Adobe Captivate Prime

Adobe Captivate Prime is a great Learning Management System for bigger companies. All lessons and courses are stored in the cloud, and can be easily accessible by any department in the company. It has been very helpful by having employees take these lessons and completing them on time. Lessons are more interactive, so employees get these done in no time.

Articulate Studio is constantly surprising in terms of what it can do. It is like a "Swiss Army Knife" of functionality. I've used it to build portfolios, whole interactive websites, authoring videos and I often discover novel ways to make it useful on a pretty regular basis. What would be a situation where you would not want to use Articulate Studio? Well, even though you can use it to author video and to publish websites, it's not a replacement for a video editing package or a web platform like WordPress, but there are times when it will do certain things in an astoundingly simple way superior to other tools.

Pros

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • Adobe Captivate Prime offers a social learning system where all my employees can interact, share learning material, and send or receive informational materials among the same employees. This social area allows my employees to interact and share ideas about the new things they are learning. It is impressive to know that this platform not only focuses on teaching beneficial material for learning but also provides an area where a workgroup can interact, communicate, and share ideas about what they have learned.
  • Adobe Captivate Prime has an artificial intelligence system capable of producing really useful material depending on the area of ​​the company that is using it. In addition, this artificial intelligence system gives the user the opportunity to choose which topics they would like to learn, and it provides very useful material, courses, books, and many other things that interest the user and that can be truly organic learning. This artificial intelligence allows our team to get beneficial material about the real estate area without making much effort.
  • The real-time monitoring system allows us to be attentive to the learning that our clients are having. Adobe Captivate Prime collects valuable information that helps us understand what information our customers have learned so we can see how effective our customer retention strategy has been.

  • They made it very easy to understand how to add new content to the courses, including images, videos or audio, of course, you are still able to do text-based content as well.
  • Creating quizzes has never been easier. The ability to add controls to each question and what actions each answer creates, whether an additional question or passing to the next section. Customizing these actions are very easy to learn and add to your course.
  • Being able to use your own scoring mechanism is awesome! I like SCORM but there are many options to use including a custom one of your own. This ability allows you to pass your students over to a proprietary system that enrolls them in the next course, or use the built-in utilities to provide the next course or quiz, the choice is yours!

Cons

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • Adobe Connect has the sidebar present to be used for hearing impaired compliance, however, the fluidic player does not have this capability.
  • Would also like to see more flexibility in using alternative logon rather than email, so better integration with our system to allow using a different identifier - i.e. employee number.

  • The audio editor is awful. Sometimes when you cut a section, it actually takes a different section that you selected. Especially when in zoom mode. You have to then undo the action, and re-do. Also, scrubbing through the audio is difficult. If you're exporting audio, it can glitch during the process. I avoid using the audio editor whenever I can.
  • After all these years, it's still a buggy program. You can be doing your recordings, and a sudden message appears saying that something went wrong and needs to close. I've done re-installs, contacted support, and I constantly clear the temp folder. Still happens. Also, it's a good idea to export your audio, and there have been times the program freezes up on me, and the audio file (in the .ppta file) gets corrupted and all audio is permanently lost.
  • The program can get slow when publishing, previewing or opening the audio editor.
  • The included Engage program is pretty good, but it needs more customization options. And I think they can add more modules that provide a little more engagement.

Currently, our company uses this program and another competitor for our learning management software. We like the adaptability of this program and appreciate the customer service that Adobe provides, however the other program is starting to turn out to be a better value for our company as they improve their compatibility.

Reporting is a HUGE factor in any LMS. We also have some complex courses we built in Captivate and loaded to Captivate Prime. Captivate Prime often times does not accurately report the scores. Therefore, I have spent a great deal of time trying to get the scores to compute.

This is very useable software even for novice eLearning authoring users. People with some PowerPoint experience should be fine with this software and even Excel!

On a few occasions, I've logged in to issue a test to a staff member and my course would just spin. I've had to reschedule several test attempts due to this. In my opinion, the issue was not resolved by Adobe

The performance of Adobe Captivate Prime is also extremely good. The user interface is fast and easy to load. The complexity is not nearly as bad as some of the other programs on the market. Speed was not impacted.

I think they have a competent, friendly and "resolving" team. I have only ever been met with a willingness to assist any and every query I have come across. Roy who is one of the technical people is amazing, and so is my Customer Success Manager, Hema! I do not know what I would do without them.

I've never really had any major issues with the product (Other than the registration loop error)and my ten out of ten rating is based on the assistance I got when we initially set up the extension in Power Point. I found the support folks to be professional, helpful and friendly

Unfortunately, I was not a part of the implementation of Adobe Captivate Prime learning management software in our company, but I was present after its implementation. From what others tell me, the implementation of the product was fine and there were only a few issues that primarily focused on internal communication errors about what we would use the product for

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate Prime

We have a running history using Adobe with no issues at all, so we decided to go with that brand over others. Also due to familiarity with the software itself, it was easier to stay with the similar brand.

We look at Captivate first, which Adobe oddly leaves out of its Creative Cloud suite, and I can see why it seems to be completely foreign in term of UI vs other Adobe products. The familiar PPT structure Captivate leverages is completely absent and the tools are much more rigid. Exporting was also more difficult - it's pretty night and day different. Captivate is AWFUL, especially for an Adobe product.

The product's overall scalability and flexibility is extremely good. I wish that the other products our company uses were this flexible! The product is easy to deploy across multiple departments and teams as needed.

Return on Investment

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • We are a small organization, so for now, we aren't quite sure if our ROI is working. But are confident in how this system will help us grow.
  • Our consumers have been truly delighted about the LMS and view us at a much more professional level now.
  • High level of security is very positive.
Zach Krenn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Articulate Studio

  • I only see positive impact since it is a very easy to use tool for rapid learning. The only point is to know what is possible to develop using this tool to avoid any kind of frustration afterwards.
  • Another positive impact is that we don't need a diversified development team. There is no need of technical professionals, and a creative instructional designer is enough to develop effective learning content using Studio.
  • The third positive impact is that Studio makes possible to realize short-term projects, mainly when there's already a PowerPoint presentation.
