Creating eLearning Scripts for Software Simulations

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

We are proud to announce a new class: Creating eLearning Scripts for Software Simulations. If you create eLearning that includes software simulations and video demonstrations, you've likely heard about the need for a recording script. If you create software simulations or video demonstration eLearning in Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline, or TechSmith Camtasia, this class is for you

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.

Software simulation Issue

Adobe Captivate

I am working on a new software simulation. I have done over twenty of these in an older version of Captivate with no issues. Just received a new computer with the updated version of captivate and for some reason the simulation only shows the first and last slide i do with nothing in the middle. I have two monitors and set the simulation to record the application window. The post Software simulation Issue appeared first on eLearning.

Webinar: How to Create Software Simulation Training in Storyline

eLearning Brothers

I am sure that many of you have been asked numerous times to create a course or courses teaching folks how to use a piece of software. So, last Thursday I led a webinar in which I went over how to create software simulation training in Storyline 2. In it’s function, it’s more like TechSmith’s Camtasia rather than Adobe’s Captivate product. There were also several questions about Captivate vs Storyline in regards to Software Simulation creation.

Workflow for Software Simulations

Adobe Captivate

Hi all, I’ve been working on my software capture skills and realized there’s a better way to set yourself up when you come to publish. Scenario: You want to create a demo and training simulation. Conventional Captivate workflow will have you create two separate files. My solution: create only a training sim, then insert a software demo inside the training file ( add a video demo slide before the training slides).

Create software simulations

Adobe Captivate

The procedures in this document require you to use assets such as images and sample Captivate project files. Create software simulations projects. Captivate allows you to simultaneously create software simulations in all the three available modes: Demo : Demostrate a software procedure. Training : Guide a user through a software procedure. We will simultaneously create the simulations in the three available modes. Assets and samples.

Software Simulation Part 1 & 2

Adobe Captivate

In this first part of a two part video tutorial, I cover the procedures for recording your software simulation. Run Captivate as an administrator – I generally run Captivate as an administrator anyway but this is one of those functions that really demands it. Run the application to be captured from your primary display – When I’ve tried to record applications on my second monitor, Captivate fails to capture all the screen shots and mouse movements.

Software simulation not recording right click action

Adobe Captivate

Hi there, I’m creating software simulations and I’m completely frustrated at how Captivate simulation is not capturing/recording right click actions and the context menu. I’ve done more than 10 software simulations without having any problem with capturing right click actions and context menus. I don’t know what happened overnight but now Captivate could no longer record right clicks and context menu.

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.

Making a Game Out of Software Simulations

Integrated Learnings

I recently worked on a lengthy course that included a lot of software training. The intent of the training was not only to introduce learners to the software, but also to build fluency with several key tasks. To make it fun, we combined a handful of simulations into a web-based game. The game starts with a playful, fictional backstory, which provides a reason for needing to complete the selected tasks in the software quickly and accurately. By Shelley A. Gable.

???? #eLearning #LIVESTREAM – Captivate Software Simulation – 07/31/2017, 16:00 EDT

Adobe Captivate

In this Live Stream, I will be covering some of the key things about Software Simulation that I have learned over the years. My hope is that if you don’t already use this foundational feature of Adobe Captivate, you will essentially have added a new tool to your eLearning toolbelt. If you have used it but don’t fully understand it, you will begin to see the power of this functionality in Captivate.

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?

Can Captivate 9 Save Adobe?

LearnDash

Specifically, they released their learning management system and Adobe Captivate 9. Perhaps the more exciting news though is the release of Adobe Captivate 9. I have a confession to make: I have a love/hate relationship with Adobe Captivate. Our relationship goes back a long way too as I can recall the days of using Captivate when it was owned by Macromedia. Adobe took over Captivate around version 3 or 4 (I cannot recall which one exactly). adobe captivate

Update on Software Simulations Tools

Tony Karrer

I'm never sure what updates people will see, but I wanted to alert people that I've made a small update to my page: Software Simulation eLearning (w/ links to Tools) The update primarily added some data from the eLearningGuilds Research at the bottom of the page - eLearning Tools Satisfaction. This shows satisfaction among tools that fall into categories related to software simulation: screen capture, electronic performance support (EPSS) and simulation.
