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. You can expand or condense the recording window based on your simulation requirement.

3 Rapid E-learning Development Tools

CommLab India

For years, Adobe Flash was the uncrowned king of e-learning development software. Flash fails to meet this requirement as it is incompatible with most of these mobile devices and modern browsers. Another disadvantage of Flash is that it takes a long time (several weeks and even months) to develop online courses. Without making it too complicated, I’ll only focus on their capabilities such as support for simulations , animations , audio/video , and mobile support.

Questions about Instructional Design Careers

Experiencing eLearning

I don’t find developing software simulations to be particularly rewarding, for example, because there often isn’t a ton of creativity. A: I wouldn’t learn Flash right now. The learning curve is too steep, and within a few years I think most work will be in HTML5. Most Flash e-learning now is done with rapid tools anyway. Usually if the Flash work requires a programmer, there’s a separate team for that.

We looked at each feature such as their ease of use, possibilities in animations, developing software training simulations, built-in interactivities and the ease of customizing them, flexibility of characters, recording and editing audios/videos, creating assessments, and publishing options. Easy-to-develop software simulations. Publishes to HTML5 and Android. Variables & triggers eliminate the need for programming knowledge. Flash-based mini games.

How to Pick the Best Authoring Tool to Convert Legacy E-Learning Courses

CommLab India

A legacy e-learning course refers to an online course developed using Flash, Dreamweaver, XML/HTML, JavaScript or earlier versions of rapid authoring tools. Converting a legacy course to the latest HTML5 can be a tricky process. In order to develop Flash-like interactivities, ensure the tool has the capability to develop attractive assessments, scenarios, and games. Most authoring tools in the market support responsive or HTML5 features.

Elearning Authoring Tools: Comparison of 7 Major Authoring Tools

gomo learning

Launched in 2014, Gomo was one of the first tools created to move eLearning authoring towards responsive HTML5 content authored and delivered in the cloud. Cloud-based—no software download necessary. Screen capture and software simulation features are good for systems training.

The Next Generation of E-Learning

Rapid eLearning

In fact, the industry used to spend a lot of time talking about the programming part of elearning. The tool is easy to use and at the same time it’s empowering because it offers a level of capability that didn’t exist years ago without requiring some programming know-how. Finally, I could create a lot of the interactivity that I wanted to do but couldn’t because I didn’t have the Flash programming skills. Easily Edit Screencasts & Software Simulations.
