Pre-2013 comments

“A great elearning author tool, we now use this for many projects as it means our clients can edit the content. It doesn’t do ‘everything’ but what is does it does well.” Rob Hubbard

“This is my favourite tool for rapid design, particularly in it’s better integrated and more versatile 09 version.” Clive Shepherd

“Along with its big brother, Articulate Presenter, Engage is rapidly becoming a key part of my content development strategy. With Engage, I can quickly produce good-looking Flash-based materials with embedded media navigated using one of a set of pre-defined interfaces. These interfaces include (among others) a timeline, concentric rings, image hotspots, pyramids with layers and FAQs. Yes, you are limited to the interfaces available. But they pretty much cover most situations. I use Engage when I need to deliver something that looks good and covers a small amount of content. As a component part of a content strategy it’s ideal.”  Mark Berthelemy

“Presenter – Great tool for PowerPoint conversions, especially for quick turnaround compliance course creation.Quizmaker – Just plain works when you pair this with Articulate Presenter.  Need standard knowledge checks in your presentation? Works well all the time.” Ed Lamaster
