Last week Adobe announced the imminent release of version 2 of Adobe Captivate (formerly Macromedia Captivate). I didn't mention it then 'cause you can't actually get your hands on the product yet - they say another 3-4 weeks before it ships. Oddly, in one of the comments the product manager says this delay is due in part because of the time it takes to press CDs, produce boxes, and update the download section. Wow. Doesn't that sound Web 2.0! We can't download the product until it's also available in hard copy :-(
Anyhoo, Adobe is offering a series of free one-hour webinars to introduce the new version, and one of the webinars is even geared towards using Captivate 2 in Education - that's the one I signed up for. The description:
Adobe® Captivate™ 2 for EducationRight now they only have one session scheduled for education - Tuesday, Sept. 26th from 3-4 EST.
*Please note this session is designed for those in the Education industry*
