact that both a demonstration AND text version of the tutorials are available. Our firewall was blocking the demos until I requested my company allow them! Having the text version available still enabled me to learn from the tutorials. They are very well done and informative, and there is a tutorial for just about anything you need to learn to do with Storyline. I have always been more than satisfied with the support and training available to us for all Articulate products and I love the community!

Implementation

Articulate Storyline10.0
Based on 9 answers
Implementing Articulate Storyline was a straight-forward and painless as humanly possible. There were no headaches found with other authoring tools not behaving well in existing systems, it really is excellently designed software. Everything was thought out so very well.

Alternatives Considered

While many of the authoring tools offer comparable features and functionality, Articulate has provided the most user-friendly and intuitive functionality of all products I have tested. Articulate products are my preferred product to work within when developing e-learning solutions, and I develop 98% of my courses within their suite of products. In my opinion, there's really no other solution.

Although at least one other vendor offers more content, it appeared the source(s) were not resident to that vendor... i.e. they are accessing yet someone else's material for presentation as part of their platform. With BizLibrary, we know they have properly vetted all content and stand behind it. The pricing for BizLibrary is also competitive, which is an additional plus.

Scalability

Articulate Storyline9.1
Based on 4 answers
It is easy to train new users and manage content. Being able to import older projects and PPT files makes it very easy to use for a lot of "moonlighters" in our department.

Return on Investment

  • We implemented a flipped classroom model for some of our training programs, and in some cases, we were able to reduce our instructor-led training time from four hours to one.
Luke Benfield profile photo
  • Employee engagement feedback related to the need for learning & development has already seen an uptick. Many express alot of gratitude/appreciation for the JIT learning opportunity.
  • 1st year ROI achieved with first half-dozen employees who participated in courses which were otherwise budgeted to be taken as one-day, offsite sessions from other (classroom) vendors.
  • Broad-based management support was at first a struggle, to be candid, but as employees have completed courses and then we've followed up, managers are now providing positive feedback from their perspective.
