All set to participate in the HTLM5 contest? Here are some helpful resources…

You must have already heard about the Adobe Captivate HTML5 Contest that began on 13th January. I’m sure you would be all excited to participate in the contest. So I thought of helping you out with some resources to make your task easier 🙂

To create an eLearning course in HTML5 format, you will need a copy of Adobe Captivate 5.5 and HTML5 Converter. You will have to create the eLearning course using Adobe Captivate 5.5 and then convert it to HTML5 format using HTML5 Converter for Adobe Captivate.

If you don’t have a licensed version of Adobe Captivate 5.5, don’t worry. Click here to download a 30-day trial version of Adobe Captivate 5.5 software.

The HTML5 Converter for Adobe Captivate is available on Adobe Labs. Click here to download and use the converter. Make sure you are running the Converter as an administrator. The HTML5 Converter is still in a Beta version. You will find that some of the features and functionalities are not supported by the Converter, so make sure you read the release notes carefully before creating the content.

Finally, here are the rules of the contest:
