This course is third in our 3-part series covering e-learning rapid authoring tools. This two-day session teaches you how to create effective, engaging e-learning from start to finish, taking you from the very basics up to insider tips and secrets that even experienced developers don't know.  Whether you are an intermediate user looking to pick up a few extra tricks, a beginner just getting started, or someone just curious about the possibilities, this course is for you!

Adobe Captivate is the most widely used authoring tool for creating simulations and practices of computer procedures.  On the first day you'll learn how to create sit-back-and-watch computer simulations as well as try-it-yourself interactive practices.  On the second day you'll learn how to use the other features to create any kind of content you want. Participants will receive a copy of the upcoming book, E-Learning Uncovered: Captivate 5.5.
