Adobe eLearning Suite: for the master of all trades

Clive on Learning

The imminent release of the Adobe eLearning Suit e has got me thinking about the authoring tools market as it stands in 2009. I can only imagine that the inclusion of Premiere would lift the price of the bundle out of reach, and certainly over $2000. Who needs authoring tools and which tools do they need? Quite a bundle and an exciting prospect for toy lovers. But I can't help but wonder who all this is aimed at. And by the way, why is Premiere not in here? But I can't even implement my copy of Creative Suite CS4 on my laptop as well as my desktop, let alone break the suite up.

E-Learning – My Background

eLearning 24-7

In 2000, I beta tested an html course on a Palm PDA, who knew that in 2008 and more so in 2009 mobile learning would start to evolve. In 1998, I was one of the few who were involved at the beginning stage of e-learning and have been involved ever since. I started building HTML courses and a LMS database (proprietary) and then went on to create a five level online university, other online LMSs (at multiple companies), online interactive content that was engaging (not static) asychronous and SCORM 1.2 compliant.

2000 Hours to Learn. The typical work year represents about 2000 hours. In that sense, we can say, that a person has 2000 available learning hours. So the question when building a training program is how to make the most of the 2000 learning hours. Two hours out of 2000 doesn’t seem like it would have a lot of impact.

Create Autonomy in Gamification and Other Learning Environments

Audio for Podcasting: Hard Disk Recording

The E-Learning Curve

However, storage limitations and exorbitant costs meant that a 10MB drive could cost over $2000, and could hold only about a minute of audio.
