The Captivate 9.0.2 Update adds insane speed and performance enhancements

Moving at the speed of light.

Moving at the speed of light.

I have been working for a while now with the Adobe Captivate engineering team and several customers on a project that should be nicknamed, Project Light Speed. This is a project that normally wouldn’t garner much focus, because the focus of the project was to optimize performance of the Captivate Projects playback on mobile devices, on desktops, and even within the authoring tool. I know – that doesn’t sound all that glamorous at first pass, but I want you to think about it for a second… Continue reading…

New Drag and Drop Templates Added to Adobe Captivate 9 Assets Library

Guest Blog by: Thomas Reyes-Cairo, Community Manager at eLearning Brothers

The drag and drop interaction is often a stalwart staple of standard eLearning courses everywhere. And why wouldn’t it be? It provides an opportunity for your learner to visually make associations about everything from terms and definitions to steps in a process. We think Adobe Captivate 9 is a great tool to use this strategy and wanted to create some templates that focused on the fun things you can do with a drag and drop interaction.Drag and Drop 1

Random Feedback in Adobe Captivate

Guest Blog by: Phil Cowcill, Senior eLearning Specialist at Department of National Defence

As most professional eLearning developers know, the user’s experience is very important to the learning process. It’s often what makes a good course a great course. It does take a little extra effort in order to make the experience better, but it is often well worth the effort.

One thing that learners get tired of is repetitive feedback. Even if you add qualitative feedback, wouldn’t it be nice if the first part of the feedback is automatically generated. This blog will step you through the process of creating random feedback for both the correct and incorrect answer.

New Intro Animations Added to Adobe Captivate 9 Assets Library

Guest Blog by: Thomas Reyes-Cairo, Community Manager at eLearning Brothers

Everyone remembers the classroom presentations of yore: still screens of text with the occasional picture or background image. (Or, if you can recall even further back, plain black text on a transparency sheet projected onto a white backdrop.) Boring, right? There’s no doubt that creating a visually explosive eLearning course can help catch your learner’s eye and give a more natural and satisfying user experience. This is why we wanted to spend some time and effort highlighting the animation features of Adobe Captivate 9.

New geolocation enabled scenario and interaction templates added to Adobe Captivate assets

Guest Blog by: Thomas Reyes-Cairo, Community Manager at eLearning Brothers

International audiences have been on our minds a lot recently. In addition to the recent update of over 20,000 new international cutout people to the Asset Store, we’ve taken an interest in the geolocation features of Captivate 9 for our templates.

First introduced with Captivate 8, geolocation support provided an opportunity to use a learner’s location as a trigger for specific events within your course. This means that you could use a location to determine the educational content that a user sees, the look and feel of the course they are in, and even the correct answers and feedback in an interaction. Using geolocation gives you an added measure of customization to your eLearning, and we really wanted to try to highlight some of this with these two new templates. Continue reading…

Advanced Search Options and New Games added to Captivate Assets Library

The biggest part of our changes comes to the Cutout People section. We’ve spent a lot of time updating the keywords and categories so you’ll having an easier time finding the exact pose you’ll need. We have categories for gender, pose, ethnicity, industry, and more! Just use the new dropdown menu search feature to help refine your search. Select and deselect each of the different keywords and it automatically updates your results to reflect the change. Finding the right cutouts has never been easier! Continue reading…
