Making Highly Technical Information
Jack has years of experience developing narrated training, demonstrations, and simulations for Windows-based software and other kinds of products and services using Adobe Captivate, the industry's leading eLearning tool. Captivate capabilities include captions, clickable hotspots, videos, and randomized quizzes. It produces Flash technology output files that can easily be incorporated in web pages or can operate independently as self-contained .EXE files.
Jack is experienced using the ADDIE instructional design model (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation) for developing training.
