Pros: You don't need special training to work in Captivate Prime. The software interface is highly intuitive and the features tailored to a cutting edge LMS, without all the gimmicks and featured that distract from the main focus - the content. The upload of the content and building of the programs is a swift task and the linkage to the gamification features and the leaders board fun.

One of the most appealing features about Captivate Prime is the appearance of the administrator and user interface. Adobe has really used their knowledge in graphic design to create a platform that is appealing to the eye and gives you the insist feeling of success. Away from the boring programming and administration some learning management systems offers, instead to an experience, where also the administrator is getting the visual pleasures a user would get.

Cons: Purchasing licenses via credit card was easy and reliable. However, when switching to a corporate account, the purchase of additional licenses was an unusual slow and almost painful process that needed several follow up mails in order to get the licenses in time. My personal recommendation, stay with online credit card purchasing feature. It gives you flexibility and avoids the pain of having to beg for licenses.

Overall: I have tested and worked with many different learning management systems and have to admit that Adobe Captivate was certainly the best on the market. Adobe has really managed to provide a system that has all cutting edge features for the current learning environment, but also refrains from overly complicated features that are not necessary and simple slow down the system instead.

The fact that the administrator has an appealing and intuitive interface to work with allows me to delegate administrative tasks to unexperienced colleagues, who quickly find their way around.

Pros: I understand the difficulty in creating a single LMS that will satisfy everyone. We all have very different needs. There is steady, albeit slow, improvement in functionality and features. The options to have different domains and the ability to share content between domains is a nice feature. Much easier to navigate and set up than other LMSs I have used. Customer support has been very responsive.

Cons: The requirement for an email address to log in. I serve a clientele that is not tech savvy and many do not have an email address(I know hard to believe in 2019, but true). You can use a fake email but then the ability to recover your password does not exist. The lack of password control by administrators can be problematic. My usage is external. Many people logging in from all over the country. If they have a password issue I can not help them. The placement of a cookie on your system every time you log in. If the learner does not use the "Sign Out" option and just closes the browser it makes it impossible for another to log in until that cookie is cleared. This is an issue with clients who use the same computer for many users.

Overall: We offer outside contractor and visitor training to our clients. This platform has served us well.

Pros: This platform is really interesting for learning managers. It has many features that allow an effective learner administration and different ways to manage users (external or internal). You can add users by uploading from a spreadsheet, create groups of learners based on location or business unit, use self enrollment or automate the adding new users. It also supports interactive content like Scorm, AICC, Tincan and regular content like Videos, Pdfs, PPTs, word and excel files.

Cons: The tools to create courses are very basic so it is recommended to create courses using other tools like Captivate and upload the content. You can also add activities and tests, but they also have to be created using another tool because it only allows you to add an external URL for learners to refer to, or have students submit files.

Overall: You can host certifications internally or by a third party. For internal, you need to define the courses that a learner has to complete to achieve completion status and the period the certification validity. All learning activities (assessments, skill level attainment and learning status) are automatically tracked, and managers can generate reports or subscribe to get them automatically in their e-mails and receive notifications for participants' learning activities (certifications, enrollments, unmet deadlines, etc).

This tool also helps engage learners thanks to these tools:

A dashboard to get a glance of their courses, overdue or deadlines, recommended learning, calendar and achievements.

Learners can see valuable skills for their position and find courses that help master those skills.

Gamification for rewarding desired behaviors. Earn and compare points with their colleagues based on rules that managers set. There are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels and badges for students upon completing a course.

This LMS also allows authors to create a course / learning program to drive a larger training goal that would span across individual courses. Also, you automatically assign courses or programs on the occurrence of certain events (promotion, relocation). Moreover, you can create catalogs with access to a customized set of learning material. Job aids can also be added for learners to access without having to enroll for any specific learning object

Pros: Adobe Captivate Prime is very easy to use. Our learners had no problem fully getting up to speed with how to use it. We enjoy the leaderboard as a way of being competitive with others. As an Admin, I feel like it is pretty straight forward with regards to adding courses, learning plans, and content. The reports feature is very good and continues to get enhancements made to it. All our courses work fine in the fluidic player with no issues. I like the dashboard and My Learning as a way for learners to view the status of their learning.

Cons: I have noticed a few bugs in the software that were reported. Some issues have been fixed and some are still outstanding. I would also prefer to have more control on when my self-paced courses expire. Currently there is a default expiration of six months for courses we want to keep available for longer. Since we have over 400 courses in the LMS, it will be a long process of re-publishing all the courses when they expire. The technical support availability could be a little better. I seem to mostly receive my communication from them in the afternoons (CST). Sometimes it would be nice to get a quicker response when there is an urgent issue.

Overall: We are very happy with our decision on using Adobe Captivate Prime as our LMS. It has suited our needs and it continues to have enhancements made to it. I have enjoyed working with the Adobe team, and they have been very helpful in multiple occasions. We have received very positive feedback from our learners on the easy of use of this product.

Pros: The major positive that has Adobe Captivate as our top choice is the wealth of functionality that it comes with. It completely blows the competition out of the water where features are concerned. Whether you want to record training presentations, do screen capturing, schedule notifications and reports, create learning plans, or incentivize your learning modules, prime basically has it all. The program is intelligent in its format delivery allowing our users to change their languages, formats, or playback methods, and it enables enhanced user engagement through offline learning, gamification, badges, bookmarks and revision notes. Unlike other programs, Adobe Captivate delivers for those who want to create an enjoyable eLearning experience.

Cons: Despite Adobe Captivate's attempts at a more modern user-interface with flat menus and no hidden buttons, the software is not intuitive for those jumping in for the first time. Unfortunately, a lot of the functionality of the software is buried deep within the thick menus and because of the single web page architecture, you need to invest in a lot of time to sort through the program to find what you need. With dozens of buttons and menus, you end up investing a ton of time into experimentation and tutorial reading. This is definitely a piece of software for those who want to use it and nothing else, as jumping in and "going with the learning flow" is not as easy as they make it sound.

Overall: One of the major problems that we were trying to overcome was how to deploy our eLearning modules, presentations, and learning plans while still tracking user engagement, retention, and participation all without requiring our own hosted server. Adobe Captivate Prime delivers this solution while providing us with exceptional support.

Pros: After exploring a number of LMS's, I found that Adobe Captivate Prime was very practical. If you so happen to be using Adobe Captivate you'll find it very easy to publish your work. In addition, the tabs are clearly identified with all of the functions clearly presentable. Moreover, the LMS was fairly easy to use especially considering the accessible help prompts and tutorials.

Cons: While I loved the flow and crystal layout, I found it to be too boxed in for the clients I was trying to reach. In other words, I needed a bit more engagement and interactivity beyond the software; I desired to engage my trainees in collaborating beyond simple discussion boards and games. I wanted to provide real life experiences that incorporated social media outside of the software. So, while I loved the simplicity and structure, I desired professional coaches and mentors to supplement my trainees with real time experiences.

Overall: My overall experience with Adobe Captivate Prime was exceptional, that is in the case of developing and publishing courses. My challenge was trying to provide adult learners with a nontraditional approach via online/hybrid that would most effectively increase their attention and learning.

Pros: 1. Covers various methods of course delivery

2. Integrates with external content providers.

3. Makes it easier to define a skill and provide content covering it.

4. Provides the user/admin with several views in the same tab, eliminating the need to have

to sign in on a different page to see the learner's perspective

5. Great built in tutorials.

6. Many options to set up automatic emails upon the happening of an event, all organized

by categories

Cons: 1. The service is a bit expensive as it is based on the number of users and does not include a flat fee for a set number as provided by other services

2. Cannot use interactive content for job aids

Overall: Adobe captivate is a robust and capable application that provides a ton of features and integration with other sources. When you first create an account, you have access to four different profiles, each providing you with a different set of features and tools. You can be an author, an administrator, a learner or an integration admin. This separation keeps things organized and less confusing. The UI is also very clean, intuitive and comfortable to navigate.

The learning experience is broken down to six different options: Job aid, learning programs, learning plans, certification, catalogs and courses. The courses are the most basic and include a list of all courses available. The learning program is for instances where a learner needs to learn a particular subject. A learning plan is designed for future learning in the event the learner has new developments requiring additional learning or training, like a promotion, the need to acquire a new skill and so on. The catalog is a comprehensive and organized place where all courses pertaining to a particular area of interest are grouped. The certification path is for gamification and for industries requiring it. Finally, the job aid option is accessible without the need to enroll in a course. The content can be documents or links to external content, but cannot be a learning module designed by an authoring tool.

The great thing about the Prime LMS is that it integrates with other learning platforms including Lynda and LinkedIn.

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: The market for LMSs is consistently on the increase, with evolving needs based on the end user and other factors in between. Most platforms have evolved but this is especially true with the UX experience for Adobe Captivate Prime. I find that captivate prime has most of the current market standard features plus more. From features such as setting learning paths for students to others such as reporting, gamification and user tracking etc.

I found the set up easy enough, even as a new admin user and was able to load content within a few minutes. I was especially impressed with the simple interface that reduced the platform learning curve for me and the course set up/deployment time.

I think the option to break down a course content upload to three sections (core modules, prework modules, and testout) is a great feature. Although a little more work, this would improve tracking and provide more detailed usage data/student interaction with the modules.

I also liked that it has gamification elements available for use for individual or group learning.

On the pricing module, I like the flexibility to add and remove users on a monthly basis, which is ideal for selling subscription-based courses.

Cons: I would like to see a pricing module targeted at educational institutions as there currently doesn't seem to be one. It is unfortunate that it seems only targeted at corporate institutions at this point.

Overall: It is a modern LMS with great features, reduces set up/course upload and deployment time and takes off much of the burden of tracking and user engagement from the content owner.

Pros: The software is absolutely up-to-date. Learners have mentioned that the learner-centric interface and functionality are what they appreciate the most about this system. It's easy to interact with the content in the mobile app as well. They are motivated by the gamification options and by each other. Customer support is relatively fast and very personable.

Cons: Our Admin team setup mock courses and learning programs for testing purposes only. We went back in to clean out those test files, but the system would not allow us to delete them. We have to live with these test files in the archive. Not a showstopper, but it's silly to not be able to delete them. Also, there are some cases where the L&D team wants managers to review/grade their own employees easily. This was not an automatic option in the system.

Overall: My team employed ACP to support a sales team. This team was frustrated with how cumbersome it was to load training onto the existing LMS and learners needed a better/mobile experience. We achieved BOTH with ACP. There's no turning back now.

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: Very good for Tracking

Excellent Multi Tenanting configuration possibilities for a business that is a GROUP of companies.

The Branding by use of a theme is a good idea. Love the email templates and automation within the system, it is a very handy feature for tracking learning, very handy indeed! Especially, for larger companies.

The use of setting up a programme and Learning Plans with certification levels and gamification in the form of badges. This is a superb way of delivering Apprenticeships for the Apprenticeship Providers also who work with Employers of large corporations.

A very Commercially viable product that will work seamlessly with their website, love the URL that they can get with their own name first.

Love the idea of booking Virtual class sessions and Lessons so that there is complete tracking and accountability built in.

As a registered Adobe user, I like the fact that I can create assets within the Adobe Creative Suite and then use them within Adobe Captivate LMS. The quality is very high in Adobe so I recommend the integration of Adobe assets with this LMS.

Cons: Found the course more suitable to commercial application.

It is important to have all your assets ready to start building the course and it would take some planning beforehand. This is not an LMS for lighthearted course development, and I do see this LMS as best suited to an ultra security conscious commercial environment that protects its assets like fort knox! For this reason alone, as a business, I would buy it.

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.

Good for big corporations, not for the small entrepreneur.

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

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

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

Would have been nice to have more video tutorials on how to use the platform for different roles.

Pros: My main interest was simple integration with Adobe Captivate. Indeed, the 2017 release of Adobe Captivate provided excellent integration with Captivate Prime LMS. Discounts are offered after the 500 user mark. Many vendors only offer discounts after 1000 user mark. This was a great plus. Also Captivate Prime works with Tin Can, which is critical. It was easy to use and reporting was clear.

Cons: There is a lot of competition out there. It would have been nice if there was e-commerce.

Overall: Captivate prime is a cloud based learning management system. This is known as web-hosting or Saas (Software as a Service) and for me is a positive feature. Generally SaaS is convenient for many companies to work with. Adobe in general has quite complex software so I expected the use of this LMS to be rather complex as well, however it seemed pleasantly seamless.

Pros: From the learner perspective, I liked to customize widgets on my dashboard. It became more useful to me.

As an admin, I would say I like the "Connector" simplicity. It was impressive. If you say to "importing users has to be painless", you should see that.

"Instances" feature impressed me. Thanks to Instances, your users can take the different version of the course at different time periods.

To add the new language version of a course, Captivate Prime offers a good user experience.

Cons: I think the "Learning Programs" steps need more user-friendly. All the things clear, I am filling the forms, selecting the correct options, but my eyes searched the next or save button.

Overall: It is so easy to use. I did not ask "how to..." question in Captivate Prime. It showed me when I needed to.

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

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

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

Pros: 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: It feels like Adobe immediately after you open it. It is software for professional designers, but the quality of the results are the ones of a pro.

You can control lots of settings and features.

Cons: As I mentioned in the "pros" section. The problem for us was that we are not professional designers so it took us a while and lots of tutorials after to figure it out how to use it. If you have some experience with Adobe products, it helps.

We were looking for a product to create Spanish e-learning courses, so we needed a foreign keyboard feature to allow students to add their answers using Spanish characters.

Apparently there is no such a feature yet, so we decided to not go ahead with Captivate for this project.

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

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

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

Pros: 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: Very attractive graphics and UI flow

Clever inclusion of independent R&R system

Matrixed psychology used in learning style, engagement and reinforcement

I like that reporting includes the differentiation between course completion and course engagement duration spent by the individual. I think that's important for different reasons (HIPAA annual cert. v management training) and needs to be captured.

Cons: Back end integration not mentioned which leads me to question whether it is a possibility at all and the cost for such integration and data sharing with additional vendors

Entire system appears to be a closed-end system and not something which is very easily integrated even on the front end it's mentioned but I have a hard time seeing where it would be integrated other than customization of images and other flat components

I am concerned that potentially employees would find this to be a distraction away from their work assignments. I'm curious to see what kind of reinforcement and regulation might be available to avoid that type of distraction.

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

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

Overall: I have worked with Captivate in making eLearning.

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: We use the Captivate suite for elearning development. My use is primarily limited to creating training video recordings to achieve higher quality than simply recording a web conference/webinar. From that perspective, I like the ability to create video demos and edit them to remove my hesitations and other hiccups. With a simple USB microphone, the audio quality is very good, and the ability to do basic editing meets my needs. I like being able to easily create multiple mini videos and combine them into a larger project.

Cons: There are a lot of options - it can be a bit much if you are muddling through on your own. There are a lot of external learning resources available, however. I also wish that it was a little more straightforward to edit individual video files after you've brought them into a project. I find that the graphic capabilities (creating title slides, for example) is a little clunky, so I usually just end up designing those in power point and exporting them as jpeg images for the Captivate project.

Overall: It gives me what I need to make video recordings of trainings and demos at a much higher quality than a recorded webinar. Once you figure out the quirks, it's easy to replicate the steps from project to project.

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

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

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

Pros: Not much. It looked great when we were investigating it, but we quickly became disenchanted when we were actually using it with all of our employees.

Cons: Buggy

1. Playback wouldn't always work for everyone.

2. Sometimes, the courses wouldn't mark as complete for all learners, even though they had been completed them.

3. Reporting is very difficult. It takes too much time (and trickery) to find the information you want.

4. It doesn't always work with Captivate Prime (which is the weirdest thing ever). You'd think that Adobe would make sure it always does, even if you are using a Mac.

5. Adding users didn't want to work via upload. Contacted support, which wasn't helpful. I ended up having to add them one at a time.

6. Too expensive for what you get and once you start the year commitment, there is no way out. You have to pay for something you can't use anymore.

7. Don't have the ability to reset scores back to zero if wanted.

8. Don't have the ability to allow users to retake the quiz at end. We ended up having to force everyone to get 100% by designing the courses to not allow them to go forward until they had answered the questions correctly.

9. Once the learners went through a course, they could never look at it again, which is not what we wanted at all.

10. Online Help Documentation is inadequate.

Overall: It was a big disappointment. We want to add training for external customers and we can't risk having the issues we had with employee training with them. We have already started the process of migrating to a different platform.

Pros: The software itself served the purpose for which we purchased it. It has great functionality and export/custom options that allow you to do what you need.

Cons: The least impressive element about the software was how difficult it was to use. Unlike some other Adobe programs (which some may say are not very intuitive), this program required a lot of prior knowledge about logic/a programming mindset. The mix between Adobe Edge Animate/Muse and Microsoft Powerpoint made it a bit cumbersome to understand.

Overall: The benefits of the program were soon outweighed by the amount of money and time/effort it took to produce a product we were happy with. Overall, it's not a horrible product. For someone who knows what they're doing (I only knew what I wanted, and was only mildly adept at using the product), I could see it being a valuable product to LMS work. In my company's instance, this was not the case.

Pros: You really can't beat an LMS that is so streamlined to the Adobe Captivate software. A click of a button has your course published SCORM compliant.

Without any hand holding I was able to click through every menu, load courses, classes and materials. Customizing the page to our company colors and logos was ridiculously easy, too.

I was impressed with the reporting tools - everything I would want as a corporate trainer is included.

It doesn't get any more user friendly than Adobe Captivate Prime LMS.

Cons: The cost of Adobe Captivate is not as competitive as other LMS software we've looked into

Overall: Our Adobe Captivate Prime experience has been limited only in that we have only used the free trial period and had a virtual meeting with Adobe Prime Account Managers. We are pending funding to purchase, but if I had a choice this is the LMS I would choose - I build most of my course material using Adobe Captivate so using Prime seems like a natural progression. I just wish the pricing was a little more competitive.

Pros: Offers a host of features for a low, simple price. Offers an audit log for many actions.

Cons: Usability is a bit tough - requires some effort to learn most tasks and multiple roles and clicks to perform most actions

Overall: Used Captivate Prime to provide company resources with training in a medical device company. Again, great value but we found it difficult to use on an ongoing basis - setup was easy, but performing daily tasks is a chore.

It's a powerful software and would probably be 5 stars if I only had time to learn it better!

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

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

Overall: Good solid solution to all your Learning, Training needs.

Cons: The software is easy to use to not easy enough to the extent of me being able to use it without first needing training. The user would need to go through a course just to create a course, this is a process that I've seen for almost all software programs and there should be a better solution. The tutorial helps, but fully utilizing this software requires far more than a tutorial and it should require less in my opinion. We should be spending more doing making courses and content, not learning how to do so.

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.

Pros: The software was very easy to use, compatible with many external applications and came with great support for the product.

Cons: The cost was the only issue and factor that kept my non-profit from going with Adobe.

Overall: Adobe Captivate Prime was a great all around software with a user friendly interface, supportive documentation, flexible options for integration and a pairing with Adobe's suite of software. If it were up to me we would have definitely used Adobe Captivate Prime.

Pros: It's Captivate. It's the best option for turning a power point presentation into SCORM content available right now.

Pros: I really like that this fits all of our business needs and Adobe has provided everything needed to rapidly and effectively deploy our e-learning training program. Their customer support has been great!

Cons: As with any new system there is a bit of a learning curve at first however, it would be great if the system had a built in assistant or a beginners tutorial that could more easily be relied upon.

Overall: Overall, I'm very happy with the software and support I get from Adobe Captivate Prime. Project interactions are easily scalable for the size and scope of our business as well which makes choosing Adobe Captivate a no brainer for our organization.

Pros: It looked pretty, it sounded great, and appeared to have all the tools we needed. It has a decent UI for learners.

Cons: No ability to create standalone quizzes or questions you must buy licenses to their auth tool, worst customer support I've ever dealt with, poor management of course visibility, cannot create 'versions' you must add new LO and deactivate old LO, cannot utilize their webinar function completely without buying licenses to Adobe Connect, no drive to learn our business and help us strategize the LMS to our business, SSO cannot be setup with Google, users cannot have more than 1 custom role.

Overall: Horrible experience, I don't recommend for any business. We got sold on sales pitches then uncovered surprise after surprise of things that weren't properly explained to us. Some things we were flat out lied to about, like the it having quiz functionality. The Clarix and Adobe reps are awful with their support and knowledge of the systems, took us 6 calls to find out the SSO won't work on Google, the Adobe rep was 30 minutes late to a call. Such a waste of time and money and I'm amazed how they've been able to sell a platform with so many missing key functions and lack of expertise. We are getting out of our contract before we even launched it. Save yourself and avoid this headache, don't let them fool you as they did us.

Pros: Adobe Captivate Prime has a design that makes learning easy for ordinary people. It doesn't have too much information on the home and main pages so it is easy to understand where you are in your current learning plan. Also has a great user experience.

Cons: It doesn't have that one-time License fee. Subscription seems costly.

Overall: This learning tool suits well for small and medium enterprises.

Pros: I enjoyed how easy it was to use this system. Within a very short time frame I was able to setup a small demonstration, and learn the basics of the system.

Cons: Ultimately, I'd say the initial learning curve to everything was rather high, but a lot of that was also just learning about LMS systems in general.

Overall: I was approached by a client who wished to create a learning system to train new employees about medical coding systems. It was a very unique opportunity, and I actually knew very little initially about LMS platforms. I knew of Captivate from using other Adobe products, and began to dig into, and other similar platforms, but was blown away by how easy Captivate Prime was to administer, create content for, and really just get going. Sadly, they ended up going with a different approach, but I truly enjoyed working with Adobe Captivate, and hope to work with it more in the future.

I use this daily and once I used it for awhile, I love it.

Pros: Adobe Captivate Prime is the best LMS i have used. I have used this software to create learning modules. It is very good software to create courses and interactive learning material.There are lot of different feature you get in Adobe Captive.

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: From a Manager, Learner and Admin prospective, I like the ability of the user to be able to directly provide feedback to the manager on the course.

From a Learner prospective, the interface is quite nice. I am able to easily find the tools such as the calendar, catalog, job aids, etc. Everything is easy to view and navigate without having to dive into sub menus.

Overall - I felt there was a good number of tutorials on each permission set, that guide you through the process if you cannot figure out where to go or what to do next.

Cons: Social widgets appear to be completely absent from Prime and social engagement with the learning content, course completions, points, etc. is a feature that is high demand for today's learners.

Pros: The platform has got a really nice graphic, nice use of gamification, plays all the video types we tried to feed to it

Cons: Requires to develop questionnaires etc with external tools, which is ok. The main issue for us specifically is the the platform is perfectly designed for internal use, where teams and users can be all shared in one company. For our specific use where we need segregation between users using also any company domain on their email it was a bit of a problem, but our use is specific. Also white labelling (part of our special use again) was very limited

Overall: Nice product, will fit many uses with companies providing internal training. Not useful for our specific use where we had to look for specific platforms allowing ease of user groups segregation

Pros: When it comes to e-learning platforms, this is one of the best you can find. You can trust Adobe on all their products and this one is no difference.

It supports the most common content such as videos, PDFs, PPTs, DOCX or SCORM.

Cons: When dealing with audios, it can be a bit cumbersome to replace them. Working on a translation agency, changing audios with the localised version is something we need to do very often and sometimes these tasks are not so easy to do with the tool.

Pros: There is no question that Adobe Captivate has a lot of functionality. I am intrigued by the capability of using videos and stopping to pose students questions.

Cons: BUT I work for a small organization that, though they want quality, they do not have the funds to support the cost of the software AND a specialist to make the package hum.

Overall: I am looking for a new job and I am seeing that creating lessons with Captivate is a suggested skill. I used the 30-day free trial to learn as fast as possible and create a sample lesson. My learning curve had to be fast and I had to depend on videos to learn as much as I could. It was frustrating. I ended up with a pretty good final product that I took a video capture of for my portfolio. But I hope I do not need to use it...

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.

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.

Pros: Adobe Captivate Prime is a very robust yet easy to use LMS with all the features supporting social, gamified and formal learning today. 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.

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

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

Pros: LMS systems vary depending on their purpose. There are different systems with different UI, functions and structure. In modern world, development part is generally divided as backend and frontend sometimes more. As an LMS manager generally you have a spesific task. You need to manage your content and how it published. Captivate Prime simplifies that with good UI design and categorized functionality so you can do things in order and have flexibility while managing your courses.

Cons: Sometimes you may find design too simplified. You may do some extra clicks for details you search for.

Pros: It has the widest option variety and flexibility, and the best interface

Cons: Requires you to develop the content in a separate tool

Overall: Adobe Captivate Prime looks like an excellent solution for online company training. I tested several LMS and this is probably the one that was invested on the most. It has tons of options and an excellent interface.

The only disadvantage I found is that it doesn't have any tools whatsoever for content creation, as in the ideal world, you purchase Adobe Captivate (Adobe's solution for content creation) to do that. Most LMS offer at least basic tools for this, they will at least allow you to create multiple choice and/or true/false evaluations.

Pros: Can easily be translated to lessons taught as well as targeted to individual areas for improvement

I enjoy the data indicating what lessons students do (and don't) engage with and the length of their study of each topic

Length of set up it is very short and much appreciated!

Cons: Missing assessments for feedback to me as to what students struggle with. I see that that can be integrated but I don't know how to integrate it!

This system isn't currently utilized by my university I wonder how easily it could be integrated with the system that we are required to use by the University.
