Join Pooja Jaisingh for an in-depth discussion in this video Responsive elearning design, part of Adobe Captivate 9 First Look.
- Adobe Captivate 9 makes it even simpler to create responsive e-learning courses. You can now have up to five break points for your responsive e-learning courses and the content flows seamlessly across all these break points. When you create a new responsive project, you will see break points for desktop, for tablet portrait, and for mobile portrait. To add more break points, go ahead and click the plus sign. You can also delete these additional break points at any time by clicking the Delete Selected Break Point button.
To change the size of the break point, you can now double click this hard text and enter a new value. You can do the same for the break point name. If you don't wish your learners to see content on mobile devices in landscape mode, you can change the settings in the Preferences dialogue. Let's go ahead and check it out. I'll go to Edit, Preferences. Go to the Project, Publish Settings, here, select Disallow phone landscape orientation. And you can also modify the message for the learners, if required.
In Adobe Captivate 9, you can now also center align the objects horizontally or vertically. Just select the object, right click, and select Align, Center horizontally on the slide, or Center vertically on the slide, or both. This option is also available on the position inspector under Advanced tab. You can now also apply position properties to the items of the same type or the same style.
Also multi-formatted text and hyperlink text will also flow well across break points. In Captivate 8, you could disable or enable the gestures for the entire project. But now, with Adobe Captivate 9, you can disable or enable gesture navigation at slide level. This is especially useful for your interactive or brand slides. So go ahead and create responsive e-learning courses, and let the content flow.
