Adobe Captivate Focus on Demonstrations


This course is designed for beginners with no experience in Adobe Captivate. However, you will need Adobe Captivate version 8 installed on your system and a basic understanding of your operating system. Microsoft Windows 7 is used for the videos. If you are using Windows 8 or a Mac, you will need to be able to translate what is shown for your specific operating system.


This course is designed for Captivate 8 users who want to create software demonstrations. You will learn how to effectively create, generate and distribute a complete and functional Adobe Captivate Demonstration. You will learn how Captivate records a software demonstration, how to configure Captivate to better work with your own Demonstrations, what objects are added by Captivate and how to configure the objects to suit you for your own desired look and feel. There are no additional supplemental materials provided as all you will need is a computer and Captvate 8. Many Captivate courses begin with introducing you to the application, pointing out this and that in the very beginning. This course takes a different approach. One more realistic in the way that typical authors actually USE and experience Adobe Captivate. It’s WORKFLOW based, and Captivate is gradually introduced to the learner. Along the journey, best practices and tips are offered to help you be more effective.
