Abstract: Teachers have been using machines to facilitate instruction for almost 100 years (Benjamin, 1988). Many of the same principles of learning used by these early machines continue to form the foundation for modern e-learning software. The objective of this breakout session is for participants to discuss how e-learning software programs like Adobe Captivate®, Articulate®, and Lectora® can be used to design lessons that capitalize on effective instructional techniques such as active responding, mastery, scripting, branching scenarios, and individualized feedback. During the session participants will learn how to quickly create their own content using the award-winning Adobe Captivate® 6 e-learning software. By the time participants leave the session they should have a better understanding of some of the pitfalls and benefits of incorporating e-learning software in their courses.
