Simulation can be defined as the replication of a real-world process or system. Simulations are used in many contexts, and can be used to create simulated environments for the testing, training, and optimization, of high-end technology, complex machinery, and software applications. As most simulations are computer-generated, they are an ideal element to incorporate in your e-learning program.
This is an era of a young and dynamic workforce, whose lives are molded by digital technology. Unlike their conservative counterparts, this millennial generation prefers to work and learn using digital media. Be it watching an informative video, undertaking a quick quiz to test their skills, or playing a learning-based game, your young workforce readily absorbs information served to them through any of such innovative mediums.
Are you looking for a single tool to develop mobile learning, software simulations, product demos, assessments, and more? Adobe Captivate is an amazing tool you can use for rapid eLearning development. The latest, 2017 release of this tool delivers an interactive learning experience. Corporate training professionals who want to rollout online courses quickly, and those who want to create software simulations and product demos, can benefit by using Captivate.
Assume that you have made the choice to invest in rapid eLearning, as part of the training program initiatives in your organization. The next big question that you will face is the choice of authoring tools for rapid eLearning development.
With an increasing number of people accessing the Internet through mobile devices rather than desktops, it makes sense to create online courses that are accessible on these devices. Therefore, it has become necessary to create courses with responsive design.
For quite some time now, the world has been harping on the impact of mobile devices on humanity.
Well, it has been established that we live in an age of mobile devices, that mobile devices rule our lives, and that most of us can’t get through the day without our mobile devices. What should this growing dependency on mobile devices mean to you, the training manager? It means that, unless you have catered for training that is accessible on mobile devices, you are at risk of losing your learners; invest in multi-device, responsive e-learning courses (created using rapid authoring tools), and you would have more than just their attention.
Today’s employees use multiple devices in a regular working day. So, both employees and trainees alike are looking at accessing e-learning on multiple devices with diverse screen sizes. As an e-learning developer, you have to look at designing a course that is suitable for every screen size and resolution. The authoring tool you choose has to meet the demands of responsive design. Adobe Captivate gives you the flexibility of creating a responsive e-learning course. Let us look at the five features of this tool that support responsive design.
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.
Each subject is learned in a unique way. For example, a language is learned well by speaking and practicing, and science by observations and validation. Similarly, executing tasks on a software application is learned well by observing the procedures and trying them again and again. Doing this on a live software application might lead to undesired consequences. For such a scenario, software training simulations can be a solution.
Adobe Captivate 8 is a popular authoring tool among e-learning developers because it offers versatile features that are conducive to create exciting e-learning courses.
