  1. What is Adobe Captivate 6?

    Adobe® Captivate® 6 software helps you rapidly author a wide range of interactive eLearning and HTML5-based mLearning content. Easily create product demos in HD, application simulations, and soft skills and compliance training. Import Microsoft® PowerPoint slides and enrich with multimedia, interactive elements and quizzes. Deliver content to virtually any device, including iPads.

  2. This interview with a portrait artist -, highlights the fact that art and creative design is very often a result of experimenting and exploring features of software that you haven’t used before. I love the way Oleg accidentally discovered the artistic possibilities with Photoshop and I’ve been trying the same with many of Photoshop CS6’s new features. You can download the demo version from here - and start exploring your try it out yourself!

  3. Photoshop - Using Content-Aware Patch
    In this movie, learn about the new Content-Aware Patch tool. See how to use this tool to heal away undesirable portions of an image. Select a specific region, and Photoshop automatically defines a randomized fill pattern. Consider it a more selective version of Content-Aware Fill.

  4. I’ve always wanted to harness the complexities of statistics and mathematics to define my art. Using numbers to generate art rather than let design define it. The thought of formulae and algorithms controlling a visually appealing output is a nerd’s wet dream and this video - of Generative design company Informative, is a huge inspiration. “Creating choices and making choices” to let art design itself is such an unexplored approach!

  5. Transform Microsoft® PowerPoint presentations into interactive eLearning content. Make courses come alive with actors, themes, and interactive elements. Include eye-catching quizzes, add branching scenarios, and publish to desktops, mobile devices, and LMSs.
    Create interactive eLearning content and publish it on mobile devices, including iPads, using HTML5. Send scoring data to leading SCORM- and AICC-compliant LMSs and track learner progress.

  6. Watch the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Roadshow videos on demand...

  7. I bought the new CS6 from Adobe for my development team at office and they wanted a simple walk through of all the features in Dreamweaver and flash. The dev suite is quite cool and this video covers all the new features in one simple place. It’s pretty awesome this roadshow idea.
