How To Screen Capture an Android Device with Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate

If you have Adobe Captivate on an Apple Mac and an iPhone / iPad, you may very well know that you can capture iPhone and iPad screen activity directly into Captivate. There may be other apps that allow you to do this, however, we found that capturing the Android screen from the desktop gave more flexibility when recording the screen, allowing you to either capture in Video Demo mode or Software Simulation mode from within Captivate.

eLearning: It's Time for Some Reflection

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

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. Neither Captivate nor Storyline are available for mobile devices so creating software simulations directly on those devices wasn't an option. I switched to my iPad and enabled AirPlay.

Working with the iPad - Onlignment , July 26, 2010 It’s now two months since the iPad was launched in the UK, and so it’s timely that people are starting to comment on how they and others are using it. Inspired by these and other posts I thought I would jot down my own thoughts on how the iPad fits into my toolset. Now all I take is the iPad.

It will look the same on an iPad, right?”. “We We recently researched that question, seeking mobile software simulators that would let us view and interact with web-based training content right on our computers. For our research, we were looking for a simulator that would help us test a Storyline course on an iPad. Initial research yielded a not very surprising answer: “Want to test your content for the iPad? Use an iPad.”

When the Recording Area appears, you record your screen actions just as you would if you recorded screen actions using the Software Simulation mode.   Unlike a typical Software Simulation (where there are multiple slides and Timelines), a Video Demo consists of a single video and just one Timeline. Published videos will play on any computer (Mac, Windows), upload to YouTube, and play on most mobile devices (including the iPad).

Rapid Authoring Tools For Creating mLearning

Upside Learning

Lectora and Lectora Online provide templates specifically designed for iPhone and iPad. Recently they have also released free template sets for the iPad which one can use for iPad content authoring. Maybe eventually Flash based tools will gain significance for mLearning provided Flash gets supported by major smartphones and mobile platforms (save the iPhones and iPads).

eLearning: Is Right-Clicking Right?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

If you're responsible for creating a software simulation that teaches a learner how to make Word text bold, which of the commands are you going to simulate? While you could simulate multiple options, I'd encourage you to focus on just one (adding multiple options is going to take you too long to produce). Personally, I'd simulate the menu option or the toolbar button. Showing a right-click in a software demonstration is fine, but not a simulation.).

Getting a Head Start with Mobile Interactions

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

When Raptivity released its first collection of mobile interactions for iPad and iPhone based eLearning, the path-breaking HTML5 Pack received several accolades. For example, in the iPad world, there is no mouse-over, so any interaction involving mouse-over has to use mouse clicks. While it was a very useful collection of interactions, it mainly featured a bunch of memory aids such as flash cards.

Adobe Captivate: Video Demos and the Mouse

by Kevin Siegel        Captivate's Software Simulation and Responsive modes get all the glory.       As I mentioned above, simulations and responsive eLearning are both important. In my experience, you can create Video Demos  twice as fast  as either simulations or responsive projects. And why not? Interactive eLearning that works great on mobile devices is important.

7 reasons why the new Articulate Storyline is a Game-Changer for eLearning
