Save Time and Increase Productivity through Advanced Interactions Panel!

When I work with large projects, one of the challenges I face is to debug the project when something is not working correctly. The things that can go wrong are incorrect navigation, incorrect association of actions, number of attempts in question slides, etc. In such cases, one thing that I wish for is a dialog that shows all the interactions in my project. And there comes the Advanced Interactions Panel… a real time saver!

Creating Spry Menus in Adobe Captivate 5.5 Courses

When we are working on a large course with many topics and sub-topics, it’s a good idea to include all the topics along with sub-topics on the menu page. But this can result into a content heavy screen and doesn’t give a neat look. In such a scenario we can add Spry Menu functionality on the menu page, where when you hover over the topic, the sub-topics appear and become accessible. Here’s an example screen with a Spry Menu. Hover over Menu A to see the hidden submenus.

Let’s see how we can create such a menu page. Continue reading…

Some of you might have noticed that when you record narration in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 via SlideShow > Record SlideShow > Start Recording from Beginning and import this PPTX in Adobe Captivate, the slide narration is not available in project’s library.

Solution to Captivate SCORM course freeze issue on some LMSs

When I try to take Captivate SCORM course on some Learning Management Systems (LMS) which support both SCORM and AICC, Captivate SCORM course freezes on load with “Loading…” screen and does not move forward. This is usually seen with only few LMSs which support both SCORM and AICC. When I look at the SCORM API calls to LMS, I don’t see Initialize API being called at all. When dug deeper, I found that Captivate course was loaded as SCORM course by LMS but course was trying to make AICC calls.  Continue reading…
