Adobe Captivate 9 is the most widely used rapid authoring tool and one of most popular eLearning tools. The tool is known for its capability to develop software simulations and responsive eLearning courses.
In this blog, I am going to explain about rulers and guide.
Adobe Captivate has made the task of creating software simulations quite easy. However, many of us still look to customize its elements. The good news is, Adobe Captivate makes customizations easy. In this blog, we will see how to customize elements such as smart shapes, highlight boxes, and captions that are generated in online simulations developed in Captivate.
Selecting the right authoring tool for rapid eLearning projects is a process riddled with uncertainty. How will you know which eLearning tool to work with?. I have worked on several authoring tools. Today, I am sharing my views on the 3 widely used tools -Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, and Lectora Inspire 16.
In my previous blog, we have seen how to assign variable values to questions, let’s now start calculating the stored variable values in the Result page.
Go to the Result page.
In my last blog, we have seen how to insert quiz question and create variables, Let’s start assigning variables quickly for questions.
- Select first question Go to the Quiz tab where you can see On Success option
- Select Execute Advance Actions from the drop down listright side you can see yellow color Advance action folder upon clicking the folder you can see Advance action windows appear
- Select Standard actions form the Action Type option, Rename Action Name(Correct FeedBack) of your choice for your understanding
E-learning courses have the option to test learners on the knowledge gained through the final quiz, and the Result page displays their scores. The normally accepted par score is 80%. But if learners do not get the desired score, they can retake the course and try again.
Since its launch, Lectora 16 has gained a lot of following among e-learning developers. This can undoubtedly be attributed to its wonderful features supporting responsive design. To show you what it’s like to work on Lectora 16, I will show you how to create a simple Click on Tabs interactivity. Using similar steps, you can create other interactivities such as click on Numbers, Images, Hotspots, FAQs, and slide shows.
Abode Captivate is one of the most preferred e-learning rapid authoring tools. Over the years, Adobe Captivate has released various versions adding a number of amazing features to the tool. The tool has really evolved, giving developers the power to create responsive courses, simulation-based courses, and also highly interactive courses. In this blog post, I would like to discuss a few limitations I have come across in Adobe Captivate 9 so that the Adobe Captivate team can address them in the next release.
Most e-learning development teams will agree with me when I say that as the time taken to develop online courses increases, so does the cost associated with it. There are many ways to cut down the development time thereby decreasing the cost. One easy way is by using shortcut keys in the tool you are developing the course in.
When developing an eLearning course using rapid authoring tools, you should know which format is supported by the tool to import audio files, videos, and images.
If the tool does not support the image, video, or audio format you want to import, you will have to waste time converting them into the required format.
