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.
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.

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.

There’s an astonishing new technology in the newly released Adobe Presenter 8. Now anyone can easily create compelling personalized videos from the comfort of their own desk. Check out this video to get a sense of what I’m talking about.
Losing knowledge because people change jobs, move on or leave is a very expensive liability for every company. In addition to the inherent problem – creating a community which shares rather than hoards knowledge – can be an enormous asset to any business. Wise companies have embraced Continue reading…
The new subscription plan that we introduced has been received with a lot of enthusiasm, and has been heralded as a possible game changer in our eLearning industry. One of the key drivers for this pricing model was that- in today’s environment, technology and market changes happen way too rapidly for customers to be satisfied with an 18 month release cycle. Going forward, Captivate, Presenter and eLearning Suite will have much more frequent releases. With this in perspective, the subscription pricing model makes it possible for our customers to stay on the latest versions and leverage the new features and enhancements, without requiring a new purchase decision.
While the subscription pricing model suits many of our retail customers, Captivate is also hugely popular among large enterprises, government and educational institutions. Procurement policies in these segments prevent many of them from adopting a subscription plan. To help this group adopt and transition to a phase where our products will see frequent updates, we’ve enhanced our Upgrade Plan offering.
The Adobe Upgrade Plan ensures that you are always using the latest Adobe technology without straining your software budgets or administrative resources. This program offers your organization immediate access to all product upgrades for the length of your coverage period. For example, at $US 135 in the US, a one-year Upgrade-plan membership is priced at 15% of the full-product price and provides you access to all Adobe Captivate upgrades (including major releases) that occur during this period. A terrific value since non-members may pay up to 60% of the full-product price for an upgrade.
Going forward, while the bug fix updates/ patches will be offered to all customers automatically, feature updates and enhancements made between major releases will be offered exclusively to customers on either the Upgrade Plan or Subscription.
