Articulate Studio is constantly surprising in terms of what it can do. It is like a "Swiss Army Knife" of functionality. I've used it to build portfolios, whole interactive websites, authoring videos and I often discover novel ways to make it useful on a pretty regular basis. What would be a situation where you would not want to use Articulate Studio? Well, even though you can use it to author video and to publish websites, it's not a replacement for a video editing package or a web platform like WordPress, but there are times when it will do certain things in an astoundingly simple way superior to other tools.

I found GoSkill's project management course to be beneficial, well-paced and relatively inexpensive. After taking a course myself, I realized my team would benefit too, so we tried out the GoSkills LMS. It’s simple to use and I can easily see how well someone is doing in a course, and slot new employees into training as needed.You need not look anywhere else - everything you need is provided in full detail.

Pros
Articulate Global, Inc.
  • They made it very easy to understand how to add new content to the courses, including images, videos or audio, of course, you are still able to do text-based content as well.
  • Creating quizzes has never been easier. The ability to add controls to each question and what actions each answer creates, whether an additional question or passing to the next section. Customizing these actions are very easy to learn and add to your course.
  • Being able to use your own scoring mechanism is awesome! I like SCORM but there are many options to use including a custom one of your own. This ability allows you to pass your students over to a proprietary system that enrolls them in the next course, or use the built-in utilities to provide the next course or quiz, the choice is yours!

  • The presentation of the material
  • The tests after the course was good but not too hard
  • Follow up after the class was not overwhelming.

Cons
Articulate Global, Inc.
  • The audio editor is awful. Sometimes when you cut a section, it actually takes a different section that you selected. Especially when in zoom mode. You have to then undo the action, and re-do. Also, scrubbing through the audio is difficult. If you're exporting audio, it can glitch during the process. I avoid using the audio editor whenever I can.
  • After all these years, it's still a buggy program. You can be doing your recordings, and a sudden message appears saying that something went wrong and needs to close. I've done re-installs, contacted support, and I constantly clear the temp folder. Still happens. Also, it's a good idea to export your audio, and there have been times the program freezes up on me, and the audio file (in the .ppta file) gets corrupted and all audio is permanently lost.
  • The program can get slow when publishing, previewing or opening the audio editor.
  • The included Engage program is pretty good, but it needs more customization options. And I think they can add more modules that provide a little more engagement.

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!

I've never really had any major issues with the product (Other than the registration loop error)and my ten out of ten rating is based on the assistance I got when we initially set up the extension in Power Point. I found the support folks to be professional, helpful and friendly

Articulate Studio is very much a leader in the e-learning space. It stacks up well against other tools designed to quickly and easily build and update CBTs by managers and super-users versus needing to invest time and effort in dedicated e-learning developers. Process improvement initiatives and cross-functional departments are empowered to develop their trainings themselves and identify areas for future development.

I needed to take a project management course and didn't know where to start. I did a bunch of Googling and decided on GoSkills because it was a quick class. I was really happy I started with the GoSkills Project Management class because it was a great introduction to to the industry. Based on the knowledge I got from GoSkills I was able to decide to pursue more Project Management education. I started on trying to decide which online education platform to go with. It was between Google/Coursera, Udemy, GoSkills and maybe a bootcamp. I went with GoSkills because it was short and I could get an idea of what I was going to learn in a longer course. I'm really happy with the path I took and would recommend it to anyone looking to learn about project management

Return on Investment
Articulate Global, Inc.
  • I only see positive impact since it is a very easy to use tool for rapid learning. The only point is to know what is possible to develop using this tool to avoid any kind of frustration afterwards.
  • Another positive impact is that we don't need a diversified development team. There is no need of technical professionals, and a creative instructional designer is enough to develop effective learning content using Studio.
  • The third positive impact is that Studio makes possible to realize short-term projects, mainly when there's already a PowerPoint presentation.

  • I was able to see that I liked a subject
  • It made me realize I wanted to go down the path of a much more in depth course
  • I learned I can still learn even at my age
  • Just having another certification to post on LinkedIn and maybe a resume is really nice.
