Organize your eLearning Projects: Grouping Slides in Adobe Captivate 7

hot markerThis week I hosted Adobe Captivate Developer Anita Horsley in an eSeminar and was thrilled to learn a cool new tip. (Yup, even I didn’t realize that you could do this nifty little trick with your eLearning modules.)

Permit me to set the stage. You are building your latest learning module in Adobe Captivate. You know that the module is essentially four sections, one for each of three big topics and one for the final assessment. But it’s a long project, and you’ve got dozens, maybe even hundreds of slides. Every time you go to search for the start point of section 2 or three you find yourself scrolling the thumbnail section for Continue reading…

Power in the Box

Sometimes you don’t want to turn the page. It’s typical in eLearning projects to assemble the module as a series of slides, and many times you can get all of the information that you want in a single slide, but sometimes, you want to provide optional information or include an opportunity for a simple, custom interaction that gives additional information. One really cool way Continue reading…

Shared Actions- Now Re-Use Advanced Actions across your Captivate projects

“The biggest difference between time and space is that you can’t reuse time.”

Need a better solution to create similar advanced action again and again?
Ever wondered how to use a specific advanced action in multiple projects?
Are you a fan of advanced actions?

If you say YES to any of the above, then read on.

Many times you had to create multiple advanced actions which have same set of actions, but contain different set of objects/slides/audio files.
For example, if you have to execute Show/Hide/Apply Effect actions with different objects, the only way was to create many advanced actions.

Let’s consider a project with five buttons. When each button is clicked, you want to show/hide different objects and play different audio.

To achieve this:

  • Prior to Adobe Captivate 7:   You had to create five different advanced actions.If you needed these advanced actions in two different projects, you had to create ten more additional advanced actions.
  • Now, with Adobe Captivate 7: All you have to do is to create a single Shared Action and use it any number of times within the project or across projects.
