New geolocation enabled scenario and interaction templates added to Adobe Captivate assets

Guest Blog by: Thomas Reyes-Cairo, Community Manager at eLearning Brothers

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…

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.

Adobe Captivate 9 Review

Guest Blog by: Dr. Nancy Reyes, Learning Strategist at OnPoint Digital, Inc.

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.

Captivate Draft

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…

Training: Optimal Design For Multiple Devices using Adobe Captivate

Topic: Optimal Design For Multiple Devices using Adobe Captivate

Date and time: Thursday, July 10, 2014 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM US/Pacific

Description: In 2013, the sale of smartphones exceeded the sale of traditional phones while the sale of tablets exceeded those of standard PCs. This trend has lead to more clients who want online courses that can be accessed from both mobile and desktop devices. Because the technology is different, developing courses for both devices have unique attributes. The dilemma is – do we develop two separate courses that contain the same material but are published on different devices? Who wants to update the same course twice? So the approach then, is to craft a single course that provides optimal viewing and an effective learning experience across a wide range of devices. Anita Horsley and Karen Blades will present how to develop eLearning/mLearning course that have a professional look and feel, and provide an effective learning environment for students. This presentation is geared toward designers and non-designers alike to improve learning objectives using successful design techniques when publishing to both mobile and desktop devices.
