At the time of writing, I am over 10 months into an Instructional Design contract with a major New Zealand Government department (Accident Compensation Corporation) in a role that was heavily focused for the first 6 months on using Articulate Storyline to develop eLearning modules for use in their Totara LMS. I was hired despite the fact that I had never used Articulate before - something the people hiring me were aware of and not concerned about, given my background and experience.
The article is about using Articulate Storyline daily over those initial 6 months and on an ongoing occasional basis; of how easy it was to learn, create content and effective interactions; to produce dynamic HTML5 accessible resources...and to sometimes wish for more. It's also about my experience in relation to interaction and involvement with Articulate and its community website.
I confess that the very first thing that came to me when writing this article was the title. Now that I see the length of the article I have written (to be delivered in two parts) there's an unintended double meaning to the phrase "there's a lot to be said". But the title came about early on, because I can sum up my opinion of Storyline and what I want to discuss in this article in one word…Simplicity.
But simplicity in this instance is a double-edged sword.
