Adobe Anywhere taps the cloud, lets low-power PCs edit video

Adobe Anywhere taps the cloud, lets low-power PCs edit video | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it
Adobe Anywhere shifts the hard number crunching of video editing to a server, allowing even ultraportable PCs to edit as if they were workstations.

 

This sounds so great, and not just because it's an Adobe thing (and we all know I'm fairly pro-Adobe with many things). Why isn't Microsoft or Google on top of this, or are they and I don't know it? Or even Apple? The more that heavy processing like video is done in the cloud, the more that mobile is going to be an everyday for...everything.

Adobe Presenter Mobile App for iOS with AICC Tracking

Adobe Presenter Mobile App for iOS with AICC Tracking | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

I haven't test yet, but I am interested to see how this supports synced audio and animations.

 

The good thing about Adobe Presenter is that it produces accessible courseware compared to Articulate Presenter or Storyline,  which don't produce files that meet Section 508 requirements - if you produce for Govt or large clients.

 

Adobe Presenter Mobile, a new app from the iTunes App store plays your Presenter Flash files, right from the web on iPad and other iDevices.  You publish your eLearning project once, and the Presenter Flash files will play back from either a Flash plugin in any web browser, or from the Adobe Presenter Mobile App.

Simple rules, complex behaviours: gamification and learning | Ben Betts is... | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it
One of the most common criticisms I see of Gamification for learning is its simplistic, behavioural approach when what we really need to foster is more complex, creative knowledge creation. Increasingly, I don't see a conflict.

 

This is a really interesting article. The basis is simple--as many good things are. Sometimes it comes down to simple rules that can make something work so effectively.
