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.

Love that Learndot has Stripe integration, love the fact that all of our registration now happens on a single website instead of having courses listed on one site and then having to go to Eventbrite for the actual registration. Love that it integrates with SFDC and WebEx.

Pros

Articulate Storyline

  • Articulate Storyline has a very intuitive interface and is very easy to learn. My mother was the one who originally introduced it to me and she was using it before I was (and she's a librarian, not a content developer or training designer!).
  • The support team is EXCELLENT. If you ever run into any glitches, issues, or confusion, you can contact Articulate Support and they will respond quickly with a high rate of solving your problem (at least mine, anyway!).
  • Articulate provides a content library of images and templates that can effortlessly make your finished Storyline projects high quality and professional-looking.

Cons

Articulate Storyline

  • While it is easy to use, there is still ramp up time for the non-technical person like myself. Seeing others' cool work and realizing how many elements are in it can be daunting. It just takes time and some study to get some of the more complicated interactions down.
  • The product is a good value for the price. I would have like a couple more characters to have been included.

I've been using Articulate products for over 5 years, and there's really no reason to turn my back on them now. They've proven themselves.

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

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

As mentioned earlier, I used to use Adobe Captivate prior to Storyline. It has been at least 3 1/2 years since I've used Captivate, so it may have gotten better since then. But, from my experience, Articulate is much more intuitive and has a lot more features than Captivate. Overall, it is easier to use and is easier to complete a project in Storyline as opposed to Captivate.

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.
