Rapid content development
Get started quickly with a friendly user interface, built-in tutorials, and the ability to create software training by recording any application. Add audio by converting text to speech in a few clicks.
Collaborate effectively with features like templates, which enable team members to contribute content without modifying a project's design, and the new Adobe® Captivate® Reviewer, an Adobe AIR® application that lets reviewers enter comments directly on your SWF files.
Easy SWF file creation
Keep learners engaged with smoothly integrated audio, video for Adobe Flash® software, and rich interactivity. Adobe Captivate automatically generates a SWF file — complete with a preloader, playback controls, voice-over, and Table of Contents — from slide-based content, which can be e-mailed or delivered via websites, blogs, intranets, and online help systems.
Roundtrip PowerPoint workflow
Leverage existing Microsoft PowerPoint slides in your projects. Import slides with audio and interactivity, easily update the content, and keep your PowerPoint and Adobe Captivate files in sync with the dynamically linked import option.
Rich media and image support
Create engaging eLearning experiences by incorporating images, animations, audio, and video in multiple file formats. Use the built-in library to quickly access and manage media files of your project, drag and drop objects from the library onto slides, or import libraries from other projects.
Complex interactivity without programming
Increase content effectiveness by easily adding interactivity, including quizzes with scoring and branching and different kinds of interactive elements. Enhance content with Variables, Advanced Actions, and new customizable widgets such as games, charts, and new question types.
Integration with eLearning applications and SCORM- and AICC-compliant Learning Management Systems
Leverage existing resources by integrating simulations with other eLearning tools. Adobe Captivate supports SCORM 2004, SCORM 1.2, and AICC and offers one-click publishing to Adobe Acrobat® Connect™ Pro software.
Create quizzes from a large variety of question types, and improve assessments by randomizing questions from a question pool. Shuffle answers at runtime to display multiple-choice options in a different order each time.
Custom controls, templates, and Skins
Develop and customize captions and playback controls to match corporate identity or an application's interface. Create eye-catching Skins with tables of contents to display any set of Adobe Captivate projects.
Support for multiple formats, including AVI and PDF
Author once and generate multiple file formats for easy distribution. Output to AVI for viewing on YouTube™ and a variety of mobile devices; embed Adobe Captivate movies in Adobe PDF files; and more.
