Webinar Recording - Create an Adobe Captivate project from scratch

Are you using Adobe Captivate for the first time? Wondering where to start?

In this webinar, we’ll take a practical approach to learning, spending time on the parts that are most important to attendees and sharing tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years.

Webinar Recording - Using Images in Adobe Captivate

So we know how to insert an image, but what about all the other fun and time-saving things we can do with images in Adobe Captivate . . ?

What about using animated GIFs? Or working with images in responsive projects? Do images behave differently when designing a responsive project?

Those are great questions and we’re glad you asked!

In this webinar, we’ll examine image behaviours, tips and workarounds. We’ll also look at the inbuilt Adobe Captivate editing functionality.

Not only will we delve into editing images from within Adobe Captivate, but we’ll explore using an outside image editing program, like Photoshop, or even MS Paint (I know there are fans out there..) and importing back into Adobe Captivate.

Don’t know how to insert an image at all? You’ll learn that too!

Webinar Recording - How to create multi-device eLearning using Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate 2017 includes the option to publish a project as scalable HTML5 and at times, this can be a more appropriate approach over creating a responsive design using breakpoints or fluid boxes.

In this webinar, we show you how to create multi-device eLearning without the need to build multiple designs, by using this scalable HTML5 publishing feature.

Webinar Recording - How to create a portfolio of eLearning samples when you’re starting out

New to the world of eLearning?
Looking to create a portfolio of work that showcases your skills in project design?
Having your own sample portfolio can be particularly useful when you’re just starting out and don’t have any client projects to showcase or when you can’t use client projects due to confidentiality. A sample portfolio will allow you to demonstrate your unique style and approach to potential clients.

In this webinar, we will teach you how to create your very own eLearning portfolio through MyPortfolio, a free tool available as part of a Creative Cloud plan. Using Adobe Captivate, we’ll guide you through how to create a video demonstration of your projects, and how to export this to your eLearning portfolio.

Webinar Recording - Software Training Experience using Adobe Captivate

In this webinar we look at creating software training experiences using Adobe Captivate, the difference between Video demos and Software Simulations, and we also discover just what “Use Portion of Background Image” means.

Creating an interactive mobile simulation in Adobe Captivate

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to create an interactive mobile simulation from a mobile phone.

Normally, to create a mobile simulation you would need to take individual screenshots on the phone, export these images from the phone to your computer, import them to Adobe Captivate and build the slides.

With the method you’ll discover in this webinar, you can use Adobe Captivate to create an interactive simulation from a phone in the same way that you’d create a desktop system simulation.

Key takeaways:

  • Create simulations of mobile apps and systems

  • Efficient development workflow

  • Output works on desktop as well as mobile devices

Using Adobe Captivate’s built-in quiz functionality combined with a splash of Advanced Actions, you can take your Imported PowerPoint to a whole new level ready to deploy to your Learning Management System or web server.

How to turn a linear PPT Presentation into an immersive, interactive Adobe Captivate project. PART TWO

During our most recent webinar, we shared some insights on how to turn a linear PowerPoint presentation into an interactive Captivate project, with the great mystery of the ‘green tick’ revealed!

Let’s pick up where we left off, building upon these concepts and showing you how to:

  • Use Shared Actions for accelerated deployment of section completion actions
  • Incorporate questions into each section
  • Utilise Adobe Captivate frames to navigate straight to a specific part of the slide
  • Display a final call to action on the menu slide to bypass the completed actions and finish the module

Their research explores the rapidly evolving mLearning landscape and shares the current trends shaping the world of Mobile Learning.

Did you know that 72% of information workers surveyed by Forrester in 2016 use smartphones for work, and 43% use tablets?

Some other topics discussed in this paper include:

  • how mobile impacts millennials in the workforce
  • microlearning
  • the challenges in the development of responsive mobile content

The Evolution of Workplace Learning

View and download the presentation slides from the keynote titled “The Evolution of Workplace Learning” at the recent Adobe eLearning Experience events presented by Adobe and Learning Plan across Australia and New Zealand in July and August 2017.

Below are eight suggestions to consider when creating learning experiences for the modern workplace environment:

  • Align learning to corporate strategy: Focus on business impact rather than training ROI. Build the key skills to deliver on corporate strategy.
  • Digital innovation: Build learning as digital innovation, using the same pillars as other digital applications.
  • Mobile first: Think and design mobile first. Deliver learning when people want to engage. User experience really matters.
  • Step up our game: good learning design doesn’t just happen. Don’t just be an order taker, be a problem solver.
  • Design for forgetting: the world has changed, memory is less valuable and mobiles are everywhere. Design with the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve in mind.
  • Do it remotely: using remote virtual classrooms and collaboration tools shouldn’t just be used to save money; it can enhance design opportunities and enable better learning experiences.
  • Keep the “good stuff”: remember in all of the above – keep in the good things history has taught us; storytelling, mentoring and coaching, portability, shared learning experiences together with some event-based learning when essential.

Workplace learning has evolved dramatically but at no point has the pace of change been as rapid as it is today. As an L&D industry, we need to change and think differently if we are going to remain relevant and deliver genuine value to business and staff. With the current advancements in technology, there has never been a better time to innovate. With new thinking and the right mix of strategy, design and technology, the next evolution in workplace learning has the opportunity to be a much-needed paradigm shift.

Lorem Ipsum is traditionally used as filler text to allow designers to show what text elements will look like in a finished design. Replacing meaningful content with placeholder text allows designers to design the form of the content before the content itself has been produced.

We have created our own version of lorum Ipsum called Learning Ipsum, which you can find here. Enjoy!
