In Captivate 5 Essential Training, author James Lockman demonstrates the core features of Captivate 5, the popular tool for authoring e-learning content such as interactive presentations, click-through simulations, and customized assessments. He shows how to import and sync PowerPoint presentations, add interactivity, and incorporate audio, video, and voiceovers. The course also includes tutorials on assessment reporting and integrating with SCORM-compliant learning management systems. Exercise files accompany the course.
In this lesson, we're going to enable Acrobat.com reporting for this quiz. We are going to be using the Chapter 11_a file that we built in an earlier part of this chapter. Please open it now if you don't have it open already. In order to enable our reporting to Acrobat.com, we've got to go to the Preferences panel. The Preferences panel is located under the Adobe Captivate menu, on a Macintosh, or under the Edit menu on a Windows computer. Please select Quiz > Reporting from the category list. Next, we need to enable Acrobat.com reporting.
I would like to know whether the student passed or failed the quiz. So I'll make this change now, and then we'll configure our connection to Acrobat.com. If you're going to use Acrobat.com as your learning management system you must take this configuration step. In order to store your results in Acrobat.com, you need to have an Adobe ID. You can create an Adobe ID now by clicking this button right here. I happen to have an Adobe ID already but I would like to show you what that form looks like.
When you go to Acrobat.com, you need to create your Free Account. You can do that by clicking this link here or the link up in the upper right-hand corner of the window. Your Adobe ID must be a valid email address. Acrobat.com will send an email to that address to validate it. So you need to be able to access it so that you can access your Acrobat.com account. You'll need to enter a password as well. Your first and last names are used to identify you when you use your Acrobat.com account for things like reviewing or commenting or forms data collection.
You need to enter your birth date as well as the region where you're going to be operating. If you don't like to receive communications from Adobe you can simply disable the "I would like to receive email communications." Once you've entered that information click Sign Up and you'll get the confirmation e-mail. I've already set up my account so I'm going to go back to Captivate and continue the process. I'll enter my Adobe ID now, and my password.
Next, I the need to identify this quiz and how it fits within my company's learning management strategy. For whom has this quiz been built? In this case, it's the company called Hansel & Petal. Secondly, which department in Hansel & Petal is responsible for the quiz? In this case, it's the HR department. Lastly, to what course does this quiz belong? In this case, it's Amaryllis.
It could, however, be part of a larger program, which could involve many different flowers. Courses often involve multiple components. In this case, however, this course is strictly about the Amaryllis. Once I've got all of that information entered, I can click Save. Acrobat.com will now build all of the infrastructure for reporting. If I already have the infrastructure in place, then it will be a very quick connection. Once this is done, I'll click OK to save the configuration.
Having made those changes, now I need to save my file. Under the File menu, Save As. We'll call it 11_b. Acrobat.com is not an enterprise- level learning management system. Nonetheless, it represents a very handy way for you to quickly create a quiz, get it published, and gather information, without involving your IT department.
