Adobe eLearning Suite 6 is starting to generate quite a lot of buzz. I for one am eager to see Adobe’s reaction to the highly supported Articulate Storyline. Let’s face it, Articulate has raised the bar a bit, so Adobe really needs to make a splash with this one.
For the uninitiated, Adobe eLearning suite is actually a package of different programs all geared towards enhancing eLearning creation. In the past edition, this package has included:
- Flash Professional
- Acrobat X Pro
- Adobe Presenter
Some would argue that this package is a bit overkill. Personally, I believe most eLearning pros get the most use out of Captivate, Photoshop, and Flash Professional. In either case, this is a very comprehensive package for anyone who is seriously into eLearning development.
But as I mentioned, Articulate has been really making enhancements to their products, especially when coming out with Storyline – a tool which further enables anyone from a novice to an expert to create professional looking eLearning courses, quizzes, and demonstrations. Adobe has to respond, and their flagship eLearning product, the often clunky Captivate, is in desperate need of a makeover. In fact, this is the area where I have the most interest, but more on that in another post.
I came across a sneak peak video for Adobe eLearning Suite that I found quite fascinating: Presenter Video Creator. I don’t think I can do the program justice by a description, so I have included a video preview below as created by the team over at the Adobe blog.
Quite frankly, I haven’t seen Articulate come up with anything quite this awesome. Articulate pushes Screenr, which has proven to be a fan favorite. But the new features and seamless functionality of the Adobe Presenter Video Creator sets the bar at much higher level.
What is great with this program is that anyone using Articulate can use this program to greatly enhance their own eLearning. In my opinion, marrying these two programs adds a human element to the often cold and dry rapid eLearning modules developed today.
Take a look at the video below to catch a glimpse at some of the cool Adobe Presenter Video Creator features:
