Top Authoring Tools according to Learning Solutions Magazine

The top-seven tools that people reported using, in order of most use to least, are:

  1. Adobe Captivate

  2. Articulate Presenter
  3. Articulate Engage
  4. Adobe Connect

  5. TechSmith Camtasia
  6. Adobe Presenter

  7. Harbinger Raptivity

I find it quite interesting that Adobe holds THREE spots on this list and Articulate TWO spots as well. There is a very nicely done graphic comparison of features in this article as well; given the success I’ve had with the Adobe tools, it intrigues me further to get hold of the latest versions of the Articulate products and try them out again — obviously there’s been some real headway made.

Of course Camtasia is still hanging in there as an old standby, and making pretty nice enhancements along the way.

However, I’m really anxious to see all these tools take on the HTML 5 challenge the way Raptivity seems to be doing most visibly. Guess I’ll stay tuned.
