Why I Love Shared Actions since over 4 years!

Adobe Captivate

In most projects I open an external library (have a look at Internal and External Libraries ) which has frequently used shared actions. Example movie (CP2017). That action certainly has its place in a common external Library. This is an older version of the Example movie for which I posted a link above. At that moment you will appreciate the fact that the shared action appears in the Library and has a Usage button – like any other asset. Intro.

Flash to HTML5 – Swiffy From Google

Upside Learning

This has come just in time for mLearning implementers; there is a new tool out in Google Labs called Swiffy that let’s one convert flash animation (swf files) to a device independent HTML5. Simply put, this will allow existing libraries of flash animation content to be ported to devices that run iOS – iPhones, iPads, and iPods. We’ve been experiementing with Swiffy for a few hours now and it seems to do quite a decent job of converting SWF files.

When possible, load audio/video into the library and create instances of it in your learning to save duplications and file size. Consider larger font sizes greater than 24 pts for readability on Android's smaller screen size. Take advantage of libraries like Widget Factory and cpGears to make coding easier. Use code snippets to add drag and drop, play movies, add timers, move objects, and more.

Snagit for Google Chrome Keeps on GIF’ing

TechSmith Camtasia

Look to the top left of the TechSmith Snagit Library window just below the logo: Click the + symbol. Technically, when Snagit for Chrome records a screen it reduces the height of the final video recording to 720px if the screen or window is larger than that size. This is to have the best looking output with the smallest possible file sizes and easiest processing for the variety of computers, Chromebooks, Windows and Macs, that can use Snagit for Chrome.

Notes from DevLearn and the Adobe Learning Summit

Steve Howard

Hopefully you, my brave reader, can get similar value from my scribblings, but I make no apology for the size or the content of this blog post. Light – only a small (less than 100k) addition to the overall Captivate movie size. • AVI etc also easy, but usually much bigger file size. • all file properties save as xml. INTRODUCTION. Following is a largely unedited version of conference notes that I have just distributed internally where I work.
