Articulate Studio

Articulate Studio is constantly surprising in terms of what it can do. It is like a "Swiss Army Knife" of functionality. I've used it to build portfolios, whole interactive websites, authoring videos and I often discover novel ways to make it useful on a pretty regular basis. What would be a situation where you would not want to use Articulate Studio? Well, even though you can use it to author video and to publish websites, it's not a replacement for a video editing package or a web platform like WordPress, but there are times when it will do certain things in an astoundingly simple way superior to other tools.

SAP Litmos

As an LMS it is intuitive and has a user-friendly design for both the learner and the administrator, making it accessible for almost all learners. It was designed for learning predominantly so it's great for hosting content such as SCORM packages, videos, documents etc - but improved focus on using it as both a comms and community platform, as is becoming increasingly required within the L&D space, would be advantageous as the news and discussion forums are a bit underwhelming. But it's not its core purpose, so that's understandable. The sheer volume of integrations and features that just keep coming, keeps its appeal and allows us to keep evolving the learner experience.

Pros

Articulate Studio

  • They made it very easy to understand how to add new content to the courses, including images, videos or audio, of course, you are still able to do text-based content as well.
  • Creating quizzes has never been easier. The ability to add controls to each question and what actions each answer creates, whether an additional question or passing to the next section. Customizing these actions are very easy to learn and add to your course.
  • Being able to use your own scoring mechanism is awesome! I like SCORM but there are many options to use including a custom one of your own. This ability allows you to pass your students over to a proprietary system that enrolls them in the next course, or use the built-in utilities to provide the next course or quiz, the choice is yours!

SAP Litmos

  • Reporting- SAP Litmos allows customized and automated reporting features that will help with identifying learner trends and patterns
  • Customized Dashboards- Allows learners to see the progress, task reminders and completed achievements
  • Course Library - Offers a robust library of courses to meet the constant needs of your organization.
  • Adding course content that reflect the current time- For example Litmos readiness academy to reflect on maintaining a productive work environment during a Pandemic
  • Accessibility-training can be accessed from mobile devices on the go and a user can exit a training and pick up right where they left off without losing progress.

Cons

Articulate Studio

  • The audio editor is awful. Sometimes when you cut a section, it actually takes a different section that you selected. Especially when in zoom mode. You have to then undo the action, and re-do. Also, scrubbing through the audio is difficult. If you're exporting audio, it can glitch during the process. I avoid using the audio editor whenever I can.
  • After all these years, it's still a buggy program. You can be doing your recordings, and a sudden message appears saying that something went wrong and needs to close. I've done re-installs, contacted support, and I constantly clear the temp folder. Still happens. Also, it's a good idea to export your audio, and there have been times the program freezes up on me, and the audio file (in the .ppta file) gets corrupted and all audio is permanently lost.
  • The program can get slow when publishing, previewing or opening the audio editor.
  • The included Engage program is pretty good, but it needs more customization options. And I think they can add more modules that provide a little more engagement.

SAP Litmos

  • Searching for teams is a challenge, as we have to enter the entire name (or know exactly how it starts), since all our locations start with Harvest of _________, it means having to type that and not just the unique indicator that would be in the blank.
  • Some reporting capability could be improved, as it only provides the latest iteration of something rather than historical data.
  • Ability to view/print an organization structure with Litmos is still a challenge.

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.

For what we need in the very near future, Litmos does not offer us the required capability. Ideally, we are looking for an integrated LMS, coaching, mobile support and content creation platform. Litmos may have the LMS part covered but there are other platforms that do this better along with providing an integrated all-in-one service or at the very least support API integration with other vendors to meet our requirements.

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!

I think overall usability is good to great. The user and admin interface is customizable and very easy to use. Litmos does release new features every quarter and it definitely enhances and builds value for the product. Our Company uses the Litmos system extensively, probably more than the majority of Litmos clients. With feature releases, we tend to notice bugs but they are quick to fix the major ones.

I've never really had any major issues with the product (Other than the registration loop error)and my ten out of ten rating is based on the assistance I got when we initially set up the extension in Power Point. I found the support folks to be professional, helpful and friendly

The knowledgebase is very generic, so beyond some basic, "this is how you use Litmos", I am not super impressed with the self-service options for troubleshooting issues or finding best practices from peers. Getting a response from specialists also takes a great deal of effort. The initial ticket is almost never where my answer comes from, so I have to wait on the escalation to take place, and usually that goes to an account specialist. Once I get that, there is usually a back and forth before we agree on what the issue is. Service is always courteous, but not efficient. I am never sure where my ticket stands with regard to escalation/processing, so I have to inquire. Service tickets and service are not a clean process right now, at least not for me. Nothing like it was during our implementation.

I was not part of the purchasing process, however, I was a part of the implementation of Litmos and part of the training of how to work with Litmos. I am also the person who contacts customer service and billing.

Alternatives Considered

Articulate Studio

We look at Captivate first, which Adobe oddly leaves out of its Creative Cloud suite, and I can see why it seems to be completely foreign in term of UI vs other Adobe products. The familiar PPT structure Captivate leverages is completely absent and the tools are much more rigid. Exporting was also more difficult - it's pretty night and day different. Captivate is AWFUL, especially for an Adobe product.

SAP Litmos

Each one of the other products reviewed had one or more required features missing. A big feature that most other LMS's didn't have was a native iOS or Android application; or if there was a mobile application, it was quite frankly difficult to use and unintuitive. The Litmos Applications worked relatively well, were simple to use and enabled us to complete all of our necessary requirements. Other features that the competition struggled with was training material compatibility; Litmos allowed for SCORM or Tin Can, videos, PowerPoint, PDFs, etc. where other programs didn't allow us to add many of these formats.

Return on Investment

Articulate Studio

  • I only see positive impact since it is a very easy to use tool for rapid learning. The only point is to know what is possible to develop using this tool to avoid any kind of frustration afterwards.
  • Another positive impact is that we don't need a diversified development team. There is no need of technical professionals, and a creative instructional designer is enough to develop effective learning content using Studio.
  • The third positive impact is that Studio makes possible to realize short-term projects, mainly when there's already a PowerPoint presentation.

SAP Litmos

  • The reporting we are able to extract from Litmos is amazing and has saved us tons of man hours.
  • SAP Litmos is extremely user friendly and our associates like logging in because of this.
  • The limitations of the assignment feature has had an impact on the Operations Training Team and the system administrator because of the removal and the assignment functionality.
