Overall Satisfaction with iSpring Suite

We use iSpring Suite to create and convert presentations for our online courses. We selected this product because of its capability to make 100% HTML5 based content without any reliance on Flash since the latter technology is becoming obsolete. iSpring is used mostly for our online courses. The finished lecture presentations integrate seamlessly with our Blackboard learning environment.
  • As mentioned before, generated content is purely HTML5 based which makes it future proof and mobile friendly.
  • Great opportunities for interactive content.
  • Easy to add and manipulate audio within the presentation.
  • Screen capturing leaves much to be desired. This functionality is still very basic.
  • Reduced time spent related to customer support for lecture functionality. With iSpring generated presentations, we hardly have to help students load them.
  • Online lectures are now mobile-friendly, which is a major improvement for students on the go.
We selected iSpring Suite specifically for the 100% HTML5 content. While Captivate and Presenter may offer more interactive features, they still rely somewhat on Flash elements (or used to anyway). When we tried out iSpring Suite for the first time, the cost and time savings became apparent. We no longer worry about major browsers stopping their support of Flash in 2020. Our students still will be able to access their lectures and view them both on a regular computer and on mobile
iSpring Suite is a fantastic tool for creating learning presentations that have to be ADA compliant. The presentations can have animations, audio, notes/transcription, and even interactive elements to enhance learning. The end user can highlight specific parts of the presentation on their end, which is a very interesting feature. Presentations integrate seamlessly with Blackboard. We used to have issues with flash content loading correctly, but since switching to HTML5 and with the help of iSpring Suite, we no longer encounter those problems.
