This workshop will introduce participants to the latest technology in multimedia creation by Macromedia- Captivate. This software enables the designer to produce authoritative demonstrations, simulations, and presentations in a short time frame. The workshop will expound upon the core of Macromedia’s timeline technology to generate a fully functioning multimedia project. Captivate, the latest screen capture program, provides innovative ways to create rich tutorials, simulate instruction, and enhance presentations. Macromedia Captivate has replaced the RoboDemo? software that once facilitated the development of simulations. This innovative software has taken the development of online multimedia to a superior level by making the process more user-friendly. This workshop will introduce the latest technology in online multimedia software: Macromedia Captivate. PowerPoint has been the presentation, simulation, and demonstration software of choice for most Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). However, most agree that it is not a predominant or even user-friendly electronic learning tool. Macromedia Flash is a great electronic learning tool, but in order to produce highly developed Flash movies it requires an advanced understanding of the software. Captivate allows the learner to easily design, develop, and implement a demonstration without understanding the advanced features of the Flash software. The workshop session will introduce the learner to the basic components of the Macromedia Flash format as relative to the Captivate program. In addition, the workshop will explore the Captivate work environment, the process of creating movies, timelines and objects, and explore its use as an instructional tool. Captivate streamlines the process of creating a rich learning experience, simulation, or demonstration, and thus the workshop is for anyone with an interest in online multimedia development. All learners are strongly encouraged to attend, even if they have little or no prior knowledge of Flash or Flash programming.
