Articulate Studio

Use it when your development time is short, your budget is low or when you know that the learning content will have to be updated soon or very often. I don't think it is the appropriate tool if you plan do deliver a high-interactive content, but it is possible to test it using the trial version of the product and then understand if Studio is the tool you need.

Mindflash

When making a decision about whether to choose Mindflash as your LMS, you will want to consider what kind of formats your training materials will typically be in. For example, will your trainings typically be PowerPoints, MP4s, PDFs, or Word documents? If yes, then Mindflash will work well for you. If your training materials are in other, less common formats then Mindflash will not work well for you. Before you make your decision on whether to use Mindflash, make sure that your training materials' formats are compatible with Mindflash.

Pros

  • Interactive questions and answers
  • Non-linear presentation
  • Deliver on multiple platforms
Frank Broen profile photo
  • Easy to see trainee status of who has not started, who is in progress and who has completed a course - which makes it easy to send targeted reminders
  • Easy to swap out content when updating a course
  • Easy to create a course series from individual modules

Cons

  • It has a higher learning curve than just presentation tools, primarily because it can do more. With more complexity, there are more things to learn. There are many things you can do without using advanced features.
  • Would like to see higher definition options for presenting on an HD monitor.
  • Occasional problems with publishing that require some time to resolve problems or find work-arounds.

  • Many clicks to get to individual courses within a series
  • Hard to populate quizzes and the text boxes are small and you can't see everything you're writing

We like a lightweight solution and although Mindflash offers more complex reporting, you can always just use the at-a-glance reports when you don't need all the details.

The interface is just so simple to understand. It's clean and efficient. We showed Mindflash off to the Safety group, who are not computer gurus and they were beyong excited to use it.

First, they have a decent knowledgebase. Second, you can ask them a question instantly via live chat. I have yet to present a problem they couldn't fix. And I always feel like my problems matter.

If you're going to develop a short course to demo the product internally, don't bother avoiding your own topics. Mindflash rolls whatever content you create during the trial into your production environment when you decide to buy. The time taken to go from not having a system to being live with Mindflash is virtually instant. What you'll be wanting for is time to develop content and people to test it out.

Alternatives Considered

Each tool I mentioned has its pluses and minuses. The other tools aren't as easy to use right out of the box, Articulate is. Articulate has its limits and if I had a more complex course I needed to build I would choose one of the other products. But again for the easier projects that don't require much I would use Articulate

The ease of use for both learners and administrators in Mindflash is unbeatable in my opinion. The system may not have all the fancy bells and whistles that Cornerstone or Litmos has but we didn’t need all that and honestly, it was all getting in the way.

  • It's easy to use and can help you do more in a short time frame.
