All companies have rules, guidelines, policies, operating procedures, and strict regulations that employees are expected to know. State and federal agencies govern many basic activities of companies and is yet another layer of compliance that needs successful communication to employees. The challenge is to keep employees interested and engaged in the training events presenting these dry, boring, and even sleep-inducing subjects. Yet, employees are required to view the training material and demonstrate their understanding of the material.

Session participants will learn how to use Adobe Captivate 5 to develop an engaging, immersive learning environment. Captivate has extensive capabilities, and you can use it to develop training that attracts the learner and keeps them involved in the learning process. You’ll learn how Blood Systems developed a learning environment that provides intermediate-level knowledge of current Good Manufacturing Processes in the blood banking industry using an interface that interests employees and engages them in a storyline that makes the content “sticky.”

In this session, you will learn:

  • The components of an immersive learning environment and the design of a basic storyline and learning environment concept
  • The Captivate features and tools that you can use to create discovery learning opportunities
  • How to include “sticky” methods for presenting new material
  • Options for building easy-to-access reference areas for prior knowledge recall or searchable content
  • Various ways to check for understanding
Audience: Intermediate designers, developers, and others familiar with trends in eLearning and the most widely used rapid authoring tools.
