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.
First introduced with Captivate 8, geolocation support provided an opportunity to use a learner’s location as a trigger for specific events within your course. This means that you could use a location to determine the educational content that a user sees, the look and feel of the course they are in, and even the correct answers and feedback in an interaction. Using geolocation gives you an added measure of customization to your eLearning, and we really wanted to try to highlight some of this with these two new templates. Continue reading…

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…

Gone 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.

Captivate 9 was released just in time for my latest project – a series of courses that require a combination of scenarios and software simulations. I’ve been using Captivate for more years than I am willing to admit (RoboDemo anyone?); every new version has given me reason to celebrate and this one is no exception. These are my top eight favorite new/improved features.
This is probably my favorite new feature – an iPad storyboard app. I tend to storyboard old school – on paper. Then I have to transfer that to Word or PPT, which just creates an extra step. Captivate Draft allows me to capture my ideas and translate them into a storyboard. Whether it is a basic rough sketch or a richer version complete with images and quiz questions – I can easily upload them right into Captivate – eliminating a step or more Continue reading…
