What's the best e-learning authoring tool out there? That's a lot like asking, "What's the best car on the road?" The answer can be very subjective, and in the end it's based on what matters most to you. Identifying key features and characteristics that differentiate tools - such as price, ease of use, interactivity, accessibility, and mobile compatibility - can help you make the best choice to meet your needs.
In this session you’ll gain perspective on how popular e-learning authoring tools, Storyline and Captivate, stack up in these categories. Take a quick, under-the-hood look at both tools to get a sense of what it's like to work with them. You’ll learn some of the finer points around supporting responsive design, accessibility, and how they compare for specific use cases, such as systems training. You’ll leave this session ready to make better, more informed decisions.
