Interactivity is at the heart of today’s best e-learning content; the days of passively reading plain text on a page are fading away. Educators need to keep learners stimulated through deeper engagement, and requiring users to interact with material enriches the experience and reinforces the lessons at hand. Interactive training material can be created without much technical know-how thanks to authoring tools – software that enables the building and packaging of e-learning content. When it comes to selecting an authoring tool, consider what software is best suited to building a particular course, and how its features can be harnessed to get the job done and meet learning objectives. Ask yourself: Is it easy to use?
As an e-Learning consultant I was always a fan of open source software.
Damien Bruyndonckx – Adobe Certified Instructor. - 10 Tips and tricks to jump start your Captivate 6 experienceIn the last couple of months I had this great chance to be in charge of a brand new eLearning project for the school I work at.

But for the Captivate developer that I am, the most interesting part of this adventure was to see my colleague Serge makes its debuts with Captivate. To prepare for this blog post, I’ve been talking with Serge, asking him about his newbie experience with Captivate.

Storyline is the new tool from Articulate, the company that brought you (and us) Articulate Studio ’09 – which bundles Presenter ’09, Quizmaker ’09, and Engage ’09.

The team over at Adobe has recently released the latest version of Adobe Captivate. With the recent release of Articulate Storyline, does Captivate come with enough new features to keep pace with the latest tool from the team over at Articulate? Read on to find out.
A New Option for Rapid ELearning Development The team over at Articulate, the makers of Presenter, Quizmaker and Engage have recently released their newest offering, Articulate Storyline. I’ve been a big fan of the Articulate Suite of products (My favorite tools are Adobe Captivate combined with Articulate Presenter). After using it for a few weeks, I will have to say that Articulate has another winner to add to their stable of ELearning software.
A few months ago, Articulate released Storyline, and in my opinion, it is the first Rapid ELearning development tool that provides a worthy alternative to Captivate. Both tools allow you to capture video, create demo/simulations, create quizzes/assessments and create scenario based content. The question that I have heard a lot lately is, “Which tool do I choose, Captivate or Storyline?!” My answer is, “It depends”. My goal in this post is not to tell you which tool I think you should use, but rather provide you with points you can take into consideration that might help you decide for yourself which tool is the best choice for your particular needs. If you have looked at the content of my site, it probably comes as no shock to you that my two tools of choice for ELearning development are Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline.

Nothing is worse than having your client find an obvious error in a program that’s already been released. The troubleshooting, re-testing and scrambling to fix the problem can turn into a heart-pounding race against the clock. Not that this ever happened to me, of course, but a friend told me this can happen. Our best defense against these high-risk scenarios is to conduct thorough and systematic Quality Control (QC) reviews and testing before any deliverable is released.
