If you’re one of the 65,098 people who’ve viewed our most popular forums thread, Examples of Articulate in Action, then you may have already seen the post by community member jjensen about his Articulate Presenter version of Dr. Pausch’s lecture, which he’s made searchable and more. As jjensen notes in his forum post:
This version allows immediate access to any segment of the 1 hr 40 min video, full-text search, no download/installation, etc. etc. etc. This version uses a template we have developed to quickly convert training videos to interactive online training using Articulate, among other tools.
You can view the searchable version of the lecture, which also allows you to jump to any portion of the video via Presenter’s side navigation links, below:
Also of note is that the website of Amer Technology, which created this version of the video, is 100% powered by Articulate Presenter.
Thanks for sharing your work, jjensen.
And condolences to family, friends, and colleagues of Dr. Pausch.
