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.

Tovuti LMS

We have employees of varying IT expertise, and Tovuti was an easy switch for all of them. It had easy to use interfaces, obvious options, and no hidden settings pages. Managers of all levels of experience will be able to jump right into Tovuti and use it to its fullest

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!

  • Tovuti is very customizable. You can change everything from the color of the home page to when a course can be accessed.
  • The interactive content are creative and make our trainings unique.
  • It is easy to use the virtual classroom tool to meet and conduct trainings.

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.

Tovuti LMS

  • The virtual classroom should have a feature where participants can wait in a waiting room instead of being let in instantly.
  • The virtual classroom presenter mode needs some work. The screen does not share for long and gives an error message frequently.
  • The virtual classroom link should have an option where a time does not have to be added.

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!

Our administrators who chose not to participate in their trainings have had to get some assistance from those of us who did engage with the up-front learning, meaning some elements aren't above and beyond intuitive in where the features are housed, but for those who learned from their staff it's been great.

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

Customer support is probably one of the big benefits of Tovuti. It is clear that they care and they are trying to build something great that will be adapted by more and more companies and providing excellent customer support my authors has gone a long way to ease their minds to "learn something new" (how to use the LMS).

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.
Mark Nowowiejski | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tovuti LMS

Tovuti offered a virtual classroom, the interactive content, and did not impede on our intellectual property rights. Their development team is also interested in growing with us, pushing the envelope on what is possible for virtual learning. That was an important point.

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.

Tovuti LMS

  • We have the ability to make money again after COVID-19 closures made gatherings unavailable
  • Our content is being consumed in a different way and is available to a wider audience.
  • The virtual classroom gives us the personal feel that our business is dependent on.
