Hi Brigitte,

The software you chose depends on what kind of instruction you plan to produce. Very large and very interactive instruction goes well beyond Camtasia or Captivate. I can't address Lectora, because I have never seen it. I use Adobe's new eLearning Suite to build instruction. It includes Captivate, but I don't use it -- I build instructional websites, not PPT projects. I use Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, plus Premier and Camtasia for managing my videos.

I just produced a review of the CS4 eLearning Suite if you would like to see it. It will appear in an ATTW venue so there isn't much chance you can see it otherwise. http://imrl.usu.edu/cs4review/ArtEvaluationofAdobeCS4.pdf

Hi!

Has anyone used Lectora e-learning authoring software?
If so, what exactly did you develop with it? How does
it compare with Camtasia or Captivate (easier/more
difficult to learn, more/less expensive, better/worse
results)? Would you recommend it? As you may have
guessed, I'm quite new at this, so any help is greatly
appreciated!

Thanks!
B. Johnston
