    I use Captivate to create interactive eLearning materials for different phases of learning process

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support

    I can make an interactive multimedia lesson very quickly; a lesson with a menu to different sessions (linking objects to different sections is the key); and not necessarily the links have to be texts. So you can have an iconical or metaphorical menu.My students get the main benefit of my use of Captivate

    Pros

    I useCaptivate to animate multimedia materials in which a character presents information at a corner of the screen, and his/her voice is heard while texts, graphs, and illustration appear and disappear on screen. This means, audio is most important, and therefore I can use my creativity generating subtitles which users can read in case they have problems with audio, so that they get the information just posing their mouse over the character´s image, for instance. Mouse-over effect isideal forhiding information on screen, and making the learner to interact with material. Another important feature for me is the possibility to have a space where learner can write information while having a lesson. Making tutorials for applications and software is very easy, as well as for teaching how to complete a process (the how of learning. Tests are also easy to build. And the time-line helps me save a lot of time when developing.

    Cons

    The fact that I have to upload four different files to a folder in order to link to the executable, so this can be seen by the learners on my vortual room is a bit tedious.

    Pros

    I like how easy it is to organize and upload content. I can easily add and remove users on the platform and can easily manage content.

    Cons

    Customer support is frustrating as there is a lot of back and forth with discussions and every release tends to break feature rather than improve on existing.

    We have used it to make video tutorials about the processes and new tools that we use in the company

    Pros

    The best thing is that it captures screen and allows to do simple editions on the recorded content. Texts, mouse, etc.

    Cons

    exporting it to other formats is a bit difficult. Like the compatibility with previous versions. But overall, everything went well

    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.

    Cons

    Wish It was worth the subscription price but since I do not need to constantly upload new training content, there was no need.

    In our use of Captivate, we found the software simple and easy to use, however it requires some R&D

    Ease-of-use

    Pros

    Adobe is int lead when it comes to Learning Management Software (LMS). We primarily used this software to create interactive learning modules. These modules were based on various presentations that we wanted to convert from PowerPoint to something more interesting. Needless to say that Adobe delivered. The software allowed us to record our actions which allowed our end users to follow our directions step-by-step. Similar to other LMS, Adobe allows users to narrate our lectures and add closed captioning for those who prefer reading directions. Lastly, the output quality of the videos is top notch, which is unsurprising for a company such as Adobe.

    Cons

    The system requires some research and development to get started. The more simple tools are not hard to understand, however, if you are trying to be creative it requires either a course or a lot of Google searches. As great as the closed captioning option is, from a design standpoint, they do not look as good as they could. Lastly, trying to set up quizzes and export them for use is quite frustrating, the file formats are not backward compatible.

    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.

    I think that this is a great approach to having ideas from staff being put into the roll of training others that will come after them, into similar rolls.

    It takes a long time to get all of the tutorials up and running to the way that you like them. Sometimes I wonder if I am too critical.

    I think that there are really no programs like this one, in the world of reaching people within the company with quick or lengthy tutorials.

    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.

    Ability to do so much with training/videos. Appreciate the partnership they have with Learning Brothers...it really adds value to the product.

    Not intuitive. I usually upload a PowerPoint file and it doesn't always come across correctly, which requires a lot of back and forth between the two products.

    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.
