Captivate Training Overview

Accelebrate's Comprehensive Adobe Captivate 2019 training course teaches attendees how to create interactive eLearning content from scratch. Students learn how to record and produce software demonstrations, create interactive training simulations, and build quizzes. Participants can then publish their Captivate project to any device, including desktop computers, laptops, smart phones, and tablets.

Attendees then learn the more sophisticated functionality of Adobe Captivate. Students learn how to create responsive, cross-device eLearning lessons and how to fine-tune their production skills by using object styles, master slides, themes, advanced actions, and a wide array of other useful tools.
