What's new in this version:
Version 8.0 updates versions of Presenter, Quizmaker, and Engage.
Easily integrate the different programs all in powerpoint which is a familiar program to begin with.
The 30 day trial was awesome, we are a small company going the elearning route and 1400 was just way too much. However, I found a website that sells it for a fraction of the cost: www.buyarticulate.weebly.com. Got the full version for only $150
I loved the software. The layout makes it so easy to start using as it's very similar to powerpoint in quizmaker and engage. The presenter integration into powerpoint is genious! All I had to do was create my quizzes or engage interactions, then insert them wherever i wanted them in my course. It made development time way faster. The previews also allow you to view what you have so far and how it looks as you go along.
I do wish the quizmaker was a little bit more robust as far as grading and testing options. It would be nice to be able to assign negative points for wrong answers and divide a test into different sections. Also, maybe I missed it, but there was no way to get score reports by category or group, which would have been helpful as I am using it for standardized testing as well.
The big drawback for articulate for me was the price. For a startup elearning company, $1400 was just way too much. It broke my heart until I found www.buyarticulate.weebly.com which has the fully functional version for only $150. I was a little skeptical because it seemed too good to be true, but I went with it and they are legit. I got the whole studio, not a trial version, for a fraction of the cost. It was awesome, now if they would just upgrade their quizmaker. . .
