Captivate 2019 - Advanced Training


( - Eastern)
Captivate 2019 - Advanced Logo

In this Adobe Captivate training course, you will create a highly interactive software simulation and learn to control the text that appears in the recording’s text captions by editing Captivate’s text capture templates. You will create responsive lessons (using Fluid Boxes and Breakpoints) that automatically reflow to fit just about any kind of display, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones.

You will learn how to use virtual reality with 360-degree images and videos and how to create interactive videos that include knowledge checks and other interactive objects. You will learn to fine-tune your Captivate production skills by leveraging object styles, master slides, themes, and advanced actions and how to engage your learners by adding variables, widgets, and learner interactions (including drag and drop) to your eLearning.

You will learn to create object styles, apply them globally, and import and export them. You will learn to create branch groups and create branching scenarios that allow learners to plot their own path through your course. Finally, you'll learn how to ensure your eLearning can be used by people with disabilities by adding such 508-compliant features as accessibility text, keyboard shortcuts, and closed captions and how to enable Captivate’s reporting features.
