What’s your workflow for getting feedback on your captivate projects?

Hello,

I have been using Captivate mainly for creating software simulations, however I have recently created an eLearning module. The reviewers for the project did not have Captivate on their computers, and are senior, busy people in the company.

To get feedback before publishing the module we:

  1. Created the module and written the script in the slide notes.
  2. Printed the document as a handout with slides notes included.
  3. Sent the word document to reviewers who fed back in word.
  4. I made the changes, updated the word document and published a test module online, the reviewers tried it out and gave feedback.

The system was far from perfect, and seemed to involve a lot of word documents and time spent transferring things to word and then back into Captivate.

The process got me wondering, how do other people in the industry get feedback for their projects?

What have you found works and what doesn’t work?

You ask a good question. Since the Captivate Reviewer requires a crev or swf file what will happen when there is no flash output from Captivate

AIR applications should be able to run, had that confirmation quite a while ago. However I don’t know if that is the case for the Reviewer…

Consider Review My eLearning Dot Com. This allows you to send a link (no software for the stakeholder to install) and they have the ability to provide comments and feedback on each slide.

Hi Lieve,

I haven’t tried it with colleagues, and that was the route I was thinking of going down for our next project.

Do you have any advice on how best to get a reviewer process using the AIR application up and running?

Once it is installed on the reviewer’s system, they will see the project like if they had Captivate. They will be able to preview, to add comments which will appear in your original file.  Once it works, it is a great way for reviewing and taking care of the comments (or not).

I preferred the AIR Reviewer application, but had to install it myself on the systems of my peers. Did you ever try it?
