Course Companion for Adobe Captivate 6
“Course Companion for Adobe Captivate 6(A3C)” – a solution which can help you track how learners have been interacting with your Adobe Captivate courses. It gives you insight on aspects such as:
- how much time learners are spending on slide
- which interactive items they are interacting with
- how much time they are away from slide, on which slide they are dropping out of the course
- how many times they are visiting a slide
- how they have been performing on the quiz.
Based on these analyses, you can know about how learners are reacting to your course. If this is not how you expected your courses to perform, you can make changes to the courses and re circulate them.
After publishing a new version of the course, you can also compare two versions based on many parameters to analyze how the new version has been received as compared to the older version.
Course Companion for Adobe Captivate (A3C) has been on adobe labs for while. With the release of Adobe Captivate 6, this has also evolved quite a bit and you can use it with the current version of Adobe Captivate.
The important enhancements are support for tracking HTML 5 content, support for new question type pretest, and performance improvements.
