It's finally possible to run Articulate Storyline 360 on a Mac computers with the M1 chip.

The M1 chip is extremely fast and performs well, but how will it do with Articulate Storyline, a Windows-only application that isn't optimized for the M1 chip?

In this video, I show you exactly how to get Articulate Storyline up and running on your Mac device (either Macbook or Mac this video, I use the base M1 MacBook Air).

Once we get it up and running, I put Articulate Storyline 360 to the test to see how it performs with the MacBook's M1 chip.

We will see that there are some areas where it excels and some areas where it lags. I also identified some early workarounds that we can use to avoid the laggy bottlenecks and maximize the device's performance.

Check out the video to determine if an M1 Mac is right for you and see how to get Storyline up and running once you purchase.
