Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Generally, we use Articulate Storyline to develop training materials for our staff. We often use the software to help guide workflows and processes that prove useful in getting new team members up to speed or training existing team members on additional processes. It is used across each department in the organization, depending on training needs. The main business problem it addresses is that it allows us to provide easy access to training for team members that can be accessible from multiple locations and devices. Moreover, it does not require additional resources to have someone directly on hand to train the employee in the processes, limiting the opportunity cost. Employees learn the process by getting walked through via Storyline and any follow-up questions can be addressed directly as needed.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Articulate is a transversal software in our organization since we use it to design courses of our own catalog, but also to design courses for our fully customized clients.

The great flexibility of the storyline allows us to create courses for computers but also for mobile phones, all from the same complete suite.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I've used Storyline for nearly anything you can think of at my organization. Now, I am the only one developing with it currently and I'm within our Training department.

We've had a variety of issues come up where Storyline wasn't originally considered for development. In the end, though, it was obviously the answer. From just SCORM holders for video, which required completion or retention monitoring, to an interactive map for a client in the exported format of a website, I've used Storyline for a variety of projects.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

My company uses Articulate Storyline for all of our e-Learning course development. Additionally, we use several of the other pieces of software that they have built into the software suite, including Articulate Rise and Articulate Review. We use rise as our go-to software when we need to develop e-Learning that is mainly text-based and needs to look beautiful. It is not always the best in the traditional definition as e-Learning, but it certainly gets the job done when it needs to be. We also use Articulate Review, which has been a tremendous help. We now can so send clients e-Learning projects that we need them to look at and get feedback from them in real-time. Before this was along and challenging process uploading courses to an LMS, sending them a link and then having them manually type their comments and then send them in email form. We then had to match them up to the slide that they were referencing to and make the changes. This software suite has fixed this.

Articulate Storyline is a great rapid eLearning development tool. Anyone who can use PowerPoint can use Articulate, so it has done a tremendous job making eLearning development available to non-learning professionals. There are certainly more advanced techniques within the platform that allow it to complete on a deeper level with more robust tools such as Adobe Captivate; however, the learning curve for Storyline is so short that you can produce high-quality courses with very little effort.

We have a team of dedicated developers who work in multiple platforms. One of our main tools used with multiple clients is Storyline. We often recommend Storyline for ease of use and versatility. Using this tool allows us to reach a high level of fidelity and be able to turn over the work to the client for their own on-going maintenance.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Currently, Storyline is used mainly by our Instructional Design Team. A few other departments use it in a small capacity for training purposes. We initially purchased the product as a way to help enhance our online courses. We wanted to develop interactions that would engage students with more than just text. We wanted to use interactions such as drag and drop, reveal answers, and other ways to help the learner understand the content.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Articulate Storyline to develop online learning courses that are deployed to our LMS. I do not know if it is being used by other departments, but I would imagine that it is. Everyone in our department uses it. Although it happened before I joined the department, I believe that management made the decision to use Storyline when Adobe announced that they would no longer support Flash.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Articulate Storyline is only being used by me as a content developer at the company. I use it to create fun, interactive training on complex topics. It addresses the business problem of learning complex material more quickly. The topics that must be learned by our consultants are extremely complex and it is very easy to get confused and/or bored. Articulate Storyline allows us to make learning more engaging and fun, and thus, our learners learn more!

Articulate Storyline is a really great, user-friendly way to make interactive online educational content. We have a lot of professors who are not tech savvy and having something that they can use to help create their online courses without feeling overwhelmed is a tremendous asset. While we do most of the course construction, many professors want to contribute as well.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

My department under HR exclusively uses Articulate 360 to create web-based training courses. The courses that we create pertain to all different subjects including professional development, product knowledge, showroom, residential/commercial trade, facilities supply, operations, sales, systems, etc. All employees across the organization have access to these training courses.

Use of Articulate Storyline addresses the problems we often face with the expense of sending trainers to conduct a training class in person. Using web-based content is efficient in saving time and money so that the knowledge applied can be more hands-on and convenient.
