The Assessment recording mode in Adobe Captivate creates a step-by-step software simulation that is intended to function as a test. It is part of the three-part formal software lesson: Demo, then Training (practice), then Assessment (test).   The reason you get 100% every time is that by default, each click box in the Assessment simulation is set to Infinite Attempts. Repeat for each click box in the Assessment simulation. by Jennie Ruby, CTT, COTP.

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.

Questions about Instructional Design Careers

Experiencing eLearning

Last month, a reader named Jackie asked me a number of thoughtful questions about transitioning from teaching K-12 public school to instructional design. I have altered a few details to make this more applicable to a general audience, although some questions and answers specifically mention the transition from teaching to ID. I don’t find developing software simulations to be particularly rewarding, for example, because there often isn’t a ton of creativity.

5 Best Tools to Quickly Convert ILT Material to E-learning

CommLab India

When converting your ILT material to e-learning, you consider various aspects such as the format of the training material (micro module or video), the platform on which it will be delivered, whether to build it in-house or outsource, the duration of the course, and the authoring tool to be used. However, with many authoring tools available in the market today, picking the tool that suits your requirements can be a challenging task.

Nine Training Alternatives to ‘Correct’ and ‘Incorrect’

In fact, many authoring tools come with these vacuous statements as their default response. In simulations and virtual worlds, learners are given a chance to explore, manipulate and practice so they can learn in a safe environment. In a reasonably accurate simulation, feedback occurs naturally as the result of an action. For example, in a driving simulation, turning a simulated steering wheel to the right appears to turn the car to the right.
