This is the most amazing software I have used there are lots of features but the thing I like about Adobe Captivate is that it has got webcam feature which lets you connect with your learners affectively is very easy to use and the best thing that learners can easily navigate and see the learning calendar which helps in scheduling course while training. This app is used in my organization for connecting and training and trust me it has great features. Adobe products have very good interface including this software moreover you can customize courses as it suits you. This Software is interactive allowing the end user to simulate the software. The recording function is easy to use. Edits are simple. And As a registered Adobe user, I like the fact that I can create assets within the Adobe Creative Suite and then use them within Adobe Captivate LMS. The quality is very high in Adobe so I recommend the integration of Adobe assets with this LMS

We use Adobe Captivate to design self paced eLearning for our staff and administrators. These courses are used to supplement our in person professional development. We also use Captivate to develop courses that are required in our industry. This helps to ensure compliance with our state laws and local school board regulations. Captivate has been our go to eLearning software for many years.

I use Adobe Captivate to build customized eLearning for companies. Sometimes the units are for a wide audience such as for new hire orientation, while other times the lessons are for a small and specialized group of roles. It's been shown that when adult learners have some control over their progression, that they are more likely to engage with the material. So I strongly appreciate that I can use advanced features to build flexibility and user choices into the lessons. I also frequently use the multi-state potential of objects to visually show progression through a sequence.

Captivate is powerful and builds great eLearning. It has a bit of a learning curve, but your end products will be well worth it. Our learners love the interactivity that Captivate provides and our designers love the flexibility that they have when building out products. It's a great product and it's really flexible.

We use Adobe Captivate to create interactive video presentations. You can easily add video assets, build interactivity, and add assessment questions all in one application. Typical delivery includes publishing to a SCORM package and uploading to an LMS. Adobe Captivate allows us to expedite the content creation process by leveraging templates and saved actions to build out our eLearning solutions.

We build interactive training available on-demand to our staff. In our industry it is often difficult to get staff together to attend an in-person training. Captivate allows us to build customized training that meets the needs of our organization that can be accessible when staff have the time. The courses we build touch everyone from executive leadership down to individual contributor level employees.

I use Captivate to create software and IT related training for my company. Captivate allows me to create high quality software demos, record dynamic video content, and to design scenario based training that engages and informs employees at every level of my company. Captivate allows me to create training content that is interactive and allows my learners to engage with the training rather than simply be passive watchers.

I use Adobe Captivate to develop training for company technicians and professionals. We develop full virtual curriculum scenarios to prepare learners for new internal certifications and training basics.

Captivate enables us to develop a single training tat we can assign out to the company nationwide.
