Creating a Timeline Screen with Adobe Captivate 5.5

In an eLearning course, we create different types of screens with rollover audio, rollover text, rollover image, rollover slidelet, click-reveal text, click-display animation, pop-ups, tabs, etc. We saw how to create some of these screens in my previous blog posts. Now let’s see how we can create a timeline screen with Adobe Captivate 5.5 using advanced actions.

A timeline screen is the best way to graphically represent the events in chronological order, especially historical events. You can weave these events in a story form and aesthetically present them one-by-one in small chunks.

Here’s an example of a timeline screen:

Liked it? The logic used to create this screen is the same as tabbed screen. The only difference is in the graphical representation. So if you wish to create such a screen for your course, click here to see the steps.

Happy captivating! :)
