Welcome

(MUSIC). Hi, I'm Anastasia McCune and welcome to Captivate Advanced Techniques. This course is all about expanding your toolbox of techniques while making your work process more efficient. We'll look at some ways to get the best of demonstrations and simulations in separate and combined projects. We'll spend some time looking at the different ways you can customize and save the look and feel of your projects. That way you don't have to spend time making sure basic formatting is consistent for every new project.

We'll record and edit our own audio and well as create audio using text to speech. We'll look at using variables and advanced actions to make your projects react to user input and behavior at a more advanced level. We'll also play with creating video demonstrations, as well as making quizzes that present random questions instead of the same questions over and over. Finally, we'll take a closer look at the publishing options available, as well as plenty of other tools and techniques.

So let's get started with Captivate Advanced Techniques, and make your projects even better than they were before.
