Pros: I've been using the software for almost a year and it is incredibly user-friendly. Being simple doesn't mean few features. It's packed with lots of great features, yet they made it very easy for someone to buy the program and get started without having to read a manual how to use it, like some of the other course maker programs. Right out of the box you can get started. Their fantastic content library if you are doing interactions where people have to think through situations, they also offer lots of great background templates which I've used and presentation designs if you're not too sure how to design your PowerPoint, or just aren't good at it and want some help. They make a lot of great resources if you get the full suite? Even without the full suite, the program itself is just too easy to work with. Once I was ready to upload the program, all I have to do is click the button Publish, and the conversion and upload to place. No FTP or anything else involved. Once it uploads, it brought me to the online host of the course, allowing me to rename it to make other additions to tell the user what the course is about.

I also like that there are so many different options for creating quizzes, tests, and survey questions that are not graded. Additionally, I love the fact that they offer so much in their help section, all of the regular webinars that they host, and the massive library of help available on YouTube and their website. I find their customer service absolutely excellent

Cons: While other programs may offer more interaction options, I think for the average to somewhat advanced user, iSpring is top notch. I can't really call it a negative because in order to do all these other advanced features, I've seen them but I have absolutely no idea how to utilize their features. That would take a lot of learning on my part, and I don't have the time to learn and intricate program. I needed to hit the ground running, and iSpring did just that.

As I type this, I realize the section is meant for Cons, but there really isn't any to speak of.

Pros: Ease of Use - The fact that iSpring Suite integrates directly into Power Point makes life so much easier for us.

Excellent for New Trainers or Content Developers - The ease of use made this purchase an excellent decision for us. Our company's training department was founded only 4 years ago. After the first few years we wanted to step it up a notch by developing interactive modules that would help us diversify the way we deliver content. iSpring made this possible and very easy. Not only is the software extremely easy to understand, iSpring also offers regular workshops to its users that help any new content developer master the Suite and strengthen their ability to create interactive modules that stand out.

Excellent Customer Service - Very quick to respond to any questions and the staff is very friendly. They are also very receptive to feedback and look to make improvements to their product often based on such.

SCORM Compliant - Convert all of the content created with the Suite into a SCORM Compliant packages for your LMS. The SCORM export supports Flash & HTML5. You also have the ability to adjust the export quality of the media in your module. Lastly, iSpring modules can also be viewed via mobile & offline using their iOS or Android app. Reporting works flawlessly.

Quiz Maker is Amazing - It has all the essentials you need + more. I got to play around with Version's 9 Quiz Maker also and already witnessed many improvements from aesthetics to performance.

Cons: Version 8's Module Player for Exported E-Modules didn't always behave the same way as the Power Point presentation would on its own. Various media items or features in Power Point, such as Gif Images, overlapping audio files, or "exciting" animations/transitions, although supported, would at times behave differently in the Suite's Module Player (used for LMS Delivery) vs. the Power Point itself.

Version 8 Quiz Maker's Document Recovery never worked for us (if there was even one). The quiz maker doesn't have an "auto-save" feature. Sometimes if you imported any extraneous media file the quiz maker would crash making us lose our progress from the last manual save. We eventually got in the habit of saving frequently, as anyone should, but a revamped document recovery feature would be helpful.

Overall: It helped us move our training programs forward. As content developers AND trainers, the iSpring Suite really made things a lot easier for us. We were also new to the concept of interactive content development, so we were thrilled to witness that iSpring was extremely easy to learn and start using. We feel there is much more for us to do with it, which is why we are looking forward to acquiring Version 9 soon.

Pros: What I like most about this software is that it is an add on for powerpoint, so if you are familiar with powerpoint then it is not very difficult to learn. I did have to teach myself how to use the iSpring Suite tab, but the customer support team makes the process easy! My Customer Care Manager, Max Ionin, provided me with access to many training videos and was always available on email if I ever had the slightest question. The other pro that separated iSpring from other LMS softwares is they built a special custom plan for my company that fit our needs, what great customer service!

Cons: I really have had a positive experience with this software, but I am going to provide you some things I hope to see updates on in the future. The number one improvement I want iSpring to make in the very near future is MAC COMPATIBILITY. I work on the marketing team so I have to use a Mac, and for iSpring Suite I had to order a windows computer which made it 10 times harder for me since I have no idea how to use windows. I figured out a loop hole for me, where I create my content on powerpoint using my Mac, and any content I need to create using the iSpring Tab I switch over to the windows computer. However, that really slows down my productivity. The second thing I don't really like is when you create a quiz in the iSpring Suite tab, it brings you to a pop up where you create the quiz there instead of directly in powerpoint. I don't know if there would be a way to even fix this, but it gets confusing for me when update/edit the powerpoint on my Mac, send it to the windows computer, and have to add the quiz back in the edited version. I know my situation is different, but I am just providing insight to my experience. Overall I love this software, but the reason I gave 4 stars to "ease of use" was simply because I couldn't have the software on my MAC computer.

Overall: Well, I have been using the software for only a couple months so it has not been long enough to see the benefits from this software.

Pros: Ease of use, focus and quality of features, fair pricing and outstanding customer support and engagement.

Cons: Template storage and reuse could be better. Versioning would be a great next step.

Overall: I've been using iSpring Suite for 3 years now. As with a lot of my software purchases, my interest in this tool was spurred by frustration with the previous tools I had used. Previous software in this category had consistently fallen short in very significant ways. Even 3 years ago, iSpring Suite remedied all those issues for me; but not content to rest on their laurels, they have actively and substantially improved their product over and over again. I can't remember the last time I needed to fire up Captivate or Storyline. iSpring has replaced them at a fraction of the cost.

This suite is a bundle of useful tools centered around an application that lets you turn existing PowerPoint presentations into web AND mobile friendly eLearning solutions that communicate with LMSs incorporating the well documented SCORM and AICC standards, iSpring's own LMS or as is often the case for me, a hand-rolled custom solution.

Audio and Video synchronization with slides, one of the most tedious parts of this work, is made effortless by iSpring's thoughtful and robust interface. Animations implemented in PowerPoint are duplicated and rendered seamlessly in the final product. Quiz creation is a snap. Player customization is easy. Everything you need is here. As a web developer for over 20 years, I could do a lot of this work from scratch; but only at great cost in time and other resources. iSpring frees me up to focus on the jobs that really require those skills. My clients are consistently impressed with the output.

One final word on the subject: iSpring is so well done, I have rarely had need of their support for anything; but on the two occasions in 3 years that I have had an inquiry - their responses have been prompt, courteous, professional and most importantly, effective. iSpring really engages with their users in a meaningful way to continually improve existing features, add new requested features and make my life as a content creator and developer better. I give this software and the company behind it my highest recommendation.

Recommendations to other buyers: It helps to know and understand a little about LMS standards.

Pros: Easy to use. Integrated with PowerPoint which is an existing skill with lecturers. LMS staff and programmers do not edit content. Creates distributable SCORM compliant packages that beginners can easily upload.

The export function looks very useful (I don't know how often I have lost files), as does the resources and presenters section (but I didn't have time to explore what they are for.) I barely scratched the surface. But the client, lecturers and students all agreed the end result was professional. Conversions can be done in minutes in multiple formats - programmed HTML5 takes days and is often unstable on mobile.

The price is very reasonable for the functionality (it is only high due to my country's dollar rate).

Cons: Not much and I am usually very critical.

I only have a trial version so I haven't tried to create "real world" packages (clients get very fussy about strange details, and that is when you suddenly discover something is not possible). You provided options that I never thought of, but that I think clients and students will find useful.

It would be nice if one could specify a range to export more specifically - e.g. slides 1-6, or 2,5,7 (as with printing). I assume I would create multiple presentations and hide slides.

The look of the player skin was a problem, so I programmed the finished file via CSS, and only found out later I can adapt the skin - after I showed the software to the client! However, they thought the universal one was good (although it didn't fit well into their LMS template). I think with the offered customization I could probably solve most problems.

Overall: [Note: this review less about the software (which is so intuitive it doesn't need explaining) and more to assist other eLearning content creators. I struggled through forums for days to find a solution to embedding Powerpoint into Moodle! I tried a dozen other methods and software and this is the one that works.]

BACKGROUND

I create content for eLearning systems, and a major limitation is that PowerPoint slides cannot be EMBEDDED (Microsoft is proprietary software). PPS files need to be downloaded, which isn't user-friendly, trackable or secure.

Moodle course creators have traditionally had to use Slideshare or Google Docs to convert powerpoint to HTML5, but iSpring doesn't compromise intellectual property security or require internet access.

The lecturers like iSpring because they know and use PowerPoint already for lectures, and can even include background music, an audio track and video. (There is a pro iSpring product to help with all including branching, but I only used the smaller converter). The course creators like it because they don't have to mess with lecturer's content, and it takes less than a minute to convert into one of the 5 options.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE BEST

WEB

I recommend the iSpring converter "HTML5 for mobile option" that shows on an attractive player. (Although it could do with some extra skins!) You get a zipped file for fast uploading. It's fully interactive, and you can permit people to jump back/forward to slides (with thumbnails), links all work (for branching) as does automatic slide timing, integrated audio (no clicking a link). Basically a PowerPoint show on steroids.

[iSpring also offers Flash like other products, but Flash doesn't play on any Apple product and is blocked by many browsers.]

LMS

For professionals, the BEST choice is a conversion for LMS - that turns the presentation into a zipped Scorm-compliant package. The content has all the bells and whistles of the web version, but can be uploaded on most LMS systems. Course creators and admins prefer Scorm as industry best practice. If you create learning content for sale, its ideal for easy distribution.

VIDEO

Although the iSpring converter for video is good, video as a format has issues. We have regional differences - even though only 1 of 30 slides is different, we have to create and load a dozen different videos each time the lecturer makes a change. The students hate video - too SO slow and jerky.]

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the good work.

Pros: Easy to use, stable and reliable, inexpensive, built-it quiz results output, ability to collect and report additional user data

Cons: Needs more global formatting capability, e.g. master slides; inability to send e-mail results to quiz takers; and no built-in PDF certificate

Overall: Over the last 8 years we have been running a free educational website for nurses around the world. By far, the most popular component of LearningNurse.org has been our 160 nursing quizzes with over 12,000 questions. We used several different programs to develop and post these flash-based quizzes.

However, with greater usage of mobile devices, and the decline/concerns about Adobe Flash, we began looking for quiz software that would meet the current needs of our clients. We had been aware of iSpring Quiz Maker for some time but didn't feel it met all of our requirements. That is, until iSpring 8.1 came out. After careful evaluation of the various main-stream quiz development software, we choose iSpring Quiz Maker as our choice for now and the future. It took us about a month to reprogram and repost all of our quizzes.

There are many reasons why we like iSpring QM. The software is well designed and easy to use. It took no time for us to get up to speed to use all of its features. It gives you a choice of publishing to Flash or HTML5 or both. We now only publish to HTML5. With the iSpring Play apps, our quizzes work well on all browsers, tablets and smart phones. Using the Play apps, our quizzes can be downloaded for off-line use. This provides us a very effective and inexpensive way to make our educational resources available as "apps".

iSpring QM handles different media well. This increases our flexibility and creativity to develop more engaging and interesting interactive learning materials.

Finally, QM has a built-in capability to send quiz results to our server. We do NOT use an LMS, but do like to track all quiz results for monitoring and research purposes. It was relatively easy to set up a PHP script to receive the quiz results and insert them into a MySQL database table.

One short-coming of QM is that it lacks a Certificate feature. Fortunately, we were able to have an independent programmer set up a system for us that uses the PHP data to create a PDF Certificate that can be printed, downloaded and saved. So far, our quiz system seems to be stable, reliable and a big hit with our various clients.

iSpring provides regular updates and enhancements to their software. They do listen to our feature requests. And, I have found their support to be very good and thorough. They take great pains to provide work-arounds if some features are missing.

In our opinion it is the best quiz development currently on the market!

Recommendations to other buyers: Give iSrping QM serious consideration if you have important and critical quiz applications.

Pros: It does what it says, it's clear to understand and their technical support via email and on the website popup is fantastic! I cannot fault it.

Cons: I cannot think of anything at this time in regards to the iSpring package I use. Maybe ask in 6 months when I have had time to explore eLearning, Quiz and features by learning from the seminars/presentations I regularly get from iSpring.

Overall: At first I was doubtful this program like others that claim to convert Microsoft Powerpoint to HTML5. From the first evaluation version and trying a document it was clear this was not like the others. It integrates lovely into Powerpoint 2013 as an option at the top.

I was impressed further after practice attempts of the options when I gave it a very large powerpoint 'program' of nested loops jumping from over a 1000 slides! with over 12K MP3 HQ audio files embedded. It converted all slides and sound files of them correctly and by adjusting the publishing controls improving the compatibility it converted the MP3 files down to 192bps and created copies of the sound files correctly in another format. Later once I learnt the basics without support I started looking at the conversions to run on tablets both Android and Apple. After buying the license for iSpring I trialed the iSpring cloud as this is nearly the only official way to play HTML5 content and save for offline viewing. Now I admit this was all new and I had to contact support via email.. I tried a smaller document over about 300 slides with less sound files primarily because it would be quicker to publish, upload to the cloud and then download to apple device so circa 340Mb presentation. It works straight away viewing from an iPhone 6S and an older iPad. I would not have managed to do this if it was not for Max iSpring Consultant on one of those 'pop up' windows whilst I was searching on their website for more information. I thought hmm it would be just one of those robot automated help options or it was out of office hours and would not reply quick like other sites. To my surprise it was a real person! Very impressed! problem solved and will be suggesting we explore more what iSpring products can do for our needs.

I have to thank the consultants Irina Chirkova I have been bouncing questions to and this evening approx. 8:30pm I was trying at home to figure out how my presentation could be downloaded on iPads in real time whilst I had someone next to me with an iPad and iPhone trying to make it work. Having the 24/7 real person who knew the software perfectly was able to help so I could the next day email colleagues letting them know it's working was fantastic!

Recommendations to other buyers: Read/study don't be afraid to ask questions as it really does save time. I also liked the forum/community section for interesting further reading. I consider myself a beginner as it has opened up many more possibilities to use in education and training.

Pros: 1. Easy usability

2. Ease access

3. Great range of functions and options

4. Easy to share online in various file formats at the same time, making it easier for students on different types of computers to use

5. Great for linking up audio-recordings of lectures with slides

6. Great for embedding videos into the slides

7. Incredibly useful for creating online tests and quizzes with many different options for types questions including multiple choice, true/false, best of five, etc.

Cons: None! It is really ideal for me and I am planning on using it on a long-term basis.

It is especially great for those of us who do not necessarily posses programming or web-based skills but still want to benefit form the ability to create slick, professional-standard and interactive online learning resources.

Overall: As an academic, I have found iSpring to be extremely useful and the ideal software package for my teachings, presentations and educational workshops.

I have been using iSpring since 2014. Initially, I started using it for my teachings and presentations in my former role as Senior Lecturer in Advanced Clinical Practice at Edge Hill University. I found the software extremely useful in enabling me to bring my PowerPoint teaching to life and in making them much more interactive and easy to access.

I was able to add in audio, video, interactive slides, quizzes and questions (with answers and feedback) and crucially, it enabled me to share all these online with my students.

My students found these iSpring enhanced PowerPoints and teachings incredibly useful, to the extent that some of my shared teachings and online quizzes were access and re-accessed hundreds of times by my students within the space of weeks.

What I found most useful about iSpring is the easy and dynamic way in which I can combine so many different forms of teaching and learning into one, succinct, organised and structured teachings. What I found most brilliant about iSpring, is the easy way in which it enables online sharing.

I have since started using iSpring in my new role as Senior Lecturer in Medical Sciences and Programme Director for Physician Associate Studies at University of Bradford. A heavy component of the course is online, distance learning and iSpring is brilliant in enabling me to create interactive lectures and teachings which I can share online.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for something that will enable you to make your teachings more exciting, more up-to-date, more interactive and more modern, the iSpring is the software that will allow you to do this with ease and efficiency.

Pros: 1. First and foremost its ease of use. Its unbelievably simple with the easiest learning curve. I couldn't realize how soon I became a pro iSpring user from a novice one.

2. Quick loading of HTML 5 courses in browsers even on low bandwidths. Sometimes I have noticed that courses published with iSpring Suite load even quicker than Youtube videos.

3. There is also a course size and compression option according to the low/high bandwidth choice which is unique.

4. Responsive layout of courses with automatic player skin resizing on the device. The player skins are also different for computers and mobile devices.

5. The most convenient narration manager and synchronization of audio and animations.

6. The best player layout in browser for mobile output.

7. Content protection features like setting expiry date and custom domain.

8. Best in class in built screen recording tool. No need of external capturing tools like Camtasia.

9. Simulation feature with 50:50 ratio of video and content going side wise in a slide.

10. Video publishing feature with which we can publish a PowerPoint presentation to HD videos and can also directly upload on Youtube.

11. Support for almost all PowerPoint animations. Other tools like Articulate Studio and Adobe Presenter don't support those many animations.

12. Detailed player customization options.

13. Ability to create independent offline content.

Cons: 1. Very few interactions. Should have ability to insert more interactions that can be customized in slides.

2. No ability to edit states of objects.

3. Should have an attentive and more active user community.

4. No free form & custom drag and drop in Quizmaker.

5. Its a PowerPoint add in and not a standalone software, hence obviously its inbuilt features specially for customizing and inserting new objects have to limited.

Overall: I am Nalin from New Delhi, India and I have a rich experience in E-Learning and developing Digital Content of over 8 years. Being in this domain, I have been working on and testing many softwares. E-Learning is a field where you get the taste of a variety of computer programs. Like graphic design, video production, sound editing, animation software etc. Out of them, the most important software is which can deliver the prepared content in the desired format accessible for the learners. I was always surrounded by the complications of programming and testing on platforms like Flash and .NET for content production but it was too much time consuming and involved plenty of unnecessary hard work. Complications like these reduced when I discovered purpose built tools like Adobe Captivate and Articulate. But all complications ended when I discovered iSpring Suite.

PowerPoint itself is an all in one surface when it comes to prepare raw E-Learning content. The only additional thing we required is that with which we can compile all the raw material in a solid Flash & HTML 5 content deliverable on our desired accessing devices. I tried various PowerPoint add ins like Wondershare, Adobe Presenter, Articulate Studio, Lectora Snap. But each one of them had its own shortcomings.

The one that turned out to be the best and perfect one was iSpring Suite. It supported almost all the PowerPoint animations. With Quizmaker, I was able to make separate customized tests for different chapters. The best thing which I experienced was the ease of inserting or recording audio narration for the slides and later synchronizing them with the animations. iSpring Suite proved to be a champion in delivering both online an offline content. We also used it to deliver offline content in CDs with maximum protection for piracy. The players customization options are incredible with which we can control the look and feel of the module player like its colors and text labels and it also has the ability to save the preset for later use. We also get the control over compression of course objects with which we can deliver it online keeping in mind the bandwidth at the learners' end so that its quick and easy to access on the internet.

Today, I am able to deliver E-Learning content for my firm and my clients to all kind of learning platforms and is really admired by the learners.

All I can say is, This software is really a result of high precision and perfect engineering.

Recommendations to other buyers: iSpring Suite is an excellent E-Learning development software specially when you thoroughly read and learn how to use it. Many people are always in a hurry and they don't take time to read the complete knowledge base and help articles related to that software and hence are unable to discover its hidden features and full benefits. iSpring is easy, its quick, its versatile and it is multi purpose. It is useful not only for producing digital content for educational purpose but also for other purposes like Digital Marketing for producing Digital Advertisements & Product Demos. And at that price, its really a steal. Apart from producing regular Flash & HTML 5 course modules, it can also be used for generating High Definition videos from PowerPoint. With iSpring Suite 8, we have the ability to make our E-Learning content reach a wide range of users on a variety of different platforms be it computers or mobile devices. With the latest updates, I have observed that the quality of the published content through iSpring has become even more enhanced. I personally recommend iSpring Suite as a must to have tool for every E-Learning developer in the world. If you have and you know well how to use PowerPoint, you will definitely find iSpring Suite as a key to success and a tunnel to deliver your rich Learning Content to any Digital Platform in the world.

Pros: 1) Ease of use, even for the production of didactic presentations with very complicated scripts and instructional designs.

2) Flexibility to "pack" the same interactive audiovisual object for all types of devices and operating environments with "1 click".

3) The high quality standard is achieved for multimedia presentations considering that we can very suitably adjust the settings of images, videos, audio and effects.

4) The excellent service and quick response technical support team. It's wonderful people with great human qualities and strong technical knowledge.

5) Has a fair selling price. In addition, iSpringsolutions provides reasonable discounts for upgrades to new versions.

6) We use iSpring Suite fun in our daily work. It's fun to build serious and delicate objects of learning and interactive communication presentations in the field of higher education, professional development of leaders of private enterprises, and training for technicians governmental organizations.

Cons: "The bee flies because she does not know you can not fly" (morphology and design contradicts all principles of aerodynamics); likewise, iSpring Suite is so powerful that many times we bring our computers to extreme limits of performance developed very complicated presentations ... The problem is not iSpringsolutions; the problem is our irrational claim that 1Gb :) is the same as 1 byte.

Smile (believe it or not) we did not find points against the level of development that has come iSprinsolutions with iSpring Suite and see that they have reached an very high fence to overcome.

Overall: We have adopted iSpring since 2007 (then the brand was "FlashSpring Pro"), after a thorough comparative analysis with authoring tools available. We are always attentive to developments in other products (including open source and online services), but every year we reaffirm that we are using the best available on the market; iSpring Suite.

Recommendations to other buyers: iSpring Suite is a tool of author "total"! Surprising, easy and powerful tool for creating learning scenarios and engaging interactive presentations for highly effective communication that can be adapted with a "click" to all devices and operating environments.

Pros: iSpring allows users the ability to create very specific branching. Branching can be created for both slide sequence AND for based on quiz results. I wish other development tools would take a visual cue from the iSpring `Presentation Explorer, as it is straightforward and easy to implement.

Publishing the content as HTML5 is seamless and looks great across several devices and platforms. The player `wrapper is clean, simple, and unobtrusive for the content inside.

Cons: Given my professional and academic background (animation, 3D models, simulations, & video games), I tend to try and stuff eLearning with enriched content, when possible. While iSpring does a great job customizing content in its various interactions and simulations, I'd like to see even MORE content types allowed inside. Specific examples of this: allow insertion of movies (MP4s) in the `Book' interaction; and animations/movies as background imagery in the `Simulation' interaction.

Some enhanced `skins' or styling of the `Timeline' interaction would be good to see, too.

Though to be fair: iSpring seems to have a very active update iterative cycle, so these and other additions may be forthcoming in a future version.

Overall: I've used iSpring to develop eLearning content at various levels of interactivity: standard eLearning, with general imagery and/or audio; enhanced, with customized media, content, and interactions; and complex, with extensive branching and highly-customized feedback.

iSpring works well and allows users to create eLearning (and other) content at any of these levels, without having to write a single line of code. Though it does not allow creation of 'triggers' at a global-level, like some other authoring solutions do. Yet the iSpring interactions, simulations, and quizzes do allow for very detailed, granular, and specific IFTTT ('if this, then, that') creation.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great tool for eLearning content development and allows non-coders the ability to create good-looking and very interactive content. Anyone familiar with PowerPoint can use iSpring to create very cool stuff.

Pros: The multitude of features, ease of use, engaging experience, no limits, and fair price.

Cons: None

Overall: I have had the wonderful opportunity to download iSpring Quizmaker 8 as a trial version and will submit that it is, hands down, the most powerful, feature-rich, and user friendly platform that I have ever used. I have used many different quiz making software programs and enjoy this one the most with respect to the features that come with the software, the delivery of the quizzes, and the ease of use. I had a few questions for customer support, which I find to be very professional and patient with me as I learn the many features of the program. Their response time to the requests that I submit are always within 24 hours of receipt. I especially like the fact that customer support welcomes feedback about their products to help them continually improve their current five-star product. I can't think of many new features that you would need to create a dynamic and engaging quiz. You have the ability to make your quizzes very fancy by uploading unlimited images, audio, video, and animations to keep the quiz taker entertained throughout your quiz. You can make your quizzes as simple or as fancy as you would like. I also like the fact that your quiztakers are able to take your quizzes as many times as they want, you can upload as many questions as you want, you can embed as many images, video, and media into your questions that you want, for one low license fee. Many testing programs require annual subscriptions, but that is not the case for Quizmaker 8. In terms of value, you are getting a feature packed program for a very fair price. I will guarantee the publisher of your quizzes will enjoy a very user friendly interface to create questions quickly (very quickly - very user friendly) and effectively and your quiz takers will enjoy a completely different testing experience when using this software. It is very engaging. This program has a multitude of different question types so whatever type of questions you are planning, this software has you covered. You are probably in the market for a new quiz creating software package. Look no further. I spent three weeks continually researching quiz creating software and I finally found the diamond in the rough. This is the one you need! This is a great company who is very responsive to any questions you may have, highly professional and pleasant to work with, and is eager to earn your business. Highly recommended!! Five stars in all categories!!

Recommendations to other buyers: Not at this time.

Pros: It is very easy to insert pictures with just a couple of clicks. My biggest joy is that I never had problems with inserting (and eventually working) videos into my quizzes. I do a lot of video quizzes and its a time saver. And the videos work across several platforms because my students use either a Mac OS, IOS, or PC. It even automatically corrects the "test paper" and emails to me the results automatically. My students know their mistakes, and grades "real time." And I have in my email inbox the documentation results. Its actually very easy to use, very intuitive. I have actually read the "user manual" very minimally.

Cons: What can I say bad about a good software? The iSpring Quizmaker lacks the "flexibility" of moving items around the slide. There are several layouts that you can choose but sometimes I have questions that need to have specific placements of the picture and questions and not to mention putting arrows to point at the item (or part) being questioned. There are some things that that I want to do with my questions, that I used to do when I used to use a PowerPoint file as my question platform in the past. That I miss, the flexibility and more features similar to PowerPoint software. Or maybe I need to read the user manual some more. I wish the Survey questions can be graded also.

Overall: Ease of use, to insert pictures and videos. And the videos are consistently working (unlike the other quiz makers that I have used).

Pros: It harneses all the power of Powerpoint, the output is much smaller than the original Powerpoint and publication in HTML5 makes it available on almost any platform, including iThings which cannot run Flash.

I use iSpring Suite 8 to make presentations of historical material, particularly of early printed books.

Separately, my organisation - to which I introduced iSpring some years ago - uses it to publish audio-visual educational material for physicians on the web for the benefit of doctors in many countries in addition to UK and to publish the slides and audio of presentations given to our History of Medicine Group.

For my own work I extend the use of some features beyond their original purpose; for example, I use the 'Outline' tabs to provide a simple search engine for some documents. I also use iSpring Flip as a means of producing galleries of images with thumbnails for navigation. This, published in HTML5, has replaced an earlier image gallery that I wrote in Flash.

The software is very easy to use at a simple level but is also capable of supporting considerable sophistication in using animation.

I have had to seek technical support on a number of occasions and have always had prompt and helpful responses - even on the rare occasions when a solution has not been found- I empasise these are rare, usually the problems have been solved.

Cons: I have very few complaints! I would like one or two additional features - more sophisticated text search in presentations and a search facility for the flipbooks.

Pros: I benefit most by its seamless interface with Powerpoint. The iCloud feature has also been particularly useful.

Also, the presentation resources feature is good.

Cons: The content library is extremely weak. It lacks cultural diversity and social relevance. Also the intergration of multiple quizzes's across a presentation prior to publication needs to be added.

Also, the Simulation feature character placement is too rigid, because it only supports a single figure that must always be in the same location.

The Presentation Resources feature does not allow for targeted or slide specific content relevance.

Overall: Overall I am extremely pleased.

Hi David,
Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate it a lot!

As per your cons, please see below:

We understand that usually, a learning course is a combination of slides and quizzes. Our developers designed a well-working automatic passing score calculation mechanics. Here is a detailed guide on it:
https://www.ispringsolutions.com/articles/calculation-of-a-passing-score-in-scorm

In the Presentation Resources, you can add, edit and delete references, file attachments. This feature is needed for filling your entire presentation with some additional information. If you want to complete any of your specific slides with this info you can insert a web object.

We recorded a short tutorial on our Custom Character Tool for you: https://ispri.ng/NnBzL

Hope that helps, and of course we are looking forward to receiving your email at support@ispringsolutions.com with the request for adding new characters to our library.

Pros: I've been using iSpring (especially QuizMaker) for a long time to make tests and exercises (I'm a teacher). I'm very satisfied with this product.

Its first advantage is how easy iSpring is to use. Since I am familiar with PowerPoint, I had no problems when I started working in iSpring, everything was clear even at the very beginning. The design is pleasant, too.

Secondly, the possibilites are really impressive: anything is possible to create, be it a simple multiple choice test or a complicated exercise with all sorts of questions, levels of difficulty, etc.

Thirdly, it's convenient to publish the tests either on one's site (html, flash) or in a Word file. I use both ways, and enjoy them both. My students tested the exercises on their computers and mobile devices (Apple and Android). There hasn't been a single complaint: it works on different platforms and devices.

Another good point is the possibility to customize the looks of the test. Maybe it's not the most important feature, but still, it allowed me to make the exercise look very natural on my site, in the same style, in the same colours.

Last but not least, customer support is very good. All the issues that I had (there were very few, really) were efficiently resolved. None of my questions were left without attention.

All in all, iSpring makes it possible for me to realize all my teaching ideas, so I regard it as one of my best investments and I'm certain I'll go on using it for a long time.

Overall: The ability to create all sorts of exercises necessary for my classes. It's one of my main instruments.

Pros: Interface is very pleasant and easy to understand the entire capability of the tool

Ease of use with MS PowerPoint

Simulations

Quizzes

Cons: Screen Recording. It is not so easy like other open-source tools we have used. If provision is given to save and edit the recording, we can add additional objects like call-outs, tool-tips, etc. This will enable the users to use iSpring to create MOOC based classes

Overall: In 2012, while serving as a Consultant for a Banking sector client, I was searching for a user-friendly tool to convert the MS PowerPoint presentation created by our team into HTMLS-5 version. I came to know about iSpring through an article in a e-learning blog. In my first attempt to use it, I felt there is something interesting in this tool. Later, when we were developing ILT materials for an educational institution, we purchased the Suite and found it more useful to create learner-centric activities. We also used live-classroom audio and other features such as quiz and simulations to add more elements to the course. Compared to other products, the cost and the ease using the tool made our content developers and academicians (subject-matter experts) to author best courses.

As an entrepreneur, my company uses and suggest my clients to have iSpring in their boutique of software. Wish to be associated and use this tool to create a better learning community.

Recommendations to other buyers: Penny spent on iSpring will yield 100% return in the quality of the content Best and wise option to invest in iSpring Special promotions and discounts for academic communities Easy to use as it is similar to MS PowerPoint

Pros: The ease of use and the possibility to edit all texts and illustrations to match our type of service. The choice of different question types are very appreciated by our instructors as well as our students. Our favorite in a complex technical environment is setting up one or more click sensitive areas on detailed pictures. Value for money is excellent.

Cons: There is nothing we do not like with this software. Minor issues we thought could be a problem was easily explained and solved by customer support.

Overall: Our organization has been using iSpring Quizmaker and Presenter for more than three years for producing a large numbers of basic and refresher e-learning courses for professional technical staff in aviation services. The basis are PowerPoint presentations, and the exam modules are integrated at the end of each module. The variety of question types and branching gives us a powerful tool to test and certify the knowledge of our candidates. After a long evaluation period we have based our e-learning training on this product, and the integration with our Learning Management System SCORM works very good.

Recommendations to other buyers: The customer support is impressively fast and most helpful. You get personal help to solve your case, not just a general link to a web page.

Pros: The nice part was that with this tool we could create 1) feedback and evaluation forms and 2) convert existing PPT in SCORM compatible content easily and with professional outcome in order to meet our deadline. Also the compatibility with the iSpring Learn was a key factor for this choice.

We still need to explore the other features/functionalities; which we will certainly do. There are quite some handy features/functionalities to explore.

Cons: With regard to iSpring Learn it would be good to have the option to self customize the look and feel a bit more.

Examples:

1) The image of the "Learning Path" image. Here we would like to add an image of the topic instead of the standard blue color.

2) Wording / terminology that would fit the corporate environment better

a) Rename "learning path" into "program"

b) Rename "course" into "module".

c) Quiz ==> Test/Feedback

3) Would be good to have a library like functionality for the customized e-mail notification messages . Now we store text files and copy the text when needed as a workaround.

4) The Android version allows you to download content for offline view and hence can conflict with Intellectual Propriety right and also commercial objectives. This really needs to be changed.

Overall: We are using this suite for converting part of our ILT into e-learning so that we can offer this training more or less instantly to participants all over the world at an acceptable cost. This way the participant can prepare themselves at ease for the class room session. For the coaches/trainers it means that deliver the course should be more easy and they can always refer and add extra material into the e-modules.

Recommendations to other buyers: Please refer to the Pros/Cons section. Thank you.

Pros: Output plays on ALL devices without downloading apps or reconfiguring user's device.

Cons: Could use some extra interaction features.

Overall: We have been using iSpring Suite for a couple of years now after using another very well-known authoring software. Our original reason for switching is the fact the iSpring presentations work perfectly on iPads and other mobile devices. We have no control over what device our end users are using to complete their courses, therefore we wanted something that would work without our users having to download other apps or configure their devices or browsers.

From the start, iSpring did exactly what it was supposed to do. It may lack a couple of features some of the other software has, but that has not been an issue for us.

We have also experienced very responsive customer support anytime we needed it. From questions about the software itself to the best way to configure our equipment, all of our questions have been answered.

I highly recommend iSpring Suite to anyone developing eLearning today.

Pros: Ease of use from the start, multiple tools to use and now available in Spanish

Cons: They have removed the option to publish in Word of quizes and it was very important to review all the quiz.

The option to publish in Word should be available for the entire course, including talkmaster, visuals and quizez.

I miss being able to export to excel quizez.

I miss being able to hyperlink from a quiz to a visuals or talkmaster of the same course and vice versa. It would allow for much more interactive courses.

I miss that you can edit the size and position of the character in talkmaster.

I miss that you can change the size and position of text text boxes in both talk master and visuals.

Pros: Easiness of e-learning implementation and the publish opportunity in HTML5.

Cons: None, whatsoever (sorry ;-)

Overall: The notion of gamification has been a big issue these days in the digital learning environments. Methodology specialists are pretty sure that gaming that includes fair competition can increase motivation of students living in global network societies.

Surely, most training designers are aware that too much fun can be a kind of distraction in the process of knowledge gaining. Nevertheless, a modern well thought of and neatly produced e-learning training can be more effective once at least some elements of gaming have been introduced.

Yet, gamification requires much interaction. Some animation would be highly appreciated, too. Thanks to iSpring Suite 8.5 that features the morph transition (PowerPoint 2016) both interactive and animated items have been ensured. From now on different elements of previously designed parts of a course can be moved smoothly from one place to another. It gives learners the opportunity to boost their experience of participation in the learning environment of the training.

The attractiveness of the course that includes the morph transition is obvious. What is more, such courses and easily be published in HTML5. That ensures full mobility of the courses that can be delivered on tablets or smartphones.

Pros: This software makes it really easy to create interactive PowerPoint presentations. We use it in our lobby to welcome guests, combining digital signage with an opportunity for guests to learn more about our company and for us to learn more about them. We can pull in live web pages to display (like a weather report), show success stories about our mission, and allow visitors to navigate to different areas of our programs and services. Very cool.

Cons: It occasionally crashes. I haven't been able to pinpoint the issue, whether it's this software or a driver or the OS. But every few days I come to work and the the program is frozen or has stopped running. Sometimes it's PowerPoint, other times it's iSpring. Strange, as it will work fine for several days in a row and it never happens when someone is using it, which is good.

Overall: As I described in the Pros section, we use this software as a way for our customers to learn about us and we about them. It give them something to do while they sit waiting to meet with someone. We get compliments on the system all the time.

Pros: iSpring doesn't require a large learning curve to begin producing a program. However, as with any software with a lot of features, you need to take the time to explore the software and learn how to make the most effective use of its features.

Seamless integration with PowerPoint. iSpring is much better at handling audio files that the native PowerPoint support. It's also beneficial that iSpring supports the animation and transition effects available in PowerPoint.

Also, iSpring has the capability to make audio changes while you're working in the timeline which saves having to close the program and open the audio file in another program, save it and then re-import it into iSpring.

Finally, iSpring offers excellent support and the few problems I've encountered have been promptly dealt with.

Cons: The programs that I produce include several short video clips. iSpring does not have the ability to alter the slide layout from slide to slide. The work around is to insert the video directly onto the slide in PowerPoint rather than in the iSpring timeline. Not a big issue, but working on the iSpring timeline just makes things easier.

Overall: I use iSpring to produce hour long training programs which includes a quiz at the end. The overall experience has been very favorable and the HTML output performs well.

Pros: iSpring has been a reliable development tool for us. We have found it to be almost 100% compatible with ALL of PowerPoint's features. It works very quickly in terms of development and generation of courses. When we've had a question or issue, the Support Team at iSpring is extremely helpful and always gets us a response within a day usually. It is feature rich, has good sound encoding, great video playback and excellent support for LMS tracking. Disclaimer: I have worked with iSpring in their show booth as an unpaid volunteer. I enjoy the product and have established friendships with people at iSpring. I would not be in their booth if I did not believe in their product.

Cons: I don't care too much for their interaction builder, but I suspect new features are being built into it. For me, that's a minor dislike as I can inset other objects that do the same thing.

Comments: First, customer support for iSpring is ASTOUNDING! I have never had better customer support. On several occasions, the iSpring support staff responded within minutes to my questions! Thank you Iryna, Anna, and everyone else at iSpring.

I have used iSpring for several years in my teaching and my research. I began with iSpring Presenter and then upgraded to Suite 8. About the same time, I upgraded one of my laptops to Windows 10 (which I use for lectures), and had some problems playing .swf files that were added to my powerpoints created on my Windows 7 machine. Iryna literally must have spent hours and hours with me over the course of several weeks. I am not a "technical person" at all....so I must have tested her incredible patience with all my stupid questions (sorry about that, Iryna). In the end, it turned out to be a problem with the way the classroom projectors were not detecting the HDMI signal from my Window 10 machine, and NOT an iSpring problem at all. After updating the video drivers on Windows 10 and installing a fresh copy iSpring (thanks Anna) all is now working perfectly the way it should. Again, thanks Iryna and Anna for your tremendous assistance on this - I was so frustrated that I was having fantasies about throwing my laptop away!

In addition to teaching, I/we (the research group I am a part of) collect data from about 2,000 students each year. In the past, this was a very time consuming and labor intensive process, especially with the 'experimental manipulation' (which I/we had to do in-person). Using iSpring, I created several different manipulations that could be delivered on-line. Not only was using iSpring for this purpose a great time-saver, but it also allowed for consistent delivery of the manipulation by reducing experimenter effects (always a concern when different experimenters present the different manipulations 'in-person').

I am nearing the end of my career and will be retiring in a few years. Suite 8 has so many things that can be done that I will probably have enough time to learn and/or creatively use them all. I will leave that to the next generation.....

All in all, iSpring is a wonderful software for what I need to do, and the customer support is second to none.

Pros: I've been using iSpring Suite to author e-learning modules since 2014, when I selected it as the software to use when taking courses in online instructional design. I chose it then because it was not difficult to master and it was not as expensive as other software I looked at. I continue to use iSpring Suite for these reasons - it's easy to use, it delivers a professional looking project and it's competitively priced. The company also continues to add new features that provide additional options, like the recent addition of dialogue simulations.

Cons: I often struggle with finding files for existing quizzes or simulations that I want to use in a new module. Sometimes when I think I'm publishing a quiz or other interaction in a way that lets me find it again, it turns out I was wrong. Sometimes there are issues with saving these interactions within a module too, but but mostly it works well.

Overall: As an educator with subject matter expertise, it's great to also be able to develop and quickly produce and publish my own e-learning modules without having to engage other instructional designers.

Pros: It is VERY easy to start using it without spending a lot of time learning about it. It's quite intuitive and it has a lot of features built into it. Many different types of question styles, controls for ensuring content isn't missed, an extensive asset library, controls to quickly create interaction scenarios. I researched many different LMS products, including Articulate, Captivate, and others. I'm an average/better than average computer user and I wanted to be able to get converting my programs fast and create tests to go with it. I'm a one-person operation and iSpring has been very easy to use, and I didn't need much help. Occasionally I need to ask "where is this feature located?" and I'm good to continue immediately. I can't say enough good things about their support. I've been helped by a few different staff there, and Paul was very helpful with my queries - he actually asked to CALL ME to talk me through my questions! Now that's service we rarely get in the States.

I'm very pleased with the product and support I've been given, and I recommend anyone looking for an LMS program to give them a try. I used the free trial and liked it a lot. It was another 6 - 7 months later that I bought the program (I wasn't ready to convert the files) and they updated to version 8.7. It took months of research for me to select them, and I'm very pleased with my decision, and with the results of the product output.

Overall: It made converting my presentations into online courseware VERY easy. I like it a lot!

Pros: Technical support has been fantastic! The few struggles I have encountered have been address quickly, professionally with a friendly, supportive approach.

Overall, the software is very intuitive and easy to use. I also appreciate how new capabilities are added and existing ones evolve.

Cons: Once in awhile I encounter a limitation with how a particular quiz or interaction is set up (available parameters) and think "I wish it could do ". With a bit of creativity, I can usually find a workaround or different approach.

Overall: Excellent for rapid development and projects that require multiple iterations and extensive changes. The suite is very versatile and easy to use (particularly as a non-programmer). Available tutorials, templates and great customer service make this an outstanding software program that should be in everyone's toolkit!

Pros: I like its ease of use, great html publishing that brings over everything I create in PowerPoint, and its seamless integration with PowerPoint.

Cons: There's nothing I don't like. But, I suggestion I have is if they could make custom interface controls like dials or knobs that a learner can click, hold, and move while watching an indicator move. For example, if I increase the heat on a thermostat, it would be great to watch the indicator needle rise with the manipulation of a control mechanism.

While I can simulate, to a degree using animations in PowerPoint, it would be easier to add controls and tie their actions to indicators for better simulations.

Overall, I have zero complaints about this software. It's made my job much easier and has helped me be more creative.

Pros: The software har many important functions that adds beautifully into our PowerPoint based courses. We appreciate all types of questions, how they can be tailored to any special needs, and how the software reports can be distributed in several ways.

Cons: The few issues and wishes we had listed in Version 7 and Suite 8 have been corrected and solved by the excellent and highly cooperative technical support in iSpring.

Overall: A fairly large education unit in an Aviation Service Provider, we are training technical and operational staff using e-learning instead of class room. With this software, combined With PowerPoint, a large number of courses and exams have been developed with great savings as a result. The candidates appreciate the courses very much, and we have full Control of every persons Level of knowledge and thus the basis for certification in various Fields.

Pros: I run a personal website in my spare time ,where I teach online guests the rudiments of computer science. To do this I leverage on ispring to create mobile ready video presentations.

ispring enable me create audio visual presentations which help pass my thoughts to my viewers easily. I am provided with instructional tips and video tutorials on the ispring website, which allows me present my videos and presentations in ways which ,I normally would had required hiring a professsional to achieve.ispring has also saved me a lot of money ; and since my website is free to use, it only makes sense that the cost of creating content is reduced to the lowest minimum and ispring let me do just this.

Cons: Has quite a slow learning steep. At least I have not been able to pick the workings of this program as fast as I do with other tools. Could be because I haven't had enough time to ,because of my job.

Pros: ease of use. HTML5. Quiz maker and powerpoint conversion which prevents copying (as mine is a free site)

Cons: The cost is on the higher side. Some restriction on formatting etc. but has been improved to a large extent in iSpring suite 8 version

Overall: I have been an iSpring suite user for a long time. I have used it for converting powerpoint presentation into files which can be seen on any browser. We run a free educational website for Pediatric residents and medical students as well as doctors.

The Quiz creation option is very easy to use. NO Training is needed.

It lets you and the student see the response of the quiz. It allows integration of images as well. One could do easy import from an excel file to create more quizzes by mix and match.

The HTML 5 converter option gives flexibility for your content to be used on desktop, mobile or tablets.

I am a Pediatrician by training and could manage it easily. The iSpring support team is awesome and very prompt.

I am from India and find the cost on the higher side especially as it is a free website.

There are many more features which have not been explored fully. I would highly recommend iSpring for its ease of use, variety of applications, HTML5 and new features that are added regularly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Very good software for people who are not inherently from techno field. I have been upgrading their last 3 versions.

Pros: We really liked user-friendly interface and it has a variety of features that were offered by iSpring!

Of course, we've come up with some questions and also had some issues during our experience with iSpring Suite. There's a Knowledge Base on the website, which has the essential information, however, sometimes it needs to be more specific. However, customer service is makes that easier: technical support specialists are always ready to help, and they promptly reply to any customer queries!

Cons: We feel that iSpring is going in the right direction: they consider the requests of their customers, improving the software and widening the features! Of course, some of the issues cannot be fixed immediately and it might take some time; or, for example, sometimes you feel like you need some more options or tools. Not everything, but there are features which are implemented by Developers Team.

Pros: The ability to create combined Video and PowerPoint presentations and to easily publish them to the iSpring LMS and to my Moodle LMS. We can go from recording a video to a complete product in a very short time. Combines the best of recording presentations with editing, producing and publishing. There is no product on the market that competes with iSpring suite.

Cons: There are so many improvements it is hard to keep up!

Pros: The problems that I faced recently in my company are lack of a platform to develop and design courses, lack of post-training support and a small courses templates database with an old fashioned design.

With iSpring I managed to solve all three problems on my own in a short period of time. Often, one day is enough to develop a course due to iSpring Suite simplicity and iSpring technical support.

iSpring Suite is a kit that includes all necessary tools. I can create an interactive course, and enhance it by adding a quiz. Adding a quiz takes just 5 minutes and voila, my course is ready for publishing. Courses can be easily published as e-Learning courses that can be loaded to any LMS. I did never had any errors with this.

Definitely, it is a must have toolkit for everyone who develops e-Learning courses and is limited in time.

Pros: Essentially a plug-in for PowerPoint, this product allows you to convert PP presentations into e-learning courses coded in a number of different formats, including SCORM and HTML5. On top of that, there is a lot of proprietary content, including slide templates, background images, and hundreds of character images (with many different styles and poses). The suite also gives you the capacity to create quizzes and surveys, interactive images, dialogue simulations, and more.

Cons: The only grievance I have with the product is that some of the interactive image players are not as customisable as I would like, but the customer service team has been fantastic in helping me find workarounds, or forwarding my queries to the development team for potential updates.

Overall: Our old LMS e-learning creation tool was very limiting, this software allows us to create courses that are much more interactive and engaging for our staff, as well as the ability to create them at a much faster rate. Overall, an outstanding product.

Pros: - easy to understand

- user-friendly interface

- decent view of training materials

- stable operation of the functional

- competent and quick support

- easy publication in any format

- your personal participation in the product development

Overall: My experience with the program started in May 2016 for the first time in connection with the online training course for the university. The program is intuitive. I caught it myself. The cost of the program was very attractive for teachers. Since the purchase, the program was updated several times with many useful things. The free support is available throughout the first year. Support is very competent and deployed to respond to questions and sympathetic to the users. I addressed the support twice: to learn about placing materials in LMS Canvas and to offer additional functionality. The existing functionality is stable. They worked out every detail in order to study material looked decent. iSpring Suite includes a module for editing video and audio, a module for creating screencasts, a module for interactive materials creation. In my opinion, the excesses are not needed in training materials, so I am satisfied. But I am sure they are going to do extended functionality for creating interactive materials because those guys work hard every day.

Pros: Clients can edit and re-purpose the source files without needing to purchase iSpring, saving them a license cost.

Combined with advanced powerpoint knowledge, a great elearning program (or even website) can be created quite efficiently.

Cons: I would love to see future iSpring versions create some sort of Timeline for animations, different than the PPT original, to break the box even more of iSpring's capabilities.

Another great feature would be to add in variables, to be able to add gamification and other engaging elements.

Overall: iSpring is easy to use and work with, allowing someone with little to no HTML5 knowledge to be able to create engaging web apps and training.

Pros: I like that iSpring is consistently improving and willing to receive and acknowledge feedback. The obvious 'pro' is that they instantly had the software solution to our immediate need.

Cons: The only minor 'cons' I can think of are already fixed in Version 8.

Overall: In short, our company needed more control over the protection of our presentations. Many of our PowerPoints were illegally published online. NOW, we use iSpring to convert all our presentations into html5 and have the control we need.

It all started with a need to control our content, but then we saw the extra value. iSpring Suite has very cool features we didn't even think about initially, such as QuizMaker and Visuals. We have expanded the usefulness of our content with these other amazing tools.

Recommendations to other buyers: I looked into 5 or 6 different options for software including some of the "big name" companies. iSpring was the best by far. I don't want to over hype their software, but if you are looking for a way to maximize the reach of your PowerPoints and protect your content, it doesn't get easier than iSpring.

Pros: What I like most about this software is its ease of use and its adequate functionality for a high quality e-learning course. iSpring Suite has almost all the functions I need for my course, not only for designing the lectures (lessons) themselves but also for the creation of supplementary materials (like books, timelines, directories, quizes). More importantly, iSpring Suite has many options to customize the publication of the lessons and whenever I come up with an publication idea, I've found out that my idea has already been thought over by iSpring team, which is amazing. I also love the support I receive from the technical support engineers. There are just a few of them (fewer than 10 people I suppose) but I think they've been working so effectively and always provide me with prompt support.

Cons: Honestly, there are some of my wishes that haven't been fulfilled by iSpring, for example, more flexibility in quiz formatting, more question types in iSpring quizes, or the possibility of adding audio narration to iSpring interactions (i.e. books). Still I think iSpring Suite is really good value for money.

Overall: It helps me so quickly and efficiently design e-learning courses which fulfills almost all of my needs.

Pros: excellent support, excellent html5 output, easy to use workflow

Cons: Personally - default blue buttons on mobile view (why not some neutral gray tone color for example?). This is my personal problem, because I own big edu online classrom project and my green / black project UI (color theme) looks crazy with blue buttons on mobile devices.

Overall: I am absolutely loyal client second year. iSpring Suite is high quality elearning toolset and customer support is excellent (Adobe can learn from you). I wait only for one small feature - possibility to change color of buttons on mobile player view (for unified apperance of my elearning products), and than I can upgrade my academic license iSpring to full commercial and start to move a tons of elearning content created in Captivate, here to iSpring enviroment.

Recommendations to other buyers: I hope you dont stop perpetual license model, or provide mixed model - perpetual who likes and subscription for some others people, who like subscription. I will pay maintenance plan forever for my perpetual license -:)

Pros: The iSpring software is very easy to use and all the Organizational Administrators like the quick access to reports and assignments for their teams.

The most important feature we liked was after looking at seven other providers, iSpring was the only company that provided answers to our questions, did a virtual tour for our decision makers and showed us how their product would work rather than just telling us.

Cons: The only drawback we have found is when you update or change anything you have uploaded, you have to replace the entire module. You can't just edit it. So make sure you are ready with a finalized version of your presentation before you upload it.

Overall: The system allows our location managers to focus on the business rather than spending a multitude of hours on training. The flexibility for our staff to access the training when it is convenient for them is great as it saves on overtime and most importantly doesn't take away time they can spend on service provision for the population we serve.

Pros: The ability to combine all the features of Power Point with the creation of the control operations in the form of tests

Overall: Ispring I use to create remote biology lessons.

The program allows you to compose and conduct biology lesson plan, using different means of clarity: embedded Flash animation, record your voice for each slide, embed various types of testing.

I create the finished course for each topic, and inserted it into a website that allows you to use my development, not only in the classroom, but also remotely.

Ispring - a great tool in the work of a school teacher or any other teacher

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend this program to all teachers. This program allows you to create a presentation for visual accompaniment lessons and distance learning course, which can be used without the participation of teachers

I trialled both QuizMaster and Suite 8 before purchasing Suite 8

Pros: I found QuizMaster and Suite 8 very easy to use once I got used to using them and became aware of what properties I wanted to use.

I was uncertain about the purchase initially and whether Suite 8 would work on our company's dilapidated computer network. My Consultation was extremely helpful in helping me to set up a trial and extended it as well and answer questions or put me on to other Consultants. This service, even before I bought the product was the best that I have experienced. This has also continued now that I have bought the product.

Cons: There is not much that I don't like about the product. But I would like the designers to see if more than 1 quiz can be inserted into longer or more complex PowerPoints so that quizzes can be performed progressively, rather than 1 big quiz at the end (or wherever it gets inserted). This would require the separate quizzes to be able to link to each other.

Overall: This software allowed my company to insert a professional looking Quiz/ Assessment component into our already produced and yet to be produced training packages. The quiz component that is now contained within our PowerPoint training material looks like it was produced by an external supplier that would have been costly to produce. In fact it was produced internally within the company at a much reduced cost.

Pros: Ease of use

Overall: I have finished creating my first sales training course with iSpring Suite, so now I'm ready to share my experience and thoughts.

Here's what I liked about authoring with iSpring:

1. Familiar PowerPoint environment.

2. The capability to present learning materials in a different way, e.g. in the format of an e-book. While being a familiar form of content representation on mobile devices, it is a fresh touch as a part of a PowerPoint presentation.

3. Great quiz making tool with a variety of question types, the capability to insert media in the questions, the capability to address a learner by his or her name and many other settings.

4. A wide range of characters and their poses, gestures and facial expressions, so that you can choose a suitable one for almost any situation.

5. Support of a universal (Flash+HTML5) format, which can be played on any device. You can also choose to publish a course as a SCORM package for SCORM-friendly learning management systems.

6. Dialogue simulations, which I plan to include in my future courses.

7. The capability to record voice overs and insert both pre-recorded videos from your hard drive and YouTube videos.

8. It is possible to set up navigation throughout the course to let the learner go to the next slide only after he sees all the information on the current slide.

9. Various player customization settings.

10. iSpring preserves animations after publishing a presentation.

11. Reasonable pricing in relation to rich functionality.

12. Skillful, caring and patient technical support engineers.

13. Lots of video and text materials in Russian to help novice distance learning managers.

All in all, I am satisfied with the iSpring tool's performance. It took me a week to create a course of 80 slides with 5 quizzes and an interactive book.

Recommendations to other buyers: What I would like the developers to pay attention to: 1. Improve trigger conversion. 2. Not sure how to put it, but I lack movement on the slides. 3. Add more variables. In particular, I would like to address the learners by name from the very beginning of a presentation. 4. Want the Next button to appear on a slide only after a learner completes reading or takes certain actions. 5. The same about quizzes: I would like a learner to go back to the beginning of the course if he fails a quiz and continue to the next slide if the quiz is passed. 6. Get rid of glitches which appear when using certain animation types.

Pros: The integration between Microsoft PowerPoint and iSpring Suite is seamless and most important stable. The fact that one product can produce an entire course with a basic knowlede of PowerPoint, multi-media links and iSpring Suite makes it a must for any person/company embarking on an eLearning program.

Cons: The video lecture interface is great with the zoom in and out features but requires the same look and feel with respect to the controls as offered by the other universal type interfaces where features can be added and taken away through the customize interface.

Overall: Great product with all the features required for courseware development.
