If part of your project here in Captivate 6 is going to be instructing users on…how to use a specific piece of software, maybe a feature within that software,…you can record software stimulation, and unlike recording software that's out…there, you're actually creating a simulation where you're going to see the mouse tracking,…you are going to have interactions showing up, entering text into fields,…selecting menus, etcetera.…And that's what we're going to do right now. We're going to do it actually…right inside of our existing project, the Volunteer_Orientation project we've been working on.…
If you haven't been following along with me, and you need to get caught up, go…to the Chapter4 folder of your Exercise Files, and open up…Volunteer_orientation_SAMOCA21. And now we want to show people how to contact us via our Web site.…So to do that, we will actually record a simulation using the Web site, and the…first thing we need to do is prep it by, first of all, switching to our browser.…Now, for me, that's Safari.…
The course shows how to make a presentation from scratch or with built-in themes, import Photoshop images and PowerPoint slides, and add interest with animation, widgets, and video. It also demonstrates how to prepare for and record a software simulation, synchronize video, add audio, and build quizzes into your project.
