Likelihood to Recommend

Articulate Studio

Articulate Studio is fantastic for sharing information based eLearning content that can be developed quickly and easily by developers who are not well versed in programming, scripting or graphic design. It is less appropriate for eLearning that requires simulations or complex interactions as the bulk of the content is derived from templates.

Docebo LMS

If you need to get up and running quickly with an online training system, are okay with mediocre functionality, and want to use course content from their marketplace, Docebo is a good option. If you want a more powerful system and good support, then I do not recommend Docebo.

Pros

  • Integrating very well with PPT
  • Allow authors to create ad-hoc video and audio clips on the spot
  • Easy to export SCORM formats for LMS integration
  • Supplies rich library of stock graphics, footage and 'characters' to allow for fast build out

  • The user interface is well designed and for the most part very intuitive.
  • Administration is fairly straight forward - I've used other LMSs that require intense concentration and pages of written notes to remember how to create and deploy a course - this is not the case with Docebo.
  • Docebo is an open system that has many integrations.

Cons

  • Interaction level is basic. Studio does not provide features to develop a high-interactive content. That's why Articulate released another tool called Storyline, which is much more sophisticated.
  • Pricing is high. I think Studio is overpriced considering other tools available (including Storyline). Articulate did not release new updates of Studio in the last few years.
  • Lack of evolution. There was not a new release or update of Studio in the last few years (since 2013). It seems that Articulate is not investing on this product anymore.

  • The new certification module is not very robust. To me this is typical of many of their modules/apps you can integrate into the system. to say the least, they leave much to be desired (for example, I never could get eCommerce to work properly).
  • Support has been truly awful the last few weeks - not only am i not getting timely responses, but i am not getting helpful responses. Functionality I paid for does not work and support, when they respond, seem to be at a loss as to how to help me.
  • Easier to customize and a more consistent experience across the product.
  • In three years I do not believe they have implemented any of my feature requests. It is a shame because many of their new features seem to have a lot of potential, but after I get in and use.
  • It feels a bit like Docebo is "nickel and diming." Some of the paid apps seem to be functionality that should be included in the basic subscription (eCommerce, gamification, having an https domain, etc.).

Usability

Based on 1 answer
This is very useable software even for novice eLearning authoring users. People with some PowerPoint experience should be fine with this software and even Excel!

Support

Overall support is great for issues that they are able to help with. Other times it seems like instead of fixing the bugs you are told to wait for the newest version so instead of getting a fix for free you have to pay to upgrade. I have found this frustrating

Alternatives Considered

The main advantage of Articulate Studio, when compared to other tools (such as Lectora and Storyline), is the simplicity of use. There is no need of programming or advanced technical knowledge. Other tools are more flexible and advanced in terms of features but they also demand professionals with specific competencies, so the development process may become more complex and longer.

We selected it because it integrated with Adobe Connect for our live virtual classroom content. As we are no longer using Adobe Connect, we are beginning to consider other systems.

Return on Investment

  • When I have a complex project, Articulate Studio is my go to solution.
  • It pays for itself in the first project.
Frank Broen profile photo
  • We have many active users taking course content, which is great, but not a measurable ROI on our investment in Docebo.
