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.

Prezi

Prezi is well suited to presentations with many images, particularly those where it is useful to zoom into those images. It is also good for showing the alternate path and multiple choices in presentations. It is less appropriate for predominantly textual content, particularly, if this content follows a sequential order. Prezi benefits from an extra care in organizing visual elements and selecting meaningful images and, as such, requires a bit more effort than a typical slideshow application.

Pros

  • The use of the timeline and triggers within Storyline help to create, well time and interactive courses.
  • Being able to use and program variables within the course allows you to keep track of what your learners are doing, as well as recall information or create branching scenarios.
  • The Community.... The community behind Articulate is priceless! Want to do something and don't know how to do it? You can find various posts to assist you or even ask it as a question in the community to get an answer. Not to mention the support that Articulate itself provides is amazing.

Cons

  • More preloaded design features would make it a little easier for rapid development.
  • Although Storyline 2 has more (and better) audio features, it would be nice to have a place to edit the audio within your course. (By edit I mean to do more advanced functions, they do provide basic audio editing functionality.

  • I think a problem is that if you do not use paid version if you must be connected to the internet
  • if you are not aware of what you are doing it is easy to get lost due to the multiple connections since there is no way to do it linearly and then pass the presentation to an interactive format

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

Based on 15 answers
Overall the ease of use is one of its endearing qualities. You can open the program, start a new project and get going regardless of your expertise with it. If you have ever created a presentation of any kind you can get going with Storyline on day 1 the first time you open it

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

I think that since Prezi the first tool that I used, I am used to using only that. For me, it is more comfortable to be able to order ideas within other ideas and blocks.

Scalability

Articulate Storyline9.1
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

  • Tremendous increase in our clients becoming trained on our software
  • Customer satisfaction since clients can view the program many times whenever they need to do so
  • Meeting a business objective to provide consistent and quality training programs for our clients

  • Internally, the presentations have been well received, which is important for gaining marketshare around ideas and communicating effectively.
  • The tool is not widely used because of the lack of analytics tied to presentations.
  • The tool is helpful, but is not something that the company is currently subscribed to based on the aforementioned lack of intelligence.
