Captivate 6 vs. Articulate Storyline

In the Middle of the Curve

I am a Captivate shop. Have been since Macromedia existed (Captivate 2?) I've used Captivate through UI changes, a couple squirelly updates and the long wait for right-click functionality. have not purchased the Captivate 6 upgrade yet (though I will need to since I have some folks in the pipeline), and if I have to retire Captivate as a solution - I can do so cleanly with this final version. Noticed how I focused on what I need to do NOW vs. shiny "new" features. -- Reasons for looking at changing development tools: Increasing use of mobile for training.

8 Things we MUST do in 2013 to seize the potential of mLearning

mLearning Revolution

2012 has been an amazing year for mobile! In 2012 Apple announced the iPhone 5, two new iPads and the new iPad mini; Google unveiled their first tablet, the nexus 7 and later the 10″ version; Amazon gave us three Kindle Fire HD tablets. One final statistic I would like to include here is the fact that as of September 2012, Android alone accounted for 1.3 Samsung S3).

Tools, talent, training and, above all, time

Clive on Learning

All the major tools - Adobe Captivate and Presenter, Lectora, Articulate Studio and its new sibling, Storyline - have had, or are in the process of receiving, major upgrades to make sure they are capable of tackling all the most essential e-learning tasks and can satisfy the need for delivery on mobile devices. Training I’ve already mentioned that developers will need some training in the tools that you’ve chosen to use. There’s no point whatsoever in investing in tools and training, and then expecting great work to appear from odd moments spent here and there.

7 reasons why the new Articulate Storyline is a Game-Changer for eLearning

mLearning Revolution

have been a fan of Articulate for a long time even as I worked for Adobe on the Captivate and eLearning Suite products. also said in this article that for me, one of the most frustrating things about working at Adobe on the Captivate team was the poor support and customer care Adobe provided to our customers, because it negated all the great things we all did as Evangelists. Bad support and customer care is something you will not find when you become part of the Articulate community, I guarantee you, so this alone is enough to recommend the new Storyline vs. Adobe Captivate.
