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

Articulate Storyline

  • 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."

  • The user interface is well designed and for the most part very intuitive.
  • Administration is fairly straight forward - I've used other LMSs that require intense concentration and pages of written notes to remember how to create and deploy a course - this is not the case with Docebo.
  • Docebo is an open system that has many integrations.

Cons

Articulate Storyline

  • Although the professional content library is available, it is still pretty easy for new users to make overly cartoonish looking pieces of training.
  • The program is very heavy load so you have to have a pretty powerful computer to run it effectively.
  • Final projects can be played by anyone but they can sometimes be glitchy because they are a bit heavy for users to run on their computers.

  • The new certification module is not very robust. To me this is typical of many of their modules/apps you can integrate into the system. to say the least, they leave much to be desired (for example, I never could get eCommerce to work properly).
  • Support has been truly awful the last few weeks - not only am i not getting timely responses, but i am not getting helpful responses. Functionality I paid for does not work and support, when they respond, seem to be at a loss as to how to help me.
  • Easier to customize and a more consistent experience across the product.
  • In three years I do not believe they have implemented any of my feature requests. It is a shame because many of their new features seem to have a lot of potential, but after I get in and use.
  • It feels a bit like Docebo is "nickel and diming." Some of the paid apps seem to be functionality that should be included in the basic subscription (eCommerce, gamification, having an https domain, etc.).

We can easily convert our older content into Storyline 2 courses, which makes updates a breeze. We've been well-pleased with the software, Articulate's dedication to releasing bug fixes and new features, and the fact that it is well-received by our associates and stakeholders.

Usability

Articulate Storyline 7.8
Based on 15 answers
The basics are easy to learn but you won't get really robust activities from using just the basics. However, if you can invest the time in learning how to use all of Storyline's features, you'll have tremendous learning development power at your fingertips. I do have to say, though, that there is a beautiful logic to how everything in Storyline works. Once you learn a few of the advanced features, you can learn them all because there's a similar underlying logic. The interface is also very appealing and friendly.

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

Articulate is a much more solid product, many more features, and produces a quality deliverable.

We selected it because it integrated with Adobe Connect for our live virtual classroom content. As we are no longer using Adobe Connect, we are beginning to consider other systems.

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.

  • Articulate Storyline is a true rapid e-Learning suite of tools...we have decreased our development timeline significantly across the board. Our customers love the speed with which we can create interactive and engaging courses.

  • We have many active users taking course content, which is great, but not a measurable ROI on our investment in Docebo.
