A Responsive Company Overview Template Using Captivate 2019 and Breakpoints
Captivate 2019 is a powerful tool for creating interactive eLearning content with advanced features, such as interactive video and virtual reality. However, Captivate 2019 is also useful for less demanding learning projects and for projects that are considered “communications”.
This showcase presents a responsive company overview template, developed for a client, that has been recreated in Adobe Captivate 2019. The client requested a template that could be used in a variety of contexts, including internal meetings, conference presentations and employee training. In addition, they wanted a template that was very “visual” and “fun”, thus the use of a number of photographs. The overall content is structured around a narrative of presenting an emerging trend, describing the impact it has on the business of clients and then presenting the company’s offerings as a solution to the business impact.
The slides with device screens include placeholders so that screen content can be changed, depending on the subject matter. The screen capture below shows two of the graphic placeholders, one for the screen display of the tablet and one for the company logo. To prevent graphics from distorting in the views, I created graphics that matched the aspect ratio of the placeholders, and documented those dimensions for future reference. For background graphics, I avoided specifying a “background” photo. Instead, I imported a graphic into each master slide and then resized and re-positioned, as needed for each breakpoint.
Note: All graphics used were royalty free and are documented in the final slide of the demonstration.

Note (2018 09 18): The term “Template” holds a special meaning in Captivate and refers to a .CPTL (Template) file. In title for this post, and within the text, I use the word “template” in the generic sense, meaning the file has a specific structure and can be re-used with your own content. The actual project file is a .CPTX file.
