International audiences have been on our minds a lot recently. In addition to the recent update of over 20,000 new international cutout people to the Asset Store, we’ve taken an interest in the geolocation features of Captivate 9 for our templates.

As you may have noticed, we spent some time this last weekend upgrading the Assets portal for Adobe Captivate 9! We’ve included a few new features that will help you to find the templates and assets you’re looking for quicker and download them even faster than before.
The biggest part of our changes comes to the Cutout People section. We’ve spent a lot of time updating the keywords and categories so you’ll having an easier time finding the exact pose you’ll need. We have categories for gender, pose, ethnicity, industry, and more! Just use the new dropdown menu search feature to help refine your search. Select and deselect each of the different keywords and it automatically updates your results to reflect the change. Finding the right cutouts has never been easier! Continue reading…

We’ve just released four new templates into the Captivate 9 Assets library. These interactions are branching scenarios that are themed around the many ways we communicate: mail, computers, tablets, and phones. The included assets come with over 70 total scenario interactions that will help your learners to distinguish good decisions from bad ones.
