Adobe Captivate DraftOne of the greatest new features in Adobe Captivate 9 is the addition of a pre-production workflow for Captivate. In fact with the addition of Adobe Captivate Draft for pre-production design and storyboarding, and the addition of Adobe Captivate Prime (an all new LMS from Adobe) it is now possible to complete your entire eLearning production experience using the Adobe eLearning solutions.

Instructional Designers and eLearning developers generally begin their course design process by developing a plan for the course. Often they work with various stakeholders including subject matter experts, legal counsel, managers and others to develop a solution that addresses the need which inspired the training in the first place. One of the most common ways to express plans for an interactive course is to create a storyboard. This is an illustration that depicts the expected content for each moment in a project – usually these are paralleled by slides in the finished eLearning.

Adobe Captivate Draft provides a simple, intuitive way for course authors to quickly draft such storyboards using only a finger and an iPad. It’s a mobile friendly, collaborative, and incredibly expedient way to rapidly develop your ideas and map out the design of your eLearning course.

Many of the details are expanded in this brief (7 min) video. Have a look and let me know what you think, or what questions remain in the comments section below.

The universities and colleges are accredited to deliver certain qualifications., therefore, the course requirements are almost always fixed. We train students and students sit an externally marked exam. The exam specification is very detailed document and the course must implement it in full.
The elearning element of the traditional course is minimal simply because to integrate the elearning into traditional course is a challange not to mention to develop the elarning component to be really useful is not straightforward. Usually i does not go beyond separate activity or online game of some form.
There is also the conflict of interests: if the elearning component is developed and branded by another Educational provider why would I tell my students that the competitors are so good that I want to use their work in my course. I note that to develop an useful elearning component for this this type of course the specific knowledge is require and it will be of interest only to comparable universities/ colleges. lower level Education providers is lovely to find it too hard, for the students they teach.
I am excited to try this out for the training for A Level Maths by Cambridge. I do not aim to replace the teaching but hopefully I will get something decent to get students to revise using it….
