Adobe Presenter 7.0.7 is HERE with ActionScript 3.0 Support

mLearning Revolution

Today I’m happy to report that our much anticipated update of Adobe Presenter with full support for ActionScript 3.0 (AS3) AS3) is here, and this is a free update to anyone who owns Adobe Presenter 7, or any version of our Adobe eLearning Suite. For example, using the Record button, you can quickly record high-quality audio and then sync the audio to your PowerPoint animations with fine precision.

Why Use ActionScript 3.0 in Flash Based eLearning Development?

Upside Learning

With the help of its inbuilt programming language ActionScript developers can code interactions, communicate with servers, program animations etc. The latest version of ActionScript- ActionScript 3.0 [AS It has many new APIs and better performance which were not available in the previous versions of ActionScript [AS 1.0 & AS 2.0] has improved sound APIs which can now tell the sound level of the audio playing in Flash Player.

Is HTML5 Ready for eLearning Development?

Upside Learning

The new version (IE 9) which is expected to be released sometime in 2011will support HTML5. Audio/Video Support – HTML5 has added new video and audio tags that can play video/audio in a browser without a plugin but it doesn’t officially support any video or audio format. Also, Flash or Silverlight video/audio supports secure media streaming; there is no clear counterpart for this in HTML5.

What’s New in Adobe eLearning Suite2?

Upside Learning

One of the most significant improvements in this version is the availability of Captivate 5 for both Windows and Mac OS platforms previously it was only available for Windows users. Captivate 5 is tightly integrated with the other eLearning Suite tools like Flash CS5, Photoshop CS5, and Soundbooth CS5 for editing animations, images, and audio respectively. The eLearning Suite 2 looks a great improvement over its previous versions.

Game formats available: Flash (Actionscript 2 and 3) – You download the.fla source file for the game and open/edit them in Adobe Flash software. Flash (XML) – If you don’t have Adobe Flash software you could use the XML versions of the Flash games. You don’t need Flash to edit this version of the game. You select a template, insert your text/images/audio, and download the finished file. Flash (Actionscript 2 and 3).

Converting ELearning To Tablet Learning: Cost-effective Solutions

Upside Learning

Courses Developed in ActionScript 3: If you have projects developed in ActionScript 3, you can use Flash Professional CS5 and higher to publish them as native apps for Android and iOS platforms. Captivate Version 6 offers the option to publish output in HTML, thus providing good support for Tablet devices. So if you have courses already developed in older versions of Captivate, the only things you need to do is import and publish them for HTML via Captivate 6.

Flash Export in Captivate 5

Adobe Captivate

In previous versions of Captivate, for this feature to work, Flash needs to be installed on the same machine from where you want to export. This will show a Export dialog in Captivate unlike the earlier versions which show an Import dialog inside Flash. Along with the FLA file, any dependent SWF files or ActionScript files will be placed in the same folder as the FLA file. Export to Flash is an old feature modeled in a new way.

Captivate Version 6. Apart from supporting many common SWF features such as vector graphics, embedded fonts, images and timeline animation, it also converts basic ActionScript 2.0 and ActionScript 3.0 Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5. You can upload converted images, audio, and video as well as interactive quizzes and other activities through easy form-based templates.

Lesson I: Making your own Custom Articulate Player | LearnNuggets

This player will have the ability to turn on and off audio, although in this example I did not record any. The ActionScript for the player is written in version 2.0 so any version of Flash back to MX 2004 (v.8) I just recently upgraded to Flash CS4, but I built this player initially in Flash 8 which is several versions back. So, if you are using any of these Flash versions you should be fine: MX 2004, Flash 8, CS3, CS4, and my guess even CS5.

5 Reasons Why You Should Convert Flash to HTML5

When Adobe Flash was introduced more than 20 years ago, it empowered the developers with a multimedia platform that could manipulate vectors and offer faster graphics with ActionScript. This latest version of HTML operates with more audio and video capabilities and has reached a state of complete interoperability. Steps to Convert SWF to HTML5 . Today, we live in a world where communication is increasingly becoming mobile.

E-learning Tools: A Developer’s Review of Adobe Captivate 7

SweetRush

Animations are treated similarly — while the support for basic animation does exist, developers will not be able to create complex animations (for example, syncing illustrated avatars to audio). Support for branching has existed within Captivate since its early versions, but the visual execution of this feature has always made me long for more. Captivate 7 is a rapid development tool, so it’s never going to compare to something like ActionScript® when it comes to custom programming.

Mobile Learning Moves the Evolution of Authoring Tools

Association eLearning

eLearning created with these tools became engaging again, and though these applications did not require the kind of command-line coding expertise that TenCORE did, Actionscript (for Flash ) and Lingo (for Director ) could not be described as “simple” to use. This simple tool also allowed them to automatically create SCORM and 508-compliant modules that could be delivered on CD-ROM, web or iPod (yes, iPod – the audio automatically extracted into a download into iTunes).

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

I also like to make occasional visits to Google Labs and Adobe Labs to "keep up" with the tech tools they are working on and to test drive any beta versions available. 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.

The Truth About Rapid E-Learning

Rapid eLearning

Here’s the deal, you can learn Flash and actionscript to build elearning content. The only difference is that with PowerPoint you get to create your Flash movie (with animation and audio) in an environment you already know. While actionscript programming does provide more control over the Flash content, rapid elearning generally gives you a lot more convenience.
