Adobe Captivate

Captivate is a great tool for creating content from scratch intended for use in responsive design. This is one of my go-to tools when this particular scenario exists. Captivate's responsive design option and the wide range of tools make the application an amazing option for mobile design. Despite having a PowerPoint import and conversion option, Captivate is NOT the tool to use when starting with content created in PowerPoint. Slides are imported as a single image, removing animations and any ability to edit the content.

  • I like the way Eduson.tv is developing, and I believe they should keep on moving in this direction: making more courses, eLearning tools and tests for personnel assessment.

We are all in with Adobe products as creative tools, but are leaning more and more on Articulate for course development. It is likely that Captivate will continue to be a tool in our belt even if it isn't our immediate go to

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.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Captivate

Articulate 360 offers a both Storyline and Rise as eLearning authoring tools, as well as a Stock Library with over 100,000 images for $1200/year. Adobe Captivate is a stand alone product for $30/month. If you are only using eLearning authoring tools the cost is significantly less. If you are looking at the broader suite of software, Articulate 360 does offer two eLearning authoring tools and a Stock Library, in addition to 3 other program, for a total of 5. For the same cost, I purchased Adobe Captivate along with the entire Adobe Creative Cloud suite (27 programs), including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, etc.. This suite offers a much broader range of design, allowing for content to be created and engaged in many more ways

  • Eduson.tv helped us to increase overall ROI of our L&D department. The price of the LMS and the library of courses is way less than costs associated with the similar volume of instructor-led training.
