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.

Synergy Education Platform

It is well suited for all K-12 education systems that are looking for effective ways to improve and streamline their information. It would not be as useful for a college or a university system as it does not have the complexity needed in order to carry out all of the specific functions that a university system would need.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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!

Support

Based on 2 answers
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

Alternatives Considered

Wondershare is the only other comparable piece of Learning authoring that I have used and it did not measure up in terms of the amount of options that are available for configuration. Wondershare had 2 or 3 things that it did very well, whereas Articulate Studio did all of those same things and more. In the powerpoint plugin eLearning space, Articulate Studio is King.

Synergy Education Platform seemed to be just as affordable as the software options that offer similar solutions but individually. Synergy Education Platform helps bring all of that data that is needed together in the same space for one lower and flat rate which has been incredibly useful for our organization. I would continue to use this product over the products of competitors
