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.

Publishing a Software Simulation as One Project

Adobe Captivate

I would like to record a software simulation to include the demo, training and assessment. At present this creates the three captivate files. Ideally I would like to include a title slide, and introductory slide and a menu slide which can navigate to the different elements of the software simulation. Does anyone know how I can combine all the above into one Captivate project which I can combine and upload as one SCORM file to the LMS?

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.).
