Articulate skins – custom development and training

Articulate logoWebducate regularly uses the excellent software provided by Articulate for the rapid development of e-learning resources. With the growing popularity of this software it is increasingly important to differentiate your courses by using custom Articulate skins. These skins can also incorporate additional functionality not provided by the generic Articulate Presenter players as well as offering the possibility to brand courses to provide a unique and integrated learning experience.
