Storyline has a friendly and very usable interface and if you have ever used PowerPoint (or similar) then you will be able to use Storyline, really.

It has some with great digital assets – e.g. characters and variations of these, can produce ‘interactions’ without you entering a single line of code, has screen recording, and can publish as HTML5 which is perfect for mobile delivery of e-learning.

It’s not cheap, but it is good, and there is a vibrant and helpful community of users that will help you get the most from this best-in-class product 🙂

From the Articulate site:

    It’s really powerful, but too expensive for many people. Interesting that Lessons in Moodle can do very similar things 🙂
