You can choose from over 180 learning interactivity templates and add games, simulations, brainteasers, interactive diagrams, virtual worlds, etc. All these interactions can then be exported to various formats -- most of the newer interactions support HTML5 output that's iPad friendly. Additionally, you can enhance the repertoire of interactions by adding more packs to your Raptivity installation -- these packs need to be purchased separately.

We have been using the Adobe eLearning Suite extensively lately -- trying out the individual products within the suite, using them within a PowerPoint centric workfklow, and creating tutorials using these concepts on this site. Many Indezine visitors and subscribers would like to know how they can get the product, and try it out before deciding whether they want to buy it or not -- and for a product that costs northwards of $2000 for the full version, that's a very wise approach indeed.

Adobe is a name well known to anyone who works with graphics and media content -- and they bundle several of their award winning programs in suites that contain a set of applications geared towards a specific use. Adobe already has such suites for the Creative and Production categories -- and their newest Suite offering is squarely aimed for the burgeoning eLearning market. The main products in the Adobe eLearning Suite are Captivate, Acrobat, and Presenter. These work directly with Microsoft PowerPoint whereas other products in the Adobe eLearning Suite such as Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Soundbooth, etc aid in making the Suite sweeter and more integrated.

The amount of content available in the form of PowerPoint slides is amazing -- almost every computer literate person has a bank of slides, be it at their company, home, school, university, or elsewhere. Most of this content won't work too well when saved as a document -- but since slides typically have (or should have) small portions of large sized text with contrasting backgrounds and visuals, they end up becoming perfect as content for PDAs and Smartphones.
