2 2) OVERVIEW

3 High-definition Screencast (record video and publish immediately to YouTube, social media or as MP4s) HTML5 Publishing (output compatible with Apple products!) Pre-tests and Branch Aware Quizzes (based on results, learner is directed to certain screens) Remediation (based on quiz answer, student is looped back to an appropriate place in the tutorial)

4 Themes (for the visually-design- challenged, like me!) Smart shapes (that you can convert to buttons!) Smart learning interactions (widgets) Character Images Round trip w/ PowerPoint (& stay synced)

5 Images Animations Audio files Characters Quizzes Widgets Actions

6 There are many project assets installed with the program These are contained in the Gallery

8 eLearning Assets NeoSpeechTM text-to-speech voices http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/ind ex.cfm?product=captivate

9 Start Captivate with a right click & select Run as Administrator Captivate uses lots of RAM – you will sometimes see the (Not Responding) message – wait it out! Best to add audio later, during production (rather than while recording) Use the smallest recording size possible – keeps the finished project smaller. Try for 800x600 if you can.

10 Welcome Screen Many familiar menus Manipulating the workspace Themes Preview a project Let’s take a closer look…

12 3) STARTING A PROJECT & IMPORTING/RECORDING

13

14 All aspects of the PowerPoint file will be imported: images, animations, transitions, audio, etc. Settings –Set Resolution to 800x600 –On Mouse Click –Select “Linked”

15 A great way to practice with some of the basic settings and tools Inserting standard objects Setting properties Slide Transitions Working With Images

16 Process: 1.Write your script (so you know what to do) 2.Rehearse 3.Reset (if necessary) 4.Record 5.Produce

17 Can simply insert screen shots taken using SnagIt or any other software Captivate has 3 modes –Automatic – new screen capture each time you click your mouse –Manual – you must press specific key to get screen shot –Video – not individual screen capture

18 4) PRODUCTION BASICS

19 Highlight Box – to draw attention Text Captions – to covey information Smart Shapes & Animation Rollover Areas, Captions & Slidelets Buttons – to make something happen –Text –Image –Transparent Basic

20 Text Entry Field Click Boxes Question Slides Variables Widgets Interactions Actions

22 5) WORKING WITH AUDIO

23 WAV files – very big MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer III) – compressed Captivate comes with many sound files (In the Gallery) Free sound clips at http://www.grsites.com/sounds

24 Object Audio Slide Audio Background Audio

25 Narrate as you record the screen Import with PowerPoint file Add audio later –Record all at once –Record one slide at a time –Record to a specific object (then add rollover?) –Import Slide notes –Can be displayed when recording voiceovers (this can be your script) –Text-to-Speech

28 Silence is golden Try to reduce echo & background noise Microphone tips –4-6 inches from mouth –Above, point down toward mouth –Just to side of mouth (softens s and p sounds) Calibrate your microphone! It does make a difference!

30 6) PUBLISHING, TESTING & POSTING

31 Output as –SWF (Small Web Format) –HTML5 –PDF Set a Pre-Loader (for slow connections) Export Captions for easy editing & collaboration

32 Create a Table of Contents Publish to You Tube, LMS –Each LMS is different –Cp6 works better with Blackboard –Your technical support will help with this
