eLearning Brothers

In this blog, we’re going to address how to take the small modules of microlearning you’ve created and combine them into one amazing over-arching course using the tools provided in Captivate. NOTE: For the sake of consistency and ease, I’m going to use Captivate 2017 as my platform, but the concepts I’ll be discussing have been around for many previous versions of Captivate and the methods haven’t changed much.

Reflections on Captivate 2017

Adobe Captivate

About two weeks ago Captivate 10, now labeled Captivate 2017 was released. When using the Submit All feature for a quiz, up till now it was not possible to localize this popup dialog box (style can be changed using the Object Style Manager): In Captivate 2017, the dialog box whidh appears when you click the option ‘Submit All Messages in Quiz, Preferences has all you need to localize everything. In previous versions this dialog box had only 3 items.

InfoSemantics used to have a SWF widget (EventHandler), worked great, but with the EOL of Flash player for all browsers, not so useful anymore. The post Importance of Captivate’s Events? Intro.
