Articulate 360

Articulate 360 is a great authoring tool for beginners. It has a very clean user interface and makes creating courses a breeze. You don't need to have much experience as an instructional designer to create a great and professional-looking course. I would recommend it for instructors who want to create intuitive courses available on many different platforms.

iSpring Learn

Pros
  • New starter training
  • Bulk Training--allows you to assign one course to everyone with a click of a button, saving you the effort of delivering the course to all members of the team in a more physical setting.
  • Reporting on who has done what/going the extra mile
Cons
  • Not everything can be restricted to certain users, which is the only downside I find.

Pros

Articulate 360

  • Ease of use/ability to learn how to use features
  • Clean and simple design output makes it easy for learners to navigate through courses
  • Freedom to create what your imagination can dream up
  • Community Support from e-learning heroes is great! Any issues are normally resolved with the community within a day and articulate staff still follows up.
  • 360 is always being upgraded and improved with character bundles, image/video content, and new feature roll-outs.

iSpring Learn

  • Clean display. Many of our users are new to online learning, so it was imperative that the display and interface were easy for users.
  • Cost effective. Compared to many of the other online learning systems this program is affordable.
  • Easy to create a course. On the administrative side, it is easy to create content and put together the course.

Cons

Articulate 360

  • More flexibility to customize the look and feel of Articulate Rise templates (think of position of corporate logo and colors in quizzes)
  • A functionality that I would love to see is A morph transition
  • The JavaScript trigger can’t be used in preview mode. This really slows down the workflow when working with JavaScript
Paul Alders | TrustRadius Reviewer

iSpring Learn

  • Although an evaluation form can be created for users to complete providing feedback of the system, I would like to have a default template to use for this purpose.
  • The default certificate needs to be updated for a more professional look. One can create an evaluation but it’s not worth the hassle.
  • Can’t think of anything else.

In the past I could not encourage my students to take online training. The results and the questions were hard to be given. When I used the iSpring Suite along with iSpring Learn, my dreams came through and most of the time my students are online and take good training with my programme.

Overall I can't fault Articulate 360. Sure, there are always enhancements that an individual user would like to see introduced, but generally speaking the usability is second to none.
Articulate 360 offers something for users of all levels. It can be friendly enough not to turn off novices, but has enough about it to keep the professional coming back for more.

I have no problem using it and it is the same for my students. Anytime I ask them which part is not easy to use, they keep silent and say thank you.

It took forever to get someone to respond--either by email or by phone--directly to a pricing and licensing question. It is unfortunate that a company that has such potential as a streamlined course building/authoring tool not only missed the boat with service but also proves itself to be all fluff and no substance.

They just do not work on the weekends. If I need anything, they reply less in than 24 hours, except holidays. I like that. They give me good chat support a lot. If I forget that I sent them an email, they do not forget and reply to me very soon. It is really appreciated.

We can say that most of my students attend my classes twice a week and that's not enough for someone to learn. I put some training for them to do at home and they really enjoy doing them. The kind of progress they make is really satisfying for them and they are always learning.

As a teacher, I used to spend a lot of time correcting my students' papers. Now with iSpring Learn, my time has been saved and everything is done automatically. All the time I can check my students' progress and I know which exams they have taken or they should take. On the whole, online training has really helped a lot of teachers

When I talked to my colleagues or informed them to search for a programme before iSpring Learn, they were not successful in designing and implementing a programme like this. I am sure they have done a lot to implement it in the best and educational way. That was not that easy as we thought.

Alternatives Considered

Articulate 360

Articulate 360 has the total package vs the other tools. If you just wanted to do video, you can use tools like Camtasia. Another elearning tool I have tried is called Viewlet Builder. It was a very stripped down version of a Storyline type software where you could create and produce elearning modules as well. Articulate 360 has pretty much all of the capabilities of the other kinds of elearning development tools, so you pretty much only need one suite instead of compiling a toolkit of mixed software

When it comes to creating materials for learners, Moodle is a real drag to work with, and ProProfs is not much better. ProProfs' LMS is pretty good, but they don't have a good way to create good-looking materials offline. iSpring's Quizmaker seems to have great promise.

Return on Investment

Articulate 360

  • So far we have been able to implement a host of interactive eLearnings that have received a widely positive reception from our learner base! It has some glitches but everyone is mostly happy with it and seem to learn a lot.
  • Rise is so easy to use that I can whip up a course as easily as I can whip up an outline, so usually, I just dive into course creation and share that as my "outline." This helps me get work done faster.
  • Being able to review my work with the 'Review' tool has allowed us to collaborate much more quickly, which has DEEPLY benefitted one of our big revenue-generating projects last year.

iSpring Learn

  • It has helped us by automating the state-mandated trainings that we need to do. We used to do them by paper and had to manually check them off in our system. With iSpring Learn, we are able to automatically track our training outcomes.
  • We have also been able to implement more supplemental trainings for our staff as we can put additional classes online and they can take the class(es) they want (or we require them) to take. It has not been long, but we have seen a slow increase in the number of staff taking the additional trainings which gives us a better trained workforce.
