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…

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
