stupid question -screenr vs articulate

Jul 08, 2014

I have noticed that people use screenr- and not articulate storyline recording to do education- is the main reason that it can be shared and easier to use-. I am getting a client to use recording screens using articulate and it is really hard to see- let me know a good tutorial to show a client to just show video- not step by step mode

Hi Josephine,

I think it depends on how and where you want to share it. Screenr is easy in the sense that it's web based or has a desktop app you could use, it'll only record a whole video (not step by step) and then you are able to share the URL or use the embed code. Recording within Storyline or Replay would allow you to have the creation done right within the tool and then be able to export it out/publish it as an MP4 or using Storyline also insert it as a step by step recording. Replay is free with a Storyline license, so you may want to use that if only looking to record videos.

Hi Dani,

Storyline's screen recording feature will allow you to capture elements such as clicks, typing, user interaction and then insert that as a single video or automatically break it down into step by step slides that you could test the user on or allow them to try the same steps. You can read more about it here.  

Replay allows you to record your screen, but only as a single video. You could also layer more than one video or audio file, and transition between the two, including adding some overlay text such as the title of content or presenters name. This will publish as an MP4.  All the options dealing with Replay are outlined here.
