Years of innovation, evolution and experience have led to an absolutely amazing tool capable of creating virtually any kind of eLearning content with incredible ease. The hallmarks of Adobe Captivate 6 are genuine, powerful and effortless mobile learning solutions, phenomenal digital video screencasting, and unbelievable out-of-the-box assets including awesome interactions that work in Flash and HTML5, a giant library of hundreds of Actors to add personalization to your projects and jaw-dropping themes that facilitate rapid development so well, you might just call it instant.

iPads and Mobile, Here we come!
The eLearning industry has been aching for a solution that will facilitate robust and reliable delivery of eLearning content to the latest mobile devices. Support for iPads, Tablets, and other mobile devices is just a click away through Adobe Captivate 6’s hot new publish to HTML5 output. Captivate 6 now publishes natively to HTML5 as well as the traditional Flash and other output options. Not only does it output for seamless iPad publishing via HTML5, it also exports MP4 video to facilitate impressive Just-In-Time training.
