What are the best books for learning Articulate?

Jul 03, 2014

I am starting a job in which I will be using Articulate.  I have only used Captivate, and I have never used Articulate.  Can you recommend some books that would help me learn this program.

Hi Sharon,

Not sure which product you want to learn, however, if you are happy to work from an online source, if you work you way through the appropriate tutorials - http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/default.aspx , you will pretty much have all you would ever need.

Anything else, just shout on the forums.

Welcome aboard.

Hi, Sharron:

There's also Stephanie Harnett's Learning Storyline, if you are looking for additional books. Also, as Sherrie mentioned, on lynda.com there are a few courses specific to Articulate:

Up and Running with Storyline

Storyline Advanced Techniques

Up and Running with Studio 13

Studio 13 Advanced Techniques (should release in September)

The latter three by yours truly. Hope that helps.

You know it's simply not helpful to be directed to a page with random articles.  As in instructional designer, I am trying to build a course.  I'm new to Articulate.  When I want to learn how to do something, I would love to be able to go to a directory, find the lesson, and then follow step by step instructions on how to do this.  The randomness of where these lessons are planted in this website is maddening for a new user. Unless I'm missing something...please show me where this directory lives.

Hello Sharon,

Here is some suggestion for you:

Design for How People Learn (recently updated with 3 new chapters)

ISD From the Ground Up: A No-Nonsense Approach to Instructional Design

Understanding by Design

E-Learning Fundamentals: A Practical Guide

Michael Allen’s books. I recommend starting with one from his E-Learning Library series.
