Well, before we start using Captivate to create our eLearning project, we…should get familiar with the user interface, which has changed slightly from previous versions,…and if you're brand new to Captivate, you will definitely want to get…comfortable in your surroundings before you start working.…When you launch Captivate, the very first thing you're going to see is this…welcome screen, by default.…And on the welcome screen, you have an opportunity to quickly access recent…projects that you've worked on;…you can open existing projects from here as well.…And you'll notice over here on the right-hand side, you get a head start creating…new projects as well;…could be a blank project from scratch.…
But if you're creating video demos, or software simulations, you get a nice…head start by selecting from this list on the right-hand side.…You can choose From Template, or even create your own project templates from here as well.…There is some help down at the bottom left-hand corner;…there are Tutorials, New Features are covered, as well as a Getting Started section.…
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.
