Captivate 2017 - Advanced Logo
This course teaches the higher-end, more advanced functionality of Adobe Captivate 2017. You improve your screen recording skills via project templates and by pre-editing your text captions. You learn how to create and produce video projects that will enable you to record screen actions in real-time. Then, after learning how to import questions into Captivate using the GIFT format, you learn how to create a random quiz using question pools and random question slides. You learn how to create eLearning lessons that reflow to fit on just about any kind of display (including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smart phones). You also learn how to create responsive projects from scratch, and how to edit and produce responsive content. As your learning adventure continues, you fine-tune your production skills by learning about object styles, master slides, themes, and advanced actions. You learn to engage the learner like never before by using variables, widgets, and interactions. You also learn how to create branching scenarios that will enable learners to plot their own learning path. You ensure your eLearning and mLearning output can be used by people with disabilities by adding such 508-compliant features as accessibility text and closed captions. You learn about SCORM, SCORM Cloud, AICC, TinCan, SCOs, Manifests, and how to upload a published lesson into a Learning Management System.
