Course Description

On this class you will learn the higher-end, more advanced functionality of Adobe Captivate. You will improve your screen recording skills via project templates and by pre-editing your text captions. You will learn how to record and edit video demos that allow you to capture screen actions in real-time.

After importing quiz questions you will learn how to create random quizzes using question pools and random question slides. You will create lessons that automatically reflow to fit just about any kind of display (including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smart phones).

You will use object styles, master slides, themes, and advanced actions. You will engage your learners using variables, widgets, and learner interactions (including drag and drop). You will create branching scenarios that allow learners to plot their own path through your content.

You will create assessable content by adding such 508-compliant features as accessibility text, keyboard shortcuts, and closed captions.

Discover Captivate’s reporting features and, along the way, learn about Learning Management Systems.
