I finally got my first chance to hold a copy of Macromedia Captivate The Definitive Guide by Brenda Huettner in my hand today. It looks great (even if it did take a lot longer than expected)! There is nothing quite like opening a box of my own books. Like Christmas without the surprises? Like getting an end-of-year bonus? I wanted to run and show it to someone right away, but as an independent contractor who works from home, the audience-at-hand is very limited. The post office lady smiled, though I don’t think she really got it.
I’ll bring some copies of the book to the STC region 5 conference in November. Since that event is co-sponsored by the STC Instructional Design and Learning SIG, there are sure to be some people there interested in the topic.
