Storyline 2

Overall Satisfaction with Articulate

Storyline is being used more and more by the organization as we develop more and more sophisticated eLearning training. It provides the kind of flexibility that just doesn't exist in competing projects which allows us to create an astonishing variety of projects from a single tool.
  • It can be a blank canvas where your creativity may be the only thing holding you back.
  • The ability to use variables, triggers and layers adds a powerful dimension to what can be produced.
  • As an elearning tool, it has probably the best text handling capabilities of anything on the market including sophisticated use of OpenType features.
  • I would really like to see some sort of table building function. Currently, nothing is supported here.
  • While text handling is much better than the competition, I wish that is had proper tab support and paragraph styles that could be implemented across a project.
  • It could really use some sort of certificate of completion mechanism where students could print out completion certificates at the end of a course.
  • It allows us to do sophisticated elearning in-house which is hugely money saving.
  • While it is a powerful tool it's not hard to pick up and start using right away. More sophisticated tasks can come later.
  • It has replaced several tools we used to use regularly so time required to learn the tool is less than previously.

Each tool has its strong points but I feel that Storyline just hits more of them and gives the kind of flexibility that I'm looking for. The power that Storyline makes available combined with its ease of use make it the premiere rapid eLearning tool on the market, in my opinion.
Clearly it's made for developing eLearning content. While you may use it in live presentations, there are better tools for doing that. If you are looking for a lot of built in templates for creating cookie cutter projects, Storyline is probably not the tool for you. While templates do exist, it's strong point is in providing a blank slate to create.
