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.

Dynamic text for buttons… Drawing Shapes + Click boxes way!

It is very common to allow the users to navigate to a different screen if they would like to read more on a particular topic. When we create such screens, being smart in navigation and letting the learners know which screen they came from becomes very important. If the learner is clicking ‘Read more’ from Screen A and lands in Screen B, it becomes helpful for the users to know that they will go back to Screen A when they click on ‘Go to last slide visited’ button. Our Community Expert Lieve Weymeis has posted an answer at the Adobe Captivate Forum on how to solve this… Thanks Lieve :)

Check out the example to take a look at it…

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.

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.
