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: Make Your Software Simulations Scorable

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

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.

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. On your computer, start the recording process using Captivate or Storyline.

If you intend to create an eLearning course, it’s a good bet that you’re going to start the development process in Microsoft PowerPoint. However, PowerPoint is missing some key eLearning features to allow you to output finished eLearning content. For instance, PowerPoint cannot create software simulations or video demos. While in those tools, you’ll add the necessary eLearning features and then publish your content.

Adobe Captivate or Adobe Presenter: Which One Is Right For You?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Jennie Ruby    Adobe Presenter and Adobe Captivate have some overlapping functions. Both can create eLearning lessons that can be uploaded to and report results to a learning management system (LMS). It is the easiest path from PowerPoint to eLearning.   Presenter is designed so that eLearning features are easy to add. But, as is typical with any kind of software, the easier the software is to use, the fewer choices you have about certain things.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE & GOANIMATE: Sharing Voices Is Quick and Easy

GOANIMATE: Character-Based eLearning Made Easy

One of the hottest new tools for eLearning development is GoAnimate.   I’ve been working more and more on ways to integrate GoAnimate with more traditional eLearning lessons and content.     Now, it’s one thing to simply embed a video into an Adobe Captivate slide as a stand-alone, and then go on with a standard Captivate lesson in the next segment. That is actually a screenshot of an Excel software simulation created in Adobe Captivate.

by Kevin Siegel      Adding voiceover audio to eLearning enhances the learner experience. I've been creating eLearning for years (and years and years). If you're creating a software demonstration or interactive simulation, should the audio be recorded while you're recording the screen actions? I was trying to create quick video demos to share with fellow eLearning developers. What tools do you use for audio?

I've been using Adobe Captivate for a while now and I am very happy with it for technical training projects but I can't help but wonder if other tools like Articulate may be a great addition to my toolbox. Since I already have Captivate, I need to determine whether it would be worth the investment to purchase new software when I may be able to get along just as well with what I already have. Hoping a different tool might be able to handle this better.
