What you'll learn in this captivate training:

This course teaches the core Adobe Captivate skills needed to create interactive eLearning content. 

You will learn how to create a soft-skills lesson from scratch. You’ll learn to record and produce software demonstrations, and interactive training simulations.

By the time you finish, you'll know 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'll be able to 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? Don’t throw that presentation away. You’ll learn how to import existing PowerPoint content into Captivate.

Last, but not least, you'll 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.

Target Student
This course is appropriate for beginners and for anyone who is self taught on the basics of Captivate. Quite often even experienced users find they benefit from a Core Skills: Level 1 class to fill in the gaps in their knowledge.

Prerequisites
Basic computer and file management skills are required for Core Skills level Adobe courses. Students should know how to - locate, copy and open files; create folders; arrange, re-size, minimize and maximize application windows; start and exit programs; manage use of multiple programs simultaneously; and switch between open programs.

Course Outline

Preface
  • In This Module You Will Learn About:
  • Education Through Pictures
  • RoboDemo to Captivate
  • Planning eLearning Projects
  • eLearning Development Phases
  • Budgeting Considerations
  • Project Size and Display Resolution
  • Designing Slides in Captivate
  • Fonts and eLearning
Module 1: Exploring Captivate
As you work through the lessons in this book, the goal is to get you comfortable with each specific Captivate area or feature before proceeding. Like any feature-rich program, mastering Captivate is going to be a marathon, not a sprint. Soon enough you’ll be in full stride, creating awesome eLearning content using Captivate. But before the sprint comes the crawl. During these first few activities, I’d like to give you a chance to familiarize yourself with Captivate’s user interface. Specifically, you’ll be instructed to start Captivate, open an existing project, and poke around Captivate’s interface a bit.

In This Module You Will Learn To:
  • Explore a Finished Captivate Project
  • Zoom and Magnify
  • Navigate a Project
  • Explore and Reset the Workspace
  • Preview the Entire Project
Module 2: New Project & Soft Skills eLearning
You can create two types of eLearning with Captivate: software simulations or soft skills lessons. A software simulation is essentially a recording of step-by-step actions performed on a computer. You can use Captivate to create interactive software simulations (often referred to as “Let Me Try” lessons), demonstrations (often referred to as “Show Me” lessons, and videos (much like the kind you’ve likely seen on YouTube).

Soft Skills eLearning encompasses anything that doesn’t fall into the category of a software simulation or demonstration (terrorism awareness, compliance training, conflict resolution, policies and procedures). Anything that’s a life skill would fall into the category of soft skills. During the lessons in this module, you will create a soft skills lesson that includes multiple slides, text, images, and buttons that allow the learner to move through the lesson at their own pace.

In This Module You Will Learn To:
  • Create a Blank Project
  • Add Images to Placeholders
  • Insert and Format a Text Button
  • Disable Click Sounds
Module 3: Recording Demos and Sims
Recording desktop actions is one of Captivate's key features... and you'll cover the hottest recording modes: demo, assessment, training and custom.

In This Module You Will Learn To:
  • Rehearse a Script
  • Review Recording Settings
  • Review Recording Modes
  • Record Using Multiple Modes
  • Record a Custom Simulation
  • Record a Demonstration that Pans
  • Manually Record the Screen
Module 4: Captions, Styles and Timing
Once you've recorded your lessons, the real work begins. During these lessons, you will learn how to add text caption, set object styles and control the timing of slides objects

  • Insert and Edit Text Captions

  • Change a Callout Type Used by a Text Caption
  • Control Slide Timing
  • Control Slide Object Timing
  • Check Spelling
  • Align Slide Objects
Module 5: Images and Smart Shapes
Adding images to your project will enhance the lesson. These lessons will teach you how to add images and shapes, how to manipulate them and manage them. You’ll also learn how to incorporate Photoshop documents (including the layers) into your Captivate project.

Module 6: Pointers, Paths, Boxes, and Buttons

In This Module You Will Learn To:
  • Control Mouse Effects
  • Edit a Mouse Path
  • Clone an Object Style

Module 7: Rollovers and Zooms

  • Insert a Rollover Caption
  • Insert a Rollover Image
  • Insert a Rollover Slidelet

Module 8: Audio
eLearning lessons that contain voiceover audio and sound effects are more effective than lessons that don't... and that's just a fact! Learn how to add, edit and record audio during these lessons. And if that's not enough, you'll also learn how to convert Text-to-Speech, which is just cool!
