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.

How best to work with the vendor: think of yourself as part of their Quality Improvement team and let them know when you see something that might be improved. They really listen.

Cons

  • It drives me crazy that the caption text doesn't automatically put a period at the end...I always have to end up going into each and every one to add that darned period!
  • The caption boxes aren't as slick looking as they should be nowadays, and the ability to customize them isn't quite as robust as I'd like.
  • Getting live tech support is exceedingly expensive and Adobe has the worst, most frustrating website (which is ironic, considering the products that they sell). Adobe has many very good products, but they're not a company I enjoy doing business with.

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.

I say 9 instead of 10 not because of any lack of confidence in SkyPrep but only because I can't be sure how large or responsive my market -- male-friendly social workers and other helping professionals -- will be to my offerings.

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

Although Articulate Storyline is more user friendly, Adobe Captivate has more functionality and options to choose from when designing an eLearning course. Articulate Storyline's interface is similar to Microsoft PowerPoint, so if you have experience with that program, Storyline should come as a Breeze. However, you are limited by all of the things you may wish to do when creating your eLearning course, which is why we chose Captivate instead.

Moodle is more complex than I could handle. Softchalk has a user's troubleshooting manual that would have overwhelmed my customers. ProProfs has a poor sense of design and branding.

Return on Investment

  • Helps us easily convert some (as appropriate) live instructor led courses into on-demand eLearnings, which enables to better utilize our in-person classroom time. By stuffing less into our in-person events, our learners have a better experience (course ratings) and retain more (process compliance)

  • The sales potential made possible by SkyPrep functionality has made online training a major part of my business plan. Before I teamed up with SkyPrep it was merely a sideline.
