Inviting users to meet at Adobe Learning Summit: propose to help with all kind of Captivate problems, or need for explanation.
The Adobe team has invited me to the Adobe Learning Summit (3-4 October) based on my 10 years of answering questions in forums and other social media (I don’t like titles like ‘Legend’ or ‘Top most contributor/expert’). They insist on having me meet users, being able for once to do in person what I do daily throughout virtual channels with Captivate users worldwide: help for solving small and big issues you are bumping on, offering practical tips, explaining and clarifying workflows. It is always a pleasure to meet users in person!
Welcome to everyone. It is possible you don’t know me, in that case have a look at the blogs I posted on this portal, and at my personal blog: http://blog.lilybiri.com. You will see that I have some favourite topics:
- Shared and Advanced actions: since they appeared with Captivate 4 I have explored them in depth, helped many developers solving use cases (also as consultant and trainer). A fan recently indicated me as ‘True empress of Advanced and Shared Actions’, a promotion over the title ‘Queen of Advanced Actions’ which I got long time ago.
Example: Shared Actions
- Stumbling Blocks: most users struggle with the Timeline, which is the most important panel in Captivate. The sequence of articles and movies I published about the timeline, and their popularity proves my statement. Second main problem is understanding the design of the Quiz in Captivate: how is it set up, which tweaks are possible. Third problem, linked with design, is setting up a custom Theme. This can save so many hours while developing, and its power is often misunderstood.
Example: Pausing Captivate’s Timeline
- Workarounds: Captivate is to me the most flexible and multifeatured eLearning authoring tool. Because of that multitude of features, not every feature has all the functionality some users wish to have. Explore my blog posts, for many of those lacking functionality I have posted a workaround.
Example: Navigation button for InteractiveVideo
I will be available in the hotel of the conference (Hard Rock) on 2 October (afternoon), 3 and 4 October. If you want to meet, send me a note using any channel you want: Twitter (@Lilybiri), comment on this article, mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, If I am able to have a US phone number, will post it here as well. Or you may just hail me when you see me walking around (will assist in all classes for the certificate on 3 October).
Looking forward to meeting!
