Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate really excels at providing tools to create interactive, electronic learning sessions. We were able to create electronic training modules on how to use a Joomla based CMS system as well as with procedures for handling data forms. It was also helpful for creating short videos with screenshots for help guides. Perhaps the one area where the program might not excel as well would be with paper based instructions or training documents. Adobe Indesign or other programs are much more feature rich for documentation creation.

As described above, the RtI data can be reviewed by the special education team in order to see if regular education teachers need to gather more data before referring a student to special education. It is also well suited for using with transferred students from other schools or districts.

Pros

  • Enrich provides a step by step process helping the special education team to organize all necessary information that includes state and federal compliance laws specifically the legislation of the IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) is entered correctly.
  • It is organized to provide the entire special education team with access to see the documentation of services and assessments.
  • It also has an ability to organize the process for RtI (Response to Intervention) which identifies the students who qualify for special education services. The special education team has access to see this information to determine if the teachers need to gather more information before referring the student for special education services.

Cons

  • Adobe Captivate does not allow for great customization overall. For example, you cannot change the default font, causing a lot of wasted time changing the font choice.
  • Creating engaging interactions could be a simpler process.
  • A customizable Quick Access Toolbar would be quite useful.

  • There is a tremendous amount of repetition of data entry. For example, you press buttons to describe services i.e. direct or indirect services and how much service time a child will receive. THEN, you have to enter it again with a sentence i.e. " The child will receive (direct or indirect) speech and language (or reading or math) services for a such and such amount of time. " There are other examples of how the provider needs to repeat information that has already been gathered by the program.
  • Of course, entering all of the data is very time-consuming.
  • Training and access to consultants are needed in order to learn how to use the entire program.

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

TutorPro's LiveContent leaves a lot to be desired. It is very difficult to use as an assessment tool. It won't record web-based applications correctly and the results are impossible to analyse. StoryBoard was similar to Adobe Captivate, but the LMS integration left us needing more. Camtasia is a linear recording tool with some add quirks that make longer videos very difficult and time consuming to edit. Camtaisa has some very strong tools, though, for video and audio editing, and we keep it around for those needs.

These other programs (Tranquility and Clarity) were used for the same purposes before the district and state started to use Enrich. The previous programs were harder to use and much more time-consuming. There is no comparison between Enrich and these other programs. I'm sure that other special education providers would agree that Enrich is the best one when compared to the previous 2 programs used for data gathering.

Return on Investment

  • One negative aspect of ROI is Adobe Captivate has a steep learning curve.
  • Another negative impact on ROI is Adobe Captivate isn't the least expensive tool on the market.
  • On the positive side, Adobe Captivate has freed up our trainers from tedious classroom tasks.
  • Another positive is that our implementation of Adobe Captivate has resulted in dozens of time-saving training modules, building a library of content used throughout the firm.

  • Overall, there are more positives than negatives about using this program. Having a program that is used by the entire state has a positive impact because now the special education process is organized in the same manner
