Training: Advanced Actions for Dummies using Adobe Captivate 6

Topic: Advanced Actions for Dummies using Adobe Captivate 6

Description: Join Anita Horsley, Captivate Community Expert, to learn how to make eLearning more engaging using Advanced Actions in Adobe Captivate.

Ever wondered how to allow users to click on any button, in any order, before they can advance in the course? This could be the case if you have multiple lessons that jump to other slides and return to the Topics Menu each time or you may simply have multiple objects on one slide that the user must click on before advancing. The webinar will demonstrate simple step-by-step instructions on how to create and apply Conditional Advanced Actions in Adobe Captivate.

Training: “So, what were the right answers, anyway?” Using Advanced Actions and Variables for Quizzing

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.

SWF speaks to HTML page… through JavaScript!

Most of us, sometime or the other, have had a need to manipulate the HTML page that contains the Captivate SWF file. The requirement may have been to display a custom message or change an image in the HTML page on click of a button inside the SWF. This can be achieved by sending data to the HTML file through JavaScript. The possibilities of combining Captivate and JavaScript really excited me and thought of sharing a few examples with you through this post. To get a feel of what I’m talking about, click the buttons in the SWF below and see how the message text and banner image in HTML changes. Remember, the text and image are not part of the SWF…they are outside the SWF, on the HTML page.

Multiple Language Options in a Single Course with Adobe Captivate 5.5

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.

Here’s an example of Continue reading…

Show me the Progress Bar!

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.

So the good news is that Continue reading…
