Is your eLearning Racing in Circles?

I’ve been thinking a lot this week about the nature of business, eLearning and the deceptive influence of speed. Riddle me this…

One man starts at the beginning and drives 200 miles at 200 miles per hour and when he stops at his destination he exits the vehicle to find he’s arrived at exactly the same location as he left.At the same time a woman starts Continue reading…

Embedding Adobe Captivate Recordings in PowerPoint Presentations

We always talk about converting PowerPoint presentations to Adobe Captivate projects for all the valid reasons of creating rich and engaging experience for the learners, rapid authoring, easy conversion to eLearning courseware, etc.

But what if I want to conduct a classroom/virtual session, where I’ll be predominantly using a PowerPoint presentation and need to show a demonstration for one of the topics/sub-topics to the attendees. I don’t like to go away from my slideshow view and open another application to show them the demo… I want it all on my slideshow!

If you think like me and are looking for an answer to this… You are at the right place! :) Continue reading…

Add Video to Table Of Contents in Adobe Captivate (PPT) eLearning Modules

So I’ve recorded this short Continue reading…

Captivate Screen Capture on a PowerPoint inside another Captivate Project

I wanted to vlog you guys another video this week since there’s no eSeminar scheduled and I’m out of the office at a conference. This fun little tidbit is in response to one of the more common questions I get from Adobe Captivate users. The question? Now that Presenter (doesn’t matter which Presenter) doesn’t support embedded Adobe Captivate 5 files (because Presenter hasn’t been updated to AS3) how can I embed Captivate Video Captures, Application Captures, Application Simulations etc. onto my PowerPoints? My answer is generally … You know there is an easier way?

This 5 minute video demonstrates the easier Path. A lot of users don’t realize a.) how very simple it is to use PowerPoint files inside Adobe Captivate 5, and b.) how simple it is to embed Continue reading…

Collaborative authoring using Captivate and PowerPoint

A lot of legacy learning content is in PowerPoint format and it is natural that e-learning course authors want to leverage or re-use this content. The earlier versions of Captivate allowed users to import their PowerPoint content into their Captivate projects. Now Captivate 4 goes much further- Cp4 now supports full round-tripping with the PowerPoint content.
It supports collaborative authoring with the SME’s who use PowerPoint. Detailed below are some key aspects of this powerful feature:

- You can import PowerPoint slides to Captivate, and then enhance these slides by adding audio, animations, video or other Captivate objects to each of the slides. In the meantime your co-author can keep editing the slides using MS PowerPoint. You can synch your Captivate project with the latest version of the PowerPoint slide deck using the ‘update’ feature (Window > Library and select the presentation, right-clik and do “update”) . The Captivate objects which you added earlier on-top of the initial version of the PowerPoint slides remain intact (while Captivate updates to the changes your co-author made using PowerPoint). The workflow becomes even more powerful if you keep this PowerPoint file in a shared location, eliminating the need of sending back the file to Captivate user.

- Note that this feature works for both .ppt and .pptx files. This is being clarified here as I saw many articles describing this as possible only in PowerPoint 2007 (.pptx) files. .ppt and .pptx are handled in the same manner in Captivate 4.

- These posts give some more insight into the feature: PowerPoint Linked vs Embedded Import, Best practices for handling PowerPoint audio in Captivate, Correct dimensions for Power Point Import, PowerPoint On-Click Animations

- Captivate help is also a good resource for the feature.

- This tutorial gives a lot of details.
