Comparing The Top Interactive Video Software Tools for eLearning

Comparing The Top Interactive Video Software Tools for eLearning

Door HiHaHo

We have a passion for interactive video and we work hard to improve our software as much as we can.

That is why we consider ourselves one of the best.

Of course, we know that we’re not alone in this market. There are at least fifty other providers of interactive video software tools.

And that’s not all. There are even more organizations that offer interactive video as a part of their total package.

So how can we say that we have the best software out there?

Every software tool has its own focus due to our different goals and backgrounds. That also means that every tool is the right choice for a specific target audience or target purpose.

It is fair to claim that the title of best software can be classified as subjective.

HiHaHo’s sole focus is how interactive video can be used for online learning, or elearning. And in that area of expertise, we claim to be one of the world’s best tools.

But all statements are worthless without any proof. That is why we did some research. We have looked at other software providers that share our faith in interactive video for online learning.

There is a selfish aspect in that, as we want to understand how we can improve ourselves; that’s no secret. But we would also like to share our findings with others.

When we say we have a passion for online learning, we mean it. And if it so happens that our tool is not the best tool for you, we will tell you where to go. We will gladly provide you with a stepping stone to another tool that will work best with your goals.

You need to be able to choose for yourself which product works for what you want to achieve.

That is our core belief. We are the perfect solution for a specific group of organizations and institutions. They are the ones that will benefit the most from using our product.

But we also want to help you orientate yourself on the international interactive video market. That is why we provide you with some information that will help you in making that choice.



In the table, you can find a list of eight major interactive video tools that you can use for elearning. We compare them based on several criteria. Our main criterion for selecting these tools was that they should specialize in online learning.

The other criteria are other important qualifications for any interactive video tool. Especially those that you want to use for online learning. We looked at

– pricing

– the availability of a free trial

– the kinds of interactions available

– types of integration

– statistics 

Of course, you are in charge of this decision. But we do want to touch upon the highlights of this table for each of the tools.

A positive aspect of all these tools is that you can either sign up for a free trial or a free account for them. This means, that you can try out all tools before you commit to actually spending money on any of them. All of the tools listed are good for online learning. Just to summarize, we’ve listed the pros and cons based on our six criteria.

Op zoek naar de e-kroket voor betere online leerprestaties

E-learning of online leren wint al jaren gestaag aan populariteit. Dit ten koste van de meer traditionele klassikale training. Naast de vele voordelen brengt deze beweging ook nadelen met zich mee. Het belangrijkste nadeel is dat een van de meest populaire snacks aan terrein verliest. De oer-Hollandse kroket vormt al jaren één van de meest cruciale onderdelen van een geslaagde opleiding of training. Is een er digitale variant te vinden van de kroket die hetzelfde positieve effect kan hebben maar dan binnen e-learning programma’s?
