With the upcoming demise of Flash I am having to future proof legacy work created in Lectora, replacing SWF with HTML. Here’s the steps I am taking
Recently I sat in on the Lectora Inspiration Wednesday, “The Magic Behind Powerful eLearning Design – Learning Theory”. I always appreciate the efforts of organisations such as Trivantis to reach out to the e-learning community and offer webinars such as this to increase my knowledge as an instructional designer and developer. The topic was really… Continue reading Interactive board games in Lectora
You never stop learning
As a learning and development professional of many years standing I recognise that I am always learning whether in my professional or personal life.
The postings here are all about my experiences as a trainer and a trainee, and as a person. I am also constantly seeking out new information and sometimes I will share my discoveries here. Your own thoughts on my postings are more than welcome.

There is no option to create a selected or visited state, for… Continue reading Changing contents
I recently relived the experiences (and the smells!) of the darkroom. Many years ago in the pre-digital age I spent a great deal of time printing and developing my own photographs but, like many others, I moved away from the older technology. In a sense it is very similar to many trainers I know.They have… Continue reading Relearning old tricks
When it comes to creating e-learning for adults it is usually better to let them find out things for themselves. They will occasions when you will need to guide them, giving them the information they need to complete an activity, to sum up afterwards, or to provide additional background material. Sometimes this can be quite… Continue reading Curtains for Lectora
