Last month at DevLearn 2013 conference, I participated in the 9th Annual eLearning DemoFest event and showcased an Interactive eBook on how to use Adobe Presenter to create eLearning courses. There were 81 participants at DemoFest showing off their latest and greatest development efforts, offering the DevLearn conference attendees an opportunity to see a wide variety of solutions to common eLearning challenges, and information about the tools, technologies and processes they used to build them. And the good news is that we won Best of Show-Vendor and Best Open Entry awards for the interactive eBook on Adobe Presenter. Continue reading…

Educators have searched for quite some time for ways to shift from a didactic (teacher centered) classroom to a more experiential (student centered) classroom for decades.

You’ll get practical Advice for Educators who want to instantly create fantastic online resources from their lectures and slide decks. Join Dr. Allen Partridge for a discussion and demonstration of practical tips to capture your lectures, economize their length and distribution and make them available to your students.
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.
More details on the Adobe Upgrade Plan can be found here.
