My Favorite Adobe Captivate 6 Features and a Short Tutorial on How to Create a Play/Pause Button
At Qurve Learning, we create e-learning programs that help patients prepare for medical procedures. Our programs are fully narrated and use photos, illustrations, animation, and video to make health information easy to understand and follow.
We’ve used Adobe’s E-Learning Suite since it was first released a few years ago and have upgraded regularly. We recently took Captivate 6 for a test spin and am pleased with the new enhancements. Here are few of our favorite features:
- Smart Shapes – these gems can be used as buttons! And best of all, when they’re used as a buttons, they can be displayed for the rest of the project! This feature is allowing us to create custom play controls which match our graphic design and are present for the entire project.
- High Definition Screencasts – the new high definition screen casts are beautiful! We use the screen casts to show patients who have limited computer experience how to use our programs. The new screen casts are so much more crisp and smooth – and they’re easy to create and edit.
- Actors – We’ve been purchasing e-learning actors for years. It’s a delight to now have a collection of actors built in with Captivate 6. And it’s affordable and easy to purchase more (including medical images) from the eLearning brothers: http://elearningtemplates.com/elearning-people-cutouts/
These are just a few of our favorite features. And here’s a quick tutorial which uses the new high definition screencast feature to show you how to create a play/pause button using the new Captivate 6 smart shapes.
