Overall: We switched from Captivate to Storyline and 360. I enjoy it alot more as it feels and looks more modern. The content they provide is above par and well worth it as it all comes together amazingly even when you switch them up. I would just like to see more timing options. Other than that I highly recommend this product.
Pros: My pros are: 1. Easy to understand and user friendly 2. Much smoother when playing back content 3. Allows for the addition of templates which can be downloaded at any time 4. Intergeates well with other software such as a LMS when using published files
Cons: I would like to see the option to allow more audio to be added. For example, if I have two images on the slide, I would like to be able to attach an audio file to either image and not just have one audio file. I would also like to see more timing options.
Overall: I am able to create engaging and interactive training content. Gone are the days of uploading a video recording or PowerPoint for my corporate learners. They get a condensed, to-the-point training that is meaningful and FUN.
Pros: This software has changed my life and the experience of the learners I develop content for. Articulate 360 gives options. Have an amazing idea and need to start from scratch? Storyline is the place to go. It is so easy to use and there are a ton of tutorials, suggestions, and examples in the community forums. The templates in Rise allow for quick development of modern, easy to navigate online training (and I have used them to present information as well). The Content library is AMAZING! From photos to illustrations and icons – you’ll find what you need. I no longer have to go to outside sources – everything I need is in the content library.
Cons: The only suggestion I have is regarding Rise. I love how easy it is to plug and play information but I would like to see just a little more flexibility with editing. If I want to change more of the look I will just use Storyline, but Rise has a nice feel to it and would just like to make small edits – like remove a line in one of the text formats (I think it’s statement A. There are workarounds, but more flexibility with design)>
What do you like best?
The whole 360 suite is fantastic. Storyline 360 is in my opinion, the best tool on the market. It’s easy, intuitive (PPT on steroids) and feature packed. Coming from a flash development background, I put it through its paces in terms of animation/interactions etc and I’m yet to find something I can’t make it do (with no need for any additional code!)
What do you dislike?
Sometimes it can crash and corrupt project files. Not often, but when it happens, it’s like the world has ended. Can be avoided by NEVER working on a file that isn’t saved locally and saving new versions. This is a little extra work but worth it.
What do you like best?
Articulate 360 is incredibly comprehensive from an eLearning authoring tool standpoint. They have SL 360 (excellent for creating interactive step-by-step guides to almost anything and also creating any type of interactive training or teaching), they have Rise (incredibly simple but just overall beautiful and sexy design, although a bit limiting), and a couple other things that I don’t use as much. They have built in stock photos that are pretty good, they have characters (illustrated and actual pictures) that have different expressions and gestures that can be customized on someone’s interaction or just depending on the slide, they have pretty much anything that PPT has, and they have somewhat easy to learn user interface (although lots of stuff hidden behind a couple clicks).
What do you dislike?
I wish it was simpler to make changes to many things. The exported player for one: it’s pretty complicated to learn how to change things about the frame (the player). They have plenty of guides and supporting materials and a great support team on their website, so it’s not too big of a deal to be honest.
I chose Storyline as our primary authoring tool at my previous company. The templates and straightforward approach to creating interactivity with layers with trigger was really a joy to develop with.
My favorite feature of storyline is the fact that it only been around 6-8 years. All of the examples, just-in-time support and troubleshooting you search for online are applicable to the current version (360) and can be implemented. Their online community is best in class.
As a freelancer, when work is light in for my elearning business (I also work FT and do webdev work) – the subscription price Of Storyline 360 is too much. I wish I could pay for a month only.https://www.softwareadvice.com/lms/articulate-360-profile/reviews/
