With the latest version ‘2017 release’, Adobe Captivate has also joined the bandwagon of responsive eLearning authoring tools. It has come up with promises such as conversion of legacy courses into fully responsive eLearning, beautiful fonts & style consistency across the devices, and a lot of scope for customization.
The moment you say Captivate, many think of screen capture simulations. Yes, it’s popular for that. However, that’s not the only feature it has. Captivate has turned into full-fledged eLearning authoring tool over the years. Rapid eLearning, responsive courses, legacy courses conversion, or whatever you mention in the realm of eLearning, Captivate has made its mark.
‘Developing scenarios with Adobe Captivate!’ Does it sound weird? Yes, for many it may sound strange. Captivate is known for its simulations. All its other features are often in the shade of simulations and rarely come into focus. This blog is an effort to highlight the scenario-development capabilities of Adobe Captivate. Let’s uncover…
We are in the mobile age. E-learning that is confined to desktops may not be apt for Gen Y learners who switch between several devices a day. So, develop mobile-friendly courses with HTML5 output, responsive themes, play bar, and other features of Adobe Captivate. Today, let’s explore those features of Adobe Captivate that help develop mobile compatible online courses.
Gone are the days when employees rigorously sat at their desktops to undertake an entire e-learning course. This is a dynamic era. Employees are constantly on the run chasing clients or targets, leaving them little time to dedicatedly sit and learn. Instead, they choose to take their learning with them.
For today’s young workforce, using technology is second nature. They are at home with using multiple devices for their day-to-day activities. Combining laptops, tablets, and smartphones with high speed Internet, employees are constantly on the run, chasing clients or targets. This leaves them with little time to dedicatedly sit and learn; instead, they choose to take their learning with them.
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.
