Captivate and Storyline
eLearning-specific software can crank out material.
These packages are sort of an intermediate step between standard HTML5 and full-blown custom Flash development. They usually export to both Flash and HTML5 formats, but many of the features are flash-only. Some things to be aware of when going down this road:
- These are really designed to work around page templates. Think of them as interactive PowerPoint show development tools.
- Using these tools, it is possible to crank out a lot of work, as long as you are fine with consistency across all of your lessons. It is really the template design that takes time.
- These tools support simple interactions and animations that are intended to be compatible with HTML5 under most circumstances, which means they are fairly limited in what they can do.
