Hello people, Please let me know if this issue has been discussed here previously, i can not find it if it has.  Is there an alternative method for creating tables in Captivate 9 besides the Learning Interactions widget (which i find ungainly in the extreme) or importing a table from PowerPoint?  Any help is greatly appreciated. Regards, Patrick Cross

Hi Everybody As a follow on to the Adobe Train the Trainer Course I did at the beginning of the year, using the professional development session plan I have just been given the go-ahead to create a learning course in one area of my work using   Captivate 8 to be delivered through our LMS BlackBoard. I'm really excited about it. I have sold Captivate to the powers that be and now I need to deliver. :-) I am only in the planning stage and thinking about design etc. I hope to Blog or Vlog about...

Due to the timings of curriculum and assessment in the classroom I am finding that students can get through several years of IT and still not be exposed to some software that could be good for them to learn to use. And if they are, not to the level of detail that I would like. I am also seeing students not studying IT wishing to learn to use software, particularly PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver. They seem to know that it is worth their while having some experience with these tools. So I a... Read More

I have a pretty extensive website I built in dreamweaver. That said, I have built it primarily on tables never having implemented CSS to any meaningful degree. I've been look at Muse since moving to the cloud. I pondering how to best integrate the potential of Muse with the things I have already created. Not sure I am even in the right forum for this question presently.

I'm almost sure that I'm not in the right place to ask but...could anyone tell me how you can do a little bit of housekeeping within the resources we've published as a result of final lesson plans for online courses ? I don't know if there is something wrong but I can't edit or delete my published resources even though I click on the edit icon ! Thanks for your help !

From my perspective, this is a suggestion but could be a question for the Community as well if something already exists: There are a lot of great tutorials, how-to's, software demos, etc all over the Adobe websites (Adobe TV, Adobe.com, here on the Ed Ex, etc.) on eLearning...but would it be possible to have a site within the Ed Exchange dedicated to the topic? I know there is the Discussion board (see it here via this link), but it would be great to have a collection of everything available. As big... Read More

I need some help. I have Captivate 7. I created a project, then exported according to the instructions for adding to a Wordpress site, basically export a zipped folder. The project was added to the Wordpress site, no problem, plays well on the desktop but will not play on the iPad, looking for the Flash plug in. I thought publishing the zipped folder and included the HTML5 file would allow it to play on the iPad. If any one can help please do?  Thanks

Hi everyone,  Does anyone think it is possible to make a complete online course include some flipped classroom methods? The only way I could see it happening is having some of the discussion forums be student lead, where the students would be the facilitator (coming up with the questions for their peers to answer).

Yesterday, while making connections, I received a badge for making some connections. NICE! Yesterday, I added some resources, commented on some people's posts, and gave some answers. However, no points were awarded. How are points determined? Specifically: Are they awarded weekly, daily, or at the time of?Is there some type of cap system in place? I see some people add web links - like 20 in a day. At 30 points per resource, does that net them 600 points per day?If a person says something questionable and... Read More

Here is a topic that has become a hot point of debate in our team….Gamification. Gamification has been around since the beginning of computers, except it was just called games. Somewhere along the line it changed to gamification. Every eLearning conference I attend has some topic relating to gamification. My manager is sold on this concept of gamification BUT is it a good tool to use in the eLearning arena? Off the bat I am totally “for” playing games, while learning BUT&hel... Read More

Traditional teaching vs Techno geek I was in a meeting today and was confronted with a question…. Before I pose the question, let me give you some background to what the department is up to. The department wants to move away from traditional teaching and more into eLearning. They had a lot of questions (which I have heard before) … BUT this one garbed me … and it was quite an interesting one … Who would I select, to be in an eLearning team …. a... Read More

I tried Captivate 8 for the first time, and I love it. I think it will be excellent in creating interactive designs for student to interact and engage with.

I'm on the Adobe Generation Pro Web Design course and posted a similar question on the course forum but I thought I could open this up to all you AEErs  If you use Muse, have you found any unusual ways to use the Widgets to enrich a web based educational experience?  If you have, post them in this thread. That way we could all be inspired. I'll start- I have used the tooltip widget on a distance-time graph and a speed-time graph. When the student hovers the mouse over each part of the line, the...

I am interested in evaluating the use of online video training courses in teaching the Adobe Design Suite to Freshman on the college level.  My experience so far has been that students who have not had one on one instruction with a trainer really don't learn how to use the software with the depth that is needed in the professional environments.  We recently added Lynda. com to our resources on campus, and I'm interested in anyone's evaluation of using that resource specifically to train students f...

Presenter Workshop is out of date

Looking through the Adobe Presenter workshop discovered that it is out of date re: Mac and Adobe Video Presenter Express. The video on the second part of the workshop says that you can download for free and upload any number of videos for free. This is not the case. AVPE now has a substantial cost and is not free for any videos. Maybe the workshop needs to be altered to reflect this plus the organisers of the next T4T which uses Presenter, need to take this into account.
