 Comparing the Features of Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline (And some other tools!)  

Though there are many authoring tools available for creating eLearning lessons, two most popular are Adobe Captivate and Articulate Storyline. The number one question the presenter is asked by those new to the field is, "Which authoring tool is the best?" The answer, of course, is it depends on several factors. The real question is, "Which authoring tool should we use to create the best eLearning for our specific learner audience and the lesson content and context?"

During this lively session, Joe will discuss the features of both Captivate and Storyline as well as touch upon several other tools you may not have considered. The session will start with some questions that will help you determine the best instructional design approach to take, which will then help you also decide which authoring tool will best serve your needs. You may decide you need more than one!

Come with questions and share your thoughts. Joe will be impartial in his presentation, favoring no tool over another, because the tool you need may not be the same as that of another attendee. He asks that you also keep an open mind and try to avoid authoring tool politics - we have enough politics during this election year!

Learning objectives:

  • Answer the questions to determine which instructional design and authoring tool path to take
  • Analyze a matrix of features to help you choose the right tools
  • Differentiate between the marketing claims of tool vendors
  • Create the best eLearning possible
