How to customize a Splash screen for its customers and mobile / tablet learning solutions

When we develop a WebApp or a mobile application (Android or Apple) we usually develop a screen called “Splash screen” that appears before the loading of the application. This screen identifies the project that is being launched and can display a title, an illustration, a learning objective, a company’s logo or other.

With Captivate a screen with a white background and an arrow is generated by default when we publish a responsive project, so this video shows how to customize this screen in order that users, trainees, customers are able to immediately identify the application they are launching as they can do it when they launch their WebApps or Android / Apple mobile applications.

As teaching aid this video uses a responsive project made with fluid boxes.
