P25 BYOD: Building Next-Gen Interactive eLearning with Captivate
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Tuesday, October 23
Building great interactions is paramount in creating optimal eLearning experiences. Interactions help to keep your audience focused and can tremendously increase retention. Building state-of-the-art interactions in Adobe Captivate involves surprising and creative combinations of variables, advanced actions, and other features. In addition, all of these interactions must translate nicely from the huge desktop to the tiny smartphone. It can seem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn’t have to be.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to combine various features of Adobe Captivate to create advanced interactions with a high pedagogical value. You will also learn how to design interactions so they translate nicely to any touch device of any size. You will define various scenarios to test your interactions in a wide variety of situations so that you can chase as many bugs as possible before delivering your courses. Along the way, you will gather tips, tricks, and best practices.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to leverage the power of advanced actions, shared actions, and variables
- How to take your drag-and-drop interactions to the next level
- How to use multi-state objects to define advanced interactions
- How to define test cases for your interactions
- How to make sure your interactions translate nicely to any mobile device
