Rapid eLearning Through Software Simulations And Screencasts

Upside Learning

Previously when I discussed freeform and template-based rapid content authoring tools, I kept software simulation tools aside. The main reason was that such simulation tools are not always used for developing just any type of learning but focused on training content creation for a specific software application or system. The software simulation in turn, can be divided into screen capturing tools and interactive simulation development tools.

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.

Expectations From eLearning Authoring Tools

Upside Learning

Should be able to import external Flash SWF as well as audio and video in variety of popular formats. Please note, I haven’t considered full-fledged development tools like Adobe Flash, for which some amount of technical proficiency is required.

Adobe Captivate: Live, Online Training Now Available in Central European Time Zone Hours

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

  This beginner Adobe Captivate training class will quickly have you creating eLearning and mLearning lessons that include software simulations, demonstrations and soft-skills (compliance training). And you will learn how to publish your lessons for the widest possible audience including how to output both Flash (SWF) and HTML5 (so that your lessons will play on such mobile devices as the Apple iPad).

Adobe Flash - My favorite tool of choice. In this case I am making the course itself in Flash. This includes each page, characters, animation, and interactive elements with the exception of the software simulations (sims) and the final assessment/quiz. Adobe Captivate - The course will contain many "try me" sims for a software upgrade in which we are implementing. Each sim will launch in a new window from the Flash course.

5 Advantages of using Adobe Captivate 9

CommLab India

Creating top-notch software simulations/tutorials has always been its biggest strength. Best-in-class screen capture capabilities for software simulations. Like I mentioned earlier, Adobe Captivate is the ideal choice for creating software simulations. Its screen capture capability allows you to create robust software simulations with multiple learning modes in a single recording session.

What’s Hot with Articulate 360? – Part 7: Engage 360

CommLab India

We saw that Storyline 360 can be used to develop good software simulations and online assessments. The Articulate software allows you to deliver good learning experiences by ensuring consistency in volume, across all learning interactions. Flash objects and interactivities in the SWF format can be inserted. Quizzes can be published to Flash, HTML5, and Articulate Player, a native mobile app available in iOS and Android flavors.

What’s Hot with Articulate 360? – Part 5: Presenter

CommLab India

We saw that the Articulate 360 component enables the development of high quality software simulations and e-learning assessments. Studio 360 is a software application that can be used to transform classroom PowerPoint Presentations into engaging responsive web-based courses. Add SWF files, Captivate movies, and Camtasia screencasts to your course. The language of Flash and HTML5-based courses can be identified by screen readers.

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. The post Interactivity in Software Tutorials? Intro.

Two weeks with Captivate 2017

Adobe Captivate

Retina screen – software recordings. However to record a Video Demo or a Software simulation you did have to edit the AdobeCaptivate.ini file. If Flash player is enabled in your browser, you can test this movie (SWF) online in my personal blog. Intro. About two weeks ago Captivate 10, now labeled Captivate 2017 was released. If you did visit my blog in the past, you know that I prefer to wait a while before posting my first impressions.

Retina screen – software recordings. However to record a Video Demo or a Software simulation you did have to edit the AdobeCaptivate.ini file. Just one tip: if you are on Win10, check the Display setting before recording (both Video Demo/Software Simulation). If Flash player is enabled in your browser, you can test this movie (SWF) online in my personal blog. Intro. About two weeks ago Captivate 10, now labeled Captivate 2017 was released.

Raptivity: A Review

The eLearning Coach

Raptivity is a rapid development software tool that comes with a library of pre-built templates, most of which are interactive. The pre-built templates provide a way to quickly assemble an interaction or presentation segment and publish it to a Flash (.swf) swf) format. For example, in the Brain Teasers category you’ll find templates for a jigsaw interaction, flash cards, analogous pair, wild cards and a classification exercise. Tags: SOFTWARE REVIEWS
