Captivate: Software Demo

Tool: Adobe Captivate

Category: eLearning, Presentation

Description: Adobe Captivate creates interactive presentations for learning purposes. It’s commonly used to create eLearning modules.

Application/Example:
This is a video portfolio that demonstrates my work and experience. I recorded my projects with narration in Adobe Captivate, edited the audio, and added fades, text captions, and text animation.

Another project I created with Captivate is this software demonstration that shows users how to log on to a learning management system. I created an instructional design document to determine the learning objectives and then made a storyboard of the scenes to prepare for recording the presentation. I recorded and edited the demo in Adobe Captivate, adding zooming, highlights, text captions and mouse clicks.

I wouldn’t be an Instructional Designer if I didn’t have an urge to share with you how I created this final video!

I scripted and used storyboards to determine what I wanted to say and what corresponding assets/ images would be included.  I kept in mind that my audience of busy professionals and instructional designers would only have an attention span of 2-4 minutes.

After the design phase was complete, I filmed the “talking head” portions using my iPhone (iOS6), an Olloclip iPhone Camera Lens, and the App FiLMiC Pro. I was also lit. Once I gathered footage and B-roll, Adobe Premiere Pro was used to edit the final video.

To share it with the world, I added the final video to my YouTube page, posted publicly but disabling comments. I used the Embed option under the Share feature to insert the video source into my Web site. And Voila! There we have it!
