Need Adobe Captivate experts for hire

I have received a comment from a reader:

Can you point me towards designers who are experts in Adobe Captivate 3? I want to hire someone to do a project for me.

If you are an expert interested in project opportunities, please submit a comment with your complete contact info, a link to your website, and a link to an Adobe Captivate example.

I get questions like this all the time but have answers limited to the consultants or service providers I personally know. And I know there are a lot more experts out there :)

Hi, I have been using Captivate since the RoboDemo days. I currently use version 2, but will be upgrading soon. My specialty is simple, quick marketing demos, but I also do elearning (all of thst work is internal so I can't show it here). Here are a few public examples of my work for Sun Life Financial.

Hi Silke - I work in education in Scotland, and have done a fair amount with Captivate. You can find my tutorials here at http://www.swict.com and I've also spent the last 12 months working with staff on creating and sharing curricular content for 5-11 year olds.

Silke, I have several contract editors with varying skill sets that I use, several of whom may have additional availability. I am not interested in acting as a third party in whatever dealings go on, but I can probably save your friend a lot of time in choosing the person with the right skills (and the right bill rate...)
Thanks,

I am a sole trader who has been using Captivate for 9 months. Previous to this I used Authorware for over 10 years and have been involved in multimedia/e-Learning for nearly 15 years. For the last 9 months I've worked solely on Captivate projects which have involved audio, 3d characters, system simulations and soft skills training. I create my own training windows/preloaders/buttons to give the training that individual look.

My prices are very cheap compared to larger training companies.

Is Captivate planning an upgrade this year? We are trying to see if we will want to add that to our budget for the next fiscal year that starts in June.

SF: We do not publish release dates but we typically release every 12-18 months. Also, we do offer upgrade plans which provide great savings - simply get it when you buy a new license of Adobe Captivate (it's available via our licensing program). Hope this helps.
