Course description

Captivate 9 Intro

Create powerful e-learning content for your LMS that will inspire and engage learners. Produce applications, videos and software demonstrations with ease.

Adobe Captivate 9 is the version of this popular and powerful tool for creating interactive eLearning applications, online training videos and software demonstrations.

This practical Adobe authorised two-day course covers how to record your actions in any software application and design and build engaging eLearning content.

Adobe Captivate 9 enables you to rapidly-produce a wide range of Flash and HTML5 based eLearning content. You can easily create branched soft-skills courses, application simulations and quizzes incorporate YouTube video and live web pages. The final output can be published to the web, video or an LMS.

Our public courses are taught on Captivate 9, however, if you are interested in learning Captivate 2017 or Captivate 2019 this is something we can arrange.

You need no previous experience to attend this course.

Great facilities in general.

I learnt a lot of useful tips about Captivate. The trainer, Alan, was very friendly and approachable. The centre itself was excellent - it was well organised and the staff were very helpful. I liked that our group had our own table to sit at throughout the day. The food and refreshments were excellent.
