Adobe Captivate 8: Responsive E-learning Authoring Tool

Adobe Captivate has come up with the latest update “Captivate 8”. This version has a lot of new features added to it. Here I would like to share some of its features under the following heads.

1. Responsive project

This is the feature that stands out uniquely from the remaining authoring tools. You can create eLearning courses whose GUI adjusts according to the screen size of the device they are accessed from. With this you can publish one course that is compatible to all devices and browsers.
