215 BYOD: Adobe Captivate: Moving Beyond the Basics
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Tuesday, March 26
It can be relatively easy to explore the entry-level features of Adobe Captivate. However, understanding the more advanced functions can help you avoid mundane, linear courses that are predictable and cookie-cutter in design. These features of Captivate may initially feel confusing and difficult to master; however, the potential of this authoring tool is huge—as long as users are confident and competent using the more advanced features. These additional features not only bring this authoring tool to life, but also enable developers to create highly engaging and highly personalized learning experiences.
This session will explore some of the features of Adobe Captivate that many wish to use—but few really understand. Using a sample project, you’ll learn what advanced actions and variables are and look at approaches for why and how to use them effectively. You’ll also look at how to use advanced actions and variables together to create engaging eLearning experiences.
In this session, you will learn:
- What advanced actions are
- Why to use advanced actions
- When to use advanced actions
- What variables are
- Why to use variables
- When to use variables
