Presenter: Patti Shank, Ph.D., CPT, author of Essential Articulate Studio ’09
“Rapid” e-Learning authoring tools can make it easy for trainers, instructors, and content experts to build e-Learning themselves. These tools can also make e-Learning development faster and cheaper.
In this session, Patti will discuss: the advent of rapid e-Learning authoring tools; why and how they have changed e-Learning authoring; what you can and cannot produce using rapid authoring tools; how to get started. Patti will provide examples from her Essential Articulate Studio ’09 book, but the information she provides applies to other popular e-Learning rapid development authoring tools such as Adobe Captivate and Raptivity. This discussion is specifically geared towards people getting started with e-Learning or with Articulate Studio.
