I know – that doesn’t sound all that glamorous at first pass, but I want you to think about it for a second… Continue reading…

Random Feedback in Adobe Captivate

Guest Blog by: Phil Cowcill, Senior eLearning Specialist at Department of National Defence

As most professional eLearning developers know, the user’s experience is very important to the learning process. It’s often what makes a good course a great course. It does take a little extra effort in order to make the experience better, but it is often well worth the effort.

One thing that learners get tired of is repetitive feedback. Even if you add qualitative feedback, wouldn’t it be nice if the first part of the feedback is automatically generated. This blog will step you through the process of creating random feedback for both the correct and incorrect answer.

The Power of Multi-State Objects in Adobe Captivate 9

Multi-state ObjectsGone are the days when you had to use multiple objects and advanced actions to depict changing the state of an object in Adobe Captivate.

Here comes Adobe Captivate 9, with the power of multi-state objects. You can now convert any interactive or non-interactive object to a multi-state object. This will immensely help you in developing interactive content easily without using multiple objects, or “hide and show” techniques in a single project or slide.

You can add any number of custom states to both interactive and non-interactive objects. And for the interactive objects, you can also configure inbuilt states like normal, rollover, and down states for buttons; and dragstart, dragover, dropcorrect, dropincorrect, etc. inbuilt states for objects in drag and drop interactions, which are automatically triggered with the object actions.
