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.

Pros

  • Captivate allows the user the ability to create a drag n drop method within your presentation. I was able to successfully incorporate an activity within my course module that would allow the learner the chance to test their knowledge by dragging and dropping items into the correct sections. I found that to be nice and pretty seamless.
  • Captivate allows the user to create and include states and actions. I think this is important because it allows for the creator to make engaging and interactive slides that will hopefully keep the learner motivate and engaged in the material.
  • Captivate has the options of demo and simulation slide presentations. I found these to be useful within the course I was building because it prevented me from having to complete extra steps of using a different video caption software tool then having to upload it into Captivate. This feature was already included within Captivate which made it nice and easy to access and incorporate into my presentation.

Cons

  • Adobe Captivate can be a resource hog for lower end systems, especially when working with video clips or voice over recordings.
  • The full license price can be expensive for smaller organizations.
  • The program can be a bit difficult to learn in the beginning.

  • The functionality between countries, i.e. combining data from the different companies into joint reports etc., could be improved.
  • The survey function is working fine, but with multiple companies it could be improved, making it easier to make surveys inviting employees from different companies.
  • The Finnish translation could be better sometimes.

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.

Support

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.

eloomi gives us everything (and more!) that we were lacking in our previous system. If our former system was a Trabant, eloomi is a new modern sportscar.

  • I don´t have any numbers but the cost per employee is a lot less with eloomi compared to our previous system, and still eloomi gives us much more when it comes to functionality.
