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). by Jennie Ruby, CTT, COTP.

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. Many of the eLearning developers that I’ve spoken with, however, weren’t aware that this functionality existed in Articulate Storyline.

eLearning Development: Articulate Versus Code

B Online Learning

In the eLearning world, it’s no secret that there’s a divide between people who build courses from scratch using HTML and JavaScript and people who use an authoring tool for the whole course creation. Here’s a snapshot comparison of the two development methods: . Code Development.

eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: How Much Time Does It Take to Create eLearning?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

One of the more common questions that I get from new eLearning developers is how much time does will take to produce published content. For instance, which eLearning tool are you going to use?   Here's another factor: how many minutes of eLearning playtime are you looking to produce? In my experience, it will take you approximately 2 hours of labor to produce 1 minute of eLearning playtime if you use Captivate or Storyline.

Top 10 features of Adobe Captivate 2017 for Responsive eLearning development

Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate 2017 offers powerful capabilities to create fully responsive eLearning courses. Additionally, I outline EI Design’s capability in pushing the envelope further on creating responsive eLearning courses through customisation on the tool. Adobe Stock – Free eLearning assets.

What Computer Should I Buy?

Adobe Captivate

I want my computer to be able to run well for at least three years of new versions and software updates, preferable though, I want it to last five years. If you do a lot of video demos and software simulation and the desktop you need to be capturing is a PC, this makes the decision easy.

Expectations From eLearning Authoring Tools

I came across this mind map by Cammy Bean which covers nearly all the tools available for creating/authoring eLearning content. Here are some features that eLearning professionals generally expect from authoring tools –.

GOANIMATE: Character-Based eLearning Made Easy

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.   e-learning eLearning GoAnimate

eLearning: More Reflection

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      Last week I wrote about how you can use  Reflector to create software simulations and demonstrations  from your mobile device. I received emails from several people who, having read the article, downloaded Reflector and attempted to create a simulation using Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline. Continue this process over and over until you have completed all of the processes you wish to simulate on the mobile device.

eLearning: It's Time for Some Reflection

by Kevin Siegel      I was recently contacted by a client who wanted me to create software simulations of mobile apps. At first I thought he wanted me to create software simulations that could be accessed and used by mobile devices.

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.

Rapid Authoring Tools For Creating mLearning

Upside Learning

There is still a lack of standardization across devices and amongst networks across geographical areas resulting in mlearning content development being somewhat constrained. Before beginning to develop mLearning on their own, they should keep in mind some technical considerations.

What You Need to Know About Software Training

It’s no surprise that software training is often delivered as eLearning. But software training and its associated screen caps also present some unique challenges and considerations, as well as opportunities.

eLearning: When Should You Record Your Voiceover Audio?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      Adding voiceover audio to eLearning enhances the learner experience. I've been creating eLearning for years (and years and years). If you're creating a software demonstration or interactive simulation, should the audio be recorded while you're recording the screen actions? I was trying to create quick video demos to share with fellow eLearning developers.

Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

To focus more on rapidly authored eLearning content, I am excluding the screen recording tools which are mainly used for software simulation type of courses. As the behavior and layout is pre-programmed for each template, it doesn’t require programming or designing skills to develop the course content. But such tools may not be suited for all types of eLearning courses as the fixed behavior templates may pose constraints on the instructional design and creativity.

New 1-Hour Live, Online Course: Microsoft PowerPoint to eLearning via Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, TechSmith Camtasia, or Presenter

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

If you intend to create an eLearning course, it’s a good bet that you’re going to start the development process in Microsoft PowerPoint. However, PowerPoint is missing some key eLearning features to allow you to output finished eLearning content. For instance, PowerPoint cannot create software simulations or video demos. While in those tools, you’ll add the necessary eLearning features and then publish your content.

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. Should you include a playbar in your eLearning lessons? If you've included a quiz in your lesson, most of the eLearning development tools require the learner to answer the question and submit before it is recorded and graded.

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.
