Storyline vs. PowerPoint?
I work for a company that heavily uses PowerPoint to build training courses and form presentations. We are investigating switching over to Storyline. Before we make the switch, we have some of questions.
1-Most people on this forum claim Storyline is intuitive, but based on my own experience I disagree. I didn't feel like I could create presentations that were more advanced than basic power points. I have yet to watch any tutorials because I wanted to test the theory of Storyline's self explanatory set up. An example of some things I struggled with are the layers and triggering. The layers and triggers were a bit of a pain to set up, and then they didn't work as I anticipated. If you believe it is intuitive, do you think it is easy to use after watching the tutorials or before watching them? Did you use other articulate products before storyline? Or do you think it's intuitive mainly because you don't have to write code to get animations?
2-What specifically makes Storyline better than PowerPoint? What capabilities does Storyline have that PowerPoint does not, and what capabilities does PowerPoint have that storyline doesn't? For anyone who made the switch directly from PowerPoint to Storyline, was it worth it and why? Was it difficult to adjust to Storyline?
3- Reading over the forums, almost all of the comments were positive and recommended the product. However, can anyone think of any drawbacks to the program?
