Topics covered will include some of the following:

  • System Variables

    System variables are predefined variables that come with Captivate when you buy the license. System variables help you pick up data to help you control what is visible to the user; to display information in other files such as the current slide; to manipulate information from the learner’s computer; and to display quiz information.
  • Actions Triggered by Events

    Many events in Captivate can trigger the action you choose. There are numerous types of actions that can be triggered when, you, the developer, decide.

  • Basic Actions

    A basic action is a single action that can be triggered when you, the developer, decide.

  • Standard Actions

    Standard actions are scripts containing one or more actions. They can trigger a variety of behaviors in sequence.
