Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello, this is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks. Welcome to the 97th episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast series. Last week, Dave Powell talked about “SCORM.” This week, Dave defines “wizards.” So I ask you, do you know your e-learning lingo?

Mary Kay: Hi, Dave. So tell us about wizards?

Dave Powell: A wizard is a small program that prompts users through the steps of a software action. Users are asked to input information as they proceed through the wizard’s screens. Meanwhile, the wizard completes the procedure steps in the background.

The whole concept was introduced in Microsoft Publisher in 1991 and was then incorporated in Microsoft Windows 95. Today many different wizards and many different programs guide users through complex and difficult process.

Mary Kay: Thanks Dave, have a great afternoon.

Dave: You too, talk with you soon!

Mary Kay: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to episode 97 of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast. This week, Dave Powell talked about wizards. The episode 97 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.
