The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Jennie Ruby    Adobe Presenter and Adobe Captivate have some overlapping functions. You can use it to take existing PowerPoint slides, add voiceover narration, optionally record a self-video while presenting the lesson, add eLearning scenes and characters, add interactive elements, add a quiz, and publish the lesson to an LMS.

But I wanted a tighter relationship between the video and the Excel software simulation lesson. That is actually a screenshot of an Excel software simulation created in Adobe Captivate. And Captivate takes over.

E-learning Development Software that Add Zing to Simulations

CommLab India

To overcome this problem, corporate training has turned to simulations which help the learner experiment in situations that are as close to real life as possible. Simulations support the idea of learning by doing. E-learning has also adopted the idea of simulations and there are authoring tools that can add a punch to different kinds of training. Software-based simulations for IT training. Technical simulations for process training. Adobe Captivate.

If an authoring tool offers video editing capabilities, you as an instructional designer, don’t have to look for additional video software. Typically a screencast (another name for screen recording) is made using an installed piece of software on the computer, but here, you use your authoring tool to do the same.When using an authoring tool for screencasting, you can often record both audio and the screen.
