CONS

  • Some of the designs look a bit basic
  • Watermark is very obvious at the bottom of the exported course
  • Doesn’t state which version of SCORM 2004
  • Full screen toggle doesn’t really go full screen
  • WISYWIG editor is a bit limited

IN CONCLUSION

I give isEasy Author a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Well, they weren’t lying, it IS EASY. This tool is very user friendly and super easy to use if you want to build a course. Even for someone who is new to building eLearning courses and material.

It provides a simple to use click to add interface with a range of preset slide designs that are fully customizable. There are some limitations in the text formatting but that is neither here nor there – an example being the lack of bullet point styles.

The best thing about isEasy is the game slides. There are a few templates in the free version that you can use and adjust to fit your content. They add a nice interactive and engaging aspect to you courses without the need for complicated back-end mechanics.

How does isEasy compare against Articulate Rise? In some aspects, I’d say isEasy is more user-friendly and engaging when it comes to the types of interactions and slide types that can be used. A big loss for Articulate Rise is the lack of the game type of interaction that can be created with in it. However, yes, you could embed a game custom block in Rise but would need to be built in Storyline 360, H5P or similar external application – thus then removing the simplicity and ease of use.

Articulate Rise on the other hand does not have a limit on the number of content blocks that you can add to your course. isEasy is limited to 20 content blocks in the Express version which is similar to Rise. Perhaps this limit is increased with a paid plan but there is no information about it on the website.

Overall, it is a very good tool.
