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.

Pros

  • Storyline integrates with the Canvas LMS fairly seamlessly. There have been a few glitches, but for the most part, the interactions we have created will play directly in the Canvas LMS.
  • Storyline is great for creating short drag and drop interactions for self-reviews or even graded assignments. Its many options for quizzes such as "answer reveal" or using tabs help the student get a different perspective on the content rather than just an "A, B, or C" answer.
  • Storyline is great for tutorials or training sessions. There are many options to help guide the learner (or employee) through a process. it is not just linear, but you can branch the slides based on the answers. A great way to engage the learner or employee.

  • Very intuitive system, easy to implement, not much training needed.
  • Excellent support both for implementation and everyday work.
  • New features & functions are added gradually, making eloomi good value for money.

Cons

  • One very time consuming process in creating a slide is synching up animation with a voice recording. I find I spend a lot of time dragging markers, sorting through layers, and having to constantly fine tune each second of the slide. The tools are fine, and I am not sure how this could be made faster, but a more efficient way of doing this task would be a big time saver.
  • In the adult training world it is important that end products look professional and are able to reflect the style of the business using them. Although Articulate Storyline offers many options in its characters, animations, etc., it can sometimes be a challenge to avoid a juvenile feel to the training. Sometimes those characters are downright comical, and frustrating to work with when you're trying to provide a polished technical training module.
  • When I first approach a new training project it can be overwhelming thinking about how each slide should look and function, how I want the material to flow, and how the user will transition from one topic to the next. I would love to see a brainstorming/ slide layout/ or rudimentary storyboard function. Maybe something which could be published and shared with team members for everyone to provide feedback and ideas on before development begins on the actual module slides.

  • The functionality between countries, i.e. combining data from the different companies into joint reports etc., could be improved.
  • The survey function is working fine, but with multiple companies it could be improved, making it easier to make surveys inviting employees from different companies.
  • The Finnish translation could be better sometimes.

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.

Usability

Articulate Storyline7.8
Based on 15 answers
It does what we need it to. We create computer based learning and occasionally have someone use the tool via a tablet. It works great for that! If you were going to use it on a smartphone, I am not sure it would be the best choice. Since most formal eLearning courses are better suited to a larger screen then I would rate it highly every time.

Support

They are support-superstars and the software they use for support is excellent too (I don't know what it is). The model they use for support should be followed by all companies. It is a conversation/discussion forum model that shows everyone's questions in a knowledge base capacity so you can get the help you need in a speedy way.

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

Adobe Captivate is a powerful authoring tool that creates great eLearning. I chose Articulate Storyline because it gave me the same great output and was not hard to learn. I don't need a special "language" to use it. At a former company where we used Adobe Captivate, it took me much longer to get things created. I get an interactive course that looks great and meets our objectives that is not so complicated to learn how to create with Storyline.

eloomi gives us everything (and more!) that we were lacking in our previous system. If our former system was a Trabant, eloomi is a new modern sportscar.

Scalability

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

  • Quick way to impart knowledge, best practise and updates to a wider audience.
  • Able to test learners understanding of the information given by interaction tests of learning that capture attention
  • Cost savings. This has been a huge positve for us as a business due to the number of learners we have. Being able to reach them remotely has revolutionized the way we engage with learners.
  • eLearning can never fully replace the impact of face to face training. This is sometimes a message lost with management as they tend to see the cost savings the good eLearning brings rather than what learners may be missing out on.

  • I don´t have any numbers but the cost per employee is a lot less with eloomi compared to our previous system, and still eloomi gives us much more when it comes to functionality.
