Once our customers see how quickly and easily you can create great looking interactive content
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 3, 2006
Articulate today announced the launch of Articulate Engage, an easy-to-use tool that allows anyone to create compelling learning interaction with stunning visual quality, all without the need for expensive design or programming.
"Engage is a breakthrough for people who want to enhance their e-learning courses with interactivity but don’t have the time, money or skills for complex programming or high-end visual design," says Articulate President Adam Schwartz. "Engage’s intuitive, easy-to-follow templates and options now allow anyone to create stunning, Flash-based interactive content in minutes."
With Engage, e-learning course developers can now actively encourage discovery by prompting learners to interact, such as:
- Examining in greater detail each step of a process.
- Exploring the relationship between timeline events through text, images and sound.
- Drilling down into key elements of a diagram to better understand the main points.
Easy-to-use templates power Engage, and let you create rich-media interactivity in minutes. Users can choose from a wide range of interaction types, including process, timeline, pyramid diagram, labeled graphic, interactive FAQ, and more.
“Once again, Articulate’s done an outstanding job of flattening the design and development curve,” says Joseph F. Fournier II, Chief Learning Architect of Rapid e-Learning LLC. “To be honest, the time spent with the product feels more like play than work. I can focus on the media and the message instead of worrying about programming the interactions.”
The familiar Flash format allows interactions to integrate seamlessly into virtually any e-learning course, or even stand alone on any Web site. By adding lean-forward interactivity, Engage is an essential part of the entire Articulate rapid e-learning suite of products.
“Once our customers see how quickly and easily you can create great looking interactive content,” says Articulate’s Schwartz, “we’re guessing they’ll never be satisfied with passive e-learning content again.”
