Trivantis currently offers these instructor-led training classes:
Lectora Fundamentals – Learn the basics of Lectora Inspire, including an introduction to many of the menus within the application and the various object properties. In this class, build an eLearning course from scratch consisting of chapters, sections, pages, and a graded test. Include a variety of media within your title to engage learners and learn how to create basic actions (such as rollovers), navigation, customized buttons, and various question types. You will also learn how to publish a title to ReviewLink, a free online review tool, and to HTML for access via the Web.
Lectora Intermediate – This class goes above and beyond the basic uses of Lectora, focusing primarily on the use of variables and conditional actions within a title. In this course, you’ll learn how to take your Lectora knowledge to the next level. You’ll use variables to track user interactivity, display both generic and user information, and conditionally branch within a title. Finally, you’ll learn how to publish a title to AICC/SCORM, for use within a learning management system. (Before taking this course, you should be comfortable with creating a course structure, adding content to a title, creating buttons, and have an overall understanding of Lectora’s book metaphor, inheritance, and modes. These concepts are covered in the Lectora Fundamentals training.)
Lectora Extreme/Games – This class focuses on advanced uses of objects, variables, and conditional action groups to create sophisticated eLearning content and games. You will learn how to build on existing knowledge and experience and combine seemingly unrelated functionality in advanced ways, including:
- Using user-defined variables and random value variables to create complex conditional actions
- Creating action groups to perform multiple actions and repetitive sequences needed for gaming logic
- Using non-typical combinations of tests and questions to create instructional review games
Before taking the Lectora Extreme/Games course, you should have a solid understanding of:
- Actions (e.g., triggers, actions, sequencing, delays)
- Questions (e.g., choices, properties, point values, feedback)
- Tests (e.g., test properties, behavior, results)
…and some experience with User-defined Variables and conditional actions.
Camtasia Training – Camtasia Studio 8 for Lectora is more than a simple screen recorder. In this training class, you’ll learn how to record on-screen activity to create professional-quality video tutorials; edit content with zoom and pan effects, callouts, and text; include interactive elements to encourage learner involvement; and produce and publish videos to a variety of formats including use within a Lectora title.
