Articulate Storyline

Customizing interactions is one of its strongest points. Again, if you can dream up the interaction, there is probably a way to use triggers, variables, conditions and states to achieve it. Although the initial learning curve is a little steep, if you put in the time, you can really get the power out of the tool to accomplish some really great things! Their community is a great place to shorten the learning curve quickly.

Litmos

Litmos is ideal for creating short instructional content coupled with quizzes and assessments that can be reviewed by instructors as online or PDF reports. It also allows instructors to design and issue certificates upon completion of their courses as well.

Pros

  • If you can dream it, you can most likely create it in this product. It is very flexible and intuitive.
  • By using triggers, variables, and states, you have the ability to harness design capabilities that would otherwise require a high level of programming expertise.
  • Integrating audio, video and animations into a module/course is very simple.
  • Its interface is very easy to use and understand.

  • Litmos is very well suited for small to midsize corporations who want to satisfy their LMS needs with a very economical solution.
  • The software features a large set of integration with other frameworks and technologies that make its adoption a breeze. At our university, it is integrated with OneLogin to allow Single Sign-on capabilities.
  • The instructional content on Litmos can be customized to present a gamification look and feel. With badges and leaderboard features, it makes the learning process more fun.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Providing the person training a new hire with visibility into time and areas spent as an indicator of effort
  • Not sure if there is a way to alert team members to refreshed or updated content added to the system

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.

For what we need in the very near future, Litmos does not offer us the required capability. Ideally, we are looking for an integrated LMS, coaching, mobile support and content creation platform. Litmos may have the LMS part covered but there are other platforms that do this better along with providing an integrated all-in-one service or at the very least support API integration with other vendors to meet our requirements.

Usability

Articulate Storyline7.9
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.

The Articulate user community (including staff and users) is amazing. There are so many people willing to help each other and offer advice. You can tell people are passionate about this software and supporting new users who are struggling. When you're a new user, it really helps to know you're not alone if you get stuck.

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!

Alternatives Considered

When you look at Storyline's most common direct competitors, they are all very comparable in terms of features. Certainly, each tool has a capability or two that is different from it's peers, but truly, these products are extremely comparable when evaluating features- especially the features that are most used by developers and designers.However, I worked in a department of 7. We tried Lectora. Only two of us could truly get competent in the tool. The majority just couldn't "get it". Despite having great features, the users couldn't leverage the features. The team also used Captivate for years. 4 of the team would be considered competent or productive in the tool (but only 2 at advanced levels). When Storyline came in, 6 became competent at a high level within 3 months (or sooner).

Previous to Litmos we used JIRA as the repository for most of our training materials. The user interface with Litmos is far, far, easier and conducive to this particular need. The ability to see how far someone has gotten in certifications, formal progress tracking and testing have all been huge benefits. It also makes monitoring and updating content much easier for our intended purpose.

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

  • Time Savings for overall length of course
  • Ability to standardize materials
Bridget Mealia profile photo
  • We've been able to onboard significantly more new hires, in a much faster manner.
  • The burden of maintaining training materials no longer has to reside with many people, it is now centralized and can be efficiently managed by one person.
  • We've been able to sunset a couple other programs that we were using for content management and training progress.
