N/A
Pros

The traditional captivate program is a robust yet increasingly dated e-learning authoring tool, and prime represents a solid effort to provide a more accessible and manageable platform for e-learning. The feature set is quite robust, and will be quite intuitive if you have a background with the older captivate products.

Cons

Compared to other products like Articulate, Captivate Prime seems like a little too late of an effort to take over the web-based e-learning authoring tool market. The interface will be a bit clunky if you are not familiar with adobe products.

Its good that it allows integration with Adobe connect and captivate authoring tool.
There are options to integrate with thirdparty course content like Getabstract, Lynda etc.. which increases your content library.

Cons

Doesn’t currently have facility to buy and sell courses on the tool. This will be good for smaller players.

This is for beginners in the online course hosting world. Not quite ready for school.

Pros

Adobe products are usually pretty good for the working professional. Current looking interface. Self-contained server for learning modules.

Cons

Not enough real-life features for professional use. IS NOT SCORM compliant. They allow SCORM but don't have the tool set to support actual SCORM. The tech team was stumped by our Fortune 100 clients requirements.

Pros

Adobe Captivate prime has a really simple administration panel which makes the administration functions really easy to handle. Also it allows you to monitor the students progress throughout the course.

Cons

The only con I found it's that in order to upload content you need to use an user called "author" which is the only one allowed to create courses. Nevertheless it can be a nice way to organize permissions on the platform.

Pros

Captivate prime offers an easy to use interface well suited to employee training. It provides a flexible approach to learning/training creation while also providing gamification or similar learning plan designs expected of a modern learning management system. I found the interface easy to work with and was able to quickly create trainings for my professional development initiatives. The mobile friendly approach is key to engage faculty or others whose time is limited.

Cons

Although this tool holds some wonderful features, ease of use will have you trading some of the higher powered features you would see in a traditional learning management system. This may not be a significant "con" - I would recommend captivate prime for professional development and similar trainings, but likely wouldn't recommend it for traditional or blended classroom experiences.

Pros

the graphical interface, the multiple options that it offers you, how easy it is to use it, in short "an experience for the user".

Cons

few own options for communication, integration or socialization among the participants, is not decisive, but increases the cost and complexity at the time of putting together an interactive training.

In short, it was simply terrible, and I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

Pros

You have unlimited storage space for courses/modules, etc.

Cons

This product iss clearly NOT created by Adobe; it was obviously purchased and Adobe slapped their label on it. I have been working in Photoshop since version 1, and there is a clear architecture and functionality to Adobe properties, all of them are exempt with Adobe Captivate Prime. It is cumbersome, unstable, and takes FOREVER to create a learning plan. In addition, their support will lead you down endless rabit holes that have not exit. It's really that terrible.

The benefits of the program were soon outweighed by the amount of money and time/effort it took to produce a product we were happy with. Overall, it's not a horrible product. For someone who knows what they're doing (I only knew what I wanted, and was only mildly adept at using the product), I could see it being a valuable product to LMS work. In my company's instance, this was not the case.

Pros

The software itself served the purpose for which we purchased it. It has great functionality and export/custom options that allow you to do what you need.

Cons

The least impressive element about the software was how difficult it was to use. Unlike some other Adobe programs (which some may say are not very intuitive), this program required a lot of prior knowledge about logic/a programming mindset. The mix between Adobe Edge Animate/Muse and Microsoft Powerpoint made it a bit cumbersome to understand.

Several people on our team tried to use it for educational purposes, and everyone ended up using other software in the end because it just takes so long to design. Some templates or pre-made designs would be helpful in speeding up the development process.

Pros

Highly customizable option for developing e-learning material. Lots of different options, functions, and ways to engage audience. Good suggestions for best use of different options.

Cons

I would have expected e-learning material to take about 2x as long as developing power points, but it is much longer than that. The learning curve is greater than that of Photoshop. The interface is not intuitive for users of other Adobe products.

When you report glitches on basic functions you get bombarded with requests for screenshots etc to help them fix the issues. Has the potential to be a great LMS but basic operation failures and back end glitches cause much frustration and wasted time.

Pros

easy to upload modules and invite users

Cons

Constant glitches with reports - not pulling information properly, You can reset progress on individual courses but as soon as the courses are loaded to a learning program you can no longer reset a learner if they fail a quiz. You have to nominate them to do the individual course as a work around.

It feels like Adobe immediately after you open it. It is software for professional designers, but the quality of the results are the ones of a pro.

You can control lots of settings and features.

Cons

As I mentioned in the "pros" section. The problem for us was that we are not professional designers so it took us a while and lots of tutorials after to figure it out how to use it. If you have some experience with Adobe products, it helps.

We were looking for a product to create Spanish e-learning courses, so we needed a foreign keyboard feature to allow students to add their answers using Spanish characters.

Apparently there is no such a feature yet, so we decided to not go ahead with Captivate for this project.

It really made our internal assessments and training modules pop. Previously we used to have trainees not very interested in following up after a session. This saw interactivity rates go really high.

Pros

We used this to create "Exams" for our internal training modules. I really liked how easy it was to create a quiz and tag it to our existing study modules. The asset store is a phenomenal idea and gives you access to hundreds of ready made templates you can use to create your assessments. It also lets you create chained questions very easily. You can add audio to your modules and it even lets you capture keystrokes and texts. So its excellent if you are looking for training on Coding and software. I also hear at some point they plan on adding VR support. That would be a killer feature if they can embed it.

Cons

Its heavily packed with features and unfortunately some of the more advanced ones are buried in the interface. It is incredibly powerful but be ready to spend time learning it if you want to get the most out of it.

I would highly recommend this for everything from basic to in-depth learning system operations. It can help low-priority training modules get out the door, and it can really help higher-level training modules shine if you are willing to invest the time.

Pros

I really appreciate the commitment to the end-user that Adobe has implemented in Captivate. I have found many of the upload features to be incredibly helpful, and have realized a lot of time saving in lower-need training modules by simply uploading existing PowerPoint docs.

Cons

A lot of my issues were solved in the most recent release. Specifically, the accessibility to the common user and the uploading of the PowerPoint docs.
