Adobe Captivate

Well suited: Gives your presentation a different appearance and allows you to create simulations that lessen your steps when it comes to making training/simulation videos.Less appropriate: Not as user-friendly as I thought. Animations/states are hidden and cause the creator to take extra steps versus using a different type of software program tool.

Extremely well suited for simple projects, when the customer process is simple or there is no process. It is less appropriate for complex projects, when software customizations may be needed (they are possible but costs may increase a lot).

Pros

  • Captivate is good for fine tuning multi-modal presentations. I have a course that has undergone a name change. With Captivate I could edit my current presentations without have to re-record the entire lecture.
  • Captivate offers a large amount of transitions and effects. These helps give online lectures a polished look.
  • Captivate exports to a wide range of video qualities and formats, which makes it easy to get finished lectures into our learning management system.

  • Ease-of-use: very friendly, intuitive, simple processes for administration.
  • Flexible and simple content publishing: easy to manage learning plans, upload learning content in several formats, assessment/testing creation/control.
  • Modular features: allow to activate/dactivate features, some of them are paid. Very useful to set up the platform accordingly.

Cons

  • Additional image editing options within Captivate would be nice.
  • While the addition of State Views in Cp9 are a welcome change, I would prefer to add the views if I want to utilize them instead of having them automatically attached to objects. This would avoid the added step of deleting the states when you don't want to use them.

  • I believe the pricing positioning could be improved, specially to support projects with more than 350 active users.
  • It would be great if the product had an integrated authoring tool to create more compelling learning content inside the platform. Today it is possible to convert PPT files or upload videos.
  • The Brazilian Portuguese version could be improved. It is possible to apply adjustments using the translation tool, but a few resources are always in English.

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.

Usability

Adobe Captivate8.0
Based on 2 answers
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.

Every issue I have ever had was handled with care and quite thoroughly. After the initial conversation on the phone, I received frequent emails letting me know what they were working on, and also received follow up phone calls. After I found the resolution, I got one more call to ensure everything was working properly. The follow up was quite surprising.

Alternatives Considered

Each software offers different strengths and weaknesses; however, the cost, reliability, and ease of use of Captivate outshines the competition. As a user since the RoboDemo days, I've been continuously impressed with what can be accomplished with Adobe Captivate.

We selected it because it integrated with Adobe Connect for our live virtual classroom content. As we are no longer using Adobe Connect, we are beginning to consider other systems.

  • We have many active users taking course content, which is great, but not a measurable ROI on our investment in Docebo.
