During my beginner Adobe Captivate class , I am often asked if it's possible to ensure that learners do not leave a Text Entry Box (TEB) blank.  While there is no setting in Captivate to ensure that a TEB isn't left blank, using a little variable and some advanced action magic can make it happen.  Got other Captivate challenges?  by Lori Smith.

Adobe Captivate: Preloaders

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel        I received an email last week from a Captivate developer who was concerned with how long it was taking for a published lesson to begin playing for his learners.
