Let’s hope this is not just stuff I already know about.
Adobe eLearning Suite Announced
- Mobile learning templates. Pick a phone in Device Central, send to Captivate, will designate screen size for real estate based on the device selected.
- Manual and automatic panning in Captivate 4 (finally).
- Send preview to Device Central to see what it looks like on mobile device.
- Batch testing on multiple phones
- Mac version is coming, but not with v4.
- Inline text editing in captions (rather than having to double-click to open editor)
- Drawing tools integrated: drawing toolbar for circles, lines, etc.
- Now can use Photoshop files with layers and accessible in timeline.
- Variables. Use text entry to capture info to use throughout. Good for personalization, but nothing spectacular.
- Flash widgets, and Captivate Exchange (like the old DW Extensions)
- Slide-level executions (play bar, logo, etc.)
- Ships with widgets and FLA source file to customize or make your own.
- Table of contents…ability to link several movies using Aggregator.
- Support Flash PLayer 7-10 and Flash Lite
- Previously mentioned review via AIR.
- Dynamically link with original PowerPoint presentation when converting.
So, not so much a sneak peek of Adobe products, but just a sneak peek of Captivate 4. Be a little more honest with your session titles/descriptions, Adobe.
- eLearning Suite includes different versions of CS products? Dreamweaver for eLearning? Interesting.
- Quizzing module added to Flash
- No date (no surprise) – 2009
