Introduction to Adobe Captivate

Version 9 • 2017

2 Days, 9:00-4:00, 12 Hours

This 2-day course introduces students to Adobe Captivate, a software program designed to create interactive eLearning content.  In this hands-on computer training course, students will use Adobe Captivate to capture screen shots and create interactive Adobe Captivate projects with captions, rollovers, clickable areas, and sound effects.

Softek’s courses are instructor-led and students are given the opportunity for interaction in our small group setting.  This course is geared for users who are comfortable using a computer, but have little or no experience using Adobe Captivate.  We would highly recommend this course to those who are in the position of an Instructional Designer, Help Author, Trainer, or similar field.
