Adobe Captivate

Captivate is well suited for technical scenario activities. For example, software simulations where demonstration, practice, and assessment are necessary. Captivate does a very good job of creating simulation type activities compared to other solutions. Captivate also does very well with scoring on assessments. Whether you use clicks or questions to score, Captivate has a great ability to score both types. It is less suited for rapid eLearning development. If your company is looking for a solution to build more traditional eLearning such as click-through presentations with some interactivity and the ability to include multimedia elements, then another solution may be more appropriate. Captivate is a great tool for more advanced developers.

Docebo LMS

Docebo LMS is mostly used for educational institutions and also for small/medium-sized companies. For larger organizations, the robustness, reporting, and customer support areas are yet to be improvised. The automation of the course completion feature is not fully developed; hence, a lot of manual efforts are required. It is well-suitable for the organizations where they expect a lot of flexibility and customization.

Pros

Adobe Captivate

  • Quickly adding in graphics, text, and interactive buttons.
  • Has extensive variables and branching for additional customization, beyond the competition.
  • Has 360 degree capability which competitors don't offer (I have not used this feature).
  • High degree of customization and personalization.
  • True responsive screen display on all devices, viewable as you are creating the training. This is different than some competitors - some just shrink the screen, but Adobe Captivate allows actually removing or moving or changing items at different screen sizes.
  • If you like Flash, it has Flash output, although it's going away in 2020. Personally, I think this is an outdated technology.
  • Many advanced capabilities. I chose this product due to the capabilities.
  • Comes with assets, templates, people, head shots, and full body—excellent.
  • Adobe Captivate is the authoring tool. It integrates with Adobe Captivate Prime - which I highly recommend if you want to truly take advantage of all of its features in reporting, administration, compliance, and social learning. (I didn't use Prime because you essentially need 100+ students to affordably use Prime.) If you look at my chart of what Captivate is capable of, I can't say that Captivate has a lot of the reporting features because they are part of Prime/SCORM, although, with Captivate's customization, you might be able to do most of them if you are up to it, but I did not.

  • I really liked the user training in Docebo. It shows how users can access different modules.
  • Training reports.
  • The cloud-based system allows you to connect from anywhere.

Cons

Adobe Captivate

  • Adobe struggles in its customer support. Knowledgeable Captivate support technicians to teach and troubleshoot would elevate this powerful tool.
  • As mobile learning journeys away from Flash, developing strictly in HTML5 is a becoming a must. Captivate has an HTML5 inspector to review your project for potential flash-based issues, but development in HTML5 only is not as intuitive. I waste valuable time and effort making adjustments after the fact.
  • Many of my SMEs (subject mater experts) submit drafts in PowerPoint. Captivate has a PowerPoint import option, but transforms each slide into an image, removing any ability to edit the content after import. The issue alone is enough to drive me to alternate authoring tools. Unfortunately, we don't have the resources to distribute and teach all of our SMEs to use Captivate.

Docebo LMS

  • The new certification module is not very robust. To me this is typical of many of their modules/apps you can integrate into the system. to say the least, they leave much to be desired (for example, I never could get eCommerce to work properly).
  • Support has been truly awful the last few weeks - not only am i not getting timely responses, but i am not getting helpful responses. Functionality I paid for does not work and support, when they respond, seem to be at a loss as to how to help me.
  • Easier to customize and a more consistent experience across the product.
  • In three years I do not believe they have implemented any of my feature requests. It is a shame because many of their new features seem to have a lot of potential, but after I get in and use.
  • It feels a bit like Docebo is "nickel and diming." Some of the paid apps seem to be functionality that should be included in the basic subscription (eCommerce, gamification, having an https domain, etc.).

There is no doubt in my mind that we will be using Adobe Captivate for years to come. There are so many uses for the software that we are just scratching the surface. The more we use it, the better it gets. This is a great option for anyone looking for an eLearning authoring tool.

Adobe Captivate does take some getting used to. There are features that are much more convoluted than they need to be, but overall it is a great product with a some excellent features. Being in a pretty small market, Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline dominate the space. They are not the same software, but allow for eLearning authoring. Each has their benefit and their downside, but, for me, Adobe Captivate edges out Storyline.

The support team is good in responding and maintaining communication. Sometimes...well...almost always, you will find yourself having to use a 2nd attempt with more details and easier terminology to get the tech to understand the question or situation. These techs should know English 100% and their product 100% to be on a support team for the USA. I do not get the impression this is true.

The cost of the product is comparatively less, and the return on investment is high. It offers a lot of flexibility in terms of features, customization, enhancements, etc. Since this is an evolving product, it brings up the latest features to the customers quickly. Customer support, product stability, and reporting are a few areas where they have to improve.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate is an okay software program, but it is not something I'd pick over Articulate Storyline or Articulate 360. I only selected Captivate because it was mandatory for my course plus I wanted to explore it to find out how it worked. But after using it, I didn't find it to be as appealing as I thought. It's not a horrible software tool, it has its perks but it's just not as user-friendly as I'd hoped it would be.
