Captivate has always been known as just a screen capture/editing application. This is an outdated opinion, which was true with the earlier versions. Adobe has now released the latest version, Captivate 7, which can be considered an all round developing tool for all kinds of eLearning assets. With lots of out-of-the-box features, it can transform a course from ordinary to an interactive and an engaging course. Let’s see why Captivate is an ideal tool for mobile learning
Captivate 7 for Mobile learning
Adobe Captivate 7 allows you to publish eLearning and mLearning at the same time. It can publish eLearning courses in flash, HTML5 and iOS format from a single source. It automatically detects the learners’ delivery platform (be it a desktop or a mobile device) and delivers the right content based on the type of device.
With Captivate 7 you can make your content more accessible with the ability to pause and resume anywhere, anytime. Because it allows you to publish eLearning courses to both SWF and HTML5, learners can pause the course on their mobiles and resume the same course on their desktops from the point where they paused.
Adobe Captivate 7 for ELearning on iPad
Captivate 7 makes it easy to deploy your content to learners who use iPAD. The great attraction factor here is that the eLearning course output in an iPad appears similar to the output seen on a PC. We did some testing to check how the course performs on an iPad-which interactivities work properly on an iPad and which ones can be avoided. We thought it will be a great idea to share the results with you.

Rollovers should always be avoided on mobile devices because there’s no mouse cursor. So rollovers need to be avoided or converted to other finger-friendly interactivities.
No Flash Objects
iOS devices do not support flash objects(.swf) or courses developed using Flash tools. So smooth animations or Flash animations can be published as videos.
