The Logical Blog by IconLogic

A recent LinkedIn post asked eLearning developers: which tool is best: Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline? As  As I read through the comments, I was struck by how many people insisted that Storyline was the better choice because it was easier to learn than Captivate because it was so much like Microsoft PowerPoint.   As someone who uses both Captivate and Storyline, I have to disagree with that recurring sentiment.
