NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2016 /CNW/ -- Articulate® today released Articulate 360, a brand-new subscription offering that gives e-learning developers everything they need for every aspect of course development. With a single subscription to Articulate 360, course creators will get apps, content, and services that make it easier to create multi-device e-learning, source high-quality course assets, collaborate with stakeholders, and grow their e-learning development skills. Articulate 360 includes the all-new Rise, a groundbreaking app for creating gorgeous, inherently responsive courses.
"For more than a decade, Articulate has forged deep relationships with customers by delivering on our promise to simplify e-learning authoring," says Adam Schwartz, Founder and CEO of Articulate. "We're taking our commitment even further by addressing all aspects of course development with Articulate 360. Finally, course developers will have what they need throughout the project lifecycle to complete projects faster, build higher quality e-learning with less budget, and create truly exceptional learning experiences in an increasingly mobile world."
Create Courses for Every Device with Articulate 360 Authoring Apps
Articulate 360 gives e-learning developers all the tools they need for every type of project. It includes eight e-learning authoring apps that produce content that works on every smartphone, tablet, and desktop device—automatically.
The revolutionary new app Rise reimagines responsive course authoring the way it should be: web-based and easy. Designed with mobile in mind, Rise takes advantage of responsive web technology to adapt lessons dynamically to every device size, browser, and orientation. Course authors simply add text and media to seven pre-built lesson types or create custom lessons from modular learning blocks they can stack in endless combinations. Rise does the rest, delivering stunning experiences to every device learners might use. "Rise just raised the bar and set the standard for mobile e-learning development," says e-learning developer Jeff Kortenbosch. "Rise is what we've all been waiting for."
Award-winning Storyline 360 has been updated with a new responsive player and more than 20 other features that make it even easier to create custom, highly interactive courses for every device. All three Studio 360 apps also include the new responsive player, along with more than 25 new features that enhance PowerPoint-based course development.
"I absolutely love what Articulate did with Storyline 360 and Studio 360," notes Sean Tenney, a lead training producer. "Everything I could have asked for."
Course authors will also have three ways to create training videos with Articulate 360. Replay 360 makes it simple to create and edit videos that include screencasts and webcam mixes. Peek is a simple screencasting tool for quickly capturing screencasts on Mac and PC computers. And the Preso iPad app makes it fun and easy to create informal training videos from images and PDF slide decks.
"Articulate 360 is overwhelmingly impressive! Having a suite of tools all in one place will save oodles of time for project development," says Kevin Thorn, an e-learning developer and longtime Articulate customer.
Source Pro-Designed Assets at No Additional Cost with Content Library
Articulate 360 also includes Content Library, an ever-expanding library of course templates and images that will help course developers create professional-looking courses faster. It includes hundreds of ready-to-go, professionally designed templates with all the layouts course developers need to create an effective course. Content Library also includes more than 100,000 combinations of photographic and illustrated characters, expressions, and poses that course creators can use to build personal connection with learners and craft realistic scenarios.
"I love Content Library," says e-learning designer Alison Woodage. "Great diversity of the photographic characters. The templates are fantastic. It will help us all create much more professional looking courses."
Speed Up Collaboration with Articulate Review
Customers will also get Articulate Review with an Articulate 360 subscription. Articulate Review is an intuitive new web app that simplifies and speeds project reviews. It lets subject matter matter experts (SMEs) and other stakeholders view course content online and provide in-context feedback. Course authors get consolidated feedback from all stakeholders in one place, making it easy to keep everyone on the same page. And because Articulate Review takes a screenshot at the moment a reviewer makes a comment, course authors will see exactly what reviewers saw, reducing misunderstandings.
"I love, love, love Articulate Review," gushes Veronica Budnikas, an e-learning specialist. "Getting your course or video out there for review used to involve formatting Word documents or creating review documents. Now, it's so easy!"
Grow E-Learning Skills with Articulate Live Webinars
Articulate 360 subscribers will also be able to take their skills to the next level with access to Articulate Live, exclusive live webinars with e-learning gurus such as Tom Kuhlmann. In these webinars, customers can get help with Articulate 360, learn instructional design best practices, and ask questions to get real-time assistance with their challenges.
