Today, Adobe announced Adobe Captivate 7, the newest version of our powerful eLearning authoring tool. Adobe is the leader in eLearning authoring and with this new release we’ve added more power to an already powerful tool. Captivate 7 offers more out-of-the-box power and functionality than previous versions so authors from corporate training professionals to educators can truly create eLearning content using one single tool without programming.
Foremost among its new features, Captivate 7 authors can now import PowerPoint project, including text, shapes, audio, and animations, into Adobe Captivate 7 and publish directly to HTML5. Captivate 7 also offers all the tools needed to create courses that meet accessibility standards. Further, authors can add more interactivity to courses with drag-and-drop modules, YouTube video streaming and in-course web browsing. They can record system audio along with narration, generate reusable advanced action templates and import GIFT format questions to create quizzes in a jiffy. Captivate 7 now also publishes to Tin Can-compliant LMSs.
In short, we’re providing eLearning authors everything they need to create eLearning content. But we do want to highlight some features that are especially cool.
- Drag-and-drop components
With Captivate 7 authors can make eLearning fun with drag and drop games, quizzes and learning modules that can run on desktops and iPads. They can choose from a variety of relationships on the basis of which the drop target can accept or reject or replace the drag items. And they can provide audio feedback in response to every attempt.
- HTML5 support for Microsoft PowerPoint
Now authors can import their PowerPoint projects, including text, shapes, audio, and animations, into Captivate 7 and publish them directly to HTML5.
- Enhanced accessibility support
This is especially important to those whose work impacts – or who want to expand their outreach to – defense, government and educational organizations. Captivate 7 easily creates simulations and demonstrations that address accessibility standards such as Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). Captivate 7 defines text equivalents, inserts clickable areas that allow keyboard access, and more to help ensure that everyone can access the content.
We think Captivate 7 will change how you create and implement new eLearning content. So whether you’re new to Captivate or a veteran eLearning author, check out Captivate 7 to see how it can change your training for the better.
