This course covers the core Adobe Captivate 2017 (also known as Captivate 10) skills needed to create interactive eLearning and mLearning content. You learn how to create a soft-skills lesson from scratch, including how to record and produce software demonstrations and interactive training simulations. You learn how to control the mouse pointer and add such standard objects as text captions, images, characters, assets from the eLearning Brothers, and highlight boxes. You will record, import and edit audio, and further enhance the learner experience by adding interactivity via click boxes, buttons and text entry boxes. Have you already created content using Microsoft PowerPoint? You learn how to import existing PowerPoint content into Captivate. Finally, you learn to publish your project in SWF and HTML5 formats so that your content can be uploaded to a web server for consumption on virtually any device, including the iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices.
