Course Syllabus

Section 1: Exploring Captivate

Zoom and Magnify
Navigating a Project
Exploring and Resetting the Workspace
Previewing the Entire Project

Section 2: New Project & Soft Skills eLearning
Students can create two types of eLearning with Captivate: software simulations or soft skills lessons. A software simulation is essentially a recording of step-by-step actions performed on a computer. students can use Captivate to create interactive software simulations ( “Let Me Try” ), demonstrations (“Show Me”) lessons, and videos (much like the kind seen on YouTube).

Soft Skills eLearning encompasses anything that doesn’t fall into the category of a software simulation or demonstration. Any life skill would fall into the category of soft skills. During the lessons in this section, students will create a soft skills lesson that includes multiple slides, text, images, and buttons that allow the learner to move through the lesson at their own pace.
