This is a simple step-by-step guide for everyone who has recently started working with Adobe Captivate.
FasterCourse (https://fastercourse.com) has been working with Captivate for quite some time now and we know that it takes time to learn everything by yourself as Captivate provides a lot of good and advanced elearning features. As we came across the same questions from our users every day about ‘where can I find the objects’ or ‘why can’t I see the popups in a slide’, we realized that a lot of people who start using Captivate are struggling on their own and a little guidance would be helpful.
We created 7 videos about all the necessary things you need to know in order to feel confident while working in Adobe Captivate.
More Captivate tutorial videos you can find here – https://fastercourse.com/training/captivate/
1. Getting Started
In this video, we will cover the first steps on how to open the file and save a project and slowly we will move on to some of the necessary tools that you will need while working with Adobe Captivate 2019. You will learn how the timeline works and how you can show and hide elements in your slide.
2. Masterslide & Object Styles
We will walk you through master slide view and object styles. You will see how easy it is to add objects in the master slide so they would be visible in all slides. Together we will create a new object style that you will later use to improve the look and feel of your project with a few simple clicks.
3. Create Text and Image Slides
In this video, you will learn how to add new slides to your project and how to change the master slide for each slide. We will add text fields and images and with previously built styles we will get a nice looking text and image slide in a few minutes.
4. Build a Simple Video Slide
Video slides are wildly popular, we will show you how you can add video slide to your project and how easy it is to change the player.
5. Single Choice Question Slide
Together we will add a new question slide to this project and we will show you how easy you can add new answer options or change the question form from single to multiple choice with one click. We will show you how you can set the correct answer and where you can find all feedbacks.
6. Build a Drag and Drop Slide
Step by step we will show you how the drag and drop interactions are made. We will create all objects and you will see how you can set the correct answers and add more answer options.
7. Publish Your Course in SCORM
This is one of the most important steps and we will show you where you can change publish settings and how you can publish your course in SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004.
You can also download the exercise file for this class. Click here and below the video, you will find a button to download the file. The package consists of one Adobe Captivate 2019 file with the final version of this task.

Here is the lin k:
Example: you talk about Master slides and Object styles, which are both components of a theme, but where is the real start component ‘Theme Colors palette’?
Timeline is by far the number one problem: what is its functionality, why will it be paused and what are the consequences.
Submit Process of quiz slides? Is this included? I have posted a sequence of very basic articles about Quizzing, is that information in your training?
The usual basic training, which is not explaining the real problems a starter will encounter. I will post a link to an article where I summarized my 10 years experience as trainer, consultant, and daily answering questions on all social media. Those stumbling bocks are NOT in your basic training schedule at all. Will post in a separate comment, because it may be affected by moderator delay.
Thank you for your feedback, Captivate is an amazing tool, that allows to build courses in various ways. I guess that is why the issues you have encountered differ from the ones we have seen. We have 12 years of experience with Captivate and lately have developed a template library with over 700 templates that are used by thousands worldwide. We actually got very positive user feedback from the first users of our Captivate school, mainly because we also give downloadable work file, so that everyone can watch a training video and play around with the file in their own pace.
