About the Author

Robert Kennedy III is a former High School and College Educator turned Entrepreneur. He has owned web development and now e-learning/training companies, and has spent almost a decade as a trainer in topics ranging from music industry preparation to technology and learning. Currently, as the owner of RKCS Learning Solutions, Robert spends a great deal of time teaching others how to integrate technologies into their business workflow and training companies on how to develop effective learning modules for their employees.

Robert earned his Masters degree online through the University of Maryland University College and is currently completing his PhD in Educational Technology with Walden University. Although he was a former classroom teacher, he will tell you that online education saved his life.

He is an admitted tech lover; when not working, Robert spends his time playing with or catching up on the latest gadgets. Sites such as CNET, Tech Crunch, and Engadget are probably permanently burned into his screen at this point.

Robert grew up in Bronx, New York, and is therefore legally obligated to be a fan of the New York Yankees. He takes this obligation seriously and watches every Yankees' game on his phone, iPad, computer, or TV. He loves sports in general and can be found playing softball, golf, basketball, or bowling at any point during the year.

I'd like to thank some pretty important people, who have helped me with the production of this book through their time, their sacrifice, and their skill. I'm probably going to forget some names but I hope you'll simply attribute that to age rather than intent. Yeah, I'm getting older and I'm dealing with it. Anyway, on to the names, in no particular order, my wife, Nadia, my lovely kids (yes, this is partly what daddy does when he is in the home office), my parents, Robert and Seslie, and some other really important people, Tom Kuhlmann, David Anderson, Rich Murphy, Christine Abunassar, and of course the team at Packt Publishing, Sarah, Joanna, Vishal, and Kedar. This has been AWESOME!

Preface

Articulate Studio '09 is a powerful authoring tool built to help both the expert trainer and the novice developer to quickly create useful learning experiences. While they can all work together, Articulate Studio '09 is a suite that contains four pieces of software that may be used individually or together. Therefore, this book will contain sections that may be used non-sequentially.

This book is meant to provide technical guidance for building a basic or complex course using the suite. While you are not limited in the creativity you can use in your course, this book will only provide a basic foundation for helping to develop a solid, polished course. You may find many additional and advanced techniques by visiting the Heroes forum on Articulate's website.

What this book covers

Chapter 1, Getting Started with Articulate Suite, covers the basics of the suite, what its capabilities are, and how to begin conceptualizing a basic course.

Chapter 2, Create Your Course with Presenter, covers the basics of creating a simple course using Presenter by itself. It teaches the basics of inserting media elements and assets, as well as preparing basic animations and finally publishing a simple course.

Chapter 3, Preparing Your Player, covers the features, setup, and capabilities of the Articulate Presenter course player. It provides guidance on how to edit color schemes, player elements, and functionality.

Chapter 4, Creating Assessments and Courses with Quizmaker, covers the core concepts behind the creation of basic assessment questions using Quizmaker. It covers the editing of the Quizmaker player and its functionality, and provides basic guidance on assessment creation using basic instructional design principles.

Chapter 5, Taking Your Quiz to the Next Level, shows the user how to use Quizmaker as more than just a basic quizzing tool. This chapter will include concepts on creating a more useful slide in the slide view, basic branching, and scenario concepts, as well as information on how to use Quizmaker to create a standalone course.

Chapter 6, Creating Interactive Content with Engage, discusses quick ways of adding interactive content to your course with Engage.

Chapter 7, Basic Video Editing with Video Encoder, guides the user through the process of basic video editing and file encoding using this tool. The user will learn how to perform basic tweaks as well as customize the video size and performance for your course.

Chapter 8, Combining All Three, shows the user how to finally combine all the three major applications from the suite into one cohesive course. They will also learn how to customize properties and course functionality.
