Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Captivate Prime

Currently, I am testing Adobe Captivate Prime functions as an LMS for two reasons; the first one to test it within the World Languages Department by creating content for students who are studying asynchronously. Secondly, I use it for internal employee training to create pedagogical materials for teachers in the department in order to improve teaching strategies and network.
  • It allows management to see employee / student progress.
  • It's intuitive and easy to use.
  • It allows users to create content fast and easy.
  • Easy to upload content.
  • Transferring content form other LMS using SCORM is not always optimal.
  • The learning transcript can be difficult to locate, especially with many active users.
  • The user reporting feature is limited; I wish it could have more customizable options.
  • Asynchronous learners are happy with the course content and overall mobile-friendly UI.
  • Good value for money, compared to other LMS.
Adobe Captivate Prime is easy to work with; I created content in a couple of hours. The following day I shared the course with colleagues and was ready to use and start collecting data. The single-page layout is very helpful and easy to navigate as a user which provided positive feedback.
As the Instructional Designer, I was not involved in the purchasing of Adobe Captivate Prime; however, I provided pricing information from the website to the human resources department and was told that the pricing was great for the type of LMS; we are currently testing it to see if we'll continue using it for future projects.
The help center and community forums are great places to get exceptional support when dealing with questions and troubleshooting issues. It does a good job in creating social networking interactions and learn from other users. The live chat function is also very good, and they are quick to answer any doubts you may have.
Customer Education
It depends on the end use you'd like to give it. Articulate 360 is easier to use compared to Adobe Captivate Prime. It has a similar feel to it and has many authoring options. In my opinion, Articulate 360 can be used by novice users who aren't as experienced in creating content.
I think Adobe Captivate Prime is well suited for more experienced instructional designers who work closely with SMEs. Although some aspects of it are easy and intuitive, other more advanced options are not so clear for beginners. If you are a new ID or instructor looking to create training course materials; it might not be the best option as there are easier tools to use such as Articulate 360.
