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 primarily being used by our Training and Education department as part of the Articulate 360 subscription. We also have various users that have only licensed Storyline for minimal eLearning creation. Storyline is one of our pillars for online training development. We have approximately 350 courses that have been developed in Storyline over the years. It allows us to create in-depth and interactive training for our global workforce.

We originally were recommended Articulate 360 specifically to use their Rise cloud-based platform. But as our team and product offerings grow, as well as the scope of training we must provide, Storyline has turned into a key piece of what we use to produce our training. Our Customer Experience team uses it to create detailed, narrated, click-by-click walkthroughs for our customers to use in onboarding. We either host the courses ourselves or allow customers to load the SCORM files into their own LMS.

We use Articulate Storyline to build all of our e-learning training that went out across the organization in the United States. And help us address the problem of providing consistent training to over 20 hospitals. I did states for us to be compliant with state and federal regulations which are positive

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Articulate Storyline is being used as a course authoring tool in creating our online learning throughout the hospital. It is primarily being used by our department in creating professional development, orientation training, and compliance training. We also use it to create embedded quizzes and exams for testing new staff and nurses.

We use Articulate Storyline within our training unit to develop interactive eLearning, video demonstrations, and other training experiences. Our organization is constantly going through changes. Articulate Storyline allows us to quickly develop relevant training to support the changes for our statewide staff without having to conduct it live or in person.

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.

Storyline is used across our entire organization to create training for both internal employees and our corporate partners. We create sales and technical training for a variety of roles. It addresses the problem of having a global workforce that needs consistency in training delivery. We can release a training module for the entire company to support initiatives.

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.

Storyline was purchased primarily for us to build our eLearning onboarding and compliance programs. We previously flew people all over the world and were able to drastically cut travel costs by implementing eLearning options.

We use Articulate Storyline as the authoring tool for our eLearning content that is then uploaded to our LMS. This allows us to create and provide content specific to our products for our internal and external customers and is used across our entire organization. It facilitates the easy creation of our own content for our own products and we have also used it for our internal compliance courses.

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!

For most of my instructional design needs, I use Storyline and the Articulate 360 suite. For our Training and Development team, Storyline is used as a rapid development tool to create online learning courses and training videos to be hosted on our LMS. It allows for quick turnaround time and is an easy design platform.
