So you know the basics of Captivate pretty well but you want to enhance your lessons. Advanced Actions can help you take you lessons to the next level. In this course, we will work through standard advanced actions. You will also learn how to create and use User-Defined Variables. These types of variables can collect data typed by the learner that can be recalled at any time throughout the course.

Attend this live online 3-hour class and you'll get clarity on what is often considered the murkiest part of mastering Adobe Captivate. 

Note: This class is very interactive; exercise files will be provided for Captivate 9 or newer. If you are using previous versions of captivate you can attend the class but exercise files will not be provided. A trial version of Captivate is fine and can be downloaded from www.adobe.com

Awesome course! for the price. As I communicate, I'm a novice to eLearning and I learned so much in the 4 hours. I appreciated the training materials and the instructor doing hands-on; it helped me conceptualize how storyboarding and scripting is a must to create the right eLearning course for the learners.
