Soft Skills / Scenario Based Training Full Source Example for #AdobeCaptivate

1B_FinalA few months ago I began working with a very talented team of developers from eLearning Brothers. Together we conceived and created a very cool soft skills training module using Adobe Captivate called ‘Quarantine.’

Quarantine is a scenario based / soft skills training module designed to teach new officers at a prisoner of war camp how to engage with prisoners and respond to prisoner requests. The catch? It’s a POW camp for Aliens.

The basic story is that Aliens known as the Lacertae have invaded earth and that there are now Aliens being held in various Prisoner of War Camps around the planet and in orbit. You are a part Continue reading…

#AdobeCaptivate & #eLearning Suite: Subscription Has its Advantages:

exclusiveupdateI don’t usually talk about buying and selling our eLearning products. I suppose to some this might seem strange. After all, I do work for Adobe and we do make some amazing software. When asked about it I’ll usually say, “I just show how the software works and talk about eLearning, the products pretty much sell themselves.” And honestly, that’s true. The teams continue to improve the products so quickly that I’m almost always able to say “Yes, we can do that.”

So why a post about subscriptions. Well today is a very special day. It’s a day of a promise fulfilled. Today, subscription, Adobe Software Assurance (ASA) and other customers who have various forms of subscription agreements will get early access to Adobe Captivate features in Continue reading…

  • A news anchor with a TV behind him
  • An employee with a clipboard (or in front of a whiteboard or on a stage) Continue reading…

Why Your Organization Should Support a Knowledge Sharing Culture

Segretaria stressataThere is a fundamental problem that exists in the typical business workplace today. Chances are that you or someone in your office is already painfully aware of it. We’ve seen an explosion in the number of people whose jobs are directly related to their expertise, and for whom ‘what they know’ has become a kind of ‘insurance’ plan.

Have you ever heard a colleague proclaim “If I’m the only one who knows how to do this, ‘they’ can never fire me.” We’ve all heard similar comments and perhaps even nodded along, or said the words ourselves. But what is the actual cost of this kind of environment of knowledge hoarding. Research in fact suggests that it cuts much Continue reading…
