Hello Captivate Rock Stars young and old. I’ve been plugging away on this one for a while now – in part because I realize how really central it is to understanding Captivate as a whole. I’ve always been fascinated by learning, but there is one phenomenon in learning which I find particularly Continue reading…

I love word clouds. You know, those cool clusters of words that give instant summary of concepts by making words bigger and bolder the more times they are used somewhere. Today I thought it would be fun to show you how you can make wicked cool word clouds based on your Adobe Captivate (and even Microsoft PowerPoint) projects in just Continue reading…

People often ask me how I got such a clean cutout of an image in Adobe Captivate 5. The answer is that it’s pretty easy with eLearning Suite 2, because Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Captivate 5 work together to make for a simple solution to complex problems like that one. Sure, it’s easy to get a clean selection when all the background pixels are the same color, but what do you do when you need to clip a foreground object or figure and the subject and the background are far more complex?

In November (2010) I had the pleasure of joining the extraordinary community of eLearning, training and university educators who attended the Media and Learning: Brussels 2010 Conference. I was thrilled to give one of the plenary keynotes, and wowwed by the strong positive feedback overall as well as the wonderful new friends and colleagues I encountered at the event.
The good folks at Media & Learning have since placed both the slide deck and an abbreviated video (about 20 of the 35 minutes) online. You may also Continue reading…

I couldn’t resisted the opportunity to highlight the growing number of lowercase aTtachments to various terms in an attempt to describe efficiently the evergrowing array of associations.
