You’ve heard of Captivate and Storyline, of Articulate Studio and Adobe Presenter. You’ve heard of a few other tools too. But did you know there are literally hundreds of eLearning development tools? On top of that, many of them are free or cost very little. Think about this: One or more of those tools might serve your particular project needs better than the one you’re using now! Be careful, though; free may mean quite limited and result in you spending a lot more time developing a lesson with less instructional value.

In this session you will learn in an hour what would take you a long time to research on your own. You will explore the good, the bad, and the ugly in the tools arena. You will discover tools and ideas that until now have been missing from your toolbelt. Bring your questions, get your answers, and leave this session much more informed than when you arrived.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to choose the best authoring tool for your project
  • How to save money by using free and low-cost tools
  • How to determine the advantages and disadvantages of each tool
  • How to combine the strengths of tools for best results

Novice and intermediate designers, developers, and project managers.
