There are different ways of adding audio to an eLearning project in Adobe Captivate 5.5 and one of the ways is to convert Text to Audio with the powerful functionality of  Text-to-Speech in Adobe Captivate. As I was thinking about it, a thread in LinkedIn drew my attention, that talked about creating Text-to-Speech audio and then reusing that audio in a different project. Leslie Bivens, an Adobe Captivate Expert, has added her comments with a solution and I thought of creating a tutorial based on that… Thank you Leslie :)

My Experience with Creating a Scenario-based Course: Part 3

In Part 1 of this blog series, I shared my experience about the content acquisition and analysis phase for creating a scenario-based course. In Part 2, I shared how I created a storyline and identified the critical steps in it and further started storyboarding and shared the introduction screen with you. When storyboarding for this course, the single most important thing for me was to keep it conversational and follow the actual lingo that the customer care representatives are supposed to follow.

The introduction screen helped us understand that Lisa was a new joinee in the team and she was about to take her first call. In the next screen, we need to show how she starts the call and what the customer issue was. I got this information by listening to the recorded calls and SME interviews.

Enabling Assessment Module after Course Completion

Last week, a Captivate user had posted a question on our Facebook page. She was working on a course which had a few modules and an assessment in the end. In this course, she wanted to create a customized menu page with all the modules and assessment listed and clicking them would take the learner to respective module/assessment. The requirement was to have the learners take the modules in any order before the final assessment becomes accessible.

So here’s an answer to your question, Christine :)

In this example, I have created a course with four modules and an assessment. The requirement is to allow the learner to attempt the assessment section only after they have completed taking all the modules. Try it out…

So the logic used here is to Continue reading…
