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.

It is great for perfecting sales skills and ramping up new talent via a library of videos. It is also great for creating sales competitions. This gets everyone engaged on the specific exercise that the firm is looking to educate its employees on

  • It allows Managers to share videos/recordings that were extremely strong and can allow reps to see what "good" looks like.
  • It allows Managers to perfect sales skills through various exercises.
  • Overtime, an organization can develop a library of videos that can be used for future hires. This helps with the ramp up of new talent that joins the firm.

Cons

  • I honestly can't think of how to improve Adobe Captivate at this time. I've been using Adobe Captivate for years to create eLearning content. While I also use other authoring tools, I always come back to Adobe Captivate to do my heavy lifting. It's a great product!
  • I just thought about one thing. I really like the way I can animate square and circles in Camtasia to look as if they were hand drawn. I wish I could do the same with Adobe Captivate.

  • LearnCore has lost videos that I have had my reps record. This is absolutely not acceptable.
  • A couple months ago, you could not assign one employee to a specific exercise. You had a create a group.
  • The platform is not as intuitive as one would think. Setting up an exercise is somewhat annoying.

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.

There are other ways you could store videos, however, LearnCore and its grading system were one of a kind. This is the reason it was selected to see if it would move the needle at our firm.

Return on Investment

  • We recently stopped using a vendor-supplied Security Awareness training and created our own in Captivate. Doing so saved our organization $15,000 per year.
  • We are looking to stop using other vendor-supplied training that will save us an additional $45,000 per year.
  • Adobe Captviate's subscription program is the way to go. For roughly $40 per month, we are able to use Captivate and receive all enhancements they release.
