Using Lectora to Sync Audio

Integrated Learnings

Most multimedia developers are familiar with audio timing in frame based applications like Adobe Flash and other movie editing software.

3 Productivity Tips for Naming Files in Lectora

eLearning Brothers

One of the major differences between Lectora and some other authoring tools is the method used to import and reference images, videos, and other files. Rather than copying them directly into the Lectora AWT file, images are automatically copied into an “images” folder, the audio or video into the “media” folder and other files such as PDFs or DOCs to the “extern” folder.
