  1. Hi Mike, Remember me?
    We made Flash exercises together for your first video clips videos back in '99, when flash was new and exciting, and the video clips were tiny. I left Europe to work for a small company in Miami Beach in 2004 .
    I've been teaching 4 employees with little web experience how to use easy training programs, and we tried out the PP QuizMaker. I liked it a lot, but the boss wanted to use Quizlet for some reason. I never understood why. Have you tried that one too? It doesn't have many professional features, but it sure beats hot potatoes.
    After finding your blog, I'm sending you another message as email. I just wanted to say publicly that I do agree with what you say about Pro Profs here - It's got just about everything going for it. I'll send you my Skype name in the email.

  2. Hi Birgit, of course I remember you! I still have those flash exercises on my site, simply because they're truly excellent and still get lots of hits despite the rather small size of the 3 videos we used.
    It looks like you haven't got a google account, or if you do, you were not logged into it when you made your comment, since it comes from "Anonymous".

  3. Sounds like a very useful program. I am a personal user of Adobe Captivate, which is both expensive and doesn't work on non-flash devices. The latter is a huge drawback, since I am trying to build a blog where all of my learning materials can be accessed with either a mobile device or a computer. I know my iPhone does not work with Flash, so that cuts out a huge market even if Flash works on Android phones. Also being in an Educational Technology Master's program makes me even more interested in ProProfs. Very insightful and useful post you've got here!

  4. Thanks Ryan, It's been working out well. I bought an iPhone just to test it, but I have no feedback from Android users yet. I would be most grateful if someone could tell me how it looks on a Samsung Galaxy for example:

  5. I thank you for this informative post and sharing it with us.

  6. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this issue, it might not
    be a taboo subject but typically folks don't talk about these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

  7. Hello Anonymous of June 15, 2013,
    There have been bugs - but there are bugs everywhere. The important point is that the people who use the mobile site like the quizzes I make with ProProfs.
    The bugs seem to come and go. But I wrote this post almost 6 months ago, it's been a positive experience in general with no bug reports for over 6 weeks.

  8. Hi there! I've been exploring to create some e-learning stuff and I've stumbled upon this post. I haven't used proprofs. Looks like a good testing tool. I will try it out. Thanks to you!

    1. Yes Cynthia, it's certainly worth trying out! If you're like me, you'll like the ease of use for professional results.
