Articulate Studio

Articulate Studio is fantastic for sharing information based eLearning content that can be developed quickly and easily by developers who are not well versed in programming, scripting or graphic design. It is less appropriate for eLearning that requires simulations or complex interactions as the bulk of the content is derived from templates.

SAP Jam

When you need to create a private, secure space for individuals to collaborate or work on a project together, SAP Jam does a great job at bringing people together and giving them a space to work together in. There are also great ways to provide learning opportunities (including sharing webinars or other educational content)

Pros

  • Fast eLearning turn around time.
  • Eliminates a lot of the need to learn complicated eLearning authoring tools
  • Great interactions and templates built right into the suite.

  • Managing members with the communities is easy (including inviting them to join).
  • Publishing and editing content is easy with the platform.
  • The interface is easy to use and navigate.

Cons

  • I wish Articulate had a plan for subscriptions. Updates comes so fast and pricing is expensive. Subscriptions would allow developers to have most updated version of the software whenever they need. We all know our customers are not as fast as the software updates and it's good to have the most up-to-date version of the software without having to purchase it each time (SL 1 vs. SL 2).
  • Closed Caption programing is a hassle currently. I understand that slide notes work as an alternative text, but most customers would like to see the "CC" button and read the text along with the narrator. It takes lots of steps to program the closed caption button. Captivate has a better solution at the moment.

  • Sometimes users get too many notifications from the system which can be overwhelming if they haven't set up their notifications to their standards.
  • Analytics on engagement aren't great.

There is very little chance that this software wold not be renewed. It has become an integral part of our standard software for elearning development.

We are moving toward other platforms that are meant more for virtual community, like Higher Logic. The customer support at SAP Jam is also lacking.

Usability

This is very useable software even for novice eLearning authoring users. People with some PowerPoint experience should be fine with this software and even Excel!

It's an integrated platform that brings together a lot of different people from across the association to work on shared projects, etc. Given the various roles people play and the varying skill sets they bring to the table, the platform is fairly intuitive to use and easy to navigate around

Support

Overall support is great for issues that they are able to help with. Other times it seems like instead of fixing the bugs you are told to wait for the newest version so instead of getting a fix for free you have to pay to upgrade. I have found this frustrating

We have to submit requests multiple times to get a response and it often feels like they go into a black hole. Because we don't have anyone in house really supporting the back-end of the platform, we rely on SAP Jam's support and development teams to help solve problems and improve the platform for us.

Alternatives Considered

There was nothing against other products. Our customer was already using Articulate Studio; therefore, we had to use the same product to continue their projects, update existing courses, and create new ones. All the tools I have used so far have their own strengths

We actually probably moving to Higher Logic for our virtual community needs -- their interface is better and can more easily integrate with our website to provide a seamless experience for our users. We also want them to be able to toggle between our website and the community platform and it's not currently set up to do that well

Return on Investment

  • My clients see huge returns, especially on compliance training that they've converted from ILT to eLearning using Studio.
  • Orientation costs for new hires can be significantly reduced by building a learner-led course shell that includes some self directed learning outside of the course itself.

  • Our constituents value community and this has enabled us to be able to bring people together in a secure, virtual space.
  • We are a national association and many of the people that need to collaborate on work projects aren't physically in the same place, so this virtual space has improved work output.
