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.

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…

There is nothing like a trip to remind us that life’s journey’s are our only real destinations. Whether you ascribe such wisdom to Chinese Proverbs or “One Tree Hill”, the wisdom in recognizing that the process is more important than the product is universal and ageless.

When we use PowerPoint as an authoring environment, we end up making our courses look like presentations, as the default slide designs and layouts we have at our disposal are very few. Moreover these layouts are specifically designed for presentations and not for creating eLearning content. But not anymore!
With the all new Adobe Presenter 8, you have the freedom to choose a perfect layout that exactly matches your eLearning content type. You can seamlessly use these layouts with scenes, characters, images, and animations to bring your eLearning courses to life. These layouts are specially designed to be used for eLearning courses and adapt neatly with the design theme you have used to create your Adobe Presenter course.
Exciting, isn’t it? Continue reading…
What’s even more exiting is that you do not have to create two separate courses for Desktop and device consumption. Just publish your course as a SWF and the same course works beautifully on both your iPad and Desktop. You can also track your AICC compliant and Connect courses when accessing them on the iPad. Can’t believe? Even I couldn’t believe it, when I first heard it from the engineers, so I gave it a spin and here are the steps I followed to create and view the course on iPad.
I created a short course on Hospital Hygiene with Continue reading…
Adobe eSeminar: Creating a Knowledge Sharing Community & Culture with Adobe Presenter 8 Video Creator
Date and time: Wednesday, 19th Sept, 2012 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM US/Pacific
Join Dr. Allen Partridge, Adobe eLearning Evangelist for a discussion and demonstration centered on knowledge sharing in your organization. Business communication today is growing increasingly dependent on clean, well-produced video content, and corporate culture has sent forth a clarion call to leverage internal knowledge in order to cut costs and protect the business process understanding resident in virtually every knowledge worker. This is sometimes a stark contrast to a prevailing knowledge hoarding culture. How can your organization facilitate both the cultural changes needed and the technological innovation required to move from knowledge protection to knowledge sharing within the group? Dr. Partridge will discuss the issues and demonstrate the technologies. You’ll learn how you can spearhead the knowledge revolution in your organization.
