Overall Satisfaction with Articulate Storyline

We use Articulate Storyline for most of our online staff education across our whole organization. This program helps us publish cross-platform training in a selection of different coding conventions. It's flexibility with importing PowerPoints and its ability to import many different media types make it an ideal program to create a variety of online courses covering a vast array of subject matter for our organization.
  • Free stock library.
  • Multiple output options.
  • Multiple ready to use layout and design options.
  • Constantly updating and bugs being removed and added.
  • Large bugs appear occasionally and can completely stop your production.
  • Limited functionality in areas of animation and coding unless you know Javascript.
  • Quick SME to LMS turnaround.
  • Easy to use and helps us have multiple staff working on course development.
  • Multiple outputs help us publish the same content to different LMS.
This software has a steep learning curve and Storyline is miles ahead due to it being a lot like PowerPoint. It even imports PowerPoint presentations with ease. We've selected it for that reason, and with the new update, its large library of different assets. The only thing I truly feel Storyline is lacking in is its mobile response capabilities which I hope to be improved over time.
If you want a solid program that you can spin up courses for an LMS, that is easy to use for almost anyone, look no further. Be warned it can be limited in some areas, but after lots of use, you'll find ways around these limitations and great forums to help you achieve the look and functionality you're looking for.
