"Great Tool for Presentations and Short Demos"

What do you like best?

This tool is great for allowing anyone already familiar with PowerPoint to convey reasonably simple and short content asynchronously. It's quick and easy to learn how to use it and even allows for some basic types of quiz questions. You can publish it to your company's Adobe server (if you have one) or as a SCORM package to upload to a traditional LMS. It gives you the choice of recording audio within its own PowerPoint ribbon (not my method of choice) or to import and sync audio created outside of Presenter (which I prefer, because it's easier to edit and maintain.)

I also love that it comes with Adobe Presenter Video Express, which can be used within the Presenter ribbon or as a stand-alone application. It's a very easy way to create short system demos with narration, and allows for zooming and panning, as well as allowing you to intersperse, or even simultaneously show, webcam video.

What do you dislike?

I don't know if this qualifies as a "dislike," per se, but it's important not to try and use this as a full-fledged e-learning authoring tool, as the opportunities it affords for effective practice and feedback is minimal. It's a well-named product, since "Presenter" really is best used for "presentations," rather than bona fide training. There's no real "programming" ability (like being able to use custom actions and variables). I also wish that, when syncing animations to audio narration, if you make a mistake mid-way through a slide, you could re-do just from where you made the mistake on forward, rather than having to resync the whole slide. Also, better audio editing capabilities within the product would make it less necessary to use an external audio editing product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I should add that it also can publish to a mobile-friendly format, for those who need that feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool is best used when what you're trying to create is the online version of someone getting up in front of a large group and making a presentation (rather than trying to do real "training"). As such, we've used it to announce new product features or give general overviews of new products (to be viewed as "pre-work" for an upcoming training session), do short overview demos of new systems (more of a "here's what it can do" than "here's how to do it," although it could be used for micro-learning, if the tasks are very short and simple), and to convey some basic on-boarding info.

"quick and simple way from PowerPoint to E-Learning modules"

What do you like best?

I really appreciate the possibility to create scorm-compatible courses just from a PowerPoint-file.

- You can integrate additional audio files on each slide

- Adobe Presenter converts the triggers from PowerPoint

- Easy localization in various languages

What do you dislike?

The default templates of quiz slides look very old-fashioned. You will definitly have to customize them.

You can not create E-Learning modules from scratch. Everything starts with a PowerPoint file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you expect an intuitive converter from PPTX to swf or html5 then Adobe Presenter is a good choice. In case you would like to create elaborated E-Learning modules you should think about Captivate or Storyline. But as long as you do not have the time to create modules from scratch and you just get the PPTX material from team external experts Adobe Presenter is very helpful.

Know the restrictions of Presenter and don't plan the modules not too complicated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an E-Learning consultant I often face this problem in a lot of companies. Small E-Learning teams should create tons of learning modules without being the SME. The SMEs send the PowerPoint files to these teams and they need software which transforms the PPTX-file into a scorm-compatible Flash or HTML5 format. Adobe Presenter converts the PPTX quickly and allows the producer to create less elaborated e-learning modules very quickly.

What Course Authoring solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Nothing - it seemed pretty easy to use and there were no technical issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It was set up by someone else running a webinar, but as an attendee of the session, I very much enjoyed the format. It was simple and easy to use - a great thing for first time users.

I attended a webinar using this product. It allowed me to meet other teachers and instructional technology educators from different parts of the country - it's all about networking and resources.

I wish the program could be slightly more user friendly and explaining all of the various services it can provide.

This is a great program that helps make presentations more enjoyable!

"Usable for small projects but has bugs "

What do you like best?

The ability to record and add quizzes in one place is nice. I love the interface when doing recordings of the presentation.

What do you dislike?

The amount of time its takes to publish is a little extreme. Adobe should be able to publish projects at a quicker rate. Also, Presenter crashes often when publishing or trying to edit a project.

Also, no way to share projects with others on my team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problems are the inability to share our projects,more importantly the recorded versions with other users.

"Very easy to use and great to work with"

What do you like best?

What I like most about the adobe presenter is that it is very easy to work with. It is a Microsoft Powerpoint Plug in that captures on screen presentations and converts them into more interactive videos. After installing Adobe presenter, I can easily record or import narration for courses.

What do you dislike?

There were no major issues that I have faced with adobe presenter but at times there were web object issues when the web objects were not properly shown while using firefox as a browser but this is relatively an easy fix.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a wonderful software to have if you are into designing interactive e-learning courses

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use the Adobe presenter to transform my powerpoint slides into interactive e learning courses.
