In follow-up of the descriptive table with Learning Interactions which I published some weeks ago, you'll find in this new post a typical use case for the dropdown interaction, its associated variable and its new possibility to control the display by an action. Have a look at:

There is no difference between HTML5 and SWF output, except for the few objects (rollovers) and effects that are not supported in HTML5. What is "good elearning"? My standards are pretty high, due to my long career as a college professor trying to engage and personalize learning for students. Most of the real good eLearning will not be public for many reasons. Interactivity and avoiding boring, linear content in the PPT-way, bullets (meant for presentations, not for eLearning), use of media (good quality audio very important) can lead to good results, provided there is follow-up and ways to communicate with peers and coaches. This ideal situation is very seldom realized which I regret a lot.

Branch aware Quiz: Since version 8 Branch Aware has been added as Quiz feature. In this blog post I illustrate the behavior of this feature and the differences with a normal Quiz. You can also learn how to use Shared/Advanced actions to have a localized dashboard and score slide.
Intro A recent question on the forum (Duplicate Quizzing) and my plan to write an e-book dedicated to Captivate Quizzes is the reason for this post. Forum user wanted small quizzes in different...

In Captivate 8.0.1 color management has improved, but to find the proper work flow starting with an Adobe Color scheme (ase) created with Adobe Color and transforming it to a reusable Theme Colors palette is not that intuitive. If you want to learn about my way of handling this, have a look at my latest blog post:

IntroColor management in Adobe Captivate is improving slowly but steadily. Too bad: the Help documentation is not offering much explanation about color workflows at all. Have a look at what is...

Monday 13th of October, an important patch was released for Adobe Captivate 8, upgrading it to version 8.0.1.242. Do not believe it is only a minor patch, besides bug fixes it offers nice new features.
My first article about this new version, doesn't talk about 'what is new' but I tried to explain my work flow to avoid losing custom items (workspaces, effects, theme colors...) when upgrading. I hurried to publish it, because you have to read that before upgrading. Sorry, early adopters.
IntroToday an important patch for version 8 was released, to upgrade to version 8.0.1.242. Like with the update to 7 I wonder why this is not a full 8.1 or even 8.5 because there are not only a lot...

It is very strange, but there is very little published about Shared Actions, new feature in #AdobeCaptivate  since version 7. In many use cases they should be preferred over advanced actions. This blog post shows an example of a MatchStick game, where shared as well as advanced actions are used depending on the situation.

IntroThis post is inspired by a question on the Captivate forum, have a look at this thread: 'Advanced actions for a Matchstick Game'. After reading the question, I accepted the challenge. Some...

Captivate 8 ships with a bunch of Learning interactions, new name for widgets that are compatible with HTML5 output. Documentation in the official Adobe documents is scarce. In this blog post I offer a free descriptive table, divided in my personal categories, and some tips for using the interactions. The usual included movie illustrates using some new features of the Checkbox and Radiobutton interactions, that make them superior to the former widgets with the same name. Have a look at:
http://blog.lilybiri.com/tips-learning-interactions
IntroCaptivate 8 has included several learning interactions, that are not well documented in the official Help. You'll be able to download a descriptive table at the end of this article. In the...

Use of Theme Colors in Captivate 8? Bit mysterious, and I like exploring mysteries. Have a look at my conclusions in this post. Learn how those 10 colors are used in the default theme, how the 'tints' are created on the base colors, how you can apply them in learning interactions:

Yesterday I published an article about creating custom hotspot questions in Adobe Captivate 8. An inserted SWF shows two examples of custom hotspot questions with more functionality than the default questions of that type.

Because there are quite a lot of questions on the Captivate forums about the Drag and Drop interaction, I did write an article with three small tips about labeling, creation of a success message and the use of shared actions as object actions. Have a look at:

IntroSince Drag&Drop appeared, there are many questions on the forums about them. Although the wizard is an easy way to create quickly a simple interaction, once you explore its functionality more...

The traditional way for creating a custom button in Adobe Captivate is a bit cumbersome. Since version 6 you can turn any image into a shape button, that has a lot of advantages over normal buttons: timing for the rest of the project, use on master slides, question slides, score slides are possible for shape buttons but not for any other interactive object. In this blog post I give you a step-by-step tutorial to create such a shape button. 
IntroThis will be a short tip to explain how you can quickly turn an image into a shape button. I had to explain this already multiple times and wonder why this easy work flow seems to remain a...
