For those of you who subscribe to the Articulate Word of Mouth Blog or the Rapid e-Learning Developer Blog (both are highly recommended) – you have been hearing a LOT about the new release of the Articulate Rapide e-Learning Development Suite 2009. The LINGOs team has been following the new release with great interest and many of the new features for Articulate Presenter 2009 (in particular) are especially exciting. For example, the new audio recording utility allow developers to circuvent the process of editing sound files in a separate application; the new interface design allows developers to edit audio, animations and scripts in a single window; and the 2009 version allows courses to be outputed directly into a podcast format!
I know many LINGOs members share our enthusiasm for the new version, since I have received a number of inquiries over the past month regarding LINGOs’ plans to upgrade. Good News! Last week we completed a discusson with the Articulate team and LINGOs will be upgrading to the new version before the end of January. More information about the exact date and the upgrade process will be forthcoming. In the mean time, be sure to visit the Articulate site to learn about the new features included in all of the products that make up the Articulate Rapid e-Learning Development Suite v2009.
