IconLogic + GoAnimate

We’re excited to announce our partnership with training company, IconLogic.

IconLogic is hosting a a new training course, Creating eLearning Videos with GoAnimate

Drawing from extensive experience in classroom training, courseware development, technical documentation, and eLearning development, IconLogic distills and delivers clear, focused information in a manner that communicates relevance and usability. They have directly trained thousands of professionals on dozens of applications including Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline, Adobe RoboHelp, TechSmith Camtasia, QuarkXPress, and many more. That list will now include GoAnimate!

IconLogic Training Course

While creating videos with GoAnimate is fairly simple, making a good video requires a fair amount of forethought. We cover the basics in our free weekly webinar, but an effective video needs to tell a story. In this live, hands-on, instructor-led class, you’ll learn how to create a video in GoAnimate from the ground up. You’ll write a script, create a storyboard, animate characters, and add audio voiceover. Then you’ll watch as the video is combined with Adobe Captivate to create interactive, SCORM-compliant eLearning.

Do you already have fully designed and corporate-branded PowerPoint decks that could be more engaging as a video? Great! You’ll learn how to bring those assets into GoAnimate as the basis for a new training video. You’ll add an animated character to act as the presenter and record your own audio in GoAnimate that will bring your training to life.
