Overall Satisfaction with Articulate Storyline

I've been using Storyline since a few months after it was introduced. It is the eLearning development tool we use 90% of the time. I've found it easy to use and it lets me create almost any interaction I can imagine.

It helps us create eLearning courses quickly with an amazing amount of learning interaction. I especially appreciate the fact that I have had very few issues with it and when I do, Articulate usually has an answer and a workaround.
  • Enables you to create complex interactions using states, triggers, variables, and layers.
  • Provides excellent tutorials, free templates, blogs, and more via the Articulate Community.
  • Excellent customer support.
  • I'd like to see more animation options. I'm spoiled by the variety in PowerPoint and would love more of that type of animation.
  • I'd like to have the capability to show the Notes for each layer in the Notes tab. Now we have to put the Notes for the main layer and all other layers into one and that confuses learners.
  • Decreased development time.
  • Easier revisions.
  • Very happy clients.
  • Captivate
Captivate constantly had issues that required hours to troubleshoot. That rarely happens with Storyline. We haven't used Captivate after Captivate 7 because the interactions were so clunky to use - you couldn't even format text with bullets and are limited in the type of interactions; I can create almost anything in Storyline. Also, using and duplicating variables was pain in the neck.
None that I can think of. It's so customizable, you can do almost anything.
