Captivate 8 Vs 10 (2017 version)

Hello,I need to use Captivate for an upcoming project. I have used Captivate 8 before, but now I have the option to install Captivate 10. Should I go for the 10 version because its latest? Or can I use 8 because I have already worked on it and quite familiar with the functionalities?

TIA

Fast Start with the New Adobe Captivate

I’m so excited about the new Adobe Captivate because it helps me create learning experiences to support screen based learning. I’m working with software developers that roll out updates a couple times a month. The training approach that I’m using includes Captivate as a tool for creating video and interactive learning demonstrations to guide the learner through the new functions.

I’ve also been using Adobe Captivate to support a focus on real time learning where I can work with a subject matter expert and capture the demonstrations in real time. I’m looking forward to sharing out future work here in the Adobe eLearning Community.

Stay tuned…

Flash & The Future of Interactive Content for eLearning

Adobe has long played a leadership role in advancing interactivity and creative content – from video, to games and more – on the web.

But as open standards like HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly have matured over the past several years, most now provide many of the capabilities and functionalities that plugins pioneered and have become a viable alternative for content on the web.

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including AppleFacebookGoogleMicrosoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

The full excerpt of this announcement is available here – https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2017/07/adobe-flash-update.html

If you are an Adobe customer creating eLearning content, here is a quick guide to understanding what it means for you:

– Will Flash content stop working on our content in production now?

While Adobe has announced the end-of-life of Flash, the distribution of the Flash Player will only end in 3 years from now. This date is contingent to our browser technology partners supporting it.

– Are eLearning users adopting HTML5?

67% of Adobe Captivate Users have tried the HTML5 format both for mobile and desktop browsers. The adoption curve has grown from a 15% to 67% in the past 3 years.

How can you migrate your existing content to HTML5?

You can migrate your existing content using Adobe Captivate using your existing project (.cptx) files . You can choose HTML5 as the output format and re-publish them to HTML5, which would work for both desktop and mobile browsers. This will work across previous product versions that have support for HTML5 output.
