My First ‘Captivating’ Blog!

Guest Blog by: David Dunbar, Seasoned Educational Professional at Mochrum E-Learning Development

When trying to think of how to begin my first ever ‘official’ blog, I thought about trying to make some profound or controversial statement, to provoke a response amongst the Captivate community! However, when it comes to Education, it would be difficult to say something very new or different, as teaching and learning affects absolutely every single person, in the whole wide world!

From nurseries, to adult education, kindergartens to IT courses for the elderly, we all learn, and are taught, which makes the job of the educational technologist difficult yet exciting, puzzling yet challenging, all in equal measure!

Therefore, rather than beginning my very first Captivate blog with a profound or controversial question, intended to make an impact, I offer a small but perfectly formed conundrum -

How can Captivate be used by educationists to cope with the puzzling, challenging, fun and infuriating world of education today? Continue reading…

Announcing Adobe Presenter 8 with new support for 64-bit MS PowerPoint.

You are no longer forced to use the 32-bit version of MS Office, just because you want to create PowerPoint based eLearning. The new 64-bit Presenter 8 now works with your 64-bit MS PowerPoint.

How do you find out if you have 32-bit or 64-bit of MS-Office? It’s very simple, open MS PowerPoint and go to File> ‘About Microsoft PowerPoint’> … it would show you if it is 32-bit or 64-bit.

Do remember, there are separate installers for 32-bit and 64-bit version of Adobe Presenter. So, when you are downloading the installer, make sure you select the correct one.

Download the Adobe Presenter 8 64-bit version here.

How do I get my LMS validated with Adobe Captivate?

SCORM and AICC compliance of Captivate has been validated for a set of LMSs. We would be happy to add more LMSs to this list.

  • If you are a Captivate user deploying courses on LMS and are interested in seeing your LMS in this list, ask your LMS vendor to get in touch with us at CaptivateLMSSupport@adobe.com.
  • If you are an LMS vendor and want to get your LMS added to this list, you can get started with the validation program by performing the following steps:-

1. Download the sample SCORM and AICC courses:

Download Basic package

Download Advanced package

2. Unzip the package and open TestCaseDetails.xls

3. Run the test cases listed in the excel sheet. Run all or specific test cases based on the type of SCORM support on your LMS. For example, if SCORM 2004 is not supported on your LMS then execute only SCORM 1.2 testcases on your LMS.

4. Verify all the test cases and add actual results in the excel sheet.

5. Send the report to CaptivateLMSSupport@adobe.com

6. Once you complete the testing, please provide the results in the same excel sheet and create a test account for Captivate team to do a sanity test.

We will check the report and get back to you if we find any exception.  If the results are satisfactory, we will add your LMS in the list of validated LMSs.

Guest Blog by: Sara Carpenter, President and Founder at Qurve Learning.

At Qurve Learning, we create e-learning programs that help patients prepare for medical procedures. Our programs are fully narrated and use photos, illustrations, animation, and video to make health information easy to understand and follow.

We’ve used Adobe’s E-Learning Suite since it was first released a few years ago and have upgraded regularly. We recently took Captivate 6 for a test spin and am pleased with the new enhancements. Here are few of our favorite features:

Post 1: 7 techniques for using characters to liven up your eLearning

Guest Blog by: Bryan Jones, author of the Assets eLearning Blog and President of eLearningArt.com, a stock photo site for the eLearning industry.

How most people use characters

One thing I notice when hosting workshops is that the first time users try to insert character images, the end product looks about the same for all users: they use the character as an avatar and the full character (head to toe) is in the viewable area. Continue reading…

No More Excuses to Boring Presentation-like eLearning Courses!

When we use PowerPoint as an authoring environment, we end up making our courses look like presentations, as the default slide designs and layouts we have at our disposal are very few. Moreover these layouts are specifically designed for presentations and not for creating eLearning content. But not anymore!

With the all new Adobe Presenter 8, you have the freedom to choose a perfect layout that exactly matches your eLearning content type. You can seamlessly use these layouts with scenes, characters, images, and animations to bring your eLearning courses to life. These layouts are specially designed to be used for eLearning courses and adapt neatly with the design theme you have used to create your Adobe Presenter course.

Exciting, isn’t it? Continue reading…

Enjoy the Adobe Presenter Appiness!

The Appiness is here and it’s here to stay! And we are proud to present the Adobe Presenter Mobile App to access your Adobe Presenter 8 courses on tablet devices. Exciting, isn’t it? :)

What’s even more exiting is that you do not have to create two separate courses for Desktop and device consumption. Just publish your course as a SWF and the same course works beautifully on both your iPad and Desktop. You can also track your AICC compliant and Connect courses when accessing them on the iPad. Can’t believe? Even I couldn’t believe it, when I first heard it from the engineers, so I gave it a spin and here are the steps I followed to create and view the course on iPad.

I created a short course on Hospital Hygiene with Continue reading…
