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.

Step-by-Step Guide for Creating Software Simulations Using Adobe Captivate

CommLab India

Are you finding it difficult to develop applications that teach the use of software effectively and in a timely manner? Or are you trying to develop your own software training? Then, you can develop software simulations that engage your learners with Adobe Captivate easily. This blog is a step-by-step guide for developing software simulations using Adobe Captivate. In the Demo mode, Captivate adds text captions using labels.

Captivate’s Quizzes (1): Terminology

Adobe Captivate

Since 2008 I have been blogging regularly about Captivate. It is the reason why I consider Quizzes as one of the three main topics for any Newbie in ‘ Three Skills to Acquire ‘ Since 2011 quite a lot has changed in Captivate, although the basic design of quizzes is still the same. 10p score, no penalty. Only one type has the possibility for partial scoring: MCQ with multiple correct answers. This new type was introduced with Captivate 9.

Developer's Perspective of Adobe Captivate 6

Integrated Learnings

Developers, like me, get excited for new releases of software. Now that I've taken a look at the new release of Adobe Captivate I find myself only somewhat excited about making the upgrade from the previous version. Overall, Captivate 6 is still the same Captivate you know (and hopefully love). Captivate 6 is continuing to improve its PowerPoint capabilities. Captivate 6 allows for non-graded quizzes as well as branching and partial scoring.

Using Text Entry Boxes: Basics

Adobe Captivate

A score attached to the objet (default = 1pt) can be added to the total quiz score. It is one of the two interactive objects that will be automatically inserted when creating a software simultaion in Training or Assessment mode (the other object is the click box), whenever the learner is required to fill in a field. In Captivate tthe only other ways to allow learners to put in text is by using the Notes or the Scrolling Text Interactions. Intro.

Three skills to acquire (Captivate newbies)

Seven years ago I started blogging about Captivate (with version 4 – 5). Meanwhile I also have spent thousands of hours on the Captivate forums, answering questions ans solving issues. Moreover I am busy as a Consultant and a Trainer (for Captivate and other Adobe applications), both in live and online classes. You got that Captivate license, but how to start, where to go?

eLearning: Playbar or No Playbar? Let the Debate Begin

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      I was teaching  Adobe Captivate  recently when a student asked a few questions about the value of a playbar that fueled an interesting and heated, discussion (some folks love playbars, others hate them). All of the top eLearning development tools (Articulate Storyline, Articulate Presenter, Adobe Captivate, Adobe Presenter, and TechSmith Camtasia Studio) allow you to control the appearance of the playbar.

Storyline, Captivate, Lectora – An Evaluation Checklist of 3 Rapid Authoring Tools

CommLab India

The eLearning Guild has come out with a report that lists the most desired features in rapid e-learning authoring software. We will now evaluate the 3 widely used rapid authoring tools – Articulate Storyline 2 , Adobe Captivate 9 , and Lectora Inspire 16 , based on the features listed by the report. Adobe Captivate 9. Can show a review of the questions after scoring. Games, Scenarios, and Simulations. Can create simple software simulations.

Captivate and Articulate for Interactive Slide-Based Presentations

Tony Karrer

I got a question (and you know I love questions): We are being asked to use Adobe Captivate on a project. I understand that Captivate is great for simulations and demonstrations of computer tasks, and can be used for scenario-based training for that kind of content. However, this project doesn't involve ANY simulations, demonstrations, or scenario-based training. But, in this case, it's not simulation, it's interactive presentation.

All you have to know about Captivate timeline(s) in a cptx project

Adobe Captivate

Score slide timeline: identical setup as for question slides – pause is linked to the Continue button. FMR ( Full Motion Recording, created in a software simulation for mouse movements ) slides: red line in the center of the slide timeline. Captivate could have put all those ‘clips’ on one long timeline, but believe me, it is much easier to manage and edit objects on the shorter slide timelines and the learner will never know this. Intro.

Should I Edit Course and SCO Identifier and Title?

Adobe Captivate

Here’s attempt number two… Our team shares a cptx file that we use as a course “template” – it’s not a Captivate template file type, however. Any time we go to create a new course, we pull this common cptx from our controlled documents library, paste in our new slides, author the simulations, etc., We create solely software simulations.)

Interactivity in Software Tutorials?

Adobe Captivate

Whenever a comparison of eLearning authoring tools is published, Captivate still is considered to be the best tool for creation of software tutorials. That has been indeed the primary goal when Captivate was released many years ago. Maybe a blog, explaining why I am wondering about the use of Captivate for the creation of software tutorials, explaining the three possible workflows with growing level of interactivity can lead to some feedback anyway. Intro.

How to Make People Love Your eLearning

One of the activities was supposed to simulate a group brainstorming session. For the eLearning, we simulated the descriptions written by other users. But branched scenarios are a great way to simulate real life situations, if you have the time, budget, and the technical and subject matter expertise. We simulated several business trips and presented users with situations they would encounter in various societies, where the company had foreign offices. Simulations.

5 Useful JavaScripts I Commonly Use

This is for anyone interested in learning more about how to use JavaScript with Captivate. For example, if I had the variable ‘score’ that kept track of a users progress, I can control which comment to display with this variable. comments[score] // returns the comment at score’s value. Let’s say you are creating a software simulation and you want the ‘up arrow’ to change the state of an object.

Updated Comparison of E-Learning Authoring Tools

For that reason, many of its scores have not changed – it is still easier to use and has better graphics capabilities than the other tools in the grid, and it still has less power than the others – but that’s by design. Because of that, I’m going to put it ahead of Captivate, since Captivate still has a decent list of features that don’t work in HTML5. But I won’t give Captivate a 4. Software Simulations.

Use Guides for your Fluid Boxes Design!

Adobe Captivate

All the included themes in Captivate have Fluid Boxes on the master slides (the ‘virgin’ Blank theme has them only on the quiz/score masters). You’ll see a lot of informational stuff where every presenter starts always with a slide based on the Blank master slide because it is also ‘virgin’ Be careful when editing the Blank master slide, because it is needed for PPT-import and software simulation slides, edit only a duplicate). Intro.

Fluidize your Quizzes

Styling quiz/score slides is tough even in normal (blank) projects and turns into a nightmare when having to do it for up to 5 breakpoint views. This explains why I listed Quizzes as second most important stumbling block for Captivate users in this article. All quiz slides, and the score slide, are based on a dedicated Master slide. Intro.
