Storyline 2

Overall Satisfaction with Articulate

Used to create e-learning content.
  • Allows courseware creator to manage the flow of the participant by using variables.
  • Embedded and online media
  • Customizable size of stage.
  • No help utility. They provide a crowd-sourced forum where you can post questions. I'm probably old-school, but "post and pray" is inherently unsatisfactory. In fairness they do have employees who monitor the forums and usually you get an answer back quickly. But you have to be very, very careful about how you frame the question, and include all the things you've tried because they tend to reply with obvious, and typically useless answers.
  • Ability to set active buttons and keyboard shortcuts on master pages so you can put them and take them out once, instead of having to put them on every page.
  • Dramatically shortened the time required to create e-learning.
  • Allows creating of e-learning with higher degree of user interaction.
  • lectora
I've used, and liked Lectora. Articulate Storyline was the company's choice. I'm happy with it.
Articulate works well, and we now have an installed base of courseware I'd rather not have to try to convert.
I give Articulate a high recommendation. It's easy to use and quite serviceable. Occupies the same authoring space as Lectora. Storyline and Lectora are the only two e-learning authoring tools I would recommend. There are some well-known "Brand X" tools I'd recommend staying away from (but I'm not going to put specific names in print, sorry).
