The cost is always the thing, but Adobe shine.
For the creative industries and creatives Adobe are unsurpassable.
I hear my name in this mix.
When I assess a new e-learning tool I find myself giving several a go. There are blogs in Diaryland, Edublogs, Wordpress and the OU. I have a presence on YouTube, Flickr, Tumblr, in LiveJournal and Blogger. I've tried eportfolio systems MyStuff (OU), Mahara and PebblePad.
(The tearing my hair out guy courtesy of MMCLearning whose seminar I attended at Learning Technologies. Give me a moment in my life and I'll do their Diploma in Digital Marketing.)
I have in front of me the Adobe eLearning Suite 2 on a 30 day trial.
To do this justice I'm thinking to myself 45-90 mins a day.
Will this underline February 2011?
I favour big and established brands like Adobe and can make Adobe Photoshop sing thanks to a training CD-rom I used. DIY learning or self-taught can work.
Now that I've declared my interest I guess I should load it up and make a start.
Twelve years I was learning Dreamweaver ... before that Avid off-line editing.
Tomorrow something else.
There's more on this HERE. Though under a Top 100 chart based on under 300 self-selecting 'e-learning' professionals from around the world doesn't strike me as statistically saying much.
