Did you know?

>Brent Schlenker has links to some great movies on his blog - "Did you know?" and "When I grow up"
Lots of great stats and it gets you thinking to encourage kids to learn and use technology. My nieces are going to school in Germany and I am still surprised how little computers are part of the daily school life ...

If you are a teacher, think of projects where you could encourage students to use Adobe Captivate - it's visual, it's easy to learn, and they can use the SWFs for their own portfolio. Here is a cool case study where Thane Williams, a Spanish teacher at North Charleston High School, had the students create storyboards in Adobe Captivate: they had a topic, needed to create a slide show and record their dialog in Spanish. Watch the video (It's #3).

PS: We do offer educational pricing at only $199 for a full license of Adobe Captivate.


I (foolishly) installed the trial during late May, just before the busiest time of the year. I had little time to explore the program. I was prepared to purchase a copy of Captivate 2 but have now see the v3, that will be more Vista friendly, is in development. I am running a Vista equipped laptop at home during the summer. Are there any hints on a timeline for the new version? Failing that, is it possible to extend the trial period to provide some real evaluation time now that I have it? :) I'm game to try developing some tutorials on using library databases e.g Proquest.

PS: If you call customer service, you can have the trial extended once for another 30 days. Once the new version starts shipping, a trial version of Adobe Captivate 3 will be available on our site.
