Adobe Presenter

Its strength is its ability to develop on-demand content quickly. If good, fast and affordable are your main check boxes, this could be just what you need. On the other hand, this is not your stop for "spit and polished" deliverables. Storyline and Captivate this is not. That said, Adobe Presenter is one of the most flexible, affordable and (once you understand it) easy to use solutions on the market, making it a 9.5 out of 10 when it comes to bang for the buck.

It is best suited for straightforward learning and course provision where there are no printed materials to deliver with your content, and where there are not several different customized learning portfolios you need to deliver. We are making it work and their support has been fantastic, but it may not have been the best fit for our needs considering the amount of customized content we are trying to deliver

Pros

  • Because it integrates with PowerPoint, it is possible to go from planning outline to storyboard to final output withing a single document and as part of a seamless and logical design process.
  • Its ability to create videos that capture screens along with web-cam recordings, then edit them within the solution means higher level training recordings can be created versus, say a recorded WebEx training session.
  • Presenter's ability to create quiz elements similar to Adobe Captivate, add interactions, and interface with Adobe's LMS means it is capable of functioning as a complete e-learning development environment. .
  • If up front cost is a consideration, Presenter wins hands down over many better known training development and e-learning solutions.

  • Great customer service. The setup team is phenomenal and they are very engaged throughout the setup process.
  • Ease of use. It is easy to create and publish content across domains and make it available to your learners.
  • Always adding new features. Skilljar is very responsive to how their customers are using the product and they are constantly adding new and useful features.

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.

  • Pricing. We are up for renewal and the pricing structure has changed and is a little hard to follow, and it seems like year over year cost will be significantly higher.
  • Customization limitations. There is a lot that Skiljar can do, but we have been limited by some of the things that it can't that are particular to our use cases. This is a minor con.
  • Administrative overhead. Because of workarounds that we need to do because of lacking functionality, there is a considerable amount of administrative overhead. Again, this is minor as it pertains to Skilljar, as it is our particular use cases that present the challenge.

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.

Skilljar was an easy choice because of its web-based format, ease of integration with our current website and built-in e-commerce platform and Stripe integration. The others were also significantly more expensive and did not offer the same level of customer support. Skilljar was ready to use out of the box and gave us all that we need to implement.

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.

  • Streamlined training process
