How does a OneNote Notebook work? A notebook is a container for a set of pages. Each notebook is divided into sections, and each section has pages.

How does Adobe Captivate work? Captivate builds and edits interactive software demonstrations, simulations, podcasts, games, program demos and lessons. For software demos, it can either record in real time or use an event-based screen capture that snaps a sequence of still images and then builds mouse movement simulations to create the appearance of a running program. Captivate users can edit Captivate presentations to add captions, clickable hotspots, text entry boxes, rollovers etc. Authors can edit the content (including mouse pointer path, position, image) and change the timing for each item to appear and disappear. Captivate supports the import of still images, PowerPoint, video,.flv, and audio tracks onto any Captivate slide.
