DevLearn 2018 Conference & Expo - October 25, 2018

Dona Parker

Instructional Designer

Software and system simulations created in tools such as Captivate are a great way to engage learners and provide visual demonstrations. But when developer access to live systems is limited or system updates are frequent, creating and maintaining such simulations can be time-consuming and difficult. But what if there was a way to simulate simulation?

Creating the illusion of a simulation using PowerPoint and the Adobe Presenter plug-in is not only a viable solution, but in many cases may be a better solution in terms of both creation and maintenance. In this session, you will explore how to build a simulation using screenshots, PowerPoint animation, and the Adobe Presenter plug-in. Narrating and publishing Presenter files will also be demonstrated.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create the illusion of a simulation video
  • Tips for creating realistic demos
  • How to sync audio and animation
  • Publishing settings and how to use them
