Nir Malchy

Easy tutorial creator - big time saver

2020-07-30

I use iorad in the help article for our clients and for internal training. The clients love it, and it is used as an example to the quality of the self-hep part of the software.

Pros

Easy to use Integrates with many platforms Loved by the clients

Cons

Embedding can get complicated with the change of the UI Canot combine two slide-shows Narrating does not do a good job with dots and commas.

Love this Application

2019-06-28

Many of the administrators and teachers who have asked for support guides with our SIS system, have been very happy with the videos that I have created and sent them.

Pros

What I like most about this application is that I can produce quick tutorial videos with real time step by step instructions where users can follow along.

Cons

It will generate voice over for the text automatically which is a great feature.

Hands down my FAVORITE app!

2019-06-18

Pros

Better yet, is the LIVE function, where a user can see prompts to guide them click by click through a process in real time on the site.

Cons

The product development is very responsive to client feedback. The software just keeps getting better and better.

Step-by-Step Made Easy

2019-06-14

This tool has helped me be successful in creating instructional design solutions for my work and for my grad school projects.

Pros

The overall design experience and features are great for the type of work I do.

Cons

Has minimal design changes to the cover pages to personalize the tutorials more.

Excellent software and saves a considerable amount of time

2020-08-05

We use it to create quick instructional videos for our products mainly for operational purposes, less so marketing a product itself.

Pros

Helpscout, means that we can publish articles straight to our knowledge base - Having used other software that traces interactions, or tracks clicking of elements, I've found this very reliable in terms of achieving the desired output - If you're not overly fussed about refining your demo, you could record one within minutes that is suitable for demonstrating how to perform an action.

Cons

I occasionally come across bugs, but they're generally dealt with very quickly by the Iorad team - I'd say the cost is fair value for the time saving but I can see it prohibiting wider uptake as it's not on the low end of the scale

Essential for Trainers and Educators

2019-06-18

With iorad, it takes a fraction of the time to create a tutorial and it is extremely easy to file away and reuse for other learners that need the same help.

Pros

I also very much like how iorad keeps a library of my tutorials and has an easy search feature.

Cons

I would like to be able to print off the steps in PDF format for free.

Iorad - Click and Learn

2019-02-20

Created 3 click-throughs for an ed-based platform, and plan on doing it again!

Pros

I loved that I could make a solid click-through tutorial or how-to for our staff.

Cons

My only issue is that the first time staff saw it, they weren't clear what to do.

The best tool to add to your toolbox

2019-07-01

With the tutorials that include a live feature, and audio voiceover, you are able to create seamless steps for users that guarantee they understand what you are trying to teach.

Pros

Iorad is simple to learn and use, and the design is attractive that makes people want to use the end product!

Cons

Nothing! It is a great tool that allows you to accomplish almost everything!

Good Tool

2019-06-28

Great! I think it is a tool with great potential.

Pros

It brings a real value added in the step by step exercise.

Cons

It can improve in terms of features. it is not stable (I guess it is for a moment : still improving). But be more careful and inform users in advance, so they can save work.

Easy to create and maintain

2019-06-28

Creating and maintaining SOPs is also very easy with a walk-through tutorial since steps that needs updating, adding, removing are obvious to spot when you are literally walking through the process again.

Pros

Both the ability to use the link and the embed. The audio is also very nice to use.

Cons

I'm not sure I'm a fan of the new UI panel...

iorad is great for process documentation

2019-06-17

This software has saved countless hours for our staff, allowed parents and students to find answers even when we're closed, and helped us with documentation.

Pros

The new smart masking feature works great and saves time over the prior masking.

Cons

There isn't any mechanism to add pictures or crop pages.

Love working with iorad

2020-07-31

When we went to remote learning due to COVID 19, the great quality of the tutorials made the student's learning of the material easy & effective.

Pros

What I liked best was the voice over feature. I could easily just retype instructions & it correct the voice over.

Cons

If you could see a thumbnail of each slide (similar to PowerPoint) it would be easier

2020-08-07

Pros

This platform has cut my daily training time in half!

Cons

Our teachers would LOVE to use this with their students, but unfortunately licenses are tied to one persons email so it's difficult to allow them to do so.

Nice Rapid Development Tool

2020-07-30

It's been an overall positive experience to use this tool. It has limited features compared to something like Captivate, but it works pretty smoothly and allows me to get things done very quickly.

Pros

I can create and publish software tutorials in no time.

Cons

It would be nice if there were more editing tools like being able to add additional highlights or shapes. It would also help if I could import an image.

Response from iorad


Hi Darrell - Thanks for the review! We will take your feedback & consider it for future enhancement. As for the image upload- while you can't technically "upload", here is a great way to include images in your tutorials.

My thoughts on Iorad

2019-06-28

Pros

Iorad is a useful and innovative tool that gather the following pros in my opinion: - Easy to use, to manage, to learn - Time saving - Good Customer Service

Cons

The cons I will list for Iorad are due to the fact that the development of the solution is still ongoing. Some new features will be appreciated, such as a "drag and drop" of the steps. Moreover, some bug are still existing.

Game Changer for Documenting Processes

2020-07-30

Using iorad has been a time and cost saver from me and my company.

Pros

I like that it records every click, scroll, and key stroke; while taking screen shots with the highlighted area where the action occurred. If I was to try and recreate this manually it would take 10 times as long.

Cons

Sometimes the desktop recording does not load up to the website. This only happens occasionally and then only with very long recordings.

Easy, professional training in minutes.

2019-06-14

We have a very limited team to support our Salesforce instance of over 300 sales users in Canada.

Pros

iorad makes it incredibly easy to create training videos or walk-throughs that users can experience at their own pace.

Cons

Not really a dislike, but it would be nice to have the ability to have the training be read in French during the walk-through.

Ease of Use

2019-06-28

Their customer service is very responsive and they send me emails updates on new features.

Pros

All I have to do in making the interactive tutorial is point and click. iorad will actually write each step for me. I can complete my tutorial in less than 3 minutes and it will come out looking extremely professional and people think I spent hours making the tutorial.

Cons

Really, the only thing I could possibly ding iorad on (and this would only be me nick-picking) is when I make it a pdf, it crops out a significant amount of the screenshot. But again, this really isn't a big deal.

Best tutorial device out there

2019-06-28

Pros

I love that it is so easy to start and go through the tutorial making process, I am one of the main technology implementation people at my schools and it works so easily that it takes me less time to create the tutorial than it takes me to figure out the program I’m making a tutorial for.

Cons

I wish there was a little more flex with what the walkthrough looks like, I haven’t used the premium version before so this maybe something that I just have access to.
