Adobe Presenter

I love using Presenter to turn old, boring, and stagnant material into interactive course material. The software is useful for educators looking to author online courses or to author courses with an online portion. If you need a software that will enable you to take content you already have and then to make it more dynamic, offer students options of which way to go with their learning, then this is the software for you. The tools are similar to the office suite, so there isn't a steep learning curve.

Docebo LMS

If you need to get up and running quickly with an online training system, are okay with mediocre functionality, and want to use course content from their marketplace, Docebo is a good option. If you want a more powerful system and good support, then I do not recommend Docebo.

Pros

  • The drag and drop method of Adobe Presenter makes the software really easy to learn and use. It allows me to create presentations that are much more powerful and creative.
  • I LOVE the YouTube help videos. I feel like there is a help video on every topic I have ever wanted to know more about. I have almost grown to be an expert based on the help videos posted. They are easy to access and user-friendly.
  • I use the scenario templates. Because I teach programming courses, students can go different ways based on the knowledge that they already have of the content in the courses. The built in scenario templats allow me to create dynamic courses that are different for every learner that uses the course I am teaching them.

  • The user interface is well designed and for the most part very intuitive.
  • Administration is fairly straight forward - I've used other LMSs that require intense concentration and pages of written notes to remember how to create and deploy a course - this is not the case with Docebo.
  • Docebo is an open system that has many integrations.

Cons

  • Sometimes I feel like Presenter feels too much like Power Point. This may make some users not want to use the software.
  • I have a hard time when saving presentations and then pulling them up in other locations- it often takes longer than I want to wait, but I am a millennial (I think?).

  • The new certification module is not very robust. To me this is typical of many of their modules/apps you can integrate into the system. to say the least, they leave much to be desired (for example, I never could get eCommerce to work properly).
  • Support has been truly awful the last few weeks - not only am i not getting timely responses, but i am not getting helpful responses. Functionality I paid for does not work and support, when they respond, seem to be at a loss as to how to help me.
  • Easier to customize and a more consistent experience across the product.
  • In three years I do not believe they have implemented any of my feature requests. It is a shame because many of their new features seem to have a lot of potential, but after I get in and use.
  • It feels a bit like Docebo is "nickel and diming." Some of the paid apps seem to be functionality that should be included in the basic subscription (eCommerce, gamification, having an https domain, etc.).

My company is pretty invested in the Adobe ecosystem and is unlikely to change that in the foreseeable future. Also, Adobe Presenter is a very valuable tool and, with the new subscription model and the pricing we have, a relatively modest expense now. It's also fairly easy to learn and use, so it is starting to spread beyond the sphere of the various Learning & Development departments.

Usability

Adobe Presenter7.3
Based on 1 answer
For all of the reasons I mentioned earlier. Overall, it's quite easy to create basic presentations with and to publish output with, either to an Adobe server, an LMS, or, I think, as stand-alone module. But there are some areas for improvement and better in-product help and explanations would be helpful, as well.

Support

Adobe Presenter3.6
Based on 1 answer
I think I pretty much answered this earlier....premium support is extremely expensive and online support can be difficult to navigate. Although, to be fair, when it comes to Presenter (compared to, say, Captivate), there isn't too frequent a need for support, since Presenter is a rather simple tool to use

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Presenter was the first product we started using. We were lacking something in our system and someone recommended Adobe Presenter to us. After carefully reviewing aspects of Adobe Presenter, we figured it will be best for our needs. Although the transition period was a little tough for us, in a couple of weeks time we were very comfortable with it.

We selected it because it integrated with Adobe Connect for our live virtual classroom content. As we are no longer using Adobe Connect, we are beginning to consider other systems.

Return on Investment

  • I feel like we have increased productivity of educators and learners. If you've already invested in the Office suite, there isn't a large learning curve for educators, so that is a huge positive when it comes to the lack of training required for the software.

  • We have many active users taking course content, which is great, but not a measurable ROI on our investment in Docebo.
