Aggregator helps in creating modular, scalable and reusable rapid e-learning content development using Adobe Captivate. It also helps in parallel development of e-learning content.
Let us now explore the key enhancements done in Aggregator in Adobe Captivate 5.
- Branching in Aggregator – Movies in the aggregator can now branch to other movie without exiting from aggregator. Steps for doing this are very simple. Just make sure that the branch source and branch destination files are added in the Aggregator. Suppose you have a button with success action of “Open another project”. At run time whenever you click on the button, if the target movie is also included in the aggregator, then it will branch to the target movie without leaving from Aggregator.
- Overlay TOC – With Adobe Captivate 5, it is now possible to have overlay TOC. To have overlay TOC in Aggregator, just make sure that you choose the file with overlay TOC as the master movie in Aggregator.
- Custom pre-loader – Adobe Captivate 4 always had the predefined pre-loader for Aggregator. Now in Adobe Captivate 5, you can set your favorite pre-loader for Aggregator movie. This pre-loader will be shown whenever Aggregator movie needs to wait for loading the content movie.
- Right click and Send e-mail– With Adobe Captivate 5, Aggregator can now accept right click. Aggregator is also able to honor the send e-mail action.
Hope this helps in making better use of Aggregator.
