Adobe Captivate Prime

It is really well suited as an internally facing LMS where you have repeating content that you simple run new groups of folks through. Scenarios that do not require any social learning and you have the resources to create any interactive elements in external tools. If you need to use it for external participants we found we need to start coming up with workaround solutions to a number of our problems. We found ways to use the system but it wasn't really working for us as it was intended.

Thinkific is well suited to small organizations that don't have the time or skill to make a beautiful course website from scratch. It's great for start-ups and soloprenuers who want to get their message out to the world and present it professionally. It's also great for creating excellent lead magnets.

Pros

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • Support - Adobe's support is absolutely fantastic. There is no issue that I have had that hasn't been dealt with quickly, professionally and seriously. Our Customer Success Manager is amazing too and just compliments the support one gets.
  • Analytics - Captivate Prime is an LMS which can be both simple and complex, allowing each user to get something from the system. The reporting and analytics are brilliant in drilling down to the actual day to minute performance stats for each learner.

Thinkific

  • Promote individual courses on your website by embedding widgets

Cons

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • The administration is somewhat costly as it depends on the quantity of clients and does exclude a level expense for a set number as given by different administrations
  • Can't utilize intelligent substance for work helps
  • The setup procedure was long and somewhat dreary, however it was fundamental, they assisted with all the preparation.

  • When viewing your content as a student, it does not provide easy navigation back to the Creator Dashboard which is not necessarily the most intuitive navigation for the creator.
  • With the basic plan, you don't have the ability to allow students to have a monthly payment option for purchase. For this feature, you must upgrade. I think it should be part of the basic plan.
  • I'm not a fan of their affiliate interface. It is not very robust. I actually purchased this software originally because they included an affiliate dashboard within the system making it easier to convert students into affiliates, but I quickly realized that it was not robust enough for my needs.

We will continue to use Thinkific for our company pieces of training. Until we are able to create our own in house portal, this is an excellent source to have a learning management software tool that is easy to use and easy to implement without much technical training to administer

Out of the box, Thinkific is very user-friendly. Though if you want more customizations, you do have to understand some code.

I've never had any issues with accessing Thinkific but I can see when it has been a problem for others. When I get updates on when they are doing maintenance to their platform I tend to make sure that is not the day I plan to be working on my school so as not to get frustrated

When it comes to the performance of Thinkific for me I find that it's good but could be better. I tend to think that the larger the files and videos you upload on your courses may add to the impact of it's uploading (not sure if that's actually true or not). But overall the performance of Thinkific via my tablet and desktop is very good when I have a fast speed broadband speed

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.

We haven't needed to contact support as their knowledge base provided all the answers to our questions. The majority of the platform was intuitive and easy to use and navigate, so that is why we have given it a high support score. We didn't even need to contact support when we were integrating with our gamification engine.

The implementation period took time like it would in earning and using any new tool. It was more about being organised, having better time management processes in place and having people you were able to reach out to if you were every able stuck. The other key ting with the implementation period was giving yourself a realistic time scale to get the job completed.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate Prime

We chose Adobe because it was cheaper and fit our needs more than Benchpress. We also chose Adobe because the over all appearance and quality seemed worth the extra money our partners would be paying for the professional learning opportunities hosted in the LMS. Finally, we chose Adobe because of its brand recognition; however, we were poorly mistaken in many cases.
James R. Cutlip | TrustRadius Reviewer

Thinkific

We chose Thinkific because of its price point and financial structure, the ability to customize it to suit our needs, the range of features it had, and also the look/feel of the course experience itself.

The opportunities to scale your online course business with Thinkific is endless. They provide a great range of plans with features, integrations and support to suit the needs of any business as different levels. The key here is knowing where to start with the budget you have and then knowing when it's time to scale up and the tools and resources it will require.

Return on Investment

Adobe Captivate Prime

  • So far I have used Captivate mainly for internal processes and training, so there has not been a true ROI.
  • I will continue to use captivate, and search for additional areas to implement the software into a sales / client facing platform.
Dylan Seagraves | TrustRadius Reviewer

Thinkific

  • Ability to attract leads with a FREE membership library option
  • Ability to quickly and easily deliver course content without much of a learning curve for course creators
  • If you need affiliates to help sell your product, even though they advertise that they have the option for affiliates, if you want to do it right you must use an additional integration for affiliate software.
