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.
Another thing that Adobe has included in Captivate 5.5 are a number of quiz templates. These are designed to help you get going faster with quizzing and they provide a nice baseline with some designs that will make your quizzes that much more interesting for your learners. These quizzes can be found in the Captivate 5.5 installation folder in the Gallery folder and in the Quiz folder and in the Templates folder. You can see the path on a Macintosh right here. It's a similar path on a Windows computer. Just browse in your Program Files down into the Adobe Captivate folder and then choose Gallery/Quiz and Templates.
There are six templates that will be installed with Captivate 5.5 and they're indicated here. I'm going to open up Clean_blue and we'll see what that looks like. Double-click it to open. Let's zoom out so we can see the entire page. Something that you'll notice immediately is that this isn't actually a template. This is an existing Captivate project. CPTX. It is not a Captivate template file. This means that you need to make adjustments to this quiz and then save it to be able to take advantage of it.
Another thing that you can do is to copy and paste these slides onto your existing projects. You will need to move the master slide as well, so just be aware that when you move these questions over to your project you will have to move the master slide so that they will take on the appropriate appearance. In the Clean_blue example you can see that there are pre-built designs for many of the question types. I've got multiple choice, true/false, a fill in the blank area, a short answer question, a matching question. I also have a hotspot, a sequence, and then there's my results page.
As you know there are some additional question types, but this gives you the ability to create a nice-looking quiz that you can use right away. In order to reuse these things, as I said before you'll need to make adjustments to this quiz file and then save it to use it for your own purposes. Of course, the first thing that you should do is to go into the Quiz Properties and then make adjustments there to make it fit your learning management system. These are what's going to be shown at the end of the quiz and then of course in the Preferences panel you'll find all of the learning management hookups.
We cover that in another movie. There's also an online gallery of these quiz templates. I'd like to show you where that gallery is now. Under Quiz you'll see Download Quiz Templates. This will open up your web browser and take you to the Captivate 5.5 Quiz Templates page. At the time of this recording there are six templates available. We've already looked at Clean Blue and then the other choices are here. There are four and then we'll click and there's two more. We do anticipate that these templates will grow over time, so check back here from time to time to see updates to the quiz templates.
Since I already have these six templates installed, I don't need to download any now, so let's return to Captivate. These templates are a great starting point for you when you're building quizzes. Of course, you can update and change any of the art elements that are here to match your branding. Explore the other five templates on your own and then start tuning them up for your own use.
