Authoring Tool Updates

New software updatesEdit 3/14/16: Adobe has released an official update for Captivate 9. Most of you should be able to open Captivate and select Help > Updates to launch the Adobe Application Manager and select the release. For those of you who need an alternate method, you can download the patch from the CP Downloads page. See the Release Notes and this Adobe Blog post for more details on this rather extensive update, including new Responsive Skins, improved ‘Roundtripping’, and improved Rulers, Guides, and State options.

A summary of current (as of this post) updates for the more ‘popular’ eLearning development tools; Lectora, Storyline, and Captivate – along with thoughts on a couple other tools: Continue reading Authoring Tool Updates

Caffeinated Lectora News

LectoraLogoThe pace at which Trivantis strives to improve their Lectora product is like the Avengers on coffee drips. Just a few months after the 12.0.1 and 12.0.2 updates comes a significant 12.1 release. While some features are more an effort to catch-up to competitors (i.e. character libraries), others are setting new bars. With the Lectora Inspire 12.1 release, there are several notable updates… Continue reading Caffeinated Lectora News

Lectora 12.0.2 update…

Lectora has another service pack release…so quickly after their 12.0.1 release in January!

On one hand, now that’s responsive! On the other, maybe they should have QA’d the 12.0.1 release a bit more closely 🙂

Patch for Inspire

Patch for Publisher

Only a few updates in this release…

  • Using the “Go To Web Address” action to open a PDF document in Run Mode no longer crashes Lectora.
  • Issues that prevented button actions and effects from rendering properly in Internet Explorer have been resolved. Tags have been added to all published pages to prompt IE to run in compatibility mode in order to ensure the most modern browser experience.
  • Users can now use the Enter key to select a button in published content when JAWS is running and the Web Accessibility Settings option has been set.
  • Issues have been resolved that required users to select the “OK” button twice in a pop-up message when working with published content from titles using Web Accessibility Settings.

“As with all Lectora updates, users will receive the service pack through the auto-update inside the product, or they can download the service pack update program on our website: http://lectora.com/service-pack-downloads/. You can navigate to this page by selecting Support > Downloads & Release Notes from the main menu.”

See our previous post on the initial Lectora 12.0.1 patch release for a bit more detail and insights on Lectora…

Lectora 12 update

Lectora 12 was released in December, 2014…and in a reflection of their commitment to the product, Trivantis has quickly released a patch to address some issues found with that most recent version (which ties nicely to one of our 2015 predictions that Trivantis will re-assert their product. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Adobe respond that quickly…)

See the release notes here for the Lectora 12.0.1 patch. If you are a current Lectora 12 user, you may have noticed the patch availability through the auto-update feature within the product. If not,  you can download the patch directly.

If you’re fairly new to Lectora, or want to get a general insight to the capabilities, visit their demo page for variety of ‘How-To’ and other sample courses.

Lectora is an often-underrated product with a strong history. Lectora 12 seems to have two primary goals: Continue reading Lectora 12 update
