Articulate Storyline

In an office where you're planning to do a large amount of module-based training, Articulate Storyline will prove useful. A consideration to make, however, is whether your team members focused on training design will have the capacity to learn the software enough to create interesting and effective training modules. The basic functions can be simple, but the more advanced capabilities of the software take considerable effort to master and employ to create the more visually appealing presentations/modules you see in much of the promotional materials. If you have a small training team (or even without anyone dedicated specifically to training and development), Storyline is not a wise choice as the cost and effort required to fully make use of the software would be far too much of a commitment to make it worthwhile.

Microsoft Teams is nevertheless the most formal and reliable communication agent that a company can use. In fact, there is no single day, that insecurity is experienced by any of the users. Two, the stability, and the operational capacity of Microsoft Teams is perfect. Finally, Microsoft Teams has a team of technicians who knows everything concerning the tool.

Pros

Articulate Storyline

  • 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.

Microsoft Teams

  • It integrates well with other Microsoft Office products. This is very important for the software to do this, since so many organizations are using other Microsoft products in their environments.
  • It pretty much has most common collaboration features that will be utilized by most organizations/companies. This is important since it allows organizations to use only one collaboration tool, rather than multiple tools to get the features they need.
  • It allows for granular permissions to be set for different user roles, channels, etc. This is important especially when you might want to set different permissions for internal and external users/collaborators.

Cons

Articulate Storyline

  • I wish that you could customize the UI ribbons to bring features you use frequently to the front and to hide options you rarely use.
  • It would be great if there was a way for non-technical collaborators (SMEs, management, etc) to be able to open a *.story file directly and provide comments. You currently have to publish the course, load it to the LMS, update the LMS, and then hope that users can find it in the LMS. A Storyline Viewer/Previewer standalone application would be awesome.
  • The price is too high for freelancers to purchase and use. I no longer contract and work exclusively for the firm, but even with our resources, the high price limits the number of licenses available to use.

Microsoft Teams

  • At times it creates problem in loading and can crash your PC
  • They can also provide an option to import some of the emojis from external sites.
  • Someone needs to simplify the working of the tools with a welcome guide for at least the new users

We are moving away from the standalone eCourse model, so depending upon when that shift happens, we might choose not to renew since we won't be supporting eCourses built in Articulate Storyline anymore. As long as we are still selling and supporting those eCourses, we will continue to renew the licenses we have.

Microsoft Teams has really shown how it can assist in this current environment but even without so, it is valuable as a tool to connect with individuals and collaborate on conference schedules.

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.

There is way too much clicking in circles and multi-step processes for tasks that should be simple, like moving documents from one place to another or navigating the document set. Things that should be drag and drop take 3 or more clicks to achieve, and you have to wait a significant amount of time for the page to load after each click. The software seems bloated and slow

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.

Microsoft Teams has a good support and an easy system to find answers. There are also tutorials available for learning the basics of the program which is very helpful. Being able to use the program on computers, tablets and mobile devices is very helpful. The whole Outlook 360 package has a good support network which makes integrating new programs into the office easier

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!

Outside of having to dedicate a powerful enough PC for the installation and having to update Flash in our browsers there really isn't much pain involved in using Articulate. For the most part this is an easy to implement and roll-out product. The installation occurs quickly and smoothly with no additional steps needed.

Alternatives Considered

Articulate Storyline

Articulate Storyline is the only authoring tool we have used with our LMS to date. We are seeing different platforms now, as opposed to LMS platforms. And, many of those have their own content. However, we will always need to create/author our own because of the nature of what we do and how we do it. I'm a big fan!

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

Articulate Storyline

  • Allows for on-demand training that is accessible to anyone in the organization instantaneously.
  • Heavily reduces travel expenses by eliminating the need for in-person training classes.
  • Gives my department creative liberties in designing content that can be customized to each and every subject/business group in the organization. No two courses are ever the same.

  • POSITIVE: We can communicate with each other without having to be at the same place, so we save on plane tickets sometimes.
  • POSITIVE: Meetings can be recorded, so people who missed it can view it at a later time.
  • BAD: People chat more instead of speaking and quality of communications decreases.
  • BAD: Teams documentation is badly formatted, hard to find and hard to edit which results in loss of time.
  • BAD: Teams often has issues, so we often have to wait for people to solve the issues before we can hold the meeting which results in loss of time.
