LearnDash

Our relationship goes back a long way too as I can recall the days of using Captivate when it was owned by Macromedia. Articulate wasn’t the juggernaut that it is today, and aside from learning how to program Flash, Macromedia Captivate was your next best option. I sincerely hope that Adobe’s efforts on this latest release will put them back on track as a major industry player.

Supports the creation multi-player games and interactions that you can share on social media sites. Here at DevLearn 2011 in Las Vegas I've got authoring tools on my mind.
