Qarbon Camtasia and Adobe Captivate

Qarbon Pros: Less File size. Qarbon seems very easy to use. Question from a reader, hoping you can provide your thoughts: I am in the process of selecting an elearning tool that is easy to use, quick to create the demos and does not bloat the file size much. I want to create some online videos that will be a total of about 6-7 hours and upload them on my site. These videos would have software demos, screencasts and PowerPoints embedded inside them. Also every screen would have audio (voiceover with my voice) accompanying it. I have been looking into various tools.

Best of the Best: Content Authoring Tools

eLearning 24-7

The version you want is the Pro version which comes with Corel Paint Shop Pro, Qarbon Viewlet builder. While traditionally best of the best are announced in December, I decided why wait. I mean it is not like something is going to change in just a few weeks for any such product. Before I get to the list, people always want to know how do I decide what constitutes the best of the best. Here are my criteria. Innovation – if the product doesn’t offer some innovative features, then they are stale. If they are stale – seriously do you deserve to the best? Final Note.

Rapid e-learning is swimming in too small a pond

Clive on Learning

The panel consisted of representatives from Adobe Captivate , Articulate and Qarbon , along with Jay Cross (yes, I know, I wondered whether he'd just turned up in the wrong room and, given that he's always got something interesting to say, they just allowed him to join in). I attended the panel discussion on 'the future of rapid e-learning tools' at the eLearning Guild's Annual Gathering in Boston today with a misunderstanding. I thought I knew what 'rapid e-learning' meant. Notice how similar these definitions are? They both refer to the authors of this rapid content as being SMEs.

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.

Page update Mar 2008. When the above graphic was taken, it shows the overall satisfaction reported by eLearningGuild members about various tools. I was reminded of the various Brandon Hall shoot-outs. Of course, they were more looking at PPT conversion tools.

eLearning Topics

But still, this gives a general indication and it's especially interesting when you compare it to 2007 : Corporate Blog (20) Personal Learning (23) eLearning Tools (323) Software Simulation (21) Qarbon (6) Second Life (135) PowerPoint (148) Google Scholar (9) Authorware (16) Ah the good old days of 2007. I've done a few posts in the past that take a look at the topics that are Hot Topics in Training. In each case, these are crude in that they look only at what terms people are using in a given content set. I have doubts about the validity of these data. Just a thought.

Training Standards

Tony Karrer

What about Adobe products vs. Articulate vs. Qarbon ? Bill Sawyer posted in response to my Conversation Topics post. You can find posts aggregated via eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations. I've not met Bill before, and this was a great way to start. He is definitely challenged and thinking a lot about training standards. Bill has quite a few questions in his post: eLearning is suffering from the Beta/VHS or Blu-ray/HD-DVD challenge. In fact, it is probably even more systemic. For example, it is elearning? eLearning? e-Learning? or E-Learning? I'm not really going to address this much.

Confused of Brighton

Clive on Learning

Tools for creating interactive tutorials (the bulk) as opposed to those that specialise in producing assessments ( QuestionMark ), 3D games (Caspian's Thinking Worlds ), software simulations (Captivate, Qarbon ViewletBuilder , Camtasia ) and scenarios ( RapideL Discover , Captivate). Two situations recently have got me thinking about e-learning authoring tools. Firstly, I've been doing some more work on the script for The 30-minute masters which, if you remember, aims to teach the essentials of instructional design to subject matter experts in no more than 30 minutes. Have you ?
