ADOBE CAPTIVATE: Make Your Software Simulations Scorable

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

The Assessment recording mode in Adobe Captivate creates a step-by-step software simulation that is intended to function as a test. It is part of the three-part formal software lesson: Demo, then Training (practice), then Assessment (test).   The reason you get 100% every time is that by default, each click box in the Assessment simulation is set to Infinite Attempts. Repeat for each click box in the Assessment simulation. by Jennie Ruby, CTT, COTP.

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.

Using Text Entry Boxes: Basics

Adobe Captivate

A score attached to the objet (default = 1pt) can be added to the total quiz score. It is one of the two interactive objects that will be automatically inserted when creating a software simultaion in Training or Assessment mode (the other object is the click box), whenever the learner is required to fill in a field. A validated TEB can be scored, the score can be added to the Quiz total (will appear in the Advanced Interaction panel) and be reported. Intro.

Should I Edit Course and SCO Identifier and Title?

Adobe Captivate

Any time we go to create a new course, we pull this common cptx from our controlled documents library, paste in our new slides, author the simulations, etc., We create solely software simulations.) We add in scored interactive items (usually click boxes) toward the end of each individual assessment simulation, and we publish these as SCORM packages for upload to our LMS. Hello! I tried asking this question early in the week, but for some reason it did not post.

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. For example, you've created a button on a slide that, when clicked, reports a score to your Learning Management System (LMS). The most common location for the playbar is below the video or simulation.

Storyline 360: Simulation and Assessment-Development Capabilities

CommLab India

In the first post , we saw that the e-learning development software constitutes nine elements. Today, we will look at the capabilities of Storyline 360 to create software simulations and assessments. Software Simulation-development Capabilities of Storyline 360. Storyline 360 allows you to insert screencasts of your software application in demonstrations, tutorials, and videos. Creation of Online Lessons on Software is Made Effective.

Three skills to acquire (Captivate newbies)

Adobe Captivate

It doesn’t matter whether you are developing software simulations, soft skills training, responsive or normal projects, if you master those Captivate features you’ll feel more comfortable and save a lot of time. Captivate quiz and score slides have pretty strict rules. A lot of functionality is built in the quizzing and score master slides. A theme includes all object styles, master slides, skin and defaults for software simulations. Intro.

Testing Doesn’t Work at Work

Digitec Interactive

I don’t care about the passing score on the eLearning. Since passing classes and graduating depended on test scores, it made sense for you to learn “how to test.” It doesn’t tell you whether they actually tried or just kept clicking until they reached the passing score. Role-playing, software simulations, decision making scenarios, and other interactive forms of assessment are also more memorable than traditional testing.

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.

Captivate’s Quizzes (1): Terminology

Adobe Captivate

10p score, no penalty. Only one type has the possibility for partial scoring: MCQ with multiple correct answers. They are not scored, will not be present in the quizzing system variables nor in Review/Retake. No score, no penalty, partial scoring in MCQ impossible. Lot of features are supported: for MCQ with multiple correct answers you can set up partial scoring, you can add feedback messages etc. Same for the Score slide. Custom score slide.

For instance, you can deliver content based on the score achieved by a learner in a pre-test. For instance, you can use the Articulate application to create an online sales simulation where a customer reaction is determined by the rep’s response to an objection. You have scored 90% and completed the quiz successfully.

5 Useful JavaScripts I Commonly Use

Adobe Captivate

For example, if I had the variable ‘score’ that kept track of a users progress, I can control which comment to display with this variable. comments[score] // returns the comment at score’s value. Let’s say you are creating a software simulation and you want the ‘up arrow’ to change the state of an object. This is for anyone interested in learning more about how to use JavaScript with Captivate.

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. by Jonathan Shoaf. Some people get excited about the new fall TV shows in September. Baseball fans get excited for the MLB playoffs in October.

What I Ask During a Course Review

eLearning Cyclops

Simulations/Interactivity Are the soft skill simulations reflective of realistic scenarios? Do the simulations, interactive exercises and/or pop-ups function properly? Are the software simulations/demonstrations realistic and appear to reflect the actual “live” system? Does the assessment provide correct scoring results? I just released the first draft of a new WBT course and as usual I have a slew of people reviewing the course.

Converting Classroom Training to Elearning

The Learning Dispatch

Brandon Winston: One of the ones … it is kind of a follow-on for a safe place to fail, software simulation. You can build a software simulator that really not only trains them in the right way to it but lets them know, but lets them know, “Hey, if you click that button it would’ve deleted all of this information, so always click this one.” ” So I love software simulation and the repeatability of that.

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.

Gamification doesn’t mean developing games and there’s more!

Eat Learn Repeat

I’ve taken part in some Gamification events where I’ve noticed that some of us get confused between the terms Game, Game-Based Learning, Simulations, and Gamification. Simulation. A Simulation is an imitation of real world process in a virtual world. Simulations are primarily used to train people on real life processes or systems in a risk-free environment. Simulations demand close to real life experiences and does not entertain any fictional elements.

Captivate and Articulate for Interactive Slide-Based Presentations

Tony Karrer

I understand that Captivate is great for simulations and demonstrations of computer tasks, and can be used for scenario-based training for that kind of content. However, this project doesn't involve ANY simulations, demonstrations, or scenario-based training. Certainly, as the person asking the questions states, if you were going for Software Simulation eLearning then Captivate (or the other tools list in my post) would be more appropriate than Captivate.
