Well done Infosemantics!
Have you been lucky enough to see the power of Presenter 8? I am currently at the LearnX conference in Melbourne and have been lucky enough to watch Dr Allen Partridge showcase the new features now available and have been blown away by the ease of use of the video capture in Presenter. This would be a great feature to give your SME's (subject matter experts) and get them to create the demonstration videos for your learning.
The biggest theme of LearnX this year has been that we need to adopt and embrace social learning, having said that I have also realised that there is much confusion and misunderstanding in the term social learning, so would like to ask you what this term means to you? Looking forward to reading your definitions.
If you are in Melbourne pop in today and say hello to Dr Allen Partridge and mysef on the Adobe stand.
Take care, and talk soon
Captivate 6 has arrived!!!!!
I am so excited to now share with you captivate 6 with all its new really cool features. The best way for you to get to know this wonderful tool is to visit the captivate blog http://blogs.adobe.com/captivate/adobe-captivate-tutorials and see the really cool tutorials on the new features.
Having played with 6 I can tell you I will be pushing all my clients to upgrade as soon as possible as I personally do not want to be creating in older versions of csaptivate as this new version will not only save me so much time using the themes, but as I have said before many times, if you have to create compliance courses this version now allows for pretesting, making our life so much easier to teach people what they don't know, instead of boring them with what they do. Although I do not think anything we create in 6 could be boring with all the new actors and interactions now available.
Also you must check out the new HD video recording now available with the ability to edit with transitions right in captivate.
I am so excited and I could keep going on and on, but I ask that you at least download the trial version and have a play because as soon as you did, you will like me not want to use any other tool.
Let me know your thoughts of this version and let me know what you do or even don't like of the new version.
I am thinking of putting together a launch presentation in Sydney and will keep you posted on this.
Hold onto your hats everyone, Adobe has now released 3 sneek peak videos on Captivate 6. I recommend you all start applying the pressure to the powers that be to ensure you are ready jto upgrade as soon as it is released as the developers have certainly taken the software to another level.
The first video by Dr Pooja Jaisingh showing you how you can now publish direct to HTML5 giving seemless transtition from desktop to mnobile learning.
The second video by Dr Allen Partridge introducing you to Themes. This is one feature I have been waiting for, no more having redesign all the quiz slides.
The third video by Pooja introduces us to the wonderful new HD video recording & editing feature which will really help make our modules shine!!
Dr Allen Partridge & Dr Pooja Jaisingh will be here in Australia in August for Learnx in Melbourne, for more details on this great event go to the website and register now, an event not to be missed. http://www.learnx.net/2012/
Looking forward to the launch of 6, if I was to hold a launch event in Sydney how many of you would like to come and see first hand the great new features Captivate 6 will have? Comment and let me know if you would be interested.
