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.

If the application is integrated into the Infor suite, it may be a good fit. On paper, the application met most of our needs. The implementation was where the issues arose.

Pros

Adobe Captivate

  • 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.

Infor Learning Management

  • Has lots of capabilities to track learning plans. One can set up a learning plan and track progress towards it.
  • Coursework can vary by plan so it can cover technical work like skilled trades as well as business training courses.
  • Single sign on was advertised so a user only needed to log into Infor once.

Cons

Adobe Captivate

  • 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.

Infor Learning Management

  • Single Sign on never worked.
  • Our company was on the bleeding edge and tried to use Infor Learning Management shortly after Infor purchased the company. The software was not yet integrated into the Infor platform.
  • Project managers weren't sure of the answers to some implementation questions.

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

I am giving 8 instead of 10 because we need to implement some new features in the system and this is a long process to accomplish. If it was easier and shorter, I would give a 10.Also, lately we are facing some technical issues which impacted some users experience, but Certpoint is working hard to catch up on this.

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.

Infor Learning Management was selected because the organization owned other Lawson/Infor products and we were concerned about the integration. Ease of integration was a primary selection criteria. The price was also better given the products we already owned.

Return on Investment

Adobe Captivate

  • To be frank, ROI is difficult to measure at this point in an academic institution, but I do find that in general, online students respond well to seeing and hearing an instructor's face and voice. This has probably helped improve student evaluations in my online classes, would be a metric that most higher ed instructors would be concerned with.
  • I suppose a negative impact would be time investment. However this can be mitigated by re-using materials when appropriate.
  • My use this quarter has involved editing pre-existing lectures. I've been able to shorted several lectures and I've been able to break up one lecture that was way too long into two smaller, more modular lectures. This has helped improve the class without forcing me to re-record the same lecture.

Infor Learning Management

  • I'm no longer with the organization I was with when I worked on implementing the Infor Learning Management System, so I don't know the final ROI.
