- It is very intuitive and user friendly. There is no need for previous authoring tool experience as it has many options to customize any learning program.
- The interactive option from the block library has nice collection of engaging options to chose from.
- You can use one of the many options already made as templates.
- It has a very clean and simple UI to keep track of your courses.
- It doesn't have the ability to create sub-lessons which would make navigation easier.
- The multiple response in the knowledge check only has the option for one question at a time, it would be great if you could make a mini quiz with several options instead of having to create new "multiple responses" in order to have more than one question.
- The scenario option could be improved to make it easier to use, sometimes it is confusing as to where the answers and the prompts should go.
- The match option sometimes doesn't mix the options and they are left right next to each other.
This helps us to provide added value during the on-boarding process and also to track who is completing training very easily within our partner companies. They can host in their LMS or we also self-host if needed.
- Export to LMS.
- Ease of use/creation.
- Quiz creation.
- Robust importing.
- Self-hosting option is not built in so you HAVE TO have an LMS, which is overkill for one-offs.
- Cloud based but a desktop app, kind of annoying.
- Price is high if you're not making many courses.
These webinars and eLearning tools are compliant with popular eLearning formats such as SCORM and AICC. We can track the user's progress and provide reporting based on quizzes and answer fields. Users can gain continual education credits and print certificates.
- Has many templates, a full content library, and plenty of references and tutorials.
- It is user-friendly and functions within powerpoint so your organization can pick up the software fairly easy.
- Adding seats and more users is easy.
- Sharing review links and getting others to review and collaborate is a feature that Articulate added.
- There are some functions in scoring and reporting that can be improved. I have had to use advanced scripting to accomplish some tasks that could be added to the product.
- Their Rise product is great for using template content blocks and creating a modern look to training courses - however, it is limited in the amount of customization compared to Storyline 360.
- The audio editor can be a little jumpy when trying to micro-edit sound.
The solution it has solved for us is to be able to create online learning content compatible with Learning Management Systems, both rapidly with Rise 360 and more sophisticated with Storyline 360.
- As the leader in the eLearning market, there is plenty of community support and training readily available.
- Is cloud-based so can be accessed anywhere.
- Very user friendly so even non-traditional L&D users can navigate and create content.
- The only negative I can think of is that it was behind in moving to the Cloud, so we didn't use it a few years ago because Cloud based apps are a must for us. Since we've started using it again we've had to develop many courses in 360 again. However since transition period it has been smooth sailing.
The introduction of Rise 360 is particularly useful for non-specialists who want to create online learning content because it's a user-friendly WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) tool with templates and preset animations that do all the heavy for you.
- Creates interactive training sessions that are also multi-layers.
- Add-ins include video, images, and other media platforms for greater interaction.
- User-friendly for even first-time course developers.
- While there is an "undo" button, it would be helpful to see prior versions for ongoing editing and development of courses.
- Interactive training - Articulate 360 offers many rich interactive features to keep learners engaged
- Content Library - Articulate 360 has a huge library of content including images and videos, characters, and templates.
- Product training - The Articulate 360 website (for product training) and e-Learning Heroes (for best practices) websites are the best in the business. Articulate offers video guides, webinars and user forums. If you have a question about Articulate, it's super easy to find an answer.
- Accessibility - Articulate 360 is great at keeping up-to-date with accessibility features but it would be nice if they offered more education on these requirements.
- Articulate 360 offers a complete tool set for mobile and desktop training solutions
- Articulate 360 offers the possibility to quickly translate an e-learning course into every language
- The learning curve of the toolset within Articulate 360 is easy to understand
- More flexibility to customize the look and feel of Articulate Rise templates (think of position of corporate logo and colors in quizzes)
- A functionality that I would love to see is A morph transition
- Industry standard software with fantastic community support.
- Suitable for creating both complex and simple interactions.
- Widely used, so provides peace of mind to our customers, giving them the security that they can easily find another vendor should they wish.
- I'd like to see improved global styling options in Rise. For example, changing font size and colour across an entire module would be a massive time-saver.
- Reverse page transitions would be a nice to have addition to Storyline. For example, if a user clicks to view the previous slide, the transition would animate to look as though the page was moving back, instead of forward.
- The addition of a fully customisable colour palette that carries through globally to Rise would be welcomed.
Rise is a fast authoring environment that does not skimp on the overall look and feel. There are micro interactions and it looks simply gorgeous.
- Multi-device authoring.
- Super easy review cycle.
- All tools you need to create awesome e-learning.
- Super HTML5 output.
- The subscription model is annual, would be great to see a monthly payment plan.
- The subscription model is all or nothing. It would be great to be able to select the tools you want to use.
I've republished various existing Articulate Studio and Storyline projects to make sure they work properly across various devices as well as created various Articulate Rise modules for our Comms and IT department training our employees during our new intranet launch.
We create e-learning for our clients using the Articulate 360 suite of products. Our clients include small and large companies, not-for-profits and universities. We also provide Articulate software training for corporate clients.
- The addition of tools like Rise, a web-based, fully responsive e-learning course creator, Review and Content Library make it a fantastic suite of products. I no longer need to purchase any other tools to do my job--it's all included in Articulate 360!
- Storyline's HTML5 output and flexible publishing options are awesome.
- I love that responsiveness and multi-device support was paramount in developing Articulate 360, while keeping the robustness of amazing tools like Storyline.
- Articulate Review is such a big win! No longer are big and messy spreadsheets necessary to get your projects reviewed, Review does it all in one place, super organised and works great!
- The folks at Articulate bring out updates and upgrades to the software regularly, and it's so great! So many new features every year, and incredibly fast response to bugs and issues.
- While I quite like the subscription model, monthly payments would be great, with a discount for those who choose to pay yearly, like 12 months for the price of 11.
- Great customer support; they know what they are talking about
- Includes all the features that I need
- Easy to use
- They listen to their clients wants and include them in new product versions
- Great product community
- Built-in client review portal makes edits easy to decipher
- Storylines accessibility features are good, but I expect that as legislated requirements increase, so will their available accessibility features
- I wish that Rise was more accessible
- Robust set of tools that covers the primary needs of instructional designers.
- Rise in particular is easy to use and makes creating training material quick.
- Storyline has a pretty steep learning curve.
- Some of the team functionality is limited, especially when it comes to role permissions and sharing. This has been improved a bit but it still not ideal.
- Articulate has a specific software to create responsive courses, called RISE, which allows you to easily design courses that visually adapt to all mobile devices.
- It has a function to create accessible and inclusive courses, complying with the WCAG 2.1 regulation, so that users with certain disabilities can access the courses without inconvenience.
- Some features of 360 could be enabled for an offline version, in order to continue using the software in specific cases where there is no internet connection.
- When we import projects from previous versions in 360, in some cases errors will be generated with the use of patterns, and we must change the name of the variables manually in order to integrate the files.
- Assessment variety
- Easy LTI integration with existing LMS
- Ease of use as a skin in MS PowerPoint
- Articulate, though it integrates well with MS PowerPoint, tends to slow things down.
- Articulate is trying the 'teams' concept for collaborative team building, and the software has not yet quite gotten seamless.
- Articulate needs to delineate that Storyline is now a part of Articulate 360 and not confuse the long-time user when updating to the 360 suite.
- Easy, even for a novice to produce a video quickly.
- If you know PowerPoint, then you can use Articulate. You can use it even if you don't know PowerPoint.
- They have amazing training sessions via regular webinars. I've learned so many things from these amazing pros!
- Well, we have had a few issues with screen recordings.
- The biggest issues we have had have been addressed fairly quickly. But, because we use the application in a way that most of their users do not, we feel a little like orphans. We are not treated that way, but can't help but feel that way sometimes.
- They are very much open to suggestions for enhancements. Of course, these things take time and have to be feasible and wanted by a majority. Because of what we do, we understand that very well.
- Articulate 360 is very easy-to-use and user friendly, while in no way sacrificing functionality. Comparable tools like Captivate have a much steeper learning curve and don't provide as polished of a user experience.
- Articulate 360 creates incredible interactive training courses. Using a variety of different elements, you can create animations, videos, and card-based courses that allow users to interact directly with the content.
- Articulate 360 has some problems uploading and synching audio files, particularly audio that is recorded in stereo. When we uploaded some audio files that were recorded in stereo it created a weird echoing effect that we couldn't get rid of until we converted all of the audio files to mono.
- While this may sound too persnickety, the control scheme of Articulate 360 matches that of a Microsoft product rather than that of a tool from the Adobe suite. While this is in general more user-friendly than most other programs, selecting multiple items in this tool can sometimes be a challenge as they need to be completely surrounded by the selection field.
- Articulate 360 provides a complete suite of tools needed for creating and delivering online content. They include tools for the creation of online training with resources such as audio, video, and sound files to use in your presentations, and a review tool that makes it simple to gather feedback in a single location from stakeholders.
- Articulate 360 has an incredibly supportive community of developer and employees. You can often get an answer to your questions within a few hours by posting on their public forums. They have employees that work those queues, but a lot of times, the questions get answers by the very active user community before the employees can get to your question!
- Articulate 360 tools are being updated regularly with new features that keep them on the cutting edge and at the front of the eLearning development tools vendors. They listen to their users and create features that solve the most common obstacles and streamline the most common tasks.
- Translation within Articulate 360's development tool "Rise" has some limitations. You have to export the files as an 'xlf' file which more cumbersome than the option within their "Storyline" tool which allows you to export to a word document and send to translators that way.
- Ability to edit content easily and provide updates to our users.
- The ability to share content to our SMEs for review where they can enter any changes immediately.
- The layout if very simple and not clustered.
- More template options.
- Ease of creating a template.
- Ability to have two different projects open in one window.
- Robust set of features for creating complex and engaging eLearning content.
- Flexible publishing options to accommodate users with a variety of LMS needs and requirements.
- Options to create mobile-friendly and mobile-responsive eLearning content.
- It has a fairly steep learning curve for new users.
- The relatively high price point, especially for a nonprofit organization, means we can afford a very limited number of licenses.
- The complex feature set means that details are easy to miss when creating content.
- Articulate 360 has lots of options: Rise is for simple, HTML-based course content delivery. Storyline is an animation/interactive eLearning designer that is robust yet easy to learn.
- It totally simplifies the review process. When I want to have my boss look at a course I made, I create the Articulate Review link and he can make comments at any point in the course for suggestions/corrections, and the program takes a picture of where he is looking so I know exactly what he is talking about. I can also comment back.
- The content library is high quality and professional. You can search images of people, backgrounds for Storyline projects, or entire project templates that you just plug your content into. It allows you to create content really fast and good looking.
- Storyline is a bit heavy for some computers to handle—both the design side and even the viewer side. Outputs can occasionally be glitchy.
- In Rise I would like to see more customizability, like choosing different fonts and locations of images and things like that. It's very cookie-cutter, which is actually great for newbies because it is difficult to make it look bad.
- It would be cool if Rise had a "page logic" option so you can jump to different pages based on button logic. Pretty pie-in-the-sky.
- The quiz functionality in Rise leaves a lot to be desired, but the quiz function in Storyline is SCORM compliant.
- You get Storyline 360, Peek and Rise all in one tool.
- Rise alone is almost worth the price.
- Peek is not as good as Camtasia, but I trust Articulate to eventually get on par.
- A couple of more interactive tools for Rise would make it nearly perfect.
- I would love to see a photo editing tool included, similar but not as powerful as Photoshop.
- Customer support and online help. Their online community is hugely robust and full of subject matter experts who provide constant help, tips, tricks, templates, ideas, thoughts, and networking via Storyline Heroes the online community.
- Very user-friendly and easy to use. I went through the starter booklet, watched a few videos, and was making some high-quality training with just the basics. It's very intuitive for a beginner and provides ease of use and familiar tooling to make designing simple. it also caters to high-level designers with its depth in content creation. If you can imagine it, you can pretty much build it.
- The in-house templates come free with your subscriptions. They're high-quality photos and interactions that rival Shutterstock. They maintain fidelity in publishing and are up to date and relevant to the time. If I search "cityscape" I'll get an up to date, high quality, relative cityscape image for use in my training. This filters all the way down to even the fun icons you can make yourself with their templates.
- It's buggy at times. It has constant updates though. I've personally never encountered a wall or situation in which I would say, "I need to find another program," the issues I have faced are small and very easily worked around. At times some of the logic to the building doesn't make sense but that's just getting familiar with their terminology and methodology for accomplishing a goal.
- Their support service only has an online communication method. If you're having an issue it's just a live chat option. It would be nice to be able to pick up the phone and have someone provide immediate service or at least guide me.
