I am in the process of deciding if Lectora Inspire is the right tool for our company. I am finding it difficult to find step by step training on the community page. Is Lectora better learned through a classroom training or web training?
This would be a substantial investment for my company so I want to ensure I fully understand the capabilities of the system and that someone without an e-learning background could learn this system overtime to deliver high quality content.February 8, 2016 at 10:03 PM #304910
From my own experience, and with the obvious caveat that learning styles vary, I think so. I learned Lectora mostly on my own, but had significant prior experience in other tools (Director, CourseBuilder, Authorware, Hypercard, Flash, etc.) If you are planning on hiring an instructional designer for future work, though, I’d suggest finding the right person first, then mutually deciding what software works best to develop the kind of content you want. Either way, good luck!February 9, 2016 at 7:56 AM #304916

Hi! Welcome to the community!
Lectora 101 from Ben Pitman is a good book (http://www.amazon.com/Lectora-101-Beginners-Mastering-Volume/dp/1483960331) but I’m not sure if it is up to date on the latest Lectora versions. It’d still be useful though to get the book, download a Lectora trial and go through it at your own pace if you’re looking for a self-guided learning path.
Lectora sells self-paced video-based training (http://trivantis.com/product/lectora-training/) and I’m sure you could get a good deal on buying this together with the licenses. I haven’t used that myself (I’m self-taught but I did have a lot of experience with other tools and development in general).
Finally, there’s a User Conference coming up if you’re looking to combine great training from the best trainers in Trivantis with a visit to sunny Florida 🙂 I know I’ll be there.This post has received 1 vote up.February 9, 2016 at 1:08 PM #304953
