Adobe Captivate Classic Beyond Essentials (Advanced)

Adobe Captivate Classic Beyond Essentials (Advanced) Courseware (CAP19.2)

A 2-day course covering the advanced features of Adobe Captivate Classic (version 11.8.1 or newer).

This course is hands on from the beginning. In the very first module, the trainer will guide students through the process of creating a highly interactive software simulation. They will learn to control the text in the simulation’s automatic text captions before you record by editing a text capture template.

Students will then learn to:

  • Use Fluid Boxes and Breakpoints to create responsive eLearning that allows content to automatically reflow and fit any size display, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
  • Create Virtual Reality eLearning, allowing learners to immerse themselves in your course.
  • Create interactive videos that include knowledge checks and other interactive objects.
  • Fine-tune your Captivate skills by learning about object styles, master slides, themes, and creating and using project templates.
  • Engage your learners by adding variables, learner interactions, and drag-and-drop activities.
  • Create branching scenarios that allow learners to plot their path through your eLearning course.
  • Master advanced actions that make slide objects perform amazing feats such as showing, hiding, changing states, adjusting variables, applying conditional expressions, decision blocks, and more.
  • Ensure your eLearning is accessible by adding accessibility text, keyboard shortcuts, closed captions, and setting a tab order.
  • Enable Captivate’s reporting features and output content packages so your eLearning reports results to Learning Management Systems using SCORM, AICC, Tin Can, and more.

This book features:

  • Captivate projects, images, audio files, and other assets to get started.
  • Dozens of step-by-step, hands-on activities.
  • Hundreds of screen captures.
  • Confidence Checks to challenge your new skills.
