Course Description

As with all of our classes, our Adobe Captivate classes are hands-on and project-driven. In this 2-day class, we will have you creating eLearning and mLearning lessons that include software simulations, demonstrations and soft-skills (compliance training). You will learn how to make your lessons engaging and interactive by creating quizzes, adding text captions, animations, videos, rollovers, clickable areas (buttons and click boxes), typing areas, voiceover audio and sound effects. For more details on the specific features covered, see the list under Class Topics.

Because students will work along with the instructor to complete a series of projects, we recommend using two displays in our online classes (this could be two monitors, two computers or a computer and a tablet), so that the student can keep one eye on the instructor’s screen as they work.

A copy of the coursebook and the data files will be sent to you prior to the start of the class. The coursebook for this class is available as a paperback or as an eBook.

After you have completed the class, you will receive $100 off a one-year subscription to the eLearning Brothers. Please note: This offer cannot be combined with other offers and is non-transferable. Discount must be claimed by contacting the eLearning Brothers within one month of your class date.

Who Should Attend the Introduction to Adobe Captivate class?

This class is designed for someone who is comfortable using their computer but is new (or fairly new) to Adobe Captivate. It’s also appropriate for those who have been using Adobe Captivate to edit existing projects, but don’t feel comfortable designing new pieces from scratch.

Prerequisites

Students attending this training class should already have a solid understanding of their operating system (Mac or Windows), know how to use their keyboard and mouse, and how to drag a program from one window to the other on a dual monitor system. They should understand how to open programs, open, save and close files, and how to locate files on their computers. This is an introductory class, so no prior knowledge of Adobe Captivate is required.
