Create software simulations

Adobe Captivate

Create software simulations projects. Captivate allows you to simultaneously create software simulations in all the three available modes: Demo : Demostrate a software procedure. Training : Guide a user through a software procedure. Let’s create a short software simulation of the steps required to create a new PowerPoint presentation. We will simultaneously create the simulations in the three available modes. Assets and samples.

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.

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. E-learning provides the ideal solution to this issue through “ Watch-Try-Do ” simulations.

Making a Game Out of Software Simulations

Integrated Learnings

I recently worked on a lengthy course that included a lot of software training. The intent of the training was not only to introduce learners to the software, but also to build fluency with several key tasks. So, one of the challenges with designing the training was figuring out how to provide the repetition needed to build fluency, without it feeling repeatedly boring for the learners. To make it fun, we combined a handful of simulations into a web-based game.

eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: How Much Time Does It Take to Create eLearning?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

The answer I provide is dependent upon a couple of factors.   If you’re creating a software simulation, you’ll need a step-by-step recording script.   Once you're written the software simulation script, you'll likely need to run through it multiple times to ensure it's accurate.   Recording the Software Simulation or Video Demo. If you use Camtasia, I suggest creating software demonstrations instead of simulations.

eLearning: When Should You Record Your Voiceover Audio?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In fact, home-grown audio works fine provided the audio doesn't contain loud, annoying, distracting background noise, or the narrator has a very thick accent that hinders learner comprehension. If you're creating a software demonstration or interactive simulation, should the audio be recorded while you're recording the screen actions?   So what about interactive software simulations or soft-skills learning?

Expectations From eLearning Authoring Tools

Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

To focus more on rapidly authored eLearning content, I am excluding the screen recording tools which are mainly used for software simulation type of courses. A set of elements are provided which can be inserted and laid out on the blank canvas to create content for the course. But, the best part of such tools is they provide an opportunity to use one’s imagination (and understanding) to create very good and engaging eLearning content.

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.).
