Let the image dance for your tunes… Image Slideshows with audio using Adobe Captivate 5.5

One of my favorite feature in Audio Editing dialog is, starting the next slide at a specific location at the audio waveform… just have to click ‘Select next slide at the cursor position’ button or simply press Ctrl+S or Cmd+S. Are you wondering what’s the fun? The fun begins when you want to play the pictures of an Image Slideshow according to the beats of an audio. What am I talking about? Watch the video below and see how the images change according to the music.

Keep Your Knowledge Check Questions Simple!

Imagine you are taking an eLearning course and bump into a knowledge check question. You read through the question stem and options and find it difficult to answer the question. Somehow you make a selection and get a feedback “Sorry, that’s incorrect! Try again.”

You don’t feel good about it as you can’t figure out what went wrong. You attempt to answer the question again but this time around you don’t even bother to read the options and click on any option randomly and keep repeating it till you get it correct.

Disheartening, isn’t it? Continue reading…

Creating a Screen with a Pop-up with Adobe Captivate 5.5

When designing a course screen, we sometimes come across a situation where we have some content which is related to the screen, but there’s no space on the screen to place it. This content is important and is in context with the current screen but is not worthy enough to take up the entire next screen. In such scenarios, screen with a pop-up comes to rescue!

Take a look at this screen…

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…

Found some difference in these situations? Continue reading…

Enabling Forced Navigation for Your Interactive Screens in Adobe Captivate 5.5

You have created an interactive screen that you are proud of. You show it to the customer.

The customer wants to make sure the learners view the content linked with each interactive object before moving on to the next screen.

As an eLearning professional, you don’t believe in forced navigation and have made the content interesting enough to engage the learners. But you need to implement the changes suggested by the customer.

Don’t you Continue reading…
