Advanced Adobe Captivate training (1 or 2 days)

Takes your use of Captivate to the next level, bringing your content forward with additional training on the advanced features available.

Because of the different ways that Captivate can be used once you get beyond the basics, we don't have a standard course syllabus - instead we gear the training towards our clients' specific requirements and the type of content they're looking to produce. We arrange for you to discuss your requirements with one of our Captivate trainers who will recommend the topics your training should cover and suggest the course duration (usually 1 or 2 days). Topics typically covered in Advanced Captivate training include:

Editable animation effects that smoothly interact with Photoshop and Adobe Animate for enhanced and efficient content development.

The use of variables to create highly personalised and realistic materials.

Collaboration with team members via the powerful 'Reviewer' software.

Analysing quiz results.

Techniques for improving efficiency and production quality.

Please see the course outline for further suggestions of topics that be covered in Advanced Captivate training.

Advanced Captivate training is aimed at delegates who have attended our Introduction to Adobe Captivate training course, or anyone else with this knowledge through other means.

Advanced Captivate training is arranged on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a course for your group, at one of our venues or yours anywhere in the UK. Training can be based on any recent version of Captivate. Scheduled (public) courses are not available.
