Book Review: Adobe Captivate 6 Essentials and Beyond Essentials by Kevin Siegel

Picture1By now you must have realized that I love reading books, especially if they are related to eLearning, Instructional Design, mLearning, or Captivate. This time I picked up books authored by Kevin Siegel, who is a fantastic trainer and a fabulous person with a great sense of humor.

I’ve attended some of his face-to-face and online trainings in the past and he has a magic mantra of keeping the audience engaged in the class throughout the session. There’s absolutely no dull moment in his class and I really admire him for that! So, my self-assigned task while reading these books was to gauge if his books were as engaging and effective as his training sessions are! :)

The mission started with Continue reading…

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…

My First ‘Captivating’ Blog!

Guest Blog by: David Dunbar, Seasoned Educational Professional at Mochrum E-Learning Development

When trying to think of how to begin my first ever ‘official’ blog, I thought about trying to make some profound or controversial statement, to provoke a response amongst the Captivate community! However, when it comes to Education, it would be difficult to say something very new or different, as teaching and learning affects absolutely every single person, in the whole wide world!

From nurseries, to adult education, kindergartens to IT courses for the elderly, we all learn, and are taught, which makes the job of the educational technologist difficult yet exciting, puzzling yet challenging, all in equal measure!

Therefore, rather than beginning my very first Captivate blog with a profound or controversial question, intended to make an impact, I offer a small but perfectly formed conundrum -

How can Captivate be used by educationists to cope with the puzzling, challenging, fun and infuriating world of education today? Continue reading…

Update available for Adobe Presenter Mobile App!

We recently released an update for Adobe Presenter Mobile App for iPad. It has few bug fixes, as well as some enhancements. To showcase these enhancements, I thought of creating a Presenter course.

When I was immersed in the thoughts of which topic to choose, I heard my third grader mumbling ‘What makes living things different?’, and that instantly became the topic for my course. Before we look at that fun course that I worked on, let’s talk about enhancements we have introduced in this update: Continue reading…
