April All-Day Workshop

Authoring Tools Test-Drive
Adobe Captivate vs. Articulate Storyline

Diane Elkins

Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline? Which is the tool for you? Both tools have great features and raving fans. Both tools also have “quirks” and critics. So how do you decide? By trying it out for yourself!  In this one-day hands-on overview, you’ll get a chance to try out both tools and decide for yourself which is a better fit. 

Will you walk away an expert in either tool? Not at all.  But you’ll have a valuable first-hand perspective about what it’s really like to work in the tools. You’ll be able to make better decisions about your tool choice, rather than just relying on marketing data or an article here and there.

Diane Elkins, author of E‑Learning Uncovered, has built a reputation as a national e‑learning expert by being a frequent speaker at major industry events such as ATD ICE, ATD TechKnowledge, DevLearn, and Learning Solutions.
