LS811 B.Y.O.L.: Using the Scary Stuff in Adobe Captivate 9—Variables and Actions

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Thursday, March 17


Palm 4

The difference between a novice and an expert Captivate developer primarily falls in knowing things like when and how to create user variables, system variables, and shared actions. Impossible, you say? You’ll never be able to wrap your head around these topics?

Don’t be frightened. Even if you’re new to Captivate, or using prior versions of the tool, come and learn! That big impenetrable wall you seem to see has a door in it that you can just walk through if you have the key to unlock it. In this hands-on session you will gain a deeper understanding of these activities and functions and be provided with real example files and additional resources. Come with your questions, and if you don’t know what to ask, come anyway and just soak it all in!

In this session, you will learn:

  • When and how to create user variables and system variables
  • When to use simple actions and how to create standard advanced actions
  • When and how to create conditional advanced actions
  • When and how to create shared actions
  • When and how to use JavaScript in Captivate
