eLearning Authoring Workflow: Rapid vs. Traditional
(1)

,,,,

eLearning can be classified into Rapid and Traditional eLearning.
The two are distinguished by multiple facets including- the intended objective, turnaround time and shelf-life. This, to a great extent determines the time and effort an author will spend on creating this
content.

Rapid eLearning methodologies are best employed for projects that contain frequently updated, time-sensitive content. While the turnaround time for Rapid eLearning projects are a couple of weeks, traditional eLearning projects can take a few months to develop. Projects that require extensive simulations, or focus on soft skills or behavior modification are good candidates for traditional eLearning.

Below is a snapshot of the tools that would be used in the Rapid Authoring workflow. Adobe Captivate and Adobe Presenter would be the primary tools used to author and aggregate content.

Authors make use of pre-existing templates to create instructionaly sound content rapidly. When required, authors can leverage the asset creation tools like Photoshop and Flash Professional to enhance or customize stock content. The final content can be published using Captivate onto any SCORM or AICC compliant LMS or to Adobe Connect Pro.

A snapshot of the tools that would be used in the Traditional Authoring workflow are shown below. Flash Professional is the primary tool used for authoring and aggregating content in this scenario.

Authors can use Photoshop to edit graphics, Captivate to create assessments and capture applications, and Soundbooth to edit audio. The Flash Learning Interactions and Dreamweaver’s Coursebuilder extension can be used to expedite the eLearning content creation process when working with these tools.

How do you capture/record the Captivate application?
