Likelihood to Recommend

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).

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

Adobe Presenter

  • It is very easy for faculty to use. Even those who have limited experience in creating online courses feel comfortable using Presenter.
  • It allows our faculty to have students working in different areas at the same time so we are able to individualize our instruction to meet student needs.
  • The quiz feature is fantastic to be able to quickly assess student learning to determine if they are ready to move forward.

Cons

Adobe Presenter

  • 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 Presenter

Based on 2 answers
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.

It is easy to access since it is an added tool to the Powerpoint program. We have not had complaints from faculty members regarding not having it available when they need it.

Due to the aforementioned issues with Flash, it can be discouraging to get to the publishing stage and begin receiving error messages. Once we are able to move past that issue, we have great success with the performance of Adobe Presenter.

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

I compared Adobe Presenter to Brainshark many years ago and found that I vastly preferred Presenter because it had much better quality audio (Brainshark used telephones to record audio at that point, although that may have changed over the years) and was easier and more intuitive to use (at least to me. I also looked at Snap, but that wasn't quite as full-featured, although it was vastly less expensive. Another main reason why we use Adobe Presenter is that my company is pretty deeply invested in Adobe products and we have our own hosted Adobe server, which we can easily publish to via Adobe Presenter

Not applicable as RLMS was our first and only choice.

The program still seems to rely heavily on Adobe Flash even though the online community is moving away from it. When publishing, users will experience error messages regarding Flash, which can make it difficult to complete your work.

Return on Investment

Adobe Presenter

  • 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.

Relias Learning Management System

  • 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.
