    "Extremely Buggy"

    January 16, 2012  |   By Donkeys333

    Version: Raptivity Essential 7.7

    Pros

    Raptivity is based on a solid premise; students want a more fun and interactive way to learn new things. Raptivity has a lot of interactions and additional packs that you can purchase, the templates can be customized, and there is an in-product record function. When they work, they are a lot of fun and can promote learning for most users.

    Cons

    It's great to have so many add-ons, unfortunately, most of them are based on flawed activities or excessive restriction, that are completely useless. One example would be the classification exercise limits the # of characters so that few words fit. Other bugs include: voice-over recordings that don't stop recording after you press stop, fonts that are available to use in the interactions but are not embedded. So when your customer or student sees the activity, it looks completely different.

    Other interactions are just flawed in their outcomes. For example, Snakes and Ladders often the student will either finish the game without using all the questions, or run out of questions to use. There is no standard outcome. The same is true with Tic-Tac-Toe, the game ends, and the student barely answered anything.

    When using the mazes, the cursor doesn't move correctly and the entire game is so frustrating most students quit before they complete it. The list of issues is very long.

    Summary

    If you do choose to purchase, pay close attention as to how the interactions work and the limitations on how you can fit what you need into the templates. In my experience, and I've purchased and used the Standard Pack, the Games Turbo Pack, and the Booster Pack, and there are only a handful of interactions that work correctly and have a positive outcome. If the software was not so buggy, and if the activation procedure not so convoluted, I'd probably buy more. But I'm personally going to invest in the upcoming Articulate Storyline instead and cut my losses.

    Raptivity is VERY expensive and my biggest issue is that even though they say it works on Windows 7, it is very difficult to get it working correctly and takes weeks to resolve.
