Articulate Presenter Training Overview

Accelebrate's Introduction to Articulate Presenter '09 course teaches attendees how to use Presenter to create self-paced, narrated training. If you want to get training on the Articulate suite of products, called Studio Pro '09 (which includes Presenter, Engage and Quizmaker), we recommend you take Articulate Studio Pro Training: Introduction to Articulate Studio '09 instead.
