Overall Satisfaction with Articulate 360

I use Articulate 360 to develop SCORM learning modules on compliance, leadership training, product knowledge, and soft skills as needed for my company. I primarily use Articulate Rise, as well as the Review feature to have Subject Matter Experts (SME's) perform content reviews. I've also started sharing content access with another learning designer so we can edit each others work as needed.

Pros

  • Develop content quickly with use of pre-designed content blocks for text, media and interactions
  • Provides an easy way for Subject Matter Experts to review content in development
  • Allows variety in themes, layouts and moderate amount of customization in the branding and course look/feel

Cons

  • I'd like to see more variety in the types of interactions available. The ones that exist now (hot spot, drag n' drop, flip cards, etc.) are useful, but it would be nice to have more options without having to build something custom in Storyline to pull over. For example, I'd like a more elaborate sorting activity, customizable drag and drop activity, game options such as crosswords, options that allow user response, and more variety in the quizzing and assessment.
  • The built-in branching scenario feature requires a bit of trial and error. I'd like to see a snapshot, at-a-glance view of the scenario so it easier to see where the branching is, or where its missing.
  • The built-in assessment features are pretty limited - the Knowledge Check block has only multiple choice, multiple response, fill in the blank and basic matching. There is the option to pull in a test bank which is great, but it would be great to have more options built-in without having to develop something more elaborate in Storyline.
  • Quick and easy development of responsive, mobile-friendly elearning
  • Ability to customize branding and layouts
  • Ability to allow content reviewers to view work in-progress and leave feedback for easy revisions
  • We've been able to provide compliance training on topics such as personal safety, food safety, HIPPA, sexual harassment & workplace bullying, and active shooter to all of our associates (3400+) for the first time in the company's history without having to outsource all of the work to contractors, saving the business countless dollars.
  • The benefits are difficult to quantify, however this is the first time my company (a retail food business) has ever been able to deliver basic food safety training to every associate in our stores - whether they are bagging groceries or stocking produce or slicing meats. This ensures that a baseline level of knowledge is provided for every food handler at our business.

Would you buy Articulate 360 again?

Yes

Articulate 360 is great for one-person teams where rapid development is needed, as well as bigger teams and projects as it allows for easy sharing, content reviews and quick edits. One of the best features is the pre-built templates that can be modified easily, including some that actually contain real, usable content as is. We haven't used these (yet) at my company but it's only because I haven't had a chance to showcase them to others since they became available.
