If you can imagine it, you can probably use Adobe Captivate’s Advanced Actions to do it. Do you want to make your course more interactive but lack inspiration or technical skills to do so? This class is for you.

Attend this 3-hour class and you'll learn to use some of the slickest Captivate features that will engage your learners like never before. Specifically, you will learn how to add complex interactivity that utilizes conditional actions, variables, and decision blocks.

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

Topics covered will include some of the following:

In this class we’ll incorporate:

  • Conditional Actions.

If you intend to build complex interactions or create games in Captivate, conditional actions are the way to go. Conditional actions allow you to create a variety of actions for specific situations.

  • Multiple Decision Blocks

What makes conditional actions even more powerful is the ability to add numerous decisions blocks that are executed, one after the other, in a specific sequence. Using Decision Blocks you can gather multiple criteria in order to personalize and branch the learner to specific areas in your course.

  • Expressions

Expressions are typically used in captivate to perform complex mathematical equations (multiplication, division, addition, subtraction). However, you can also use expressions to concatenate strings of actions together.
