Have You Checked Out iSpring?

If you are actively involved in the elearning industry then you have undoubtedly heard about the two major players when it comes to rapid elearning development: Articulate and Adobe Captivate.

These two juggernauts are pretty much household names in this field.

When one makes an important update, the other follows with updates of their own.

It can all get kind of… “noisy”, and among that noise there are some other solutions available. Some really good options.

One of those options is iSpring

iSpring Has a Cult Following

Normally cults are a bad thing, but in the case of iSpring it means that they have very passionate and loyal customers, so iSpring must be doing something right.

Now I’ll admit that most of my experience in elearning tools like these are with the two major players I mentioned previously. However, I have had the opportunity to download and use iSpring.

It’s pretty slick.

And easy.

And affordable.

If you have had any experience with Articulate products then you’ll find the transition to iSpring pretty intuitive as their offering leverages PowerPoint similar to Articulate Studio.

While certainly this makes for a familiar user experience, it may also be one reason you choose not to use iSpring. Some elearning professionals loathe the PowerPoint experience when creating their courses. It’s a matter of taste.

I could go on about the various features but it’s probably best if you just visit their feature page.

For the sake of convenience, I’ve included their overview video below to watch if you’re interested.

And in case you were wondering – YES, you can use LearnDash with iSpring đŸ˜‰

    Hi Jason – interesting. how would it integrate with Learn Dash. e.g if I were to use the Quiz function which can be assigned points, would this integrate with the Learn Dash quiz points?

    • Hi Jayne,

      iSpring is a set of tools to create learning objects (screencast, quiz, interactions, simulations, screen recording, converting PowerPoint to videos …). Quiz results are not integrated into the administration of Learndash which itself has an excellent manager for Quiz attractive, useful and reliable.

      In our case, we use iSpring to build interactive lessons.

      For managing the entire course (quiz, certificates, monitoring of student activities, calendar of events, forums …) we use the excellent LCMS Learndash.

      Regards

    Mario, are you saying I can’t use Quiz feature from iSpring and successfully integrate it inside LearnDash?

    I thought using GrassBlade (PRO + Premium) plugin on LearnDash is enough to have all iSpring features (including Quiz) be properly tracked inside LearnDash.

    CAn this be done? I need to know so I know what are limits before getting involved with LearnDash.

    Thank you.
