Topic: “So, what were the right answers, anyway?” Using Advanced Actions and Variables for Quizzing
Description: Have you ever taken a quiz, passed with 80%, but wondered about the 20% you got wrong and why? In many quizzes, as soon as a learner passes a quiz, the course ends and the learner may never find out what the right answers were on the ones they missed — a serious missed learning opportunity for the curious and the conscientious. This session shows one method to quickly and elegantly show the user which question(s) he answered incorrectly and what the correct answer is. Get ready for a dive into conditional variables and a handy tool in the quiz panel you may have overlooked in the past: triggering an advanced action based on a correct or incorrect answer.
In my last blog post, where I had shared a scenario-based course, I got a lot of requests from Captivate users to share the workflow to play audio on the decision screen only the first time learner visits the screen. So on popular demand, here’s a short demonstration, Enjoy!
Yet another chance to win an iPad3… we have launched Scenario-based Training contest on our Facebook Page. I’d encourage you to participate in this contest with your entries. Watch the video below for more details…
After the successful HTML5 contest for Adobe Captivate on our Facebook Page, we’re launching a global contest for the best Scenario-based training content created using Adobe Captivate. This contest is live now on our Facebook page.
Scenario-based courses help learners to try workflows as they proceed and learn as they make mistakes and learn. I wanted to create one such course and thought of taking my HTML5 course on Photography Basics to the next level by adding another scenario, in that way teaching two topics of Photography.

When we create courses for global audience, oftentimes we come across a need for localized version of the course. The common workflow is to create the course in one language and then duplicate the course and then change the language for text/graphics/audio. This is the easiest way to localize content, but is an inefficient workflow for course maintenance, where you need to make the same edits in each version of the course.
To overcome this problem, Adobe Captivate provides you a way to create a single course with multiple language options. This can be done by using Advanced Actions and Variables.
When playing an educational game, going through a course, or answering questions, it’s always desirable by the learners to be able to see a visual indication of their progress. This helps them keep a reality check on how they are performing. The same holds true for learning interactivities and scenarios as well, where a progress bar can indicate whether the learner is headed in the right direction or not.
One of the cool things about Adobe Captivate is that you can actually develop more complex interactions using the Advanced Actions feature. This post is for users with a fair amount of experience in Captivate and it presumes Continue reading…
