It is no secret that I’ve been having a love affair with Articulate Storyline 2 for the past couple of years, so I thought I would share my top 5 reasons why I love this product! The only way I could love it any more than I already do is if it were to come to my house and make me coffee each morning.
#1 – The Efficiency
Storyline 2 allows me to enhance my overall workflow efficiency by making life easy. I can streamline my development using scenes and with all of the built-in functionality, I seldom need to go outside of Storyline to create additional assets (e.g. screen recordings, audio narration, etc.).
#2 – The Customizable Interface
Storyline 2 allows me to customize my development interface by providing the ability to dock/undock panel, save and use templates, and add commonly used functions to the quick access bar. Such functionality goes a long way in helping me streamline my development.
#3 – The Options
#4 – The Support
Nothing, in my experience, has compared to the customer service and outstanding support of the Articulate team. Everyone I’ve interacted with has gone above and beyond to ensure that responses are dealt with expediently, support issues are resolved quickly, and that my overall product experience is beyond pleasant. The added support of the E-Learning Heroes Community, with Articulate staff and community members is amazing, and makes a huge difference when it comes to product support, sharing ideas, receiving/giving constructive criticism, and promotion (seriously – if you’re not part of the community, get on it!).
#5 – The Learning Experience
There is always something new to learn! With all of the functions built-in to Storyline 2, it seems as though there are endless possibilities when it comes to combining elements to create new types of interactions. This allows me to learn and share new information with community members and my blog audience!
Storyline makes for a wonderful muse – I loved writing Articulate Storyline Essentials, and I’m just about finished with Mastering Articulate Storyline, so please stay tuned for that – I pull some amazing examples shared by community members and provide many pages of my own Storyline antidotes to help you harness the power of Storyline 2 and truly take your e-learning development to the next level!
