Join Anastasia McCune for an in-depth discussion in this video Rehearsing a simulation, part of Captivate Projects: Software Simulations.
…One of the best things you can do before recording a software…simulation in Captivate, is rehearse the steps that you want to show.…And while there's nothing wrong with having to stop a recording in the middle,…and starting over, your recording session will…go much more smoothly if you've practiced first.…You'll probably refine your steps in ways you didn't think of as well.…Here we're going to practice the steps for a Captivate recording, that will make…up the project that we're going to work on in the rest of the course.…To follow along, just open up the Excel file in the exercise file for this lesson.…
Now our project is going to show someone how to…fill out this Excel sheet, in order to come up…with a single number that shows how much it will…cost to install a solar panel system on their home.…That figure shows up here near the bottom of our spreadsheet, figure b37.…As you can see there's a lot of figures…floating around that play a part in that number.…Some are at the top of the spreadsheet, and some are in the bottom part.…
In this project-based course with Captivate expert Anastasia McCune, learn how to record software simulations for your company or elearning project with Captivate. Discover how to plan, record, format, and adjust interactions for your simulation—elements that will make the training more realistic and intuitive—and publish the simulation where students can reach it.
