Mark Simon, Principal Training Specialist at HiMark Solutions, presented “ Battle of the PowerPoint-based eLearning Tools” at the December 13 ASTD monthly meeting. An audience of more than 35 people packed the training room at New Horizons, the meeting host and sponsor. After reviewing some PowerPoint tips and trick, Simon summarized the features and functions of four tools used to convert PowerPoint presentations into eLearning:
• Articulate ‘09 Suite
• Lectora Snap 1.2
• Adobe Presenter 7
• iSpring Suite 6.0
Each tool enables developers to add a table of contents and interactive quizzes, publish online files, and include narration. Differences exist in the characteristics of each, however, such as cost, usability and development functions. Simon presented details on the tools and then gave participants the opportunity to work with them in hands-on practice sessions. Review Simon’s presentation.
Brain Shea, a business technology professional, commented on the meeting in his blog, “The eLearning event illustrated the value of being exposed to different perspectives and industries. I learned about techniques/tools that I had never heard of before.” Read Shea’s blog
