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

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.

I created a short course on Hospital Hygiene with Continue reading…
