In case you haven’t noticed, there are now a plethora of PowerPoint-based eLearning development tools – and that is both a good thing and a bad thing.  The good part is that we now have many more choices than ever for rapid eLearning development, but the bad part is figuring out which one is the right tool for your needs.  One tool costs around $1,500, one costs just $99 and others are available for around $500.  Which one should you choose? Come find out for yourself. The December ASTD-Boston session will be a hands-on workshop held at New Horizons in Waltham, where you will receive a brief lesson on the tools and then you will test drive them to decide which one you like best.   Mark Simon will be on-hand to lead this show & tell & play session, and Mark will also summarize his research article on PPT-based eLearning tools that was published in the September issue of eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions Magazine. Come to hear Mark’s conclusions and come to decide for yourself which tool is best.

Mark Simon is Principal Training Specialist at HiMark Solutions and an Adjunct Professor in the Instructional Design program at UMass-Boston. Mark’s most recent article, “Making Sense of PowerPoint Pandemonium” offered an in-depth review of PPT-based eLearning development tools and appeared in the September issue of eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions Magazine. His article, “eLearning No-How” was a 2009 cover story in ASTD’s T+D Magazine and it was rated the T+D #1 article of the year for 2009, and Mark has penned many other articles for T+D, Learning Solutions and CLO magazines.  Mark has presented multiple sessions at DevLearn and has been a frequent featured speaker at ASTD events. Mark has a Master’s Degree in Instructional Design from UMass Boston.
