If you have to create Captivate eLearning assets respecting brand colors and design rules, you can choose to create either a custom theme or a custom template. You are hesitating about that choice? I tried to clarify the difference in this new post:
http://blog.lilybiri.com/whats-in-a-theme-a-template
IntroWhen trying to help Captivate users, I often bump onto confusion between themes and templates. Same confusion can be found in many training schedules and books. There has been a lot of...

Drag&Drop has enhancements in version 9 of Adobe Captivate. In this new blog post I explain the new InBuilt states for Drag sources and Drop targets: possibilities and limitations. Have a look at:
IntroAs promised in a previous article, I explored the enhancements to Drag&Drop in Captivate 9, more specifically added InBuilt States. In previous versions only buttons and shape buttons had...

Timesaver in #AdobeCaptivate  9 for Toggle buttons. Try out this work flow, using a single shared action to create toggles for totally different purposes.
IntroIn the past I wrote some posts about creating Toggle buttons. The oldest article explained the use of an Expression and a system variable for a button that kept the same style but could turn...

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:

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:
http://blog.lilybiri.com/theme-colors
Intro In my previous post I explained the work flow to create a custom Theme Colors palette, starting from an Adobe Color palette (ase). Theme Colors palettes can be applied to any theme, they...

With version 9.0.1, Adobe Captivate finally adopted the Adobe Rulers and Guides, a long awaited feature! In this blog post, I show some possible use cases while developing Captivate courses, themes and templates:

Out of the box Captivate is not providing a Replay Slide button. In this blog post I describe two possible scenarios, and provide a simple, shared action that you can use for all your projects.
IntroThis pretty short article will explain several ways to create a button that will replay a slide from its first frame and is functional on that slide only. The reason is that I have been asked...

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.
http://blog.lilybiri.com/matchstick-game-shared-actions
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...

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...
