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.

JoomlaLMS

Very comfortable and adaptive LMS system for your needs and requirements. JoomlaLMS can be integrated into your eLearning site. If you are willing to adapt these technologies to your company - it can be your best choice. JoomlaLMS contains all necessary features and modules. So in other words its a shrink-wrap system.

Cons

  • I wanted Captivate to be a little bit more intuitive. This may take away from the endless ability to customize; however, it would make things easier if you wanted it.
  • Creating interactions could be a little easier. You have to make sure that every tiny detail of the interaction is timed and entered perfectly for the interaction to work.
  • Some ready-made templates that are easy to manipulate and computer voice-over would be nice. Perhaps that functionality is available now, but it was not in the version we had earlier this year.

  • We'd like to see more intuitive design, as it requires some training to learn all the features. So we are looking forward to see it in future releases.

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

Based on 2 answers
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

Captivate is better for software simulations and handles images a bit better. Storyline always makes a box around the images, which is problematic for selecting items in a drag and drop environment. The workflow of being able to edit images right within the software is also a plus for Captivate.
