Adobe Captivate

Duration: 2 Days, 4 Modules
Module Price: $180

Course Overview

With the Adobe Captivate software, you can quickly create professional “eLearning” content (presentations and/or full motion video) with interactivity, software and scenario simulations, quizzes, and other engaging experiences with no programming or multimedia skills required. You will also learn how to boost your productivity with templates and collaboration workflows. This 2 day training course covers all the essentials and then some, with additional “lab time” to practice with your instructor available, to get you on your way to creating your own professional looking presentations, demonstrations, and interactive lessons and quizzes using Adobe Captivate.
