Upgrading from Studio ’09 to Storyline
Some people have been asking whether you can upgrade from Articulate Studio ’09 to Articulate Storyline, so we decided to post on the topic for everyone’s benefit.
We’re sorry, but there’s no upgrade path from Studio ’09 to Storyline because they’re two distinct products. This Storyline vs. Studio page can help you decide which is right for you, and this Studio ’12 preview will give you a sense of what to expect in our next release of Studio.
The good news is that we’re offering some nice incentives to folks who have Studio ’09 and also want to buy Storyline.
First, all Studio ’09 customers who buy Storyline get a bundle of eight photographic characters (valued at $2,392) at no cost. Each high-resolution character pack in the bundle includes 140+ poses, plus torso and headshots, so you’ll have a total of 1100+ poses. These characters are a terrific way to add variety and realism to a course without hunting (or paying) for art online.
Second, if you’re on the Platinum Membership Plan with your Studio ’09 license, you can convert your remaining Studio PMP term to Storyline. This will save you money on your Storyline license. Your Articulate rep can help you with the details. If you don’t know who your rep is, please contact us and we’ll let you know right away.
Note that you can easily import Presenter ’09, Quizmaker ’09, and Engage ’09 content into Storyline, helping protect your investment in Studio ’09.
Hope this provides the information you need. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
