Software Simulations – Learning benefits

CommLab India

Are you sure they have enough training on the new software to operate it flawlessly? Did the training course include simulations? Let me tell you about the benefits of simulations in software training so that you can have an informed discussion with your training partner. The traditional approach to software training focuses on explaining the working of the software. The software is used the right way and yields better output.

How to Record Software Simulation in Adobe Captivate 9

CommLab India

If you belong to an organization that is involved in developing software, you know how tough it is to create training that will teach your employees how to use software the optimal way. How do you overcome these problems and train your staff effectively so that they become ready to use the tool? E-learning provides the ideal solution to this issue through “ Watch-Try-Do ” simulations. It’s a fairly simple process to record a software simulation in Adobe Captivate.

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. I know, first world problems. 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.

  Fortunately, both problems are easily fixed.     Start Captivate and create a software simulation.   And here's another issue that's been reported: when attempting to create a software simulation on a Mac, the red recording area doesn't show up (meaning you really can't create the simulation).   Looking to get a jump start on creating software simulations with Adobe Captivate?

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

mLearning Revolution

Articulate in my experience builds software that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also intuitive and easy to use. I remember the first time I installed Articulate Engage, I thought this is how software should be built, it’s beautiful and engaging. Articulate knows this and I like the way they approached solving this problem in Storyline. Storyline approaches making software simulations in a whole new ways as compared to Adobe Captivate.

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.

Video slide transition

Adobe Captivate

Issue resolved in the meantime, the problem was having the project on the network and not locally or in the LMS system. Dear Experts, I have a progressive download video on the second slide of my captivate project (which is otherwise a software simulation) and I would like to do a transition at the end of the video (which is also the end of the slide, as I set the length of the slide to the same as the video) back to the first slide.

Glitchy Failure Captions in Captivate

This is basically a software simulation with an avatar & audio. I played with the timing and pause settings, but still got the same behavior (or created some new glitchy problem). Recently I’ve been working on a Captivate tutorial to help our facilitators better understand the thought process of troubleshooting a specific part of their course setup. Most slides have a clickable area within the LMS interface.

Congratulations! – Prerelease Experience

Adobe Captivate

Captivate has grown in all these years from an application mainly meant to create (good) software simulations to an all-round tool suitable for all possible eLearning assets. We both experienced the same big problem: is this name linked to a woman or to a man? You had issues with my Flemish name, I have problems with your names, but … found a workaround . Today the Adobe team has a well-deserved celebration day: Captivate version 2019 (11) has been released!

Important Factors of E learning in Skill Development

Your Training Edge

But all e-learning courses are not same for example; it can be a software simulation which shows the click path through an application or any other. Writing skills are the basic need of every student or every person but the problem is that everyone has not writing skills. To deal with problems you should have high toleration level. As it is said that your problems is not matter but the matter is that how you respond on them, basically the response is matter.

E-learning in the Telecommunications Industry


For the call-center personnel, it is important to understand the same concepts in a more detailed manner, with special focus on problem solving. Using software simulations, sales staff can be trained on the ways of filling up the forms in an efficient manner. The simulations can provide multiple opportunities to master the basics, like using capitals in certain fields, filling out required data like pincodes, and so on.

How Effective are Video-Based Training Courses?


Additionally, contributors at KZO Innovations see the value in video training, especially as it affects those who some may refer to as “problem employees.” There are several specific instances when employers should use video-based training: to provide product education, to effectively onboard new workers, to summarize a course, to simulate new software, and to train workers in essential soft skills. Software simulations. Training is like oxygen to a company.

Preparing to Create SOP Training

Kapp Notes

I received an email the other day from a person who is tasked with creating a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) training for an online project management software. I also have a book which addresses software training. Look on pages 93-96 specifically but the entire chapter 3 covers simulations for learning which might be helpful in this case. If it is online, development software like Camtasia , Captivate , ZebraZapps (cloud based)or Storyline 2 seem appropriate.

Interactivities in Level 2 and Level 3:Limited and Moderate Interactions

CommLab India

Limited interactivity can be used to teach principles such as compliance training and non-complex business problems. It involves a problem-based approach where real world business problems that need authentic representation and sophisticated practice are addressed. For example, medical training such as surgeries and flight simulations can be taught through this level of interaction. In my previous blog, I discussed the first level of interaction, passive interaction.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE: Recording Screen Actions on a PC with a High-Density Screen

The net result is that you cannot record the screen, either in software simulation or in video demo recording mode. Even after all that, many developers report that while recording works, the Captivate software itself becomes so teeny-tiny that it's impossible to use.

eLearning: Playbar or No Playbar? Let the Debate Begin

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

If your eLearning lesson is interactive (perhaps it's a software simulation with a quiz, or a soft skills lesson with buttons for navigation), the learner who navigates via the playbar instead of the interactive slide objects can derail the lesson. The most common location for the playbar is below the video or simulation. The biggest problem with the bottom-position occurs when the video is very tall.

Adobe Captivate or Adobe Presenter: Which One Is Right For You?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Presenter lessons can be used to "flip" the classroom--the homework is to watch the lecture, and then practice assignments, worked problems, and the like are done in the classroom with the teacher's help.  But, as is typical with any kind of software, the easier the software is to use, the fewer choices you have about certain things. This software allows you to focus more on the content than on eLearning functionality.

Three skills to acquire (Captivate newbies)

A theme includes all object styles, master slides, skin and defaults for software simulations.

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. If you start from a business problem, you should be able to show the results of training—increased sales, fewer errors, etc. You don’t have to show a full course, just a screenshot or two and an explanation of what problem was solved with your training and how you did it.

Integrated Learnings

I'm a big fan of scenario-based and simulation eLearning; these take longer to Design, but the outcome is worth it. And I'd argue that even a quick 3-minute software simulation takes instructional design time to accurately show exactly what the user should be doing. But if a learning project starts and stops here, like is tempting for some timelines, then problems are likely to ensue. By Jay Lambert.

Nine Training Alternatives to ‘Correct’ and ‘Incorrect’


In simulations and virtual worlds, learners are given a chance to explore, manipulate and practice so they can learn in a safe environment. In a reasonably accurate simulation, feedback occurs naturally as the result of an action. For example, in a driving simulation, turning a simulated steering wheel to the right appears to turn the car to the right. Digital World: Then again, sometimes our simulations replicate the digital world, as in a software simulation.

I really like Articulate Quizmaker '09 software. I'm bummed to say I have not been using it much because the focus of the content I've been creating is more on software simulations and not a lot of traditional quiz functionality. To fix this problem, I had to edit how Quizmaker closes. However, I'm using it with my latest project and I am reminded again how easy it is to create slick looking quizzes using Quizmaker. I'm working with the Saba LMS for this project.
