Advanced Actions / Learning interactions in Captivate 5 (Culminates in Soft Skills Sample)

We had a great time at this week’s eSeminar, where the focus was on creating custom learning interactions using Adobe Captivate 5’s new Advanced Actions tools. This one is fairly advanced as Captivate authoring goes, but if you’ve had a little exposure to Captivate now I’d encourage you to have a look. The tools provided manage to be both very simple to use, and very powerful options to extend the functions normally available.

The OnDemand recording of the eSeminar is available here;
Advanced Interaction Development for Adobe Captivate 5 for Advanced Users

This one hour session will focus on Advanced Learning Interaction Design, Pedagogical and Development issues for eLearning. It will be hosted by Dr. Allen Partridge, Adobe eLearning Evangelist and is intended for Advanced users of Adobe Captivate, eLearning Professionals, Academics, and Training Professionals.

During the session i presented a number of samples. I used a Captivate project for the slides rather than a PowerPoint, so i’m providing links to all of the resources here, and i’m embedding the Cp Soft skills project that we finished up with so you can see how it is used.
