Pros: Easy set up and smart rules
There are several smart rules which can be built into ACP which allow automatic assigning of teams, courses and learning paths when someone is created or registered in the system. Other LMS¿s provide this, but the way this is set up in ACP is intuitive and smart. It drastically cuts down the time needed to get people up and running on the LMS and will save the time that LMS administrators would usually take setting people up.

Offline Content
ACP seem to have done this better than any other LMS I have trialled. The ability to download all course content and use the system offline, while still experiencing the system as if offline, is a superior offering from ACP.

Publishing from Adobe Captivate
We already use Captivate to create our eLearinng content and publish our SCORM compliant training packages. Having a system that allows us to publish quickly and easily from our eLearning authoring program to our LMS saves time.

Instructor role
One unique part of ACP is having a dedicated instructor role which allows training instructors to log in and manage all of their training activities. Other LMS¿s have this but tend to be quite complex. The way a user experiences this in ACP is simple and easy to use.

Cons: The software is a little pricier than other LMS's out there on the market.

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.

Overall: 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: Adobe Captivate Prime is the latest ring of the chain. We are using Adobe Captivate for rapid course creation and Adobe Connect for webinars. So, on the LMS side, Adobe Captivate Prime gives us an opportunity to manage our eLearning lifecycle from a single point. You have everything under the one band. It gives you a single point of support contact.

On the LMS side, we have a great harmony with the eLearning courses which are created by Adobe Captivate. We are uploading our courses to Adobe Captivate Prime directly and manage them easily.

Cons: In my opinion, the user interface needs to be developed for user experience. But I can say that if you are using a big brand and have a good support user-interface is the second issue.

Overall: The biggest problem today's world, using very different tools for doing business. However, when we use Adobe products for eLearning ecesystem, we have a single point of contact and support center. It gives us time.

Pros: 1. In less than two hours, I had set up Captivate Prime. I had no hassles or problems.
2. The menus and options are easy to understand and look modern.
3. Despite the ease of use, I can do just about anything I'd want an LMS to do with Prime.
4. I can set up user roles and permissions at six different levels, including Learner.
5. I can set up external users, those outside my organization, and send them all a link to let them set up their own login and password, saving me a lot of time and ensuring greater security.
6. Prime lets me set up sets of skills for learners to achieve and tie them to learning objectives.
7. I can upload courses, videos, PowerPoint, PDF files and more and they show nicely using Prime's Fluidic Player.
8. There's a free app to use Prime on mobile devices.
9. The Reports that Prime generates out of the box are very nice, and I can also create my own.
10. There are gamification and branding options too.

Cons: It would be nice if Adobe offered trials longer than 30 days for those who want to try out the product because it can take a while to really put it through its paces.

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: So we have an instructional designer who uses this program to create courses. The great thing is that it works well with the rest of the products that are part of the adobe suite. Furthermore it's a great asset for our graphic designer as well. It serves multiple functions and a great buy.

Cons: My only issue is that it seems to have a steeper learning curve because of all the options, this can be a bit confusing but once you get passed the initial hump it's a great tool.

Overall: Our instructional designer uses this for the most part and sometimes I use it for our team when I need to create a financial webinar.

Pros: Lots of different functionality within the application, to create dynamic and responsive projects. Many different avenues to run through so that users of the project won't be bored.

Cons: The customer support is not helpful. I have had multiple situations where myself or my coworker have run into an issue and it is quite hard to convey it to the support staff. They don't appear to be experts in their own application, which makes it hard to explain the issue.

Overall: It is good if you have the ability to fully train a staff member on how to use the application. The user needs to be focused on this as their primary job if you want to produce a quality project.

Pros: Familiar platform.

Cons: Quiz feature will not work properly if course is narrated and has content located after quiz. Quix features should be upgraded.

Overall: Captivate 9 has contained some really nice features. Some work properly but others do not. This can be frustrating if you create a course surrounding a certain functionality, only to realize the bugs have not been quite worked out. With that said - the partner plug-ins with E-learning Bros is fantastic and a welcome addition.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are familiar with Captivate from previous versions, then you know what to expect. New to the program people should perform their research.

Pros: What's great about captivate is that it works really well with the rest of the adobe suite, so if you started your career as a graphic designer you'd be able to transition to a career such as instructional design with that background alone. It's very easy to use and pick up and if you've other e-authoring tools like storyline and lectora you'll feel right at home. Great piece of software.

Cons: I found it harder to pick up than I did storyline and I think this is because of my experience with powerpoint and the fact that I learned that first. It's also not as robust as storyline however, this is offset by the adobe suite.

Overall: it's useful for creating e learning courses

Pros: pretty intuitive to use and user friendly, especially in a situation such as mine where it was self-taught

Cons: sometimes hard to find (remember!) what is where in terms of features and click buttons

Overall: Over the years, I've learned how to use Adobe Captivate using the 'self-taught' method. So I know there's even more to it than I'm utilizing, but it's still pretty simple to pick-up and start using after a bit of normal trial-and-error. But very powerful...pretty user friendly...and pretty intuitive.
It was originally designed for tracking and recording on-screen directions/tutorials, but I've used it primarily as a enhanced PowerPoint presentation with voiceovers, navigation, etc.
Solid software and one that can really enhance your online training content!

Recommendations to other buyers: try your best to dedicate some time to truly learn the software instead of when crunched for time to develop/publish a new piece of online training content (or whatever your end product is)

Pros: Adobe Captivate's features scale to the user's skill and desire of depth of customization. One could make a simple slideshow with a voice-over and publish in video form or one could create a highly interactive, custom-coded, and immersive SCORM or SAML unit with several programmed learning paths all available on mobile devices of different sizes and PC/Mac.

Cons: I would like to see the interface updated to a flat UI with much more modern animations without having to import from a custom flash object.

Overall: I utilize this as an instructional system designer to create courses while are delivered to the user via an LMS. Using SCORM reporting, thanks to Adobe Captivates ability to export in SCORM, we've been able to track problem areas in our courses by analyzing the usage data. This is a CPI that would not have otherwise been able to realize without utilizing a hearty instructional design tool.

Not a lot of improvement from past versions.

Overall: Best software for training! I would recommend it to anyone!

Pros: We always look for LMS's that are SCORM compliant and were happy to see that Captivate Prime is. It is very user friendly. Course effectiveness is a useful tool, as an author, to ensure that the course is effective or if changes or updates are required. The iPad App is an additional benefit for learning on the go, allowing for synchronous learning. The administration side is also very easy to use which saves a lot of time.

Cons: It would be great if it allowed more social interaction between learners.

Overall: We develop courses for various clients and often recommend a suitable LMS to the client depending on their needs. We develop our courses using Articulate Storyline so it is essential that the LMS is Scorm compliant and are always happy to recommend Captivate Prime as it meets the needs of a number of our clients.

Pros: The biggest pro is that the software has a ton of capabilities. I give it a 5 in overall quality because I think what Adobe has done is fantastic in terms of the other competition. When I compare it to other e-Learning softwares I think Adobe Captivate Prime takes the cake with the LMS integration, and easy to understand (not intuitive without training) features, the software is ahead of its time.

Cons: I think other e-Learning creation tools will start to pass up Adobe Captivate Prime if they do not continue to make updates to make it easier to use. Users need to go through intense training to learn how to use the software (let alone to understand the educational philosophies of creating a good training). I think we will see a day when there is very little to no training required in order to navigate e-Learning creation software.

Overall: E-Learning is a great way to provide corporate training and has a lot of practical applications. Adobe allows for customized e-Learning courses with many options to the admins.

We used this software at the college and at the studio, during masterclasses.

Pros: This is an excellent tool for software simulations. Users can track and recreate clicks, interactions, and typing. Indicators on screen are clear and visible, and Captivate allows for pauses and narration. Speaking purely from an eLearning development perspective, this software is about as powerful and functional as most people will need, and the end product turns out easy to use and pleasing to look at.

Cons: As with most Adobe software, Captivate is *not* intuitive. It has a wealth of functionality, much of which is buried in thick menus or dozens of buttons. Users will need to invest time in reading guides and experimenting with the program. It is not something most people will be able to pick up and dive into.

Overall: Enhanced software simulations and professional, polished final products.

The UI is both pleasing to Admin roles as well as end-users. Captivate Prime supports customized learning plans, certification programs and a vast library of business related courses ready to deploy. Its graphically displayed reports and ability to publish content with or without learning requirements are unique features in the market. The 30-day free trial with full access is a huge plus. I would recommend it to anyone new or seasoned in LMS administration.

Cons: The naming conventions are something to get used to, but this is likely with every new LMS.

Overall: This is a great LMS rich in functionalities for an amazing low price.

Pros: I love that it's intuitive to use. There are a lot of functions at first, but you get to know what everything is and then it's pretty easy. The ability to create e-learning training videos easily is fantastic.

Cons: There's a lot going on if you don't know what you're doing - it can get a bit confusing. There are some glitches that happen a fair bit, like freezing or shutting down on me. And the cost is pretty high.

Overall: The ability to create easy e-learning video tutorials

Pros: Captivate makes it very easy to take a PowerPoint presentation and turn it into a beautiful elearning tutorial in a short time.

Cons: While I like the cloud features, there is not currently a cloud storage feature with the subscription. Because these projects often take up large amounts of space

Overall: I like the ability to create technology simulations fairly easily

Pros: As everything coming from Adobe, this is spectacular! There is practically NOTHING you can't do with it!! I come from video editing and animation using the Adobe suite, so it feels like I already know a bunch of features and things I see in Captivate. For the time I've used it I can say is quite easy to use, even when it has a lot of features and options.

Cons: It can get quite complex to use if you want to get to know all the features. Its a bit confusing. I suggest you read the manuals or watch a tutorial first.

Overall: We can easily and quickly create stunning eLearning contents for our clients!!

Pros: We use Adobe for document tracking, layout of publications and more. The learning curve wasn't as high for our team since the typical layout in the program is used. Also, we are able to integrate our other publications into the training flawlessly

Cons: Training new users takes a lot longer on this platform than on others. If a user is not familiar with Adobe products, plan properly for that learning curve.

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.

Comments: It was time to move to a new software for our online development courses. Previously we were using those native to our provider. We wanted something with more options, more updated tools and something easy to use. Classes need to be updated - it's a fact of life. The updating has to be easy or no one will ever do it. That's where we were before switching to Captivate. Now everything else easier to navigate, easier to publish.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be sure you also search LMS accounts. You won't be able to use this without it. At least not very easily.

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.
