When you limit your design to the default question slides in Captivate, the result can often be a boring assessment. Being aware of the basics of these slide designs and of the quizzing system variables allows developers to extend the functionality of the default slides. By tweaking these default slides you can create simple games that can turn a basic quiz into a challenging experience.

In this hands-on session you will go beyond the basic template of a Captivate question slide and explore ways to enhance the default interaction. You will examine techniques including replacing text with image or audio, knowledge slides, remediation, intermediate score slides, control navigation, drag and drop, scored objects, and more. You will also clarify the process, possibilities, and limitations of the Captivate questions slide template.

In this session, you will learn:

  • To understand the default process and objects in question and score slide
  • To know the quizzing system variables
  • How to add intermediate score slides and shape buttons
  • The use of the advanced interaction panel
  • How to create custom question slides based on widgets or interactions
  • How to create custom question slides with standard objects
