New advanced Captivate book now available.
by Kevin Siegel, COTP, CTT
My newest book, “Adobe Captivate 2019: Beyond the Essentials” is now available on Amazon.com both as a paperback or in digital form for the Kindle.
This is a self-paced hands-on workbook that teaches the higher-end, more advanced functionality of Adobe Captivate 2019. By following step-by-step activities, you will learn tons of advanced Adobe Captivate concepts. For instance, you’ll create a highly interactive software simulation in the very first module. Not only that, you’ll control the text that appears in the recording’s text captions by editing Captivate’s text capture templates.
Is support for mobile learners a hot topic in your company? You’ll create responsive lessons (using Fluid Boxes and Breakpoints) that automatically reflow to fit just about any kind of display including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smart phones.
What about Virtual Reality with 360-degree images? What about interactive videos (videos that suddenly include knowledge checks and other interactive objects)? Captivate now supports both features and you’ll learn about them in my book.
You’ll fine-tune your Captivate production skills by leveraging object styles, master slides, themes, and advanced actions. And you’ll learn ow to engage your learners by adding variables, widgets, and learner interactions (including drag and drop) to your projects.
Learn to create object styles, apply them globally, and import and export them. Knock large projects down to size by learning to create branch groups. Create branching scenarios that allow learners to plot their own path through your course. And templates! You’ll learn to create those too!
Ensure your eLearning can be used by people with disabilities by adding such 508-compliant features as accessibility text, keyboard shortcuts, and closed captions.
Enable Captivate’s reporting features and, along the way, learn about Learning Management Systems, SCORM, SCOs, Manifests, and content packages.
This book features:
- Captivate projects, images, audio files, and other assets to get started
- Dozens of step-by-step, hands-on activities
- Hundreds of screen captures
- Confidence Checks to challenge your new skills
