I demonstrated this project at the eLearning DemoFest 2012 event, where a variety of solutions for day-to-day eLearning challenges including tools, technologies, and processes are showcased. And the good news is that this course won the Best Soft Skills Course award.
For DemoFest, I used the same course that I’ve shared with you in this blog series, made some cosmetic changes to it along with adding a lightbox-style menu and used some canned interactions to create the Top Issues and New Features pop-ups. I’ll share a few short tutorials on how to create these interactions in a couple of days on the Captivate Tutorials page. Stay tuned!

I’m thrilled to share that Adobe has announced an amazing competition for students and teachers ages 13 and up. It’s an awesome chance to strut your creative stuff and compete for fantastic big money prizes. Top prize is $2000 with a $1000 second prize and a $500 third prize.
Now money can be good. It can even be awesome. But what’s really awesome about this contest is that participants will get a chance to show off their creativity, and express their ideas about a social issue that matters to them. In this contest, entrants will create a short video (using the new Adobe Presenter Video Creator) that explains how they would Change the World for the better. It’s a great opportunity to let others hear your ideas and to demonstrate your creative abilities. Wouldn’t you love a chance to share your ideas and compete for big cash prizes? How about the people you know? You should share this article with your kids, your friends, your family and colleagues. (Hint, hint)
Check out this video to learn more about the competition.
