Make older programs run in Windows Vista or Windows 7

Take an e-Learning Break

After struggling for a couple of days trying to get an old copy of Macromedia Dreamweaver Extension Manager to install an old version of CourseBuilder on a Windows 7 machine, I came across this article in the Microsoft help system. Most programs written for Windows Vista also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows doesn't run correctly, you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, either manually or by using the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.”

Rapid Content Authoring Tools: Market, Mayhem and Reality

eLearning 24-7

Microsoft Word converted to Flash? Macromedia Authorware and similar products. Macromedia Director. The Macromedia set typically would toss in Director, which created an equally impressive array of course capabilities, but a deep learning curve. Eventually, Macromedia Dreamweaver came into the picture.  As the evolution of e-learning continues, the rapid content authoring tools (RCAT) market follows suit. This is a growing market with new vendors showing up, but at the same time, others disappearing. Is it PowerPoint converted to Flash? That was then. Lectora.

Macrodobe or AdobeMedia?

The Learning Circuits

With the acquistion of MacroMedia it looks like Adobe will be leaping into the collaboration space even more quickly. The statement from the Adobe press release this morning says "The combination of Adobe and Macromedia strengthens our mission of helping people and organizations communicate better.

Skating to wear the puck is

Ellen Wagner

I have been thinking a lot about Kendall  Whitehouse's March 18th interview with Stephen  Elop, president of  Microsoft , in the recent issue of Knowledge@Wharton. Stephen Elop was our EVP of the worldwide field organization at Macromedia when I started working in solutions marketing, and my boss, Penny WIlson, was a direct report of Stephen's, so I have my "close to greatness" connections here as well. This was regarding the Macromedia decisions to focus on Flash research. Instead, invest in where you want to be when the markets turn around. Two parallel thoughts.

As the mobile web goes, so grow the opportunities for new and improved mobile learning applications.  As we're hearing from Apple about iPhones, from Steve Ballmer and Microsoft about the improvements in Windows Mobile OS, as RIM continues to rock with Blackberries for all, more Android and the  G1 phones are on the way for 2009, and as Pre may give Palm another shot, there seem to be a number of places where US-based app developers can begin to anticipate what mobile learners want. was announced and profiled.
