8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Tuesday, September 29


Responsive design is one of the most common phrases used in the context of mobile learning. But can you use responsive design to simultaneously create mobile and desktop-based projects? Of course you can, and using the features of Adobe Captivate 8 makes it easier than you think. However, effective design goes beyond just the features of the tool: there are also crucial design and development issues that you must address.

In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to build excellent eLearning projects using Adobe Captivate 8 that work in both mobile and desktop environments. You will build a project one step at a time and explore why each step along the way is necessary. You will explore the features that Captivate provides that will help you create projects that respond appropriately to different devices. You will leave this workshop with a real prototype project to take home and reuse as you wish.
