How to turn video into deep learning

Wenn heute nach Trends im Online-Lernen gefragt wird, stehen Videos bzw. kurze Erklärfilme hoch im Kurs. Doch funktionieren Videos als Lernangebote auch? Donald Clark erinnert in seinem Beitrag vor allem an das Zusammenspiel von Kurzzeit- und Langzeitgedächtnis:

„Quite simple, we engage in teaching, whether offline or online, to get things into long-term memory via working memory. You must take this learning theory into account when designing video content. When using video we tend to forget about working memory as a limitation and the absence of opportunity to move working memory experiences into long-term memory.  We also tend to shove in material that is more suited to other media, semantic content such as facts, figures and conceptual manipulations. So video is often too long, shows points too quickly and is packed with inappropriate content.“

Welche Konsequenzen bedeutet das für den Einsatz von Video? Donald Clark erklärt, dass es flankierende Maßnahmen braucht („The mistake is to see video as a learning medium in itself.“) und führt drei Punkte näher aus: „The first is repeated access to the video …“; „The second is to take notes …“; „The third, is far more effective and that is to engage in a form of deeper, effortful learning that involves retrieval and recall. …“ Hier kommt AI ins Spiel und eine hauseigene Lösung des Autors. Ein interessanter Beitrag, der sehr anschaulich Grundlagenwissen mit einem aktuellen Trend verbindet.

Adobe Captivate 2019 Training for Beginners

FasterCourse ( has been working with Captivate for quite some time now and we know that it takes time to learn everything by yourself as Captivate provides a lot of good and advanced elearning features. As we came across the same questions from our users every day about ‘where can I find the objects’ or ‘why can’t I see the popups in a slide’, we realized that a lot of people who start using Captivate are struggling on their own and a little guidance would be helpful.

We created 7 videos about all the necessary things you need to know in order to feel confident while working in Adobe Captivate.

1. Getting Started

In this video, we will cover the first steps on how to open the file and save a project and slowly we will move on to some of the necessary tools that you will need while working with Adobe Captivate 2019. You will learn how the timeline works and how you can show and hide elements in your slide.

2. Masterslide & Object Styles

We will walk you through master slide view and object styles. You will see how easy it is to add objects in the master slide so they would be visible in all slides. Together we will create a new object style that you will later use to improve the look and feel of your project with a few simple clicks.

3. Create Text and Image Slides

In this video, you will learn how to add new slides to your project and how to change the master slide for each slide. We will add text fields and images and with previously built styles we will get a nice looking text and image slide in a few minutes.

4. Build a Simple Video Slide

Video slides are wildly popular, we will show you how you can add video slide to your project and how easy it is to change the player.

5. Single Choice Question Slide

Together we will add a new question slide to this project and we will show you how easy you can add new answer options or change the question form from single to multiple choice with one click. We will show you how you can set the correct answer and where you can find all feedbacks.

6. Build a Drag and Drop Slide

Step by step we will show you how the drag and drop interactions are made. We will create all objects and you will see how you can set the correct answers and add more answer options.

7. Publish Your Course in SCORM

This is one of the most important steps and we will show you where you can change publish settings and how you can publish your course in SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004.

Exercise Files

You can also download the exercise file for this class. Click here and below the video, you will find a button to download the file. The package consists of one Adobe Captivate 2019 file with the final version of this task.

We really hope that this little guide might help someone who has recently entered the world of Captivate! Let us know what you think!
