Adobe Presenter

As I mentioned earlier, it's best used for "presentations," rather than bona fide "training." That's why we tend to use it when the information is relatively simple and/or doesn't need to be fully internalized or mastered (which would require providing opportunities for practice and feedback and a more engaging, interactive learning experience). However, it can be used as part of a blended-learning solution, with some information provided via an Adobe Presenter module first, and then some kind of instructor-led session as a follow-up, which would include more role-specific info, as well as practice and feedback opportunities.Also, as I mentioned earlier, Adobe Presenter Video Express is great for creating quick overview demos about a new system -- more of a "see what it can do" type thing than a "here's how you do it" thing (unless the "it" is very simple and the video is used more as a microlearning/performance support type of offering).

Relias Learning Management System

Good for an organization who are in health care and in ABA. Not so good everyone else. There are courses specific to the industry, however, the glitches and the lack of support from the customer service staff makes it hard to recommend the product.

Pros

  • This tool is great for allowing anyone already familiar with PowerPoint to convey reasonably simple and short content asynchronously. It's quick and easy to learn how to use it and even allows for some basic types of quiz questions.
  • You can publish it to your company's Adobe server (if you have one) or as a SCORM package to upload to a traditional LMS.
  • It gives you the choice of recording audio within its own PowerPoint ribbon (not my method of choice) or to import and sync audio created outside of Presenter (which I prefer, because it's easier to edit and maintain.)
  • I also love that it comes with Adobe Presenter Video Express, which can be used within the Presenter ribbon or as a stand-alone application. It's a very easy way to create short system demos with narration, and allows for zooming and panning, as well as allowing you to intersperse, or even simultaneously show, webcam video.

  • Proving mandatory staff trainings such as blood borne pathogens.
  • Provides uniform board trainings on HIPAA expectations.
  • Provides support to staff who have work deficiencies and may have disciplinary action.

Cons

  • I feel it is a bit overpriced. That may be because of the Adobe name.
  • Our team has experienced a few technical issues over time which sometimes limit our use of the software.
  • Limited features available for our macOS users.

  • Develop analytics!!!
  • The more interactive, the better the training tool. I also appreciate more ability to customize the leadership modules to better reflect our agency values.

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.

RMLS have become an important component of our agency's support systems. It provides consistent context for education and trainings as well as being flexible to allow staff to access it on their time. We have found many of the content sessions to be very useful for staff development and supportive of our overall agency goals and strategies.

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

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

It was very easy to implement. It's cloud based, so the most difficult part was getting users loaded.

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.

Halogen also had it's pros and cons but for the industry that i am in, Relias is a better option due to the number of courses available for staff in the industry.

Return on Investment

  • It will be safe to say that overall impact had been positive in regards to ROI
  • Training costs have been reduced by a huge margin since we started using this tool.
  • Time consumed in training staff is also decreased, as with Adobe Presenter training can be done remotely and are able to train different groups at the same time.

  • Positive impact in terms of a staff resource/tool for rolling out new policies or procedures.
  • Positive impact for providing ease of access, consistency of content, recording of trainings/sessions completed and supporting staff development.
  • Perhaps RLMS could develop an analytics sessions specific to population health management and general health care services. These are important components of an integrative system of care and often hardest to communicate the value to folks highly trained just in behavioral health.
