Essential Articulate Studio ’09 is designed to help novice to intermediate users of Articulate Studio ’09 get the most from using these tools—Presenter, Engage, Quizmaker, and Video Encoder—to develop quality informational and instructional materials. It was written with the following goals in mind:
Help new users get up to speed as quickly and painlessly as possible
Assist users of previous versions of Articulate Studio (and previous versions of Presenter, Engage, and Quizmaker) in capitalizing on improvements made to these tools in the ’09 versions
Provide tips and tools that make information presentation and instruction faster, easier, and better
Help new and previous users develop information and instruction that is more valuable for the intended audience(s)
This book is unique because it can serve as both a tutorial for the Studio ’09 products and as a primer on designing and building good information and instruction with these tools. The advice and insights are practical and take into account the we-need-it-yesterday environments that most people who use these tools operate in. Many books about online learning discuss how to build good instruction, but this book actually shows you how to build it, using some of the best authoring tools in the industry.
