"Great software and customer support"

Comments: Productive developing of eLearning material, notably SCORM and good customer support

Pros: A good free version for evaluation and reasonably priced licenses.
Easy to use and works great in HTML5 and SCORM to upload to LMS or other sites.
Great customer support via the forum or email.

Cons: Hard to use javascript (at least for version 6) as no scripting references are available.
This would be helpful as certain action in the interactive part are missing. e.g. a play/resume button - but support is available.

Thank you for your positive review, Michael.
Regarding Javascript support, we've made great improvements in the latest ActivePresenter 7 version with well documented Javascript API and an improved built-in editor.
We also added support for multi-state object and other interactions.
Best Regards,
ActivePresenter Team.

"A complete and well-designed software for creating interactive HTML5 elearning contents."

Comments: For me, ActivePresenter is perfect as an all-in-one elearning authoring package!

Pros: I use ActivePresenter now for almost 3 years! I am very proud of showing my presentations to all my colleagues. The interactivity and the user-friendly approach is so great!
As a Physics Teacher, after many years, I finally found the ultimate solution to cope with the modern students needs. ActivePresenter makes teaching active, dynamic, `flashing and student-related.
All my lessons are `packed in ActivePresenter. I also incorporate the necessary text-to-speech fragments; this makes me feel completely relieved and at ease, because prepared to `cope with the group of `youngsters in the classroom.
These moments in front of the classroom are accompanied with e-learning activities. ActivePresenter presentations have full interactive options; students are really enthusiastic to work independently on tasks, modules, interactive quizzes and hard-core-physics-exercises.
Here are a few of the many things I like about the software:
Easy `basic-down-to-earth PowerPoint-like presentations with automated output; (even here, the possibilities are 100-fold compared to other tools!).
Built-in audio/video editing capabilities.
Interactive elements are available to guide the audience by an adapted path, fitting the situation or the need of the audience.
Various types of questions/quizzes.
All the results of the students can easily be stored in an LMS (with SCORM or xAPI support). You can also make an automated link to Google Spreadsheets to follow up the results!

Cons: A little bit of learning curve before you can explore all the possibilities of the software. (but after all, there is a very elaborated manual and a supporting help-desk!)

Thank you very much for the review!
ActivePresenter has too many features that some first time users may find it a little bit to get started, that's why we're making more and more beginner's tutorials and our support is always there to help.

"Best User-Friendly Screen Recording Software with Built-in Features"

Comments: Great product. It's built to compete with other big-budget screen recording softwares, but doesn't get the credit it deserves.

Pros: Most of the budget programs for screen recording have limitations that make their software unusable for professional projects. ActivePresenter has many features that are useful for even the most professionally created projects.

Cons: I wish the green "play" button was a little bigger. I click it often and I would like to see it be a little easier to click on and I'm usually moving around with my mouse like a crazy person.

"Easy but not the best to edit your videos or presentations."

Comments: It can save you from an emergency, but I wouldn't use it regularly.

Pros: It's relatively easy to use, gets the job done. Intuitive in most of the processes and light in space on your PC.

Cons: The outcomes are not the best and the could be a lot of disappointments and frustration when editing.

Thank you for the review.
Can you please help by being more specifc about the Cons so we know what to improve?
- "The outcomes are not the best": What types of outcomes you're referring to? And what are the (typical) issues with those outcomes?
- Frustration when editing: can you give several examples? What editing functionilty make you frustrated?
Thank you!

"I lived using it"

Comments: I have loved using it sincerely for the many screen sessions i have made with my system. I absolutely love it, and how it also produces very high quality videos for free. Quite nice

Pros: I used activepresenter to record my online classes and render some other videos, and i lived the record video feature, with the software simulation feature, makes explaining of processes much better

Cons: I didn't like the fact that it kept crashing when i directly try to export my videos, or even the fact that it takes too long to begin recording or doesn't even record at all some times. Maybe it is my PC, but ActivePresenter is the usual application that behaves this way, I lost a few of my recordings to this crashing.
