Adobe Captivate 7.0 - The Basics

This is a beginner's course (see course description below). No prior experience with Captivate is needed or assumed. The course covers all the topics that are normally addressed in Adobe’s two-day basic Captivate course.

You must bring your own laptop. PC is preferred since there have been reported bugs using Captivate on the Mac version. The training manual, Adobe Captivate 7: The Essentials by Kevin Siegel, will be used during the class and can be purchased on for about $40. 

Please bring a memory stick and your own refreshments. There is a cafeteria at Essex County College, if need be. 

If you do not own or wish to purchase Captivate 7, it is recommended that you download the 30-day free trial one or two days before the first class so that you have access to the software for the duration of the course. 

You must download the software prior to the class. It can take up to 2 hours. Also, there are files that will be used during the class that need to be downloaded. Adobe calls these "Assets."
