Are You Interested in Local Articulate User Groups?

Hey gang,

I'm looking to gauge level of interest in starting some local Articulate user groups; I mean interest in terms of attending, participating, and/or hosting these groups.

A user group is a gathering of people with a shared interest, in this case, Articulate software. These would be fun, casual, and informal get-togethers that allow people to network with other Articulate and e-learning professionals, learn new things, and share cool discoveries or projects they've created.

Let me know if you're interested in this idea and what city you'd like to see the user groups in by leaving a comment below.

Hello John,


I'm also in the Chicago area (near north burbs).  Used to go to the "Chicago Instructional Design, E-Learning and Training Meetup" in the city that met at a nice space at Columbia College on S. Mich. Ave.


The organizer recently announced he's moving from the Chicago area, and is not leading the group anymore.  (He did indicate he wants someone else to take it over, in case you are interested. Maybe you could piggyback off of that meetup group as it has a decent amount of members already). 


In any case, I'm looking for an E-learning / Instructional Design meetup group to attend as well.


Just saw your previous message here, and that's good news that Articulate is considering starting one too.  Please keep me in the loop on that if/when it's started.


I feel an in-person group would be better, though feel free to let me know if you plan to kick off a group meeting remotely as well.  Please feel free to add me to the mailing list:




EDIT:  Just editing my post to indicate I've found the Articulate User Group meetup for Chicago, in case any one else is interested too:

Atlanta people. I know this post has been out there for a long time but the time has come to get together. We have just opened a new training center in Acworth along 92. We are just off I-75 on exit 277 about a mile east. 

We would like to get a User group started in January. Please let me know if you would like to be part of this group and good days and times to meet.

I just noticed this thread. I’m not sure if someone has already started an Articulate Users Meetup group for the Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding area but I just started a meetup for this. If one already exists near Atlanta, please let me know.  Here’s the link.

Hi everyone,

I partnered with the Heart of Central Illinois Chapter of ATD to start a new Storyline Special Interest Group. We'll have our first meeting in Champaign, IL on Thursday, September 12 from 1-4pm. This is a completely free event and all experience levels are welcome to come. We would love to have anyone from the Chicago and/or Indy area come if you're willing to make the drive.
