Adobe Captivate (2017 Release): Wow Your Learners And Get Better Learning Outcomes With 25000+ Free Assets

It’s true. Plenty of eLearning authoring tools boast that they have an impressive selection of images, interactions, and graphics to choose from. However, Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) stands out from the crowd by offering over 25,000 FREE assets as part of their authoring tool package. You can integrate eLearning games, scenarios, and cutouts with minimal effort and maximum results. So, let’s take a closer look at how Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) can help you wow your learners and achieve better learning outcomes in a fraction of the time.

1. Include Motion Effects (No Programming Expertise Required).

In recent years, it was virtually impossible to integrate motion effects, such as paths and rotations, without having prior programming experience. However, Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) includes a wide range of motion effects that you can apply to your eLearning course content. This also pertains to responsive design eLearning courses that are mobile-ready. You have the ability to define linear motions, customize paths, and create scribble motion effects using Adobe Captivate (2017 Release). Use the Effects and Project Timeline to review every animation by simply hovering over the object to see how it interacts with other eLearning course elements. Learning developers also have the power to create different motion effects for every device to ensure an optimal eLearning experience.

2. Enhance Realism With Drag-And-Drop Interactions.

Use Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) to take your eLearning scenarios to the next level by adding drag-and-drop interactions. Instead of simply asking your learners to choose the correct course of action from a list, encourage them to actually perform the action by dragging and dropping objects around the screen. The tool also allows you to provide instant feedback to your learners, such as notifying them when they make an incorrect choice, by modifying the state of the object or target.

3. Improve Knowledge Comprehension With Rollovers.

Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) has a rollover effect tool that can be used for supplemental information or tips. For example, you can encourage your learners to roll the mouse over an object to learn more about its traits or principles. You also have the ability to include images, text, and audio in the rollover state, which can improve comprehension without overwhelming learners who are just looking for the basics.

4. Create Engaging Slideshows In A Fraction Of The Time.

Creating dynamic slideshows is virtually effortless with Adobe Captivate (2017 Release). The tool allows you to loop multiple states for any object, so that you can develop interactive online presentations using a wide range of media, including images, text, and online videos. This equates to more engaging and meaningful eLearning experiences, as users have the opportunity to actively participate instead of just watching the slides as they go by on the screen.

5. Choose From A Variety Of True-To-Life eLearning Characters.

Realism and relatability are key to a successful eLearning experience, and Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) offers plenty of true-to-life eLearning characters that can create a personal connection with your audience. In fact, Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) includes an abundance of out-of-the-box actions featuring unique gestures and poses. This can be an invaluable asset when it comes time to design your branching scenarios and online simulations. You can even use them to make your eLearning stories more effective or to guide the learners through the eLearning course.

6. Design And Repurpose High Quality Vector Images.

Images capture the imagination of your learners and make them connect with the eLearning content. However, this is only the case if they are high quality images that are relevant to the eLearning experience. The Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) authoring tool offers you the power to create and repurpose high quality vector images in your eLearning course that are viewable on all devices. You also have the option to turn them into auto shapes or buttons. If you want to edit the vector images before you integrate them into your eLearning course design, simply use the Adobe Illustrator CC to make the necessary modifications. Any images you use are automatically added to the media library, which means that you can use them time and time again in your eLearning projects.

7. Add A Splash Of Color To Your eLearning  Course.

Color has been proven to enhance the eLearning experience by boosting engagement and creating an emotional connection. With Adobe Captivate (2017 Release), eLearning professionals have the option to import colors from Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Kuler, as well as upload them to the swatches for Adobe Captivate (2017 Release). As a result, you can create more meaningful and immersive eLearning courses that catch the eye of the learner and encourage them to interact with the subject matter. You can even include color gradients, rotate handles, reflections, and shadowing.

8. Smart Shapes Make Button Creation Hassle-Free.

Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) includes a variety of smart shape buttons, such as circles, triangles, callouts, banners, and flowchart symbols which can be customized to create eLearning navigation buttons. You can even group smart shapes together to create simultaneous online interactions, or opt for different styles to alter their states. For example, you can choose to make the hover state separate from the down state of the object. This improves the navigability of your eLearning course, thereby improving the overall eLearning experience.

If you’re looking for a user-friendly authoring tool that is packed to the brim with useful features, then Adobe Captivate (2017 Release) is worth considering. This is especially true for eLearning professionals who need an all-in-one tool that can add interactivity and visually compelling graphics to their eLearning experiences.
