How much is an authoring tool worth?

Clive on Learning

Empower looks like it is much more powerful than Articulate Engage, which sells for four times as much, and almost certainly cost Trivantis much more to develop. Popular tools such as Captivate, Articulate and Trivantis' own Lectora still do. The recent release by Trivantis of Snap! Empower , a rapid Flash interaction builder, for the princely sum of $99, got me wondering if I have any idea any more of what an authoring tool is worth. So why the low price? Time was an authoring tool cost at very least $1K and often much more. In fact many toys never get used.

So here it goes, these are the things that have impressed me about Storyline, some are features but I also consider the intangibles, such as Articulate’s community, to be important factors too, which is why I put the Articulate Community at the top of the list. p=402.

Product Review: Lectora Snap! Empower

eLearning 24-7

Lectora compares this product to Articulate Engage and frankly I think that is a mistake. Empower blows away Engage on multiple levels and as such I’d put this product against some of the rapid content authoring tools that offer simulation options. Initially this review was going to cover both Snap! and Snap! Empower, but I ran into a major issue with Snap! What was it?

Digital learning content does not have to mean CBT

Clive on Learning

I am becoming increasingly aware of the the need to make clear a distinction between the broad concept of digital learning content, in all its many varieties, and the much narrower idea of interactive tutorials of the traditional CBT (computer-based training) variety. This is no more than a natural evolution from their traditional responsibility for the production of PowerPoint slides and handouts which support most classroom events. While some trainers will have the aptitudes and interests which will help them to excel in this area, in most cases this will remain a job for specialists.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

The power of pictures - part 3

Clive on Learning

Basically, they came up with the questions, I did the answers, we debated a bit, the whole lot was videoed, edited, converted to Flash video, assembled into an FAQ using Articulate Engage and then uploaded to the course website. In the first two parts of this posting I reflected first on the importance of visualisation to memory and then on the effect on both me as presenter and on my audience of the absence of any PowerPoint slides at a networking dinner I spoke at. I am assuming, of course, that the slides really were visual aids and not textual prompts for me.

My guess is that Articulate represents a larger market share than two years ago.
