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.

Developer's Perspective of Adobe Captivate 6

Integrated Learnings

Developers, like me, get excited for new releases of software. Captivate 6 allows for non-graded quizzes as well as branching and partial scoring. Captivate has always been my favorite tool for software simulations. It has nice screen capturing capabilities and lends itself to creating and modifying simulations. Further, a single SCORM package can be exported that will adapt to Flash or HTML 5 depending on the learner's system. by Jonathan Shoaf.

CommLab India

That’s not all – you can include interactivities, multimedia elements, assessments, simulations, conversations, and more, to transform a staid PowerPoint presentation to a riveting online knowledge nugget, based on adult learning principles and instructional strategies. iSpring has just the thing you need – its inbuilt TalkMaster tool to build dialogue simulations for effective conversations. Software/ERP Training: Rest your quest for a tool to build software simulations.

Interactivity in Software Tutorials?

Adobe Captivate

Whenever a comparison of eLearning authoring tools is published, Captivate still is considered to be the best tool for creation of software tutorials. Maybe a blog, explaining why I am wondering about the use of Captivate for the creation of software tutorials, explaining the three possible workflows with growing level of interactivity can lead to some feedback anyway. Workflow 3: Software simulations. Interactive objects can always be scored, and reported to a LMS.

Storyline, Captivate, Lectora – An Evaluation Checklist of 3 Rapid Authoring Tools

CommLab India

The eLearning Guild has come out with a report that lists the most desired features in rapid e-learning authoring software. Can show a review of the questions after scoring. Can insert Flash animations. Games, Scenarios, and Simulations. Can create simple software simulations. Can create complex software simulations. Can publish to mobile web (ex: HTML5). Can publish to Flash.

Updated Comparison of E-Learning Authoring Tools

E-learning Uncovered

Studio ’13 is a very nice upgrade that features new Engage templates, additional quiz questions (including drag-and-drop), feedback layers, HTML5 publishing, characters, and a unified player, among other things. ( For that reason, many of its scores have not changed – it is still easier to use and has better graphics capabilities than the other tools in the grid, and it still has less power than the others – but that’s by design. Software Simulations.

Important Features of an Ideal Rapid Authoring Tool

The eLearning Guild had come up with a report 1 that lists the most desired features in rapid e-learning courseware authoring software. Showing a review of the questions after displaying the score. Inserting HTML5, Flash, and text animations. Games, Scenarios, and Simulations. Effectively designed games, scenarios, and simulations prove very useful in enhancing the quality of online training. Adding software simulations. Flash.
