Software simulation Issue

Adobe Captivate

I am working on a new software simulation. I have done over twenty of these in an older version of Captivate with no issues. Just received a new computer with the updated version of captivate and for some reason the simulation only shows the first and last slide i do with nothing in the middle. Is there something that changed in the newest version? I have two monitors and set the simulation to record the application window.

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. To make it fun, we combined a handful of simulations into a web-based game. The game starts with a playful, fictional backstory, which provides a reason for needing to complete the selected tasks in the software quickly and accurately. By Shelley A. Gable.

Tony posted links to free downloads of Snag It and Camtasia. I have been a long time user of Snag It and love it for screen shots.
