The Rapid Elearning Blog


Today’s authoring tools make it easy to leverage the power of multimedia. Your courses can include not only graphics and illustrations but also narration, music, screencasts, and videos.

There’s a lot to know.  The good news is you don’t need to be a professional audio engineer or video producer to build good elearning.  But it sure does help to know a little about both and how to get the best quality possible.

These posts provide tips and tricks to help you get the most out of the audio & video you do use in your elearning courses.
