e-learning Game Templates

Need something to spice up your training?

I came across these products at the recent DevCon09 conference - and purchased them all. I am using them in both Articulate Presenter and Rapid Intake FlashForm training classes.

You have to have Flash to make your customizations but there are tutorials on the site that show you how to do it. You get both the FLA and the SWF files so you can brand the games for your clients.

The prices are reasonable enough that like me, you will want to have all the templates in your e-Learning tool box.

Free screen capture and recorder software

I am evaluating ActivePresenter, a screen capture and presentation creation tool designed for eLearning. The standard version of the software has more features and is $250 until August 1.

ActivePresenter can record a presentation and convert the file to a number of different formats including AVI, WMV, MPEG4/MP4, Flash, HTML, interactive AJAX, or document formats (PDF, DOC, PPT). I am mainly interested in the interactive AJAX component as an output method.
