    Intended Audience

    Anyone interested in a hands-on workshop to develop their skills to create eLearning.


    Adobe Captivate is an eLearning authoring tool that allows for the rapid creation of interactive learning content. It’s simple enough for beginners, but powerful enough for experts. Captivate is one of the top eLearning authoring software applications for creating eye-catching, interactive, and responsive online courses.


    This hands-on, instructor-led, and project-based Captivate workshop focuses on teaching you how to create eLearning without the need for complicated programming or expensive hardware.


    During this two-day workshop, you will access a virtual training room where you’ll be able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants as you work in real-time to complete activities. Bring a willingness to learn, and you’ll leave with a fully functioning eLearning masterpiece. We’ll provide two of Kevin’s internationally best-selling books for each paid attendee. You will need to have the Adobe Captivate software installed on your computer. (Note that the free trial version of Captivate works fine but keep in mind that it’s only a 60-day trial… don’t install it too soon).


    Any Required or Suggested Technologies for Participants: 

    1. The current version of Captivate that we use during this bootcamp is Adobe Captivate 2019 (version 11.5). To participate in this class, you’ll need to do download the free trial version of Captivate if you don't already have it.

    Takeaways for Participants:

    1. Day One attendees will receive a copy of Adobe Captivate 2019: The Essentials (2nd Edition)
    2. Day Two attendees will receive a copy of Adobe Captivate 2019: Beyond The Essentials (2nd Edition)


    Participants who attend both days will receive a voucher to complete the IconLogic Certified Adobe Captivate Developer (ICACD) certification exam, a $295 value.

    Please note that additional study and practice outside of this two-day workshop will be necessary to be prepared for the exam.

    Do you know the difference between Section 508 and WCAG? When is accessibility in eLearning a legal requirement and when is it just the right thing to do? Monique will answer these questions and more as she leads a presentation and discussion on the topics of accessibility standards in eLearning, and considerations for audio and text, along with some basics about color and contrast, navigation, and timing. Come join the discussion about why accessible design benefits everyone, not just the people who need it most.

    At the end of this session, participants will be able to: 

    • Know the difference between Section 508 and WCAG accessibility requirements.  
    • Understand the accessibility standards in eLearning: audio, text, color, contrast, navigation, and timing.
    • Discuss the benefits of successful accessible design for all learners.
