I’d like to talk about a new feature in the Adobe Captivate 8 release that just came out. So, the new feature is called GeoLocation (GPS). It gives the developer a chance to build content that is unique and different for learners based on their location. Thanks to the Adobe Captivate 8 update, this is now possible.
Here is how it works: for example, if you were making an international sales course. You’d want to train users in different countries, and you’d want to train them in a different process course. With Captivate 8, you can do that. So your content actually recognizes the GeoLocation or longitude and latitude of the learners, and then will obey what you programmed the course to do.
How Does GeoLocation Work in Adobe Captivate 8?
This works because you can make different headers for different areas. In the video example, I wanted the people in the UK to hear a different audio clip than the people in the US. So you can see there is different audio. How does this work? What Captivate 8 does is locates the longitude and latitude of the learner. Then it shows different icons or images that you choose to show, and in this case in our video I chose to give it different audio.
How to Activate GeoLocation in Your Project
Go to Project > Advanced Options > Existing Actions > Choose DetermineGeoLocation.
Once the cpinfoGeoLocation variable is active. You need give it a variable. Click one the variable button and give it the longitude and latitude needed. You can even refine the GeoLocation to certain mile radius. So any learners within that radius will receive the course your determined.
