Recap: 2012 Adobe Learning Summit

Dan Longhouse and Ben Palchick just returned from the 2012 Adobe Learning Summit. Co-presenting with Bryan Jones of eLearning Art, Dan delivered some of the latest Captivate 6 features in Creating Stunning eLearning Content in Minutes Using Learning Interactions and Actors.

Bryan started with an overview of character best practices. Dan followed with a how-to on creating interactions, and quickly transitioning from storyboard to interactive elements.

We already discussed the Top-Five reasons to attend, but [ah-em] if you still didn’t go, here are the key take-a-ways:

  1. Character Use: There are many ways to improve your eLearning project with characters. Some best practices include Avatars, Presenters, Conversations, Scenarios, and Story Developments.
  2. Interaction Student Benefits: e-Learning interactions are one of the most powerful ways to engage your audience. Interactions can deliver the same information without all the boring text, create a better user experience, and, best of all, increase knowledge transfer.
  3. Interaction Developer Benefits: Interactions are the best way to reduce development and learning time. Adobe Captivate’s interactions are free, easy to make, customizable, and publish to HTML5 or Adobe Flash *.SWF.

The presentation concluded with a lively discussion and step-by-step Captivate demo. Make sure you checkout all the new DIY eLearning Interactions, and Adobe Captivate Interactions!
