315 BYOD: Adobe Captivate: Stories, Variables, and Advanced Actions
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Tuesday, March 26
Quarter after quarter, year after year, designers and developers are challenged with creating new and exciting courses. Too often, though, courses are outsourced or made into dull, linear experiences where content is clicked through and glossed over. Imagine creating a memorable course that submerges your learners into a personalized, engaging experience—but how?
In this session, you’ll learn how stories, variables, and advanced actions can help you create engaging content with Adobe Captivate. You’ll write a story with an enticing introduction and learning challenge. You’ll learn how to use the challenge to effectively guide your learner through the content. Using variables and advanced actions, you’ll provide learners with opportunities to make decisions throughout the course. You’ll leave this session as a master of Captivate!
In this session, you will learn:
- Why a story is more impactful and relatable than run-of-the-mill objective slides
- What makes a good story and character (someone the learners can relate to)
- How to create a manageable branch path
- How to use variables and advanced actions to create a personalized course in Adobe Captivate
- How to use standard and conditional actions
- How to create states and multi-state objects
