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.

Leaner yet fitter Software Simulation workflows in Adobe Captivate 5!

This includes each page, characters, animation, and interactive elements with the exception of the software simulations (sims) and the final assessment/quiz. Adobe Captivate - The course will contain many "try me" sims for a software upgrade in which we are implementing.

Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

To focus more on rapidly authored eLearning content, I am excluding the screen recording tools which are mainly used for software simulation type of courses. While working on rapid authored courses (courses authored using rapid authoring tools), I often encounter the decision point of whether to use freeform rapid authoring tools or the traditional template-based tools. Both have their own pros and cons. In this post, I attempt to discuss more on these.

Product Review: Mzinga OmniSocial

eLearning 24-7

Software simulation tool (Firefly) and Mzinga Publisher are extra, i.e. there is an additional cost – it is not automatically included in the OmniSocial product. If you are in the market, then visit Mzinga OmniSocial, because it is the Super Software Learning Platform. I’m on my way to get a car that enables me to launch a robust social learning system.

How to Create a "Zoom and Pan" effect in Powerpoint for eLearning

I am working on a software training project developed with Articulate where the eLearning course transitions from a branching scenario into a software simulation and I wanted to create a smooth transition from the scenario into the simulation.

Best of Both Worlds: Integrating Adobe Captivate and Articulate Presenter

eLearning Blender

While Captivate is great for software simulations, I think Articulate is better for soft skills projects and tying the whole thing together. For example, I'm currently working on a project where branching scenarios lead into software simulations. I wanted to use Articulate presenter for the branching scenario but I also wanted to use Adobe Captivate for the software simulations.

First Look: Adobe Captivate 5 by Joe Ganci

Learning Solutions Magazine

Many think of Captivate as a software simulation tool, and it does do this very well, with new features and improvements added over the years. However, Captivate is also a very effective tool for creating soft-skill simulations, quizzes, and other types of e-Learning applications. But wait, there’s more! Read this review to see what they’ve added to make your life easier.

Brandon Winston: One of the ones … it is kind of a follow-on for a safe place to fail, software simulation. You can build a software simulator that really not only trains them in the right way to it but lets them know, but lets them know, “Hey, if you click that button it would’ve deleted all of this information, so always click this one.” ” So I love software simulation and the repeatability of that.
