Overall Satisfaction with Articulate Storyline

In a multi-state healthcare organization, eLearning is essential for training and compliance needs. Frequent updates to the electronic health records software demand quick turnaround of technical information and interactive practice; medical standards and guidelines must be communicated to clinical professionals in accessible and engaging ways; HIPAA and OSHA regulations require annual review. Staff can complete these requirements as their busy schedules allow.
  • Articulate Storyline allows video screen capture! This is essential when providing training modules about updated Electronic Health Records software.
  • Articulate Storyline allows non-programmers (like me) to use elegant tools for complex design elements; variables and states allow branching logic and easy design of custom interactions.
  • Although the link to product and community help is excellent, in my ideal world, context-sensitive help would be accessible within the program.
  • Graphical editing (as recommended by Articulate experts within PowerPoint) would be nice within Storyline itself.
  • Tiny picky thing - In Story View, I would like to be able to reorder and renumber scenes.
  • Some content imported from Articulate Presenter - interactions and quizzes need significant design tweaking.
  • This product has allowed us to minimize in-person training and associated travel and loss of work time over four states, resulting in substantial ROI.
Since the Articulate products are all I've used, the only questions I would ask would be to differentiate between choosing Presenter and Storyline. If the user is comfortable with learning new tools, Storyline is the best choice in my opinion. However, if their primary training mode has been in using PowerPoint, the Presenter would be an ideal transition to eLearning instructional design.
