Essentials of Adobe Animate for E-Learning Designers

Use Adobe Animate to create interactive HTML5, video, and animation.

Complex simulations, detailed scenarios, and realistic, human-like interactions are difficult to pull off using “rapid e-learning development” tools. A more advanced tool is required to take your desktop and mobile e-learning to the next level. Adobe has released that tool: Adobe Animate. Discover Animate’s place in the e-learning developer’s toolbox, either as the foundation for an entire project, or as a component of the rapid development environment.

Program Overview

Program Overview

For nearly 20 years, Adobe Flash has been the standard for developers looking to add more interactivity, motion graphics, and animation to their projects. With the emergence of HTML5, the demand to create interactive, animated elements that leverage web standards and play on all devices has become more important. Now, Adobe Animate is the new go-to tool. 

At the start of each session, you will download sample code and graphics. Weekly homework assignments will help you learn the core skills necessary to start using Adobe Animate quickly. This workshop takes place using extensive app sharing, so you get to see and experience Adobe Animate during the session, and then work with it on your own between sessions.

What to Expect
  • Technical Requirements: This program is conducted in the WebEx Training Center. Special software is not required. You only need a standard web browser and telephone or VoIP capability to participate. In addition, it is strongly recommended to use a desktop or laptop computer as using a tablet or phone severely limits your ability to fully and actively participate in the program.

Who Should Attend

Who Should Attend

This program is for e-learning creators who have outgrown their development tool and want to bring a higher level of interactivity to their projects. No knowledge of Animate, HTML5, JavaScript, or ActionScript is required, as the session spends little time in the “presentation” and most of the time running Adobe Animate. Learners will need to download and install the trial version of Adobe Animate to complete homework between sessions. An open mind and a desire to learn this powerful software tool are the only requirements.
