There are dozens of new features. Check them out on the Storyline 2 What’s New page.
We've designed the user interface and features in Storyline 2 to be incredibly intuitive and familiar. You can start creating courses in Storyline right away, without training.
The Articulate Studio Pro suite is the fastest, easiest way to create presentation-based e-learning. It’s ideal for people who want to quickly transform PowerPoint slides into an online course. With Articulate Presenter, it’s simple to create content in PowerPoint, add form-based interactions with Articulate Engage, quickly build assessments with Articulate Quizmaker, and easily create videos with Articulate Replay.
Articulate Storyline is designed for people who want to easily create interactive e-learning courses and content. Only Articulate Storyline has slide layers, triggers, and states—the features that let you create any type of interactivity you can imagine without programming. We’ve focused on making Articulate Storyline easy yet powerful, so that it grows with you.
