Rise Courses vs Storyline Courses

Articulate gives us two choices for authoring your e-learning course: Rise 360 and Storyline. They each offer a variety of options and features that you’ll want to consider when deciding what type of course to make. 

Rise 360 Benefits

Articulate Rise 360 allows for faster development, thereby cutting the cost to create your course. Its design features a scrolling lesson vs the horizontal progressing slides in Storyline. If a seamless mobile experience is important to you, Rise courses are responsive and automatically adapts to different screen sizes, whereas Storyline is restricted to its slide dimensions.

Storyline Benefits

Storyline does offer more customization capabilities and extensive interactivity. It can also be used for software simulation activities. One way to get the best of both worlds is to important Storyline elements into Rise with the block import feature.
