How to Record Software Simulation in Adobe Captivate 9

CommLab India

If you belong to an organization that is involved in developing software, you know how tough it is to create training that will teach your employees how to use software the optimal way. E-learning provides the ideal solution to this issue through “ Watch-Try-Do ” simulations. Simulations give learners an opportunity to “ watch ” and get familiar with the nits and grits of the software tool. How to record a software simulation in Adobe Captivate.

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.

Adobe Captivate: Kill the Click Sounds

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      I received an email from a new Captivate developer who was having a hate-hate relationship with the click sounds he was hearing in his Adobe Captivate demonstrations and simulations. In his simulations, the same click sound was heard every time the learner clicked a click box.  To disable the mouse click sound in a software demonstration, select the mouse pointer on any slide.

Adobe Captivate: Record Simulations Using Smart Shapes Instead of Text Captions

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel        Text Captions have been available in Adobe Captivate since before Captivate was Captivate (think RoboDemo). While there is much to love about Smart Shapes, a perceived downside to Smart Shapes is that you can't use them to automatically get captions when recording a Software Simulation. The next time you record a Software Simulation, the project will automatically contain Smart Shapes instead of Text Captions.

eLearning: Is Right-Clicking Right?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

If you're responsible for creating a software simulation that teaches a learner how to make Word text bold, which of the commands are you going to simulate? While you could simulate multiple options, I'd encourage you to focus on just one (adding multiple options is going to take you too long to produce). Personally, I'd simulate the menu option or the toolbar button. Showing a right-click in a software demonstration is fine, but not a simulation.).
