Analog Clock with Captivate (V2)

Hello Captivaters !…

Today I want to share with you a project about time…

I already had tried to make a nice project with an analogic clock :

But I wasn’t so pleased as the small pin (indicating the hour) didn’t behave properly between two fixed hours…

Encouraged by my mentor Greg, (See his recent post here : ), the awesomes videos viewed during the Adobe recent event ( ),
my current experience with Captivate, I thought it was time to make it better.

I just finished this new version for this platform, adapted from a version I use in my virtual french school.


I had some fun trying to play with some options of Captivate I rarely used…

Have fun with Captivate !…

How to Be a REAL E-Learning Hero

Did you know that every two seconds, someone needs blood? And one donation can save up to three lives?

2020 has been a challenging year. And on top of it, the news media seems to focus on all the discord and hardship. Where’s the good news? What can we do to make a difference in our little part of the universe?

How to be an E-Learning Hero

Every week we feature various e-learning challenges. The goal is to use the e-learning tools in different ways. Move past the compliance projects we do at work and do something different.

This helps us gain mastery over the e-learning tools, play around with various interactive prototypes, and get inspiration from seeing what others can do.

If you don’t participate, you should. At a minimum, you should check out the round up that David does every Thursday. There’s always some creative ideas that may inspire something for your next project.

Recently, we did a challenge to promote blood donations. Here’s a link to the round up with a bunch of nice examples.

Here are a few key thoughts:

  • There’s more than one way to do things. What I love most about the challenge entries is that it shows there’s a lot of creative ways to do the same thing.
  • Keep your design clean and focused. We tend to be info-centric and push a lot of content out. Try to minimize content on the screen and control when and how it’s exposed.
  • Where’s the personality? Many of the challenges feature facts and various levels of interactivity. The ones that stood out to me are the ones wrapped around stories and people. What’s the story in your e-learning courses?
  • There are a lot of nice examples, my favorite is this one by Przemyslaw Hubisz. I like the simple and clean design; and that the activity is contextually meaningful. It makes me consider the point of the information being presented to me.

If you want to grow your skills using the e-learning software and building interactions, the challenges are a great way to do that. If you’re a beginner or more advanced, doesn’t matter. The challenges work for where you’re at and it’s not a competition. It’s all about you.

How to be a REAL Hero

Blood and platelets cannot be manufactured. They can only come from volunteer donors. And not everyone can donate, so everyone who can plays an important role.

Can you donate?

I’ll have to admit, it’s not always on my radar. But I was reading an article recently that reminded me how important it is. And while I can’t control a lot of what’s going on in the world today, I can control what I do and how I share what I have. Because of that, I’ve made a commitment to donate blood regularly.

Hopefully it’s something you can to do, too. Find out where you can donate blood today.

Join us in the e-learning challenges to grow your skills. Join us in donating blood to be a hero to someone who needs it.

Hyperlink Feature Disappeared

Hi the icon for hyperlinks disappeared. I’ve renamed the file and no luck. If I open a brand new file the icon is there. I’ve tried shapes and text. I’ve tried fresh new slides and no luck. What can be done? It won’t allow me to upload the zip. I tested the zip on SCORM Cloud and can upload the zip there.

State View Query

I have received a Captivate 2019 file, created by a 3rd party and I am trying to update it. There is a slide with multiple state view objects which the user clicks on, it turns green and text is displayed explaining the object. When all objects have been clicked on, the Next button is displayed for the user to move to the next slide.

To update the content, I have added another object which also needs to turn green when clicked. I believe I have copied all the steps set up for the other objects but this new one just does not turn green when clicked. However when all the objects have been clicked, I can move to the next slide. Any thoughts on what I might have missed?

Many thanks
