How to get better at Captivate?

Must Read

I’ve tried various resources to improve my Captivate Skills. Of course, what works for you will depend on your preferences. Do you like a comprehensive baseline overview before you start? Or would you rather jump in at the deep end and search for guidance on specifics, as the need arises? I like a bit of both. Here are notes from my personal experience.

Baseline

Type Resource Benefits Bear in mind
Paid online course and certification The Adobe Certified Professional
  • Clear, comprehensive beginner/intermediate videos + downloadable projects
  • Optional human trainer
  • Nice interface and progress-tracking via Captivate Prime LMS
  • can pass exam and be award certification badge at the end
  • Adobe official, via partner Carahsoft
  • $499-$999 investment
  • A thorough overview, but does not get into advanced tricks and workarounds?
Third party book Mastering Adobe Captivate 2019(Also involves Dr. Pooja Jaisingh. Same as above)
  • Choice of physical book or ebook
  • Good value buying ebook direct from Packt
  • If you buy physical, check the edition. (currently fifth)
  • Buying from non-Packt retailer (eg. Amazon) does not give discount on ebook

Specifics

Type Resource Benefits Bear in mind
Youtube and web eg. Paul Wilson is great
  • Free! (with ads)
  • Small optional subscription ($5/month) for download projects and Q&A
  • Includes advanced tricks and workarounds
  • New content every week
  • Youtube search works very well
  • Youtube suggested off-topic videos may distract you
  • Online only
Online community https://elearning.adobe.com/
  • You are here!
  • Lots of nice people
  • Opportunity for you to give back, by sharing your own discoveries, innovations and experiences

Another top tip: Video Playback speed

Both the Adobe Certified course and Youtube allow video playback speed adjustment (click the cog). I find 1.5x perfectly understandable, and it saves time. Try it! 😊
