TechSmith Camtasia Studio 8: One Smart Player

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Arguably, the most common way to publish a Camtasia project is as a Flash SWF. This is an excellent solution because SWF files can be used by the vast majority of the world's personal computers, browsers and operating systems. Although your learners will not need Camtasia installed on their computer to use a SWF, they will need a modern web browser and the free Adobe Flash Player (www.adobe.com).

eLearning: Adobe Captivate and Microsoft PowerPoint

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Earlier this year I wrote an article teaching you how to take PowerPoint content and create  eLearning using either TechSmith Camtasia Studio or Adobe Presenter.   During a standard import process, PowerPoint pptx presentations are first converted to the ppt format and then converted to SWF.

Adobe Captivate & RoboHelp: Incorporate eLearning within a Help System

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

If you have created an eLearning lesson using eLearning tools such as Adobe Captivate, TechSmith's Camtasia Studio or Articulate's Storyline, you can insert the multimedia directly into RoboHelp Help Topics. If the learner is going to use a standard Windows PC or Macintosh computer, SWF output is fine.
