The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Jennie Ruby    I often point out in my classes on  writing eLearning voiceover scripts  that a script is necessary so that when you record the audio you don't skip anything, don't stumble, and don't say "um." " However, using a voiceover script for eLearning is way more useful than just that. Let's say for example that your eLearning project will be developed in Adobe Captivate.

LMS Review: Adobe Captivate Prime

Talented Learning

Somehow I made it through more than 3 years without reviewing Adobe Captivate Prime LMS. Recently, several clients asked me about it by name, so I headed to the Adobe website for a first-hand look.

Adobe Captivate 5: Nervous About Editing Your RDL? Dupe It. But Watch the Name

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel Back in March I wrote an article about editing Captivate's RDL files to control much of the text and punctuation that will appear in a project's text captions before  recording any of your lessons.

JCA Solutions

SCORM had the limitation that any learning you wanted recorded had to be eLearning ( formal learning ), online, launched in a browser from a LMS, and could only record very specific things.
