Complicated software

Even though, I've tried harder to get things done with Captivate, I had to quit and install a LMS plugin on my website. I believe Adobe has to work more in order to create an user-friendly platform.

Pros

The interface and features are good. You can add images, videos, easily.

Cons

At the time of adding documents or additional material for reading, things get complicated. You have to create individual lessons for each document you want to upload.

Good Software, not user friendly

I enjoyed creating things with Capitvate, but I would have to consider whether I want to spend that much money for those functions.

Pros

I liked the functions of this software.

Cons

I don't like the fact that it wasn't very intuitive. You had to take some tutorials in order to figure out how to make it work

Pretty good

Pros

I like that it's part of the Adobe Family and connects with other programs. Work flow is pretty good.

Cons

I don't like the cost. I think it should be part of the Master Collection.

Always Improving & Easy to get Started

Great experience especially with account representative. They offer a personalized way to help with contracts and the system itself. Easy to get started and lots of customization possible.

Pros

Always improving and easy to get started. Lots of features to the program and customization as well as organization.

Cons

Just like any other cloud based system, there are hiccups. Adobe is always improving on this, but sometimes clients that are not familiar with cloud based systems don’t understand why.

Even a salesman could do this....

Solved the quandary of providing in-house videos without worrying about security of putting them on firm network.

Pros

Simple! Can load videos straight into LMS without reverse engineering the optimal dimensions, format, bitrate, to name a few.
We used Adobe Connect for 10 years, same great support.

Cons

You’ll waste a lot of time Trying to figure it out yourself. Need a support person to show you the shortcuts, when to produce with Prime or just Captivate.

Adobe Captivate Prime

I was never able to use it for what we intended to use it for, the learning curve was way too high.

Pros

It seemed to have a lot of variety and looked like it would be very beneficial for our needs

Cons

I found it very hard to pick up the software, understanding how to best use it. Tutorials were difficult to follow and there was not a lot of helpful input from customer service.

Perceptions about Prime

The area of ​​online education is growing exponentially in Brazil but there are no LMS compatible with all realities. The use of PRIME would be very useful, also to design the own tool Captivate, still little known here.

Pros


Interface, functionalities, how the courses are structured

Cons

The price is very high for the school reality in Brazil. Courses would have to be very expensive to just hire.

Adobe Captivate Prime

With Adobe Captivate, we have been able to quickly create responsive training courses for our employees. The tools that Captivate provides a layer of engagement that previous training courses lacked. The incorporation of Fluid Boxes has been instrumental in creating training for our employees to take on their mobile devices so that they can access it at anytime from anywhere.

Pros

I like the ability to customize and add javascript to allow for custom interactions. There are a lot of free tools and templates that have helped me to create courses with more engaging techniques. The integration of other adobe apps like Photoshop also help greatly to speed up my workflow and processes.

Cons

Finding support for more custom and advanced features can be difficult as the user base isn't as larger as other Adobe products.

Good software

It was a good experience.

Pros

This software is awesome for creating instructional modules and rich activities. If you want to create the best online courses this is it.

Cons

I don't like the subscriptions model because I don't always have projects that uses this software, and find it somewhat expensive. I would probably be ok with it if the monthly cost is lower or if you could by short term access (say 90 days y no expiration of created content).

Expensive Neglected Adobe Product

Several years ago it was great. Today, not so much.

Pros

When Adobe Flash was supported, I liked to build simulated demos for my sales force. Although an HTML5 option was added to those simulation exports, it was not reliable on Google Chrome web browsers. We cancelled the product since no improvement has been made in a few years with our core use case.

Cons

Cluncky UX - many tiny property setting are hidden and require a zillion clicks on each slide to find them and set consistent theme or remove default mouse click sounds.

Industry Standard that works nicely with Adobe CC

I have worked with Captivate in making eLearning.

Pros

I think that Abobe Captivate is best because it is effectively the industry standard. While Articulate is, in my opinion a better individual product, Captivate is a better buy for someone who uses or is familiar with Adobe CC.

Cons

I think that, like many legacy adobe products, Captivate is not as intuitive as Articulate. I'm biased here, but I think that Adobe tends to expect experts to use their product...so for users who have to jump and out of the too infrequently, the learning curve is steeper.

Good for big corporations, not for the small entrepreneur.

I was attracted to Adobe as a complete subscription. I have a blended learning school. My goal was to create courses with Captivate and host everything on Captivate Prime along with the live classes. However, I felt there was no interest from Adobe to have me as a client, so I just moved on.

Pros

The interface was very clean and organized. It was easy to figure it out, easy and intuitive to set up. It was easy to customize and easy to work with.

Cons

I found it was a bit naked. I was looking for a complete solution with e-commerce and everything together which Captivate Prime did not offer unless you added other apps. This would increase the cost. I felt the software was being marketed for big companies and enterprises. I even called to understand if Captivate and Captivate prime were the same thing and the lady whom I spoke with told me my company was too small for what they were offering, which was quite disheartening.

Easy to Use and Affordable

I'm still just getting set up, but I see Captivate being a huge asset to our company. I will be able to spend so much more time researching and creating learning programs because I won't be spending all my time managing spreadsheets. Captivate will improve the learner experience as well.

Pros

The software is very intuitive and easy to use. I was able to get a lot of it set up before my implementation call. The amount of time I will save is going to be amazing! The price point is very affordable. The minimum users is only 100, which is really nice for smaller companies.

Cons

Juggling between all the different levels (admin, author, instructor, etc.) was clunky. This may just be because we're a small company, so I fill all those roles and have to do a lot back and forth. But it would be nice if there was a level that just had access to do everything.
