  • Positive: We have had higher engagement and participation on course materials created with Articulate Storyline. We have been able to create content that is both organization- and role-specific rather than a more generic approach we would get from purchasing learning modules from outside sources.
  • Positive: We have been able to replace some of our old training methods with newer, more intuitive methods that guide the user on what to do rather than simply just telling them. We've replaced what are often word-based instruction, with interactive learning experiences to maximize knowledge transfer.

  • In scenarios where development is high-quantity, meaning lots of modules, Storyline allows for great speed and efficiency.
  • Efficiency gains are harder in low volumes.
  • Great for handing over content to clients for their own on-going maintenance.

  • Storyline has allowed my team to take the eCourses vendors to provide to us and ensure that they function properly and look perfect. Vendors are not always reliable when it comes to copy editing, etc.
  • Our company has gotten bogged down with eCourses created in Storyline which makes it financially and administratively difficult to switch to another tool. In this regard, it has not provided very good ROI.

  • Making things simpler to create is always a huge plus. It saves time and makes us more efficient as a team, giving us more time to create more courses.
  • For the price, you could do a lot worse. It's definitely not the smallest investment, but if you have the funding to afford it, you'll be glad you have this tool.
  • It saved us a lot of headache with having professors wanting a more hands-on role in creating their courses but not knowing how to use our other programs.

Return on Investment

  • Pro: using knowledge paths, all users can get one file with customized training
  • Con: the training sometimes freezes when going from training to a third party site
  • Pro: with very little training, a person can make a professional program
  • Con: the providers sunset previous packages pretty quickly so buyers need either to be self sufficient or ready to change software every couple of years
