Joe Ganci, eLearning expert lo these many years, and an expert in both Captivate and Presenter, will guide you through the steps that will get you up and running quickly. He will also give you a few choice tips you may find difficult to find elsewhere. Come with your questions too. Joe will do his best to answer them.
I’m thrilled to share that Adobe has announced an amazing competition for students and teachers ages 13 and up. It’s an awesome chance to strut your creative stuff and compete for fantastic big money prizes. Top prize is $2000 with a $1000 second prize and a $500 third prize.
Now money can be good. It can even be awesome. But what’s really awesome about this contest is that participants will get a chance to show off their creativity, and express their ideas about a social issue that matters to them. In this contest, entrants will create a short video (using the new Adobe Presenter Video Creator) that explains how they would Change the World for the better. It’s a great opportunity to let others hear your ideas and to demonstrate your creative abilities. Wouldn’t you love a chance to share your ideas and compete for big cash prizes? How about the people you know? You should share this article with your kids, your friends, your family and colleagues. (Hint, hint)
Check out this video to learn more about the competition.

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.
Since last few days, Adobe Presenter 8 users are getting a McAfee ‘Generic Downloader Trojan’ virus alert for one of the Presenter installer files.
We reached out to McAfee regarding this issue and they have agreed that this is a false positive. McAfee will be excluding this virus alert for Presenter 8 installer file in their next update which is expected in a day or two.
Meanwhile, if you would like to use Adobe Presenter 8 uninterruptedly, please disable the McAfee virus scan before using Adobe Presenter 8.
If you have any further questions regarding this issue. Please leave a comment here and we’ll get back to you.
Update: This issue has been resolved by McAfee. If you were affected by this issue in the last few days, ensure that you have the latest version of McAfee and then uninstall and reinstall Adobe Presenter.
