About Adobe Learning Manager

Adobe Learning Manager is a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) with a learner-focused environment, offering multiple learning options and course formats, unified playback of most eLearning content types, gamification, AI-based recommendations and social learning.

A single platform for all digital learning needs - Adobe Learning Manager helps deliver stellar learning experiences to employees, partners and customers alike.

The learner dashboard allows learners to view their progress through their enrolled courses, a map of their attained skills, and recommended courses. Adobe Learning Manager also includes customizable gamification features, and learners’ points earned from course completions and awarded badges can be viewed on their dashboards, with information on activities that can be undertaken to earn more. Leaderboards can also be launched from the dashboard, comparing a single learner’s score to those of their peers.

Adobe’s fluidic player enables the playback of eLearning content in multiple formats, including videos, PowerPoint presentations, Word documents, PDFs, and more, with no plugins needed to use the player. Learners can bookmark course sections and add notes to specific points in the content for later reference.

Users can upload reference content into Adobe Learning Manager, giving learners access to information needed for or useful to their roles, without the need to enrol in any courses. Programs can be set up to allow learners to self-enrol, or to require either manager nomination of learners, or manager approval of enrolments. Users can also build personalized dashboards to track activity in real time, including events, assessments, interactions, course progression, and skill attainments.

The award-winning artificial intelligence ensures that the right course recommendations are made based on learner history, course history, skills and interests.

The detailed reporting dashboards offers an array of customized reports to make informed decisions.

The software meets our needs, and hosts all content we need. It takes a lot of learning to grasp the system, and you will be doing most of the learning on your own. Certainly a competitive service. Definitely worth your consideration.

Pros

This software has all the features that you may be looking for in an LMS. It has some CRM features, can host all standard e-learning file types, has a social learning function, and allows for a solid user experience.

Cons

I didn't like how there is no method to execute all functions on the LMS without swapping between user profiles. Admin has certain permissions, as does the author and learner roles. It's your responsibility to learn which profile type does what.

Additionally, the customer service is quite slow. If you're looking for quick support on the service, you'd be better off troubleshooting on your own. I rarely get an appointment with my CapPrime rep within the same week I request it.

Finally, the system is inexpensive, but requires a big upfront cost. They currently only offer a 3-year commitment plan to the service. If I would've known about the speed of customer service I would've reconsidered our choice.

RAE Corp - Captivate Prime Review

Reviewed on 17/5/2019

It has been good. I wouldn't say great. The customer support is good, very responsive and friendly but often they don't have a solution or explanation for what I need help with. The product is good. It's user friendly but sometimes it can be glitchy and doesn't seem to accommodate every thing that we need it to do in a manufacturing facility.

Pros

I like the new social aspects, developing content and always having fresh content is a huge tasks and I have a very small team so I can see how that will be extremely helpful especially for professional positions.
It is very easy to use, I demo's several learning management systems before deciding and this one seemed most practical and affordable.
My rep is great and very responsive.

Cons

The reports. It does an okay job of reporting what activities have taken place, but there is still a lot of information that we need that we cannot easily get. We have to do a lot of manipulating in excel to get the info we need. Examples: who can who has logged in but it doesn't tell you who hasn't logged in. You cannot export a report from the content library to easily see what all content exists in the system. Admins don't get notified or have a central place to review what is happening in the social aspect of the system or course discussion boards so it is very hard to control and make sure people don't post anything that would be considered unprofessional or misleading.
We need our employees to engage in and track their hands on training but they work in a manufacturing setting, they aren't at computers all day, they don't have access, and most don't know how, to upload a document to confirm they completed an activity module.
Because many of our employees don't have computer access on the shop floor they also don't have work email accounts so it would be extremely helpful for them to receive push notifications via text messaging, I know that currently exists for billing and password recovery I don't understand why it isn't possible for enrollment notifications.
Supervisors cannot communicate or do evaluations with their employees through the system. I know several LMS systems we demo'd did include that, I was suprised that Adobe didn't have something like that.

Reasons for Switching to Adobe Learning Manager

You viewed several others that I cannot remember right now. Because Adobe has a reputation for creating great products. It's cloud based, it was affordable, and appeared to be user friendly, and some of the sales reps for the other products were not as responsive as we would have liked. We believed it accommodated more of our needs than it actually currently does.

Overall it works solid as LMS software and allows employees to learn via mobile devices - which is our biggest request/need. I think it could be better, but currently, it fulfills our needs. If scores and adaptable elements were saved better I think it would be perfect! We do enjoy using if for our learning platform and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Pros

Adobe learning as a portal/service is extremely fluid and functional. We have multiple courses and they are easy to manage and access for all of our employees. They are known as the industry leader and thus they garner more customers than other LMS, but that requires them to upkeep the software and that is a large benefit for us as the customer / consumer. The learning portals do work well and the tests are good when you are navigating them.

Cons

I wish it did a better job of saving test scores/certifications. Sometimes our employees will finish a class but the scores they tested with don't save and they have to attempt again. This is a technical issue we have asked for help with - so they provided a button to submit as support - which was nice, but we still have the issue.
