Getting Started with Adobe Presenter: Editing Videos

Guest post by Kevin Siegel, Founder and President, IconLogic, Inc.

You’ll be happy to learn that Presenter offers a wonderfully simplistic way to edit inserted videos (without having to leave Presenter and start a third-party video editing tool).

Slide Video

Adobe Presenter supports several types of video formats including Windows media files (afs, wmv, mpg), Quick Time files (mp4, dv, dvi, mov, and 3g) and Flash Video (flv).

What is a Flipped Classroom and How Can It Help Me?

Child standing upside downFlipped Classroom (sometimes called flipped teaching) is an approach to education that blends both online instruction and offline learning.

Creating and adding Custom Scenario Interactions in Adobe Presenter 9

Adobe Presenter Senario InteractionsScenarios and near-real stories add life to eLearning courses and make the content look and sound more meaningful. It also makes it easy for the students to understand concepts by looking at the examples and taking decisions in the scenario. They get a perfect simulated environment to practice the skills or modify behavior and the best part with scenario-based learning is that they are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them, without causing any harm whatsoever.

In spite of these benefits, you will find very few people creating scenario-based courses. Most of them rather settle for information-heavy eLearning courses. They confess that they understand the value of creating a scenario-based course, but they opt for a page-turner as it takes a lot of effort and time to design and build scenarios. So to lessen the burden for eLearning developers, we’ve introduced scenario templates in Adobe Presenter 9 which can be used to build decision points inside an eLearning course. It’s pretty easy to use these templates. Watch this short video to learn about the workflow: Continue reading…
