Eye-openers from eLearning Guild's Authoring & Development Tools Webinar

I'm sitting in listening to the e-Learning Guild's 360 report on authoring and development tools and I was surprised at the top three tools their survey uncovered. The order is:
  1. Adobe Captivate - 66%
  2. Microsoft PowerPoint - 58%
  3. Microsoft Word - 47%
I guess I am either niave or blinded by the fact that people use some very basic tools for elearning development.

More surprising was the typical way teams train on authoring tools.
  • 81 % reported teaching themsleves
  • 70% learn from peers
  • 34% learn from formal external training
