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.

SAP Litmos

As an LMS it is intuitive and has a user-friendly design for both the learner and the administrator, making it accessible for almost all learners. It was designed for learning predominantly so it's great for hosting content such as SCORM packages, videos, documents etc - but improved focus on using it as both a comms and community platform, as is becoming increasingly required within the L&D space, would be advantageous as the news and discussion forums are a bit underwhelming. But it's not its core purpose, so that's understandable. The sheer volume of integrations and features that just keep coming, keeps its appeal and allows us to keep evolving the learner experience.

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.

SAP Litmos

  • Reporting- SAP Litmos allows customized and automated reporting features that will help with identifying learner trends and patterns
  • Customized Dashboards- Allows learners to see the progress, task reminders and completed achievements
  • Course Library - Offers a robust library of courses to meet the constant needs of your organization.
  • Adding course content that reflect the current time- For example Litmos readiness academy to reflect on maintaining a productive work environment during a Pandemic
  • Accessibility-training can be accessed from mobile devices on the go and a user can exit a training and pick up right where they left off without losing progress.

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.

SAP Litmos

  • Searching for teams is a challenge, as we have to enter the entire name (or know exactly how it starts), since all our locations start with Harvest of _________, it means having to type that and not just the unique indicator that would be in the blank.
  • Some reporting capability could be improved, as it only provides the latest iteration of something rather than historical data.
  • Ability to view/print an organization structure with Litmos is still a challenge.

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.

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.

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.

I think overall usability is good to great. The user and admin interface is customizable and very easy to use. Litmos does release new features every quarter and it definitely enhances and builds value for the product. Our Company uses the Litmos system extensively, probably more than the majority of Litmos clients. With feature releases, we tend to notice bugs but they are quick to fix the major ones.

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.

The knowledgebase is very generic, so beyond some basic, "this is how you use Litmos", I am not super impressed with the self-service options for troubleshooting issues or finding best practices from peers. Getting a response from specialists also takes a great deal of effort. The initial ticket is almost never where my answer comes from, so I have to wait on the escalation to take place, and usually that goes to an account specialist. Once I get that, there is usually a back and forth before we agree on what the issue is. Service is always courteous, but not efficient. I am never sure where my ticket stands with regard to escalation/processing, so I have to inquire. Service tickets and service are not a clean process right now, at least not for me. Nothing like it was during our implementation.

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.

I was not part of the purchasing process, however, I was a part of the implementation of Litmos and part of the training of how to work with Litmos. I am also the person who contacts customer service and billing.

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!

Each one of the other products reviewed had one or more required features missing. A big feature that most other LMS's didn't have was a native iOS or Android application; or if there was a mobile application, it was quite frankly difficult to use and unintuitive. The Litmos Applications worked relatively well, were simple to use and enabled us to complete all of our necessary requirements. Other features that the competition struggled with was training material compatibility; Litmos allowed for SCORM or Tin Can, videos, PowerPoint, PDFs, etc. where other programs didn't allow us to add many of these formats.

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.

  • The reporting we are able to extract from Litmos is amazing and has saved us tons of man hours.
  • SAP Litmos is extremely user friendly and our associates like logging in because of this.
  • The limitations of the assignment feature has had an impact on the Operations Training Team and the system administrator because of the removal and the assignment functionality.
