Breaking Captivate News!
I've been an eLearning designer and developer since 2005. In 2015 I started my own eLearning design company. I began to create Adobe Captivate video tutorials to help promote my business through my own YouTube channel at https://youtube.com/paulwilsonlearning. These videos were intended to attract potential clients looking for a skilled eLearning designer and developer. This strategy proved successful as I've worked with clients from all over the world, helping them build highly engaging eLearning solutions. My YouTube channel presented an additional benefit of attracting aspiring Captivate developers to seek me out as a teacher. I now offer both online and onsite training on Adobe Captivate, teaching the skills that users need to build engaging and interactive learning.

If you’re like me you’re always trying to find out the latest about Adobe eLearning. This post might get shut down but I won’t be silenced! I’ve managed to figure out that the Adobe Learning Summit 2019 will take place on October 3rd, 2019. I don’t have the conference details yet but I noticed that an additional date for the Adobe Captivate Specialist Certification Program has been added here: https://elearning.meetus.adobeevents.com/

You’ll notice that the Las Vegas event is scheduled for October 2nd and is priced at $499. The regular price of the Adobe Captivate Specialist Certification Program is $799. The only time it’s less expensive is when it coincides with an Adobe eLearning live event such as the eLearning Conference in Washington DC or the Learning Summit in Las Vegas. You can’t keep a secret from me.

So why does this matter in March? Here’s the deal. When you participate on the Adobe eLearning Community by performing activities like showcasing your work, posting blogs or video tutorials, writing testimonials for Adobe eLearning products and posting discussions, questions or answering user questions correctly, Adobe gives you points. Now you might be thinking why do I give a hoot about points? Here’s why. If you can accumulate 5,000 points (this discussion I’ve started will earn me 100 points), you will receive…

  1. 12 months of complimentary license usage of Adobe Captivate and Captivate Prime;
  2. complimentary invite, including travel and accommodation costs within the US to the Adobe Learning Summit; and
  3. invitation to speak at the Adobe Learning Summit

Knowing that the Adobe Learning Summit is in early October means you have some work to do to get ready. You’ve got six months or so to post 50 video tutorials, blog posts, or demo projects created in Captivate. Accumulate the points needed and not only can get Adobe Captivate for free for 12 months but you could be going to Vegas for free as well. The Adobe Learning Summit 2019 would be my eighth Adobe Live event that I’ve attended for no cost to me. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you there as well.

I can’t attend this year, but hopefully this offer will stand for next year!

That would be an admirable goal if we didn’t have day jobs. LOL  Seriously that sounds like a wonderful plan.  Now to think of things to post that Paul Wilson hasn’t already done.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Take care,
Susan

Paul do you know when they are planning to release the dates for the Vegas Conference. I am trying to negotiate doing the certificate training with management and need to get info. I know the Specialist program is on Oct 2nd but am looking for all the details about the learning summit.

I’m checking every day. My guess is October 3rd will be the conference but don’t hold me to that. I’m only basing this on the fact that all the previous Adobe Captivate Specialist sessions have been the day before. Again, it’s just a guess.

Paul this is amazing. I was in your class in D.C. and didn’t realize that I received the training at a discount! I would love to see you in Vegas, so lets see if I can put all of your great teaching to work.

Whenever possible it’s best to do the specialist course at a conference.

Paul, I did earn the certificate at the Washington DC conference and then attended the workshop the 2nd day. Is it possible for me to do the workshop only in Vegas the day after the conference in October?

When they start advertising it you will need to register but the Adobe Learning Summit is open to everyone.
