eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: Polly Want a Voice?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

When it comes to audio in eLearning, my experience strongly suggests that adding voiceover audio to your project enhances the learner experience. Does this mean that you need to hire professional voiceover talent? However, home-grown audio featuring you as the voiceover talent works great. I know, I know, you hate your voice. Yikes, I mean we hate the sound of our own voice, not yours.) Worse, what if your eLearning tool doesn’t include TTS at all?

eLearning: When Should You Record Your Voiceover Audio?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      Adding voiceover audio to eLearning enhances the learner experience. And before you spend thousands of dollars hiring voiceover talent to record your audio, you should know: your voice is fine (nobody likes their own voice so trust me on this, yours will do nicely). I've been creating eLearning for years (and years and years). I was trying to create quick video demos to share with fellow eLearning developers.

eLearning: What's the Best Microphone for Voiceover Audio?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

It doesn't matter if you use Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline or TechSmith Camtasia Studio as your eLearning tool of choice. each can produce awesome eLearning content that will be enhanced if you include voiceover audio. It's got a built-in sound card (built right into the cord) that does a great job of cancelling out internal computer noises.

eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: Audio, Text, or Both?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Over the years, I’ve taken a lot of eLearning courses; and at this point, I’ve seen it all. Some of the courses I’ve taken were clearly PowerPoint presentations and designed to be eLearning.   I’ve also seen eLearning courses developed with rapid development tools like Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline. And I’ve seen courses that included voiceover narration but little (or no) text on the screen… just some very dated clipart. Sound Shield.

eLearning: Two Awesome Microphones

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Jeff Harris   In March, Kevin shared his techniques for  improving sound quality by using sound absorbers. In this article, I cover two of my favorite microphones for voiceover recording: the Heil PR-40 and the Shure MV51.

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Jennie Ruby Recasting sounds like something a fly fisherman would do, but in writing and editing it means to restructure a sentence. However, the correct grammar here sounds unfamiliar or wrong to readers used to seeing who with demands , not demand.
