Training: Optimal Design For Multiple Devices using Adobe Captivate

Topic: Optimal Design For Multiple Devices using Adobe Captivate

Date and time: Thursday, July 10, 2014 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM US/Pacific

Description: In 2013, the sale of smartphones exceeded the sale of traditional phones while the sale of tablets exceeded those of standard PCs. This trend has lead to more clients who want online courses that can be accessed from both mobile and desktop devices. Because the technology is different, developing courses for both devices have unique attributes. The dilemma is – do we develop two separate courses that contain the same material but are published on different devices? Who wants to update the same course twice? So the approach then, is to craft a single course that provides optimal viewing and an effective learning experience across a wide range of devices. Anita Horsley and Karen Blades will present how to develop eLearning/mLearning course that have a professional look and feel, and provide an effective learning environment for students. This presentation is geared toward designers and non-designers alike to improve learning objectives using successful design techniques when publishing to both mobile and desktop devices.

Presenter Header Image

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, President of eLearningArt, a company that provides thousands of eLearning templates and images, and author of the Assets eLearning Blog.

eLearning Characters make Great Presenters

In my last guest post, I talked about how you can use characters as eLearning avatars or guides in your eLearning courses. In addition to using characters as avatars, you can also use characters as presenters. For example, you could use a presenter as:

  • A teacher in front of a blackboard
  • 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…

Announcing Adobe Presenter 8 with new support for 64-bit MS PowerPoint.

You are no longer forced to use the 32-bit version of MS Office, just because you want to create PowerPoint based eLearning. The new 64-bit Presenter 8 now works with your 64-bit MS PowerPoint.

How do you find out if you have 32-bit or 64-bit of MS-Office? It’s very simple, open MS PowerPoint and go to File> ‘About Microsoft PowerPoint’> … it would show you if it is 32-bit or 64-bit.

Do remember, there are separate installers for 32-bit and 64-bit version of Adobe Presenter. So, when you are downloading the installer, make sure you select the correct one.

Download the Adobe Presenter 8 64-bit version here.

Use Avatar Characters to Guide your Learners

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, author of the Assets eLearning Blog and President of eLearningArt.com, a stock photo site for the eLearning industry.

Introduction to Using Avatars

In my last post, I introduced the idea that characters can be used in a number of ways in your eLearning course. Now I’d like to start with the first example: eLearning avatars. An avatar is probably the most common use that I see in eLearning courses. Some common characteristics of an avatar in a course are that they:

  • Are designed to guide a learner through the course
  • Speak directly to the learner

Avatar images are easier to find than images for Continue reading…

Post 1: 7 techniques for using characters to liven up your eLearning

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, author of the Assets eLearning Blog and President of eLearningArt.com, a stock photo site for the eLearning industry.

How most people use characters

One thing I notice when hosting workshops is that the first time users try to insert character images, the end product looks about the same for all users: they use the character as an avatar and the full character (head to toe) is in the viewable area. Continue reading…

No More Excuses to Boring Presentation-like eLearning Courses!

When we use PowerPoint as an authoring environment, we end up making our courses look like presentations, as the default slide designs and layouts we have at our disposal are very few. Moreover these layouts are specifically designed for presentations and not for creating eLearning content. But not anymore!

With the all new Adobe Presenter 8, you have the freedom to choose a perfect layout that exactly matches your eLearning content type. You can seamlessly use these layouts with scenes, characters, images, and animations to bring your eLearning courses to life. These layouts are specially designed to be used for eLearning courses and adapt neatly with the design theme you have used to create your Adobe Presenter course.

Exciting, isn’t it? Continue reading…
