I am providing another webinar in my series on Adobe Captivate fundamentals on Thursday, June 15, 2017. For those who were not able to participate in the prior sessions, they are linked below.
- Overview of using Captivate to record a video (March, 2017)
- Creating responsive eLearning assets with Captivate (April, 2017)
- Personalizing Captivate (May, 2017)
For the June webinar, I focused on creating software simulations and assessments. I will provide some starting materials and examples. This is just the start. I anticipate there will be a number of questions.
As I have done previously, I make all the assets available for those who wish to download them and try making changes. Of course, you will need the latest version of Adobe Captivate to open these files. At the time of this writing, that is Adobe Captivate 2017.
This is the video created from Adobe Connect.
For those who are interested, here are my files.
- Zip archive of all .cptx starting files used in the webinar. Again, these will only open with Adobe Captivate 2017 or newer.
- Example of the demo created in the software simulation (just a demonstration)
- Example of the assessment created in the software simulation (this tests your knowledge – assuming you have already viewed the demonstration; helpful hints are also provided).
- Example of the training test created in the software simulation (again, this tests your knowledge, but there are no hints – you must know what to do when).
In all these examples, no scores are recorded or saved. They are provided for example purposes only. I plan to have a later session to discuss inclusion of such assets into a learning management system. I also will show how to link these together into a larger module (with demo, assessment, and testing in one Captivate file).
I suppose it should be obvious, but the account/ subdomain created for the Filezilla demo no longer exists. If you look for it, you will not find it. Really, with a username of fred42, did you think I would leave that online for more than a few minutes?
I hope you find these resources helpful. As always, I look forward to your comments.
