In an ideal world, your Captivate projects would be kept to a respectable number of slides (fewer than approximately 100). Larger projects will take longer to produce, longer to publish, longer for learners to download and, most importantly, longer to complete. I suggest creating lessons that a learner can finish within five minutes, which typically translates to around 80-100 interactive slides. Choose File > New Project > Aggregator Project.

These can then be deployed as a simple web offering or as a SCORM object, although in many cases you'll want to integrate the activity into a larger piece of work you are creating in another authoring tool - they provide instructions for Articulate Presenter , eXe and CourseGenie , although I'm sure it can be made to work in many other tools too - perhaps event the Rocket Course Builder :-). Rapid development tools are by definition going to adopt a position towards the 'easy-to-use' end of the scale, even though this usually means compromising on functionality. It has a game-like feel.

I would have no hesitation for reaching for one of these tools if I was working on a project alone.
