  • Great comparison Diane and Desirée! Well laid out and for folks not so familiar with Storyline, Captivate or Lectora this is very informative. Oh a table for comparison of what you said would make a valuable infographic to accompany your podcast. Thank you!

    Dankeschön from Germany to this comparison. I am a newbie and my choice will be storyline. Oh and since we already have the image of being more honest than polite: may I wish for a better soundquality in your next podcast ? Dankeschön again for helping me to make a choice. Will stick around.

  • Storyline comes with a bunch of default interactions that act like the Engage interactions, but at mobile compatible.

  • Is there a difference between articulate and storyline? If so, please advise

      Articulate is the name of the company. They have two products: Studio and Storyline. Studio has been out for years and is a suite of products (Presenter, Quizmaker, and Engage). Because it was their only product for years, people just called it Articulate. So when Storyline came around, it has caused some confusion. I find a lot of people say “Articulate” when they mean “Articulate Studio.” Does that help?
