Introducing Adobe Captivate 6: Sensational eLearning Authoring

I love being part of a team. There are few things in life more rewarding than pulling together with a group of like-minded souls in order to accomplish a goal that everyone agrees is important and meaningful. At Adobe our mission is to change the world through digital experiences. In the eLearning team we are deeply committed to the serious work of creating positive change by enabling creativity, educational experiences and making that experience easy and productive. Today our team is thrilled to announce that Adobe Captivate 6 is now available.

Simply put, Adobe Captivate 6 is a sensational tool. Years of innovation, evolution and experience have led to an absolutely amazing tool capable of creating virtually any kind of eLearning content with incredible ease. The hallmarks of Adobe Captivate 6 are genuine, powerful and effortless mobile learning solutions, phenomenal digital video screencasting, and unbelievable out-of-the-box assets including awesome interactions that work in Flash and HTML5, a giant library of hundreds of Actors to add personalization to your projects and jaw-dropping themes that facilitate rapid development so well, you might just call it instant.


iPads and Mobile, Here we come!
The eLearning industry has been aching for a solution that will facilitate robust and reliable delivery of eLearning content to the latest mobile devices. Support for iPads, Tablets, and other mobile devices is just a click away through Adobe Captivate 6’s hot new publish to HTML5 output. Captivate 6 now publishes natively to HTML5 as well as the traditional Flash and other output options. Not only does it output for seamless iPad publishing via HTML5, it also exports MP4 video to facilitate impressive Just-In-Time training.

Just add Content
Have a look at the incredible Themes, Actors and Smart Learning Interactions in Adobe Captivate 6. These phenomenal out-of-the box solutions facilitate a shockingly fast workflow. Better yet, it’s Captivate, so they are all customizable and extensible. No need to stop with the wonderful stuff in the box, you can add your own cutout people, and create your own fully customizable themes to facilitate the branding and template styles that work best for your organization.

The eLearning World’s Favorite Application Simulation Tool Just Got A Serious Upgrade
There’s an incredible surprise waiting inside Adobe Captivate 6 for you. We’ve added High Definition, native video screen / application capture, and we’ve done it with the eLearning savvy you’ve come to expect from Captivate. Captivate has earned a place as industry leader for a long time in the Application Simulation arena, but we didn’t want to rest on any laurels. Why not give a completely awesome video only solution for screen recording? You asked for it, you got it. You won’t believe all the cool features. The mouse remains editable even after the video recording. Output to mp4 or YouTube is lightening fast. A crazy simple editor let’s you zoom and pan with fantastic ease and adding transitions is a breeze too.

The HTML5 contest has closed- 5 more days to put in your votes!

The Captivate HTML5 contest has closed for entries. The viewing gallery is still open to give you an opportunity to cast your vote. Thank you for participating in this contest. The general interest can be gauged from the fact that many of the top entries have close to 10,000 views and 1,500 FB ‘Likes’ each. If you’re yet to view some of the entries, please do take some time to appreciate the efforts of the community in pioneering HTML5 eLearning 
While many of the entries might not be appreciated for the ID skills, I’m sure the contest helped the community realize the possibilities (and current limitations) of HTML5 eLearning authoring. We had 35 entries in this contest, three of which will receive the iPad. Two of these will be determined based on popular vote, while the third will be awarded by an expert panel – for the best content as judged by them.
In the next few days the team here will also point out the entries they’ve liked. Two entries stood out for me- Continue reading…
