Lectora Comprehensive Training
This title represents a four-day Lectora class experience that includes Fundamentals, Intermediate, Camtasia for Lectora, and ADA Section 508 Accessibility with Lectora. In addition to a solid discount when these four classes are purchased at once, the attendee will receive a thorough mental workout and walk away with a deep Lectora Inspire skillset. Each of the four classes are typically offered on back-to-back dates and may also be purchased individually.
Learn the basics of Lectora Inspire, including an introduction to many of the menus within the application and the various object properties. In this class, build an eLearning course from scratch consisting of chapters, sections, pages, and a graded test. Include a variety of media within your title to engage learners and learn how to create basic actions (such as rollovers), navigation, customized buttons, and various question types. You will also learn how to publish a title to ReviewLink, a free online review tool, and to HTML for access via the Web.
This class goes above and beyond the basic uses of Lectora, focusing primarily on the use of variables and conditional actions within a title. In this course, you'll learn how to take your Lectora knowledge to the next level. You'll use variables to track user interactivity, display both generic and user information, and conditionally branch within a title. Finally, you'll learn how to publish a title to AICC/SCORM, for use within a learning management system. (Before taking this course, you should be comfortable with creating a course structure, adding content to a title, creating buttons, and have an overall understanding of Lectora's book metaphor, inheritance, and modes. These concepts are covered in the Lectora Fundamentals training.)
Camtasia for Lectora (Half Day)
Camtasia Studio 9 for Lectora is more than a simple screen recorder. In this training class, you’ll learn how to record on-screen activity to create professional-quality video tutorials; edit content with zoom and pan effects, callouts, and text; include interactive elements to encourage learner involvement; and produce and publish videos to a variety of formats including use within a Lectora title. This class is offered as a half day of training.
This class focuses on advanced uses of objects, variables, and conditional action groups to create sophisticated eLearning content and games. You will learn how to build on existing knowledge and experience and combine seemingly unrelated functionality in advanced ways, including:
- Using user-defined variables and random value variables to create complex conditional actions
- Creating action groups to perform multiple actions and repetitive sequences needed for gaming logic
- Using non-typical combinations of tests and questions to create instructional review games
ADA Section 508 Accessibility with Lectora (Half Day)
Accessible e-learning is not only important to government agencies. It is becoming a vital aspect of a well-rounded diversity strategy for corporations and education institutions. In addition to Section 508 compliance as mandated by the US government, this class also covers the WCAG standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments internationally. In this class, you will learn about the standards, how they relate to each other, and they relate to your accessibility strategy. You will also leverage the Lectora features and development best practices to design, develop, and test your e-learning courses for compliance. The goal is to produce accessible courses that are robust, interactive and media-rich.
