Introduction to Articulate Storyline 2 Training: Reviews From Our Students

“The Articulate Storyline training class allows a beginner like myself to walk out of training with the tools necessary to start creating courses in Storyline.” -Erik F.

“I had a great experience learning the ins and outs of Storyline. The online presenter was extremely helpful and made sure no one fell behind and answered every question that was brought to his attention.” – Willy P. EMC (online live student)

“The instructor was great. The course files were fantastic, he was knowledgeable about both design, programming, and usability/accessibility issues, which really makes this Storyline training much better than the Lynda training, even before you add in the interactivity/synchronicity. He also adapted to our group which was moving faster through the content than he expected, so we got to cover some extra stuff.” – Lindsey S. – Northeastern University (online live student)

“A wonderful ThinkBig class experience with a knowledgable, fun and enthusiastic trainer!” – Alyssa F. – Northeastern University (online live student)

“The Articulate Storyline training course closes the gap between designer developer training experience and the practical building tools needed to produce the blended learning opportunities we plan of offer.” – Ruben I. – Department of Transportation

“Cheryl was a great instructor. I learned a lot during the 2-day Articulate Storyline training class. I left the class feeling ready to start working on my projects.” – Kanika P. – ISAC

“The online Articulate Storyline classes were very convenient and interactive. Even though I was miles away, I felt as if in the classroom with the others. I would recommend it for anyone that does not have the chance to assist them in person.” – Camyla F. – International Labour Organization

“This Storyline training was extremely helpful. Fabulous instructor.” -Dianne P. – Venable, LLC

“I’m grateful for the skilled and patient instructor who knows how to teach to varying comfort levels. I always look forward to classes here and recommend ThinkBIGLearnSmart to co-workers.” – Carole M. – FDA

“I attended the Storyline class virtually and it was just like I was in the class. Great experience!” – Anita C. – Office of the Comptroller of the Currency

“Cheryl, the instructor, was wonderful. The whole experience was a positive one. Think Big creates a great experience for the learner.” – Nicole P. – Springfield Hospital Center

“Cheryl was terrific! Very knowledgeable, approachable – able to teach to all levels of learners.” – Susan B., Springfield Hospital Center

“Cheryl was fantastic, class had great pace and we learned a ton in just two days. Would definitely take another course here!” – Michael B. – U.S. Department of State

“The level of training through ThinkBig Learn Smart was excellent. The instructor balanced the needs of the online and in-person students well, and the course was well paced throughout both training days.” – Eliza M. – MicroSystems Automation Group

“I feel that after taking the Articulate Storyline training class, I will be able to successfully create an e-learning course with minimal help. Cheryl was an excellent technical instructor. She provided us with context – not just “click here, click there” – along with practical examples that we practiced that we can use for our e-learning development. She had a great sense of humor and high energy – and was flexible to modify our activities according to the needs of the learners. She was very organized during the 2-days and paced the class well; she covered what she needed to cover – rather than rushing at the end to make up for lost time.” – Debra F. – NOAA

“The entire THINKBIGLEARNSMART experience has been exceptional! From your speedy follow up to [the] course [itself], the process was seamless and truly customer focused. You guys did an amazing job!” – Christel C. T.

“This was one of the best training classes I have attended. [Interaction] with the instruction was excellent, her knowledge of the product was great and her delivery was outstanding.” -Veronia S.

This was by far the best training I have attended in a long time. Information that I can use tomorrow at work that will deeply impact our work! THANK YOU!” Lane M. (Livanta LLC)

The introduction to Articulate Storyline class was a great start to learning the software. The class was a good way to quiet the concerns of the software being overwhelming, although there is a great deal to learn. I feel confident that I will do well creating small projects. As my skill set grows, so will my projects.” Brenda H. (University of Michigan)

An excellent class (Storyline2 Intro) with an excellent instructor (Mark Snyder)! Thanks much.” Bette B. (Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service)

This was an outstanding hands on experience to learn a tool as we used it. The instructor was knowledgeable and responsive to feedback. We had fun while learning more than I can even express. I would highly recommend this course to others who are new to Storyline 2.” Angela G. (BTG Works)

Robert was an excellent facilitator. I knew absolutely nothing about Articulate (Storyline) and now I feel that I have a handle on beginning. He stopped to answer questions and was able to manage a group of novice and a group that has a bit of experience without making anyone feel as if they were waiting or to slow down the class.” Sabrina P. (BTG Works)
