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.

MindTap

We started using the application optimally at the beginning as a digital learning and consultation platform. In it we imported all kinds of bibliographic material so that students could access them with the ease of a tap. The application is perfect for those instructors who are not beginners in HTML. In that case, the application very practically allows them to create a complete course in the shortest possible time because it has a state-of-the-art instructional design. It was excellent for unifying all the basic course plans between teachers teaching the same subject, giving the advantage that all courses at the same level would have exactly the same information and nothing would be overlooked

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

MindTap

  • The biggest issue our first-time users have with Mindtap is that ad/pop-up blockers often stop the tool from opening. (Mindtap typically opens in a new window vs inside the LMS) This leads to a lot of initial frustration amongst the students early in the course.
  • MindTap lacks a really strong set of roles outside of Instructor and Student. There is no Teaching Assistant role or and IT/Course Builder role. Additionally setting up students workers as TAs in one course while they may be a student in another concurrently has been more than a little cumbersome.
  • The UI is a bit dated and it doesn't implement many responsive web design features, though this can typically be worked around by downloading the free app.
  • The mobile app experience is not as strong for Instructors as it is for students.

It's hard to imagine not renewing it as the professors would not want to go back to the way their courses were previously populated.The only thing that would cause us to change would be in the textbook changed and the new company offered a better tool

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.

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.

The effort from them always feels strong - I'd just recommend they be more prepared for OS (mac) and LMS (blackboard) upgrades

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

MindTap is the only learning software I currently use, but in the past I have used Pearson and McGraw Hill learning content. All of these companies are progresses at a similar rate and making great improvements to their educational materials. MindTap, in my opinion has the best customer service support and representatives in the business. Our rep. has been very responsive.

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.

  • The positive impact is to help students practice statistics to solve business problems.
  • The negative side is that the pricing might be too high compared to other free options available, even though the free options might not have the same features MindTap has.
