If you haven’t already caught the wind, Adobe Captivate Getting Started is a multimedia series of articles, tutorials, and instructional videos that put you on the path to accelerated Cp learning. The series includes:
100 short articles/tutorials that would help you get started with Adobe Captivate features
30+ videos and demonstration that explain the procedures to perform the tasks
Yup, we didn’t mistype those numbers — 100 and 30!
The Getting Started series is workflow-based. You, the user, are guided step-by-step to create and publish projects using Cp. The workflows are categorized as Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced, keeping in mind users at different skill levels.
For example, a Basic user is presented with a simple workflow with four quick steps to create a sample demo. An Advanced user begins a notch higher — learning how to design and set-up a video-publication process, and then creating final, professional-quality video output.
Wondering where to begin? Use the table below to determine your existing expertise level and jump right in.
Create storyboards and standardize the look and feel for your projects using templates. Create standard styles for objects that you use in your projects.
Set up the content development environment by customizing the workspace. Specify the preferences for your projects, such as the publishing location, reporting options for quiz results, and default recording settings.
With version 9, we are taking RoboHelp and RoboHelp Server to the next level by helping our customers incorporate important industry trends taking place today into their TechComm workflows. Trends such as user-generated content, community-based user assistance, Rich Internet Applications, content personalization, single-sourcing, multidevice publishing, rich media, the Cloud and many others.

In 2010, I contributed a tutorial article on designing interactive PDF forms using Adobe Acrobat/LiveCycle Designer to the IEEE Professional Communication Society Newsletter. Later, STC’s Intercom published a version of this article revised for Acrobat X.
