This Adobe Captivate tutorial shows how to create a quiz in Adobe Captivate 6. You will see how to add a question slide to a Captivate project and how to track a user’s success or failure. In addition you will see how to use multiple choice and true/false questions in an Adobe Captivate quiz. This tutorial is from our live, instructor-led Adobe Captivate 6 Training course.
Adobe Captivate allows you to quickly create software demonstrations, interactive simulations, branching scenarios, and quizzes without programming. The functionality in Captivate 5 (and now the newly released Captivate 6 – which you can try for free using the Captivate 6 free trial) helps you to go beyond boring screen captures or monotonous eLearning by using interactive and engaging features. And once you’ve created your content, you can easily integrate it with your other eLearning applications and SCORM and AICC compliant Learning Management Systems (LMS) to deliver content to your users.
If you’re not familiar with using screen capture or eLearning creation tools, Captivate can be a little intimidating at first. We’ve compiled a set of free resources to help you learn Adobe Captivate. Or, if you’re someone who learns better in a structured learning environment, check out our Captivate 5 Training and Captivate 6 Training courses which are hands-on classes led by a live instructor.
