It is a well-known fact that Adobe Flash is a highly flexible and customized tool. Animations, interactions and assessments that are not feasible in rapid authoring tools can be created in Flash. Flash supports both video and audio files. It gives a customized look and feel to the user interface. It can be used in all kinds of trainings, including product and process trainings, soft-skill trainings and even software simulations. It also has a large developer community, providing great support for developers. There are many pre-built Flash files that can be downloaded for free or low cost.
Do you find it tedious to create similar actions again and again, either within your project or across many projects? If your answer is “YES”, then you can overcome this difficulty with Adobe Captivate 7. This tool now provides several possibilities to reuse/share of advanced actions, not only across many projects, but also within a project.
We generally come across some people who hold some vague or wrong notions about m-learning. Little do they realize what the realities of m-learning are. Let’s see some of the myths and realities of m-learning.
Is it taking lot of effort and time to develop translated versions of eLearning courses, using Adobe Captivate? Do you create each language version by replacing the source language text manually? Facing lot of difficulty in sending the translated text to translators? Do you experience translated text mismatch, because you do not know the language?
When you want to add ample of interactivities and engaging power-point presentations and convert them into online eLearning courses, Articulate Studio is one such tool which will assist you in accomplishing the above requirements.
More and more organizations are now turning to eLearning to fulfill their growing training requirements. As a result, there is a need to develop eLearning courses not only efficiently but also quickly. Various authoring tools such as Lectora, Articulate, Captivate, Flash etc., are used to develop eLearning courses depending on the training requirements of an organization and the unique features that each tool offers.
User Acceptance Testing (UAT) known as beta testing, application testing/ end user testing – is a phase of eLearning development, in which the course is tested in the “real world”. UAT is often the last phase of an eLearning project before the decision to “go live” is taken. The purpose is to give the stakeholder an opportunity to test the course and gain the confidence that the course being delivered to them meets their requirement.
Authoring tools have certainly de-mystified the whole eLearning development process. Instructional designers and L & D professionals can attempt to develop eLearning courses without depending on skilled programmers. However, is it as simple as it sounds?
This post is a continuation of my research on rapid e-learning authoring tools. In my earlier post, I have tried to explain which authoring tool needs to be selected, based on your need.
After working with Articulate Storyline and Lectora Inspire, it was good to see both the tools have similar features and capabilities, but there are certain differences.
When you need to train your employees who are mostly travelling or when your training cannot be suspended because employees spend extended times on field, mLearning could be a viable option. You need not start afresh with mLearning but can convert your existing eLearning content into mLearning.
