Last week was an exciting week with many announcements coming from our Adobe Labs. Specifically, Flash Catalyst and Adobe BrowserLab, and even though I don’t work directly on these products, I’m always asking myself how technologies like these can apply to eLearning and Technical Communication. Today for example, all applications in both eLearning suite and Tech Comm Suite, have real-time screen sharing via ConnectNow from Acrobat.com and  in the Technical Communication Suite 2, FrameMaker 9 and Acrobat 9 Pro Extended take advantage of Acrobat.com services for conducting PDF reviews, which can then be imported back into FrameMaker.

Adobe Flash Catalyst has some obvious synergies in eLearning, and Adobe BrowserLab will most likely be integrated into Adobe RoboHelp for previewing both WebHelp and FlashHelp in multiple browsers and OSes.
