Adobe Captivate is one of the most popular eLearning development tools in the world. As your class begins, you’ll get comfortable with the Captivate interface by exploring an existing Captivate project. You’ll learn to use the Filmstrip, explore the inspectors, and poke around other areas of the Captivate interface. After exploring a bit, it’s time to roll-up your sleeves and get to work. You’ll create a soft skills eLearning lesson from scratch (soft skills eLearning includes, but is not limited to, onboarding, conflict resolution, and compliance training). You’ll work with themes, add slides, work with placeholders to add text and images. You’ll even add interactive buttons that will allow the learner to control the pace of the lesson.
Once you’re comfortable creating projects, tap into Captivate’s powerful recording features and create both software demonstrations and interactive software simulations. And you’ll leverage Captivate’s multi-mode recording features to record three lessons at the same time (one demo and two simulations).
You’ll learn to add, modify, and control the timing of objects such as text captions, images, and highlight boxes. You’ll learn to record, import and edit audio, and how to further enhance the learner experience by adding interactivity via click boxes, buttons, and text entry boxes.
Engage your learner by adding rollover captions, rollover images, rollover slidelets, zoom areas, quizzes, and knowledge checks to a project. And you’ll leverage and enrich existing Microsoft PowerPoint presentations by importing them into Captivate.
Finally, you’ll learn how to distribute a finished Captivate project to the widest possible audience by publishing SWF, HTML5, and PDFs so that your content can be consumed by learners on virtually any device including desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smart phones.
