Here’s how Adobe describes Captivate Prime: Adobe Captivate Prime uses a single universal player that, like a fluid, dynamically provides eLearning content in all major media types, and for desktop and devices all through a common player. I also like the fact that the player is fully responsive, which means that learning experiences will be fluid across multiple devices.

Our relationship goes back a long way too as I can recall the days of using Captivate when it was owned by Macromedia. Articulate wasn’t the juggernaut that it is today, and aside from learning how to program Flash, Macromedia Captivate was your next best option. If you haven’t heard yet, Adobe made some news in the elearning industry yesterday. Time will tell.

the learner needs to have the Flash Player installed) and thus making it an interesting challenge for our Industry to make the transition to mobile learning (mLearning), especially because of the market share that Apple commands with the iPad and the iPhone.

Supports the creation multi-player games and interactions that you can share on social media sites. Here at DevLearn 2011 in Las Vegas I've got authoring tools on my mind.

A leap is needed. If you look at what's happening with Web 2.0, etc., disagree?
