Captivate expert Adam Cannon joined us for a webinar covering the wonderful world of Captivate 2019. He shared some tips and tricks to make your eLearning design easier.

This webinar recording covers:

  • Utilizing Master Slides
  • Working with graphics and media files
  • Utilizing fluid boxes to create responsive courses
  • Accessing the vast library of resources available within the asset library

Master Slides

As Adam explains in the webinar, Master Slides are like a mini-template, or a template for a slide (as opposed to your whole project). Master Slides are a great way to create a layout and then apply it to multiple slides. Captivate includes pre-built Master Slides, but you can create your own as well. Watch the recording below to see how.

Fluid Boxes

A fluid box is essentially holder of objects, graphics, text, etc. Fluid boxes replace mobile development using breakpoints. Before you start any project, think about the layout of your fluid boxes. Do you want the content to flow horizontally or vertically and how do you want content to wrap or align? Play around with fluid boxes and you’ll quickly get a feel for how they work.

Watch the recording now to get the rest of Adam’s Captivate tips and how-tos:
