Bulk Video Preloader?

Hey there boys and girls, 

Lately we have been running into some clients with not the greatest internet connections who want to make engaging training that contains many videos. This is a problem for them because it causes the course to be bogged down and really slow. 

We are looking into solutions for this, and have been recommended the Articulate Preloader over at Elearningenhanced.

I was just wondering, before we purchase it, if there are any other options out there, or what people think about it. Do you have any first hand experience using it? Does it work seamlessly in an LMS? Is it worth it? 

Thanks for any feedback on this product.

Hi, Madison:

As far as I know, that's the only out-of-the-box solution available designed to work with Articulate, which is a bargain at $50 if you consider what you'd have to pay a Flash developer familiar with Articulate to come up with a custom solution.  James Kingsley's work is always top-notch, so you needn't worry on that mark.

I've not used this particular widget myself, but have used another, similar preloader James released for free a couple years ago. Worked like a charm.  As far as it working with the LMS, I see no reason it shouldn't, but it's hard to be 100% certain about any LMS without trying it out.

Good luck!
