Likelihood to Recommend

Articulate 360

If you are looking to create a piece of elearning content, or a complete elearning solution, with responsive sites and design, then this is probably the best tool you could choose at the current time. There is also the bonus of the full library.I feel this is best suited for:
  • Games
  • Branching scenarios
  • Interactive video
  • Rotating models
  • Infographics
If you are looking to save money and simply create a simple presentation, I'd suggest an older version, or to simply stick with Powerpoint.

It is a great tool to generate learning objects until a certain level of content sophistication. It will certainly depend on the creativity and knowledge of the author about how to extract the best from the tool's features. It is recommended for non-technical users and normally it offers much more features than most of the authors will demand and actually use. If you want to develop high-interactive and/or multi-path courses then the tool may be a bit limited, but the best way to find out is downloading the trial version and test it for a while.

Pros

  • Online collaboration with plenty of storage. You are able to share your projects easily and collaborate with others, even if they do not have a license for Articulate 360.
  • Responsive design for mobile. The Rise product is amazing. Accessed through a browser, you can build eLearning on any computer and it looks great on every screen.
  • Regular updates. Articulate 360 has been great about making regular improvements to the platform. They are really fulfilling the promise they made when they moved to a subscription model.
  • A complete package. Every tool in 360 makes sense and seamlessly works with each other.
  • A plethora of content. With the subscription you get access to Articulate's library of templates, people, images, video and icons. This library continues to grow and is high quality.

  • Screen recording is great. Very simple to use and delivers exactly what is expected by us in terms of quality.
  • Powerpoint conversion is a simple process. In fact, it is possible to add a lot of additional resources to make it more compelling and engaging. It may generate a lot of benefits for companies that already have many PPT files.
  • Quizzes and interactive assessments are also a great feature, with multiple types of questions. It can be mixed with learning content to create a process based on continuous learning and testing.
  • It exports the project in different publishing formats, so it makes much easier for non-technical users to create and export any content and then publish it on LMS platforms.

Cons

  • The Support Community is great; however, it can be hard to find an answer to your support needs.
  • Out of my price range as an individual ($999 annually)
  • No browser-based version - yet!

  • Language. There is not a version of the product in Portuguese. We understand it is a problem considering the big amount of features and options that the product offers.
  • Player setup could be more flexible in terms of design and graphics. It is possible to adjust settings and options but in visual terms, there are some limitations.
  • The product may be a bit low to execute depending on the computer capabilities, especially when opening or exporting projects. But, we have experienced the same using other similar tools.

Alternatives Considered

With the older version of Captivate, do not like the learning curve. Articulate 360 eliminates that obstacle. I love Storyline and Storyline 2. I used Articulate Studio for several years, and it is very good for someone that knows PowerPoint, or wants to convert PowerPoint slides into e-learning with out any "fuss".

I think iSpring is very similar to other main competitors (that we have evaluated) in terms of features and resources. The great difference is pricing, since iSpring has a low cost per license. It is very easy and quick to download, install and use, even during the trial period.

Return on Investment

  • I cannot yet assess our ROI since our program is still new and we have not yet had a chance to see ROI.

  • A very positive impact is being able to complete the whole authorting process based on the work of one single professional (author). Before iSpring, we needed to involve a technical person to create pages, animations, interactions, etc. It means cost reductions and time saving.
  • The product has a low price when compared to similar competitors. It is a great advantage when it is necessary to purchase licenses for many users.
  • Medium learning curve. It does not take too long to train someone new to use the tool, but the final product should be simple at first. Depending on the size of a course or amount of objects to generate, productivity may be an issue depending on the knowledge level of the authoring users.
