  3. Lectora Publisher – Lectora Publisher is the standard version of Lectora.Lectora was complete, suitable and useful e-learning software for creating an interactive learning media. Lectora can be used so easy by the teacher that the teacher can create media of learning relate to his/her subject. Most of teachers already recognize power point and adobe flash; both are good for creating learning media. Although by doing some ways, power point and Adobe flash can be used for making an interesting learning media. But the aim of creating power point is for presentation, not for learning media.

    Then Adobe Flash is software from Adobe that is used for making animation, and it is not for creating learning media. Lectora, from the beginning it was created for e-learning’s need. Moreover, Lectora can be used for learning’s need in two ways, online and offline and can be created quickly and easily. By using Lectora, we can combine flash, record video, combine picture and screen capture. When we install at once about 800 Mb, the following software include:

  1. Flypaper

Flypaper is used for combining picture, video, flash, animation, game memory etc. this software produces file in swf form so that is easy to integrate with Lectora. 

     2. Camtasia

Camtasia is used the steps that we did on monitor screen. This software can be used to edit video and publish as a video

     3. Snagit

Snagit can be used to capture the monitor screen because it has a print screen technology. In old way, we capture image on the monitor screen, then put it in paint first but by using Snagit we do not need it. Snagit can do more than that because Snagit can combine some pictures as one and publish in various picture files.

  Beside the software above, by implementing Lectora we can compose more interesting and easier evaluation than power point or flash. Some evaluations can be composed as follow: (1) Multiplechoice; (2) True/False; (3) Matching; (4) Shortanswer; (5) Drag andDrop (6) Hot Spot; (7) Essay;and (8) Fill inBlank
