Some Features of Captivate

 

The links here provide a look at some of the special features of Captivate.


Sample Modules

 

The links below provide access to several different types of projects built with Adobe Captivate 5.5 and Captivate 6 and are intended to show many of the features of Captivate.

Note: For audio in any modules, I used TextAloud to convert the text to audio. This provides a great option if you don't have a good voice or don't want to pay to have the audio recorded.


HTML 5 Content for IPad Delivery

The ability to produce an HTML 5 product is one of the most significant changes in going from Captivate 5.5 to Captivate 6 and beyond. The following links show most all of the above modules published to be delivered using HTML 5 with the primary goal to show the various types of content created with Captivate 6 on the Apple IPad mobile devices which do not support Flash. I have listed any issues in converting the above modules that are delivered using Flash and items I had to eliminate.

No issues encountered.

Deleted Animated Text Object.

No issues encountered.

No issues encountered.

No issues encountered.

No randomization of questions from a Question Pool.

No Fill in the Blank Questions.

No Matching Question.

No slide with mouse over interactivity (sort of obvious with a touchpad device).

No slides with any "canned" Captivate animations.

No slides with embedded video.


A Short Course Built with Captivate - The Harmony 700 Universal Remote

This course on the use of the Harmony 700 Universal Remote was created as a sample to show what can be done with Captivate. The course includes modules that are content only (with some degree of interactivity), demonstrations (simulation), and practices (simulations). The course also includes a short scored assessment that could be delivered via an LMS for tracking of student scores and responses. Note that the html5 links can be viewed on the iPAD as well as other browsers that do not support Flash.

Using Templates

As an experienced developer using a variety of different tools, I have been a strong  believer in the creation and use of templates. Templates provide consistency among modules, courses, and developers on a team with the ultimate benefit being rapid development. The two links below show what templates might look like as  starters for either a training module or an assessment. Templates such as these can quickly be branded for a particular company or project. Likewise, it would take very little effort to restyle the background images to incorporate a different color scheme and/or layout. These templates make use of Master Slides as much as possible to assist in rapid development.

SCORM and AICC Compliance

Captivate publishes SCORM- and AICC-compliant content, so it works seamlessly with your learning management system (LMS).

Click here to learn how to download, set up, and use the SCORM Test Suite to test Storyline SCORM content.

If you don't have access to an LMS, check out the SCORM Cloud.

Click the links below for a few examples of modules delivered via the SCORM Cloud and published to the various standards. While testing each of these, pay close attention to the Completion and Satisfaction statuses when you stop and resume while in the middle of a module as well as when you pass or fail the Assessment.
