Check out this new course on Adobe Captivate Drag and Drop Interactions with me on Lynda.com. This course dives into the drag-and-drop feature of Adobe Captivate 8, focusing on creating interactive elements that are interesting and fun. You will learn how to build your first interaction, turn interactions into questions and practice activities, apply effects, categorize one-to-many and many-to-one objects for easy assembly, and add feedback and advanced actions that will take your drag-and-drop interactions to the next level.
Lynda.com has announced an Essential Training course on Adobe Captivate 8 by Aaron Quigley. It’s a great course for beginners and intermediate users to explore the Captivate authoring workflow and capabilities, and learn how to use the new features introduced in Adobe Captivate 8. This course is also very useful for folks who want to get started with responsive eLearning course creation with Adobe Captivate 8.
Lynda.com has announced a new tutorial for Adobe Captivate 6 presented by David Rivers. It’s a great course for beginners and intermediate users to explore the Captivate authoring workflow and capabilities, and learn how to use the new features introduced in Adobe Captivate 6.
Here’s one of the movies from the course, where David explains how to apply themes to your eLearning courses in Captivate. The complete course is 3 hours and 49 minutes long and walks through the Captivate 6 interface and the process of building an eLearning project from start to finish.
Lynda.com launched Captivate 5 essentials training last month. I’ve always found Lynda.com training to be concise, easy to consume, and real value for money ($25/month). The course is created and delivered by James Lockman, an Adobe solutions engineer. James is an Adobe Certified Expert and has many years of experience teaching and training.
The course runs 7hrs and 11 mins. It contains 14 sections covering all the key features. Each section is made up of multiple modules of 5-6min duration, making it easy to consume. The course has a great introduction differentiating Captivate from other PowerPoint plugin based rapid authoring tools, and builds on the value of exploring eLearning beyond Presentations. The training has a good hands-on approach, allowing you to follow along using your Captivate version and the exercise files provided, to create some great content end-to-end. Each chapter builds on the content you created in the previous one.
James has done a good job of covering all the new features and the old favorites; though one area that is not covered in detail is advanced actions and variables. Also, some features like Multi Slide video could have a better usecase.
Overall, I believe this is a great source of Captivate 5 training for beginners and intermediate users.
