Adobe have announced the introduction of Adobe Captivate Prime, a new self-service Learning Management System (LMS) that enables learning professionals to easily and efficiently setup, deliver and track any form of learning.
This new cloud-based offering, complements Adobe’s range of eLearning tools (including Adobe Captivate 9), enables specialists in learning and development, training and corporate human resources departments to take charge of the learning environments they manage and boost impact by developing skill-based learning programs.
“We are aware of the challenges that organizations face today in rolling out learning programs and keeping employees engaged,” said Matt Thompson, executive vice president, Worldwide Field Operations at Adobe. “Captivate Prime is designed to make the learning management process intuitive, quick and easy to roll out, so users no longer feel IT dependent. The learner-first approach helps build a culture where employees don’t dodge learning, but embrace it.”
In addition to providing ease-of-use and end-to-end learning management, Captivate Prime helps organizations:
Offer a stimulating learner experience: The new Fluidic Player provides learners with a unified playback experience for virtually any kind of content, so they can seamlessly play videos and access PDFs, PPTs, DOCX, SCORM and AICC-compliant packages, all without having to download plugins – minimizing latency. Fluidic Player also allows learners to bookmark or add explanatory notes at any point in their content, which they can quickly reference later.
Establish a learning culture and deliver impact with gamification: Enable learners to view their progress within a personal dashboard that indicates courses completed or pending, recommended courses, skills attained, badges received and information on activities that can earn them more badges and points. The dashboard also launches a leaderboard where learners can compare their performance against peers. Additionally, the dashboard recognizes and rewards learners when they exhibit qualities such as initiative and involvement, or when they achieve specific learning milestones.
Deliver mobile learning even when offline: Now learners can resume learning even when they are offline. The Adobe Captivate Prime app downloads learning content onto a tablet, makes it available for offline access and auto syncs when the learner is back online.
Maximize learning impact: Achieve business goals faster by developing new skills and closing skill gaps. Organizations can now get actionable insights by tracking all online, offline and certification training taught to their employees or external partners.
Adobe Captivate Prime is priced at US$48 per year per registered user and is exclusively available in the English language.
