Articulate Flash Player Updater Ready for “Prime Time”

In two previous posts, I had indicated some of the impacts that the new version of Flash Player has had on courses developed in Articulate Presenter and on the user experience of Articulate Engage v1.

The Articulate support team has done an excellent job documenting the fix to the compatability problem, and I am happy to share that the Articulate Flash Player Updater patch is fully operational.  A previous version of this Flash Player Updater had addressed all the challenges associated with the Presenter Output files, but had not succeeded in fixing the problem that caused Engage to fail when loading in a Flash Player v10 loaded machine.  The Updater has now been tweaked and is working perfectly on my machine that is loaded with Flash Player v10.

If you are using Articulate Presenter or Articulate Engage, be sure to download the most recent Flash Player Updater.  Follow the instructions provided by the Articulate Support Team at the following site.

Loading Articulate Presenter Courses in the IntraLearn LMS

A previous article  discussed the interoperability of courses generated by Outstart Trainer and the IntraLearn LMS.  Now it is time to examine the same question in the context of LINGOs’ second e-Learning authoring tool – Articulate Presenter. 

Below you will find instructions to access a course that addresses the topic of “Designing Projects in the International Development, Relief and Conservation Sector.”  This course was designed using Articulate Presenter – the flagship application in the Articulate Rapid e-Learning Suite. 

As you navigate the course, be sure to view page 14 of the course – Writing Descriptive Statements.  On that page, you will see an example of the way that Articulate Engage files can be embedded in a course.  Engage provides a quick and easy alternative to developing web-based interactions  – without needing to purchase Adobe Flash.  Furthermore, unlike Adobe Flash, there is no coding to learn when developing interactions through Articulate Engage  If you would like to learn more about  Engage and/or Presenter visit the Articulate website.
