With Adobe Presenter 8, we added a new video recording feature known as the Adobe Presenter Video Creator. It is a big hit with the training folks and allows you to create video-based lectures and demonstrations with ease! But, as Adobe Presenter is only available on Windows platform, the Mac users were not able to benefit from this.
So here’s Adobe Presenter Video Express, an exclusive app for Mac users that they can download from the Mac App Store and create stunning, studio-quality videos with ease. It allows you to minimize the time, effort, and cost of producing and editing videos by doing it yourself without specialized equipment or training. You can simultaneously capture video feeds of yourself and your screen, and easily mix and edit them to create experiences as impactful as real life.

I don’t usually talk about buying and selling our eLearning products. I suppose to some this might seem strange. After all, I do work for Adobe and we do make some amazing software. When asked about it I’ll usually say, “I just show how the software works and talk about eLearning, the products pretty much sell themselves.” And honestly, that’s true. The teams continue to improve the products so quickly that I’m almost always able to say “Yes, we can do that.”
So why a post about subscriptions. Well today is a very special day. It’s a day of a promise fulfilled. Today, subscription, Adobe Software Assurance (ASA) and other customers who have various forms of subscription agreements will get early access to Adobe Captivate features in Continue reading…

There is a fundamental problem that exists in the typical business workplace today. Chances are that you or someone in your office is already painfully aware of it. We’ve seen an explosion in the number of people whose jobs are directly related to their expertise, and for whom ‘what they know’ has become a kind of ‘insurance’ plan.
Have you ever heard a colleague proclaim “If I’m the only one who knows how to do this, ‘they’ can never fire me.” We’ve all heard similar comments and perhaps even nodded along, or said the words ourselves. But what is the actual cost of this kind of environment of knowledge hoarding. Research in fact suggests that it cuts much Continue reading…
