310 Layering Captivate Advanced Actions and States
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Getting bored with standard Adobe Captivate advanced actions and states? Dive deep into a case study of layered advanced actions and states in a real-world Captivate project. The project has overlay navigation screens, branching sections, and multi-screen knowledge checks. You will learn the benefits and challenges of each part, as well as how they might work in your projects.
In this case study session, find out how the project included several modules with the overlay navigation template. You’ll explore how the layered sections added to the sophisticated presentation of the content, and the issues that arose while developing the modules. You’ll learn how the actions and states allow users independence in exploring the interactive elements. You’ll see how the project connected multiple Captivate files, XML elements, and PDFs to provide resources for the users.
In this session, you will learn:
- How advanced actions and states were used in an “explore the terms” interaction
- How the main Captivate file connected to a secondary support file for resources
- How external resources were added to the project and made available on-demand for the users
- Benefits and warnings for designers and developers in reproducing specific interactive content
- Best practices for naming elements in a multi-module interactivity
