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.

Fantastic tool..

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.

I've been using the program since Captivate 6 and there's not a whole lot of upgrade or improvements made to the newer versions. They typically lock-up my system, while others don't.

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.

Adobe Captivate Prime is a great choice for your learning environment. It can be worth the price if you use all the features.

Pros

Learners can keep close track of their learning and be notified from time to time. Allows you to choose only relevant notifications and have too much showing up on the home pages.

Cons

Mobile apps and more video tutorials needed.

Good solid solution to all your Learning, Training needs.

Pros

Adobe captivate Prime gives you a simple and intelligent solution for deploying elearning modules, presentations, learning plans and also keeping enhance the user engagement. Adobe Captivate Prime should be the foremost choice as the wealth of functionality that it provides is excellent when you compare it with other LMS tools available in the market. The "Fluidic player" that Prime has the ability to play MP4, PPTXs,, Adobe Captivate or Adobe Presenter projects, DOCX, SCORM or AICC packages. With this the adminstrator or the curator can add notes at any point to their content.

Cons

The modern user interface is extremely advanced, but cannot be considered intuitive. Smaller organizations (that does not boast of bigger audience size) might hesitate going for the captivate prime experience as it is costly compared to the other LMS tools available. Also, the interface might be little tough to master as experimenting with the software is a definite step needed to master it.

For a multi-learner environment, Adobe Captivate Prime is good, it is most useful for organizations where learners are remotely located and need a virtual learning environment.

Pros

I like the learner-first-approach in Adobe’s Prime LMS. The design is centered around the user. Its nice to see the feedback loop on course effectiveness which is based on tests and manager feedback. Cloud based model, security and disaster management are other key parameters that makes it rank higher than other LMSs.

Cons

It is cloudbased so it needs connectivity for most features to work. However, offline and sync facility is available when not connected.

It's a useful tool that helps learner easily track their progress. Easy to navigate across screens. There is scope for making the learning process a little more horizontal by making peer sharing more fluid.

Pros

To understand and capture the learner's feedback, there are course effectiveness and ratings. Whether the learning meets the objectives and how well the learners progress - all these can be captured in the LMS

Cons

Social connecting and peer sharing can be made better in this LMS
