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.

GOANIMATE: Character-Based eLearning Made Easy

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

One of the hottest new tools for eLearning development is GoAnimate.   I’ve been working more and more on ways to integrate GoAnimate with more traditional eLearning lessons and content. 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.   e-learning eLearning GoAnimate

ADOBE CAPTIVATE & GOANIMATE: Sharing Voices Is Quick and Easy

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In an earlier article, I described how I created an eLearning lesson that has GoAnimate characters discussing some spreadsheet problems. At a certain point, the lesson zooms in on a character’s computer screen, and suddenly a software simulation starts in Adobe Captivate. At the end of the Captivate software simulation, you see the animated character again, still talking in that same voice. by Jennie Ruby, CTT, COTP.

TEACHING LIVE, ONLINE CLASSES: Engagement Is Not Enough

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

  And so we create interactive eLearning. In our classrooms we call students by name and discuss things with them face to face. In our online classrooms we have them click something, drag something, or move something every few moments.   In computer training—training that teaches people how to use software, websites, apps, or online forms—we have known since the 1980s that hands-on training is essential. by Jennie Ruby, COTP.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE: Why Are Smart Shapes So Smart? Let Me Count The (6) Ways

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

And even when a Smart Shape is not being used as button, you can create states for it and then program in events in your eLearning that cause the shape to change states. When setting up to record a software simulation, you can ask Captivate to generate Smart Shape captions instead of Text Captions—automatically. You know, SFH Captions—Success, Failure, and Hint captions that appear automatically when your viewers try to click through your eLearning lesson correctly.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE: Recording Screen Actions on a PC with a High-Density Screen

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

The net result is that you cannot record the screen, either in software simulation or in video demo recording mode. Even after all that, many developers report that while recording works, the Captivate software itself becomes so teeny-tiny that it's impossible to use.
