Just wondering what everyone finds best & easiest to use for e-learning course development this year? Are there any new tools you find useful, particularly any good freeware you recently noticed? I'm starting new courses soon and wanted to check out the recent developments out, currently have captivate 6.
Nothing new but have used UDUTU in the past and it's a pretty good course development tool - free and cloud-based. Jing for 5 min videos. For a small fee (in software terms) recommend Camtasia Studio.
VideoScribe sounds useful, thanks Lee!
I'm currently using Ispring Converter http://www.ispringsolutions.com/?uid=isconv;220.127.116.1136; to create interactive PowerPoints that are converted to HTML5 but keep their interaction.
With more iPads being used, we've found that lots of e-learning creating software outputs in flash which is no good for iPads. By converting to HTML5 these resources can be viewed on Smartphones, iPads, Tablets and PC's. Taking the resources to the masses. (Note iSpring offer an Educational discount)
Another Flash to HTML5 converter is Swiffy (https://www.google.com/doubleclick/studio/swiffy/)
