- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Anastasia McCune, and welcome to Captivate Projects: Software Simulations. I'm going to show you how to use Captivate to create a training, specifically, a training that simulates for the user what it's like to use a software. We'll start with how to choose the correct Captivate project type and settings, then we'll record a project From scratch, Then we'll edit the project, and learn about the different Captivate elements that you can include to make your software simulation realistic and intuitive for your users.
Finally, I'll tell you about the different publishing options available, and end with a completed Captivate project that's ready to go for users to interact with. Training people on how to use a software can be challenging. With Captivate and some attention to detail, you can create effective, engaging training to get the job done. I'm excited to show you how to do it, so let's get started using Captivate to build a software simulation.
