Adobe Captivate won Best of ELEARNING! 2007 award!

Adobe Captivate elearning awardWhat a start into the new year - I just learned today that Adobe Captivate is a winner in the Elearning! best of 2007 awards. The category is Best Simulation Tool. Adobe Captivate also won the Technology & Learning Awards of Excellence which was announced mid-December. Thanks to all of you who nominated Adobe Captivate or participated as judges. And thank you for helping us making Adobe Captivate the authoring tool it is today.

We are now actively working on new features for Adobe Captivate 4 but there is still plenty of time to submit feature requests. The more detailed you are in describing why you need the feature and how you would use it, the easier it is for engineering and product management to understand what you are looking for.

FYI: My blog will be silent for a few weeks - I'll be going on Sabbatical and will return beginning February.
