Adobe Captivate Prime

We utilize Captivate to make learning modules that walk a client through particular assignments, or show to them another arrangement or strategy. It is also appropriate for making content that requires collaboration, or showing off what the client has realized. I believe that it tends to be utilized for anything that you utilize PowerPoint for, and upgrades your introduction both inside and out

Articulate Storyline

Articulate Storyline is very well suited for customer service type training or other sort of flashy demonstrations as it offers a lot of human character options and interactivity features. We use Storyline for our more technical training, however we only utilize about 20% of the program's features because the characters or animations are quite out of place in our modules. We need a much more academic look and feel in our material.

  • I can set up client parts and authorizations at six unique levels, including Learner.
  • I can set up outside clients, i.e. those outside my association, and send each of them a connection to give them a chance to set up their own login and secret key, sparing me a considerable measure of time and guaranteeing more noteworthy security.
  • Prime gives me a chance to set up sets of abilities for students to accomplish, and attach them to learning goals.
  • I can transfer courses, recordings, PowerPoints, PDF documents, and quickly and easily utilizing Prime's Fluidic Player.

  • Articulate Storyline 2 is as interactive as you need it to be for your learners.
  • Being able to devise eLearning that tests understanding in a more refreshing way, other than a standard quiz, is welcomed by our learners.
  • The support network available for Articulate is amazing. There is so much support out there nothing is impossible.
  • Variety is a big thing with Storyline 2. No module looks the same, unless you want it to.

  • Layers and triggers can be a bit tricky to get your head round at first but with practice you soon get the hang of it. As stated, it does take time and you may not get it right at first. It's a matter of trial and error.
  • Figuring out how the eLearning modules produced on Storyline interact with the LMS can prove challenging from a a reporting perspective. Ensuring the right settings are in place is important but you need to know the right settings to start with.
  • Overcoming software issues where learners have older software or have popup blockers enabled. This has proved problematic with users who are not confident with technology.

First off, Articulate doesn't require a contract for their software so this question is immediately mute.I've had nothing but an amazing experience using all of Articulate's software in both my past and current position, I couldn't fathom recommending another tool, to be completely honest. It's caused no headaches or frustration that couldn't be immediately resolved using the eLearning Heroes community. There's really no other option in my book.

It does what we need it to. We create computer based learning and occasionally have someone use the tool via a tablet. It works great for that! If you were going to use it on a smartphone, I am not sure it would be the best choice. Since most formal eLearning courses are better suited to a larger screen then I would rate it highly every time.

The online community and the folks at Articulate are both incredibly helpful. Many possible questions do not even need to be asked, as the answers can already be found in the "E-Learning Heroes" community that supports the products and their users. This includes lots of examples, free content, and "show me how X is done" tutorials.

I love the fact that both a demonstration AND text version of the tutorials are available. Our firewall was blocking the demos until I requested my company allow them! Having the text version available still enabled me to learn from the tutorials. They are very well done and informative, and there is a tutorial for just about anything you need to learn to do with Storyline. I have always been more than satisfied with the support and training available to us for all Articulate products and I love the community!

Alternatives Considered

Captivate Prime is more strong than PowerPoint and has a bigger number of assets accessible than Storyline. The client network for Captivate Prime is doing some inventive and exceptional things. I think that its simple to discover individuals who have either done or are doing what I am endeavoring to do, and they are largely more than willing to give guidance when it is required.

Atriculate Storyline is much more user friendly compared to Captivate. It is simlar in some ways but personally I found Captivate more clunky and less forgiving. There is also more of a community, from what I have found so far for Articulate. Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough but since finding and using Articulate I haven't looked back. By no means do I pretend to be an expert but from my experience it feels like you have to be an expert in PowerPoint to really get the full benefit of Captivate, whereas Articulate Storlyline does not require this. You can find your way round things and call on others for support due to the community available.

It is easy to train new users and manage content. Being able to import older projects and PPT files makes it very easy to use for a lot of "moonlighters" in our department.
