Adode Captivate is the most preferred tool as it allows creating dynamic and engaging projects in a single software package with ease. By using Adobe Captivate, course developers can create application trainings and software tutorials easily and quickly. Let’s look at a few benefits and limitations of Adobe Captivate:
- Use this tool to develop Software Simulations for eLearning courses.
- Develop quizzes quickly using inbuilt tools. It has a good collection of assessments.
- Customizable widgets – Add actions to objects (e.g. hide on click).
- Closed caption text-synch with animation.
But, its uniqueness of being ideal for software simulations also becomes its limitation. This tool is not ideal for soft skills training though you can develop such courses if you have only this tool at your disposal and have such a need.
However, the ideal use for Captivate would be for rapid elearning development and when you need application and software simulations.
