Many elearning designers and developers find themselves saying yes to complex interactions before they truly know if they can create the advanced learning solutions required. After agreeing to a project, developers find these difficult and time-consuming to create. Often deadlines are not met because the complexity has overwhelmed the developer and they need more time to get the interaction to work as expected. But what if you could be shown a way to build these advanced interactions in a matter of minutes instead of hours? What if you could confidently attend that design meeting with your stakeholder and say yes to all their requests?

In this session, you will learn how to build your Captivate eLearning utility belt and just like comic book superheroes, you will be able to pull out exactly what you need for each complex interaction in minutes instead of hours. By reusing your solutions from your eLearning utility belt, you will not only meet the expectations of your stakeholders but deliver your projects on or before the deadline. Session attendees will walk away with the skills to create three types of custom interactions like click to reveals, content carousels, and custom knowledge check questions, as well as the instructions to make dozens more.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to build a click to reveal using advanced actions saved as shared actions that you can reuse by simply copying and pasting
  • How to create variations of the click to reveal to allow you to have versions of this interaction for every situation
  • How to build a content carousel interaction using advanced actions saved as shared action that you can reuse by simply copying and pasting
  • How to create variations for the content carousel to allow you to have enough variations needed for every situation
  • How to create a custom multiple-choice question using advanced actions saved as shared actions that you can reuse by simply copying and pasting
