These are great observations on the available tools for instructional designers available in the market.
Our products are geared towards an approach where the user interface navigation is familiar to new users and is intuitive on the layout. We are further investigating approaches that focus on updating the user experience, such as an easier onboarding process for new users, and providing contemporary templates to get new instructional designers off and running. Our forte in the industry has, and will always be, to provide the most flexibility to allow advanced instructional designers the ability to create state of the art content.
To your point, we are open to considering new user experience design approaches and are very appreciative of the continued feedback that we receive in this forum.
