Articulate, Captivate and Lectora – Do they deserve your praise?
SEPTEMBER 11, 2012
Articulate Studio. I’ve always found this product to be the top of the line for PowerPoint to Flash course builds. The two biggest negatives IMO, is that it just isn’t robust enough for e-learning developers and its whole focus on PPT into converting to a course doesn’t help. Two weeks ago I got the wonderful opportunity to speak in OZ, specifically Melbourne, Australia. What I found was an extensive group of people hungry for anything e-learning. They were hungry to know more information. Mind you the same vibe exists in New Zealand. It was awesome. Articulate.

Unlike Adobe Flash, output in Articulate interactions have Flash content, and launch in Flash player, but this Flash content is self contained, and ‘invisible’ to the user.
