Resolution: Graphics Driver Error for Adobe Presenter Video Creator

When recording a video using Adobe Presenter Video Creator, if you get an internal error or graphics driver error at the end of recording a video, opening a project, or publishing a project, it’s quite possible that the graphics driver for your computer/laptop is not up-to-date.

Follow these simple steps to check the graphics driver version and update it to the latest version:

  1. Verify if the driver is up-to-date – Device Manager > Display Adapters > right-click on the adapter > Properties > Driver tab. Check ‘Driver Date’. Ideally, the driver should not be older than a couple months.
  2. If you have an old driver, identify the make of the graphics card on your computer.
  3. Download and install the latest drivers from the corresponding vendor (for example, Intel, AMD, nVidia).

If you still get the error messages, please follow these steps to email us the diagnostic report.

Use Avatar Characters to Guide your Learners

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, author of the Assets eLearning Blog and President of eLearningArt.com, a stock photo site for the eLearning industry.

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…

Facilitating Flipped Classrooms for Primary, Secondary and College Classrooms

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.

I have spent the last couple of weeks traveling. I have driven through Continue reading…

Post 1: 7 techniques for using characters to liven up your eLearning

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, author of the Assets eLearning Blog and President of eLearningArt.com, a stock photo site for the eLearning industry.

How most people use characters

One thing I notice when hosting workshops is that the first time users try to insert character images, the end product looks about the same for all users: they use the character as an avatar and the full character (head to toe) is in the viewable area. Continue reading…

No More Excuses to Boring Presentation-like eLearning Courses!

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…

Enjoy the Adobe Presenter Appiness!

The Appiness is here and it’s here to stay! And we are proud to present the Adobe Presenter Mobile App to access your Adobe Presenter 8 courses on tablet devices. Exciting, isn’t it? :)

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…
