Senior eLearning Instructional Designer
You do your best to make the most visually pleasing eLearning you can—but, let’s face it, your strengths are in eLearning and instructional design, not graphic design or copywriting. Yet, not only your fine content influences a learner’s perception of online courses, but also the course’s look-and-feel, tone of voice, and visual appeal . Whether you are a one-person eLearning department or you collaborate with a team, this session showcases how using Adobe Captivate’s workflows, styles, and customizable objects can save you time and create a more visually appealing and consistent course. This is not a step-by-step “how to” session, but an overview of what’s possible for taking eLearning “from drab to fab.”
This case-study session shows how one eLearning instructional designer approached her company’s creative department for help in making an eLearning course more visually appealing and in line with the company look-and-feel and tone of voice. The creative team was able to mock up templates, objects, and graphics in Adobe Photoshop that she could either import directly into Captivate or set up as customizable objects, including branded buttons and correct-and-incorrect quiz captions. She also used an often-unsung Captivate document workflow to make her collaboration with the copywriters a snap! You’ll learn how Adobe Captivate gives you the ability to collaborate with others, leverage powerful workflows with tools like Photoshop and MS Word, and customize objects.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to quickly edit the text in your course using the Captivate↔MS Word workflow
- How to use the powerful Captivate↔Photoshop workflows to enhance the graphics in your course
- How to use master slides for a consistent layout
- How to create custom buttons and captions
Novice and intermediate designers and developers familiar with creating courses in Adobe Captivate and who want to make their courses more visually appealing.
