It's the time of the year again to submit an entry to the Brandon Handon Hall Excellence in eLearning Awards. Adobe Captivate has won this award numerous times.
I'd like to encourage you to submit an entry yourself in one of the many categories. All judges have to sign a non-disclosure agreement, so your content won't be available publicly. You can also password protect your content and only the judges have access to it.
To show your work, you can easily use Adobe Captivate to create a short demo for the judges. Adobe Captivate supports screen recording after all :)
Here a few tips:
- keep your file size small check out the developer center article on size considerations
- add interactivity you don't want to bore judges
- add audio, animations, zoom, etc. to keep the content engaging
- if you have created PowerPoint slides, review them and cut half of the text! Add images instead. As a good presenter, you simply explain the key points using your narration. You don't need to write everything on the slide. Use a tool like Adobe Presenter to make your presentation available online (You can even add Adobe Captivate content inside your presentation)
It's actually a lot of fun to be a judge since you will be able to see amazing projects, find out about new technology (possibly Adobe Captivate 3), and learn how teams achieved great results. I have signed up last year for the category custom content and I saw some impressive projects.
Hope to see you at the awards ceremony in fall receiving an award for your Adobe Captivate project!
