Articulate Storyline

I think Storyline is great for self-reviews. It is fairly easy to set up a "Drag and Drop" slide with a few questions to drag over to the right answer. You can use pictures and graphics to make it more appealing and interactive. It is also very useful for training processes. For example, if you wanted to show someone how to use a specific program, you can use screenshots and screen video captures to help show the process. I think it would be harder to use Storyline for a class lecture or just for videos. For example, if you wanted to record a physical classroom, or record a screen capture in which you are just using screen captures.

Extremely well suited for simple projects, when the customer process is simple or there is no process. It is less appropriate for complex projects, when software customizations may be needed (they are possible but costs may increase a lot).

Pros

  • The UI closely resembles the general UI that is used by Microsoft Office products. It is instantly familiar, decreasing the learning curve.
  • Storyline is very powerful. If you can imagine the design, you can develop it in Storyline. The built-in templates and player skins offer a wide variety of page layouts. I particularly like how Storyline organizes slides by scenes and provides a visual map to help you see the course navigation.
  • Storyline is not a resource hog. You can't simply install it on any machine, but you do not need a tricked-out rig with gaming specs to run. It runs very smoothly on an Intel i5 with 8gb of RAM with plenty of system resources available for Microsoft Office and Adobe applications to run in different windows.
  • Storyline output HTML is very clean. With other authoring tools, bad Javascript and poor CSS output really had a negative impact as you had to devise workarounds and implement patches for them to work with your LMS. Storyline is the closest authoring tool that I've found "just works."

  • Ease-of-use: very friendly, intuitive, simple processes for administration.
  • Flexible and simple content publishing: easy to manage learning plans, upload learning content in several formats, assessment/testing creation/control.
  • Modular features: allow to activate/dactivate features, some of them are paid. Very useful to set up the platform accordingly.

Cons

  • Pricing is more straight forward but I would have liked to see a monthly alternative similar to Adobe. The one size fits all may be too much for everyone. An a la carte option again similar to Adobe (Photoshop and Lightroom for a price) might be helpful in this case as well. (Storyline and Content Library for a price).

  • I believe the pricing positioning could be improved, specially to support projects with more than 350 active users.
  • It would be great if the product had an integrated authoring tool to create more compelling learning content inside the platform. Today it is possible to convert PPT files or upload videos.
  • The Brazilian Portuguese version could be improved. It is possible to apply adjustments using the translation tool, but a few resources are always in English.

I hardly ever get a response that solves my problem. As a matter of fact, I submitted a support call almost 2 months ago about a problem I was experiencing with Articulate Online (for which we pay a handsome amount every year) and, for the first month I had to keep following up and was told it was being sent to quality assurance to investigate. Well, I still have not received a response to my issue. In my mind, this is a huge fail on the part of Articulate and I am always disappointed with the lack of support I receive.

Online Training

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!

Alternatives Considered

Articulate Storyline is head and shoulders above the other tools on the market. It truly combines the features of most rapid e-Learning tools on the market in one easy-to-use tool. And, the Articulate community is just a bonus addition...no other company's support can compare to what Articulate provides.

More features, easy to use/ friendly, better technical support, variety of native intergrations (app model).

Scalability

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.
