Adobe Captivate 9 is used worldwide to create engaging, interactive eLearning applications, online training videos and software demonstrations.

This two day Adobe authorised Advanced Captivate course will give you an in-depth understanding of Captivate's features and allow you to create more complex and impressive eLearning.

During the course you will build on your existing knowledge and look at interactive and non-interactive objects, Captivate's audio and video functionality, how to create quizzes and tracking user actions as well as how to use themes and intelligent workflow solutions. This course is designed for those who have attended our Introduction to Captivate 8 or 9 course or for people who have a similar working knowledge.
