Webinar: How to Create Software Simulation Training in Storyline

eLearning Brothers

I am sure that many of you have been asked numerous times to create a course or courses teaching folks how to use a piece of software. So, last Thursday I led a webinar in which I went over how to create software simulation training in Storyline 2. There were also several questions about Captivate vs Storyline in regards to Software Simulation creation. A: No.

Software Simulations – Learning benefits

CommLab India

Are you sure they have enough training on the new software to operate it flawlessly? Did the training course include simulations? Let me tell you about the benefits of simulations in software training so that you can have an informed discussion with your training partner. The traditional approach to software training focuses on explaining the working of the software.

Making a Game Out of Software Simulations

Integrated Learnings

I recently worked on a lengthy course that included a lot of software training. The intent of the training was not only to introduce learners to the software, but also to build fluency with several key tasks. To make it fun, we combined a handful of simulations into a web-based game. The game starts with a playful, fictional backstory, which provides a reason for needing to complete the selected tasks in the software quickly and accurately. By Shelley A. Gable. Of course, building fluency requires practice. Here are some of the elements we designed into the game….

Update on Software Simulations Tools

Tony Karrer

I'm never sure what updates people will see, but I wanted to alert people that I've made a small update to my page: Software Simulation eLearning (w/ links to Tools) The update primarily added some data from the eLearningGuilds Research at the bottom of the page - eLearning Tools Satisfaction. This shows satisfaction among tools that fall into categories related to software simulation: screen capture, electronic performance support (EPSS) and simulation.

eLearning: It's Time for Some Reflection

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel      I was recently contacted by a client who wanted me to create software simulations of mobile apps. At first I thought he wanted me to create software simulations that could be accessed and used by mobile devices. I'm betting you're wondering if there's an easier way to capture software simulations of mobile apps.

Rapid eLearning Through Software Simulations And Screencasts

Upside Learning

Previously when I discussed freeform and template-based rapid content authoring tools, I kept software simulation tools aside. The main reason was that such simulation tools are not always used for developing just any type of learning but focused on training content creation for a specific software application or system. The software simulation in turn, can be divided into screen capturing tools and interactive simulation development tools. However, it’s matter of debate that whether software simulations can be considered as part of EPSS.

Adobe Captivate: Use Smart Shapes Instead of Text Captions

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

As it stands, standard text captions are used whenever you record a software simulation or enable feedback captions for interactive objects (you can use Hint, Success, and Failure captions for Click Boxes, Buttons, and Text Entry Boxes).   When you record your next Software Simulation, the standard Text Captions will automatically be replaced with Smart Shapes.

eLearning: More Reflection

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel      Last week I wrote about how you can use  Reflector to create software simulations and demonstrations  from your mobile device. I received emails from several people who, having read the article, downloaded Reflector and attempted to create a simulation using Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline. Continue this process over and over until you have completed all of the processes you wish to simulate on the mobile device. Instead, you can simply see what's happening on the mobile device through your computer.

eLearning: When Should You Record Your Voiceover Audio?

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

If you're creating a software demonstration or interactive simulation, should the audio be recorded while you're recording the screen actions?   So what about interactive software simulations or soft-skills learning? Since simulations or soft skills lessons are typically produced slide-by-slide (in Captivate, Storyline, PowerPoint, or Presenter), I think it's best to record or import the audio directly onto the slide once the slide is done. I've been creating eLearning for years (and years and years). wait for it.  more informal.

Adobe Captivate 6: The Theme for Today is Consistency!

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel    If you are creating a soft skills eLearning lesson (a lesson teaching a life skill such as conflict resolution instead of a software simulation), the appearance of each individual slide is critical. If you are creating a software simulation, the background is typically the application being simulated so that's one less thing you have to worry about.

What You Need to Know About Software Training

Association eLearning

It’s no surprise that software training is often delivered as eLearning. But software training and its associated screen caps also present some unique challenges and considerations, as well as opportunities. Inadequate or poorly designed software training can be very frustrating for learners. Software updates frequently, so training and screen caps may become outdated quickly.
