Creating Animated GIF Using Image Sequence

In a previous post, I demonstrated how to build an animated sequence using Adobe Animate. You can watch that video here: https://elearning.adobe.com/2020/05/creating-animated-gif-using-adobe-animate/

While I use Adobe Animate, in the comments of the previous animated GIF video, it was mentioned that you can also use Adobe Photoshop. That is absolutely correct and many people do use Photoshop to make GIFs. In the previous video though, I made an animated GIF using a Shape Tween effect. That would be extremely difficult to produce in Photoshop. In this video tutorial I show you another advantage of Adobe Animate when it comes to making animated GIFs. Using a sequence of images you can create an animated GIF in seconds.

The images used in the tutorial came from 3D Studio Max. Most people in the eLearning world probably don’t have that tool. However, what was done can also be done with 3D Blender (https://www.blender.org/download/) or Unity (https://store.unity.com/download). Both these 3D programs are free to download and use. Learning these programs will take a while but thankfully there are a lot of online tutorials to help.

Use Photoshop to Add Texture to Background

Why I Love Dreamweaver

Adobe has made it very easy to insert web content into your Captivate projects. This allows you as an eLearning developer to get past any limitations within Captivate. However, creating native HTML5 content can be a daunting task. I’ve used a variety of web development tools over the years but I keep coming back to Dreamweaver. This video shows 5 (plus a bonus ) reason why I like using Dreamweaver.

SCORM Log (Let’s peek under the hood)

Have you ever needed to verify a learner’s responses? Wondered what the Reviewer answered on question four? Do you find yourself troubleshooting quiz scores, completions, or other SCORM standards? Now you can in ReviewMyElearning.com!

The SCORM log in RMeL enables you to track all the SCORM communications between your course and our service. Viewing the SCORM log is easy:

  1. On the course details page there is a button next to each Reviewer that has started the course.
  1. Click the button and that Reviewer’s SCORM log will popup.

Another great feature you will find there is the option to reset the Reviewer’s SCORM history. By resetting the history Reviewers will be able to restart the course as if it was their first time.

Watch the video below to learn more about the SCORM log, what you can do with it,  and the advantages of being able to reset a Reviewer.

Converting Seconds to Hours, Minutes and Seconds

In a previous tutorial, I showed how to use the Modulus operator (https://elearning.adobe.com/2020/04/learn-about-the-operator-modulus/) This tutorial will show an example of how Modulus can be used when converting a given number of seconds to hours, minutes and seconds. This can be handy when you want to time a learner in a section or on a specific screen. 

Cheers
