In case you didn’t know it yet, Adobe Captivate 9 now comes standard with eLearning Brothers templates and cut out people out of the box. While we think that this alone is good enough to start using the templates, we wanted to offer you offer you a better, simpler reason. Using eLearning Brothers templates in your Adobe Captivate course will provide you with stunning visuals that will also save you development time. It really is just that simple! Take a look at these Captivate templates and see.
The Simple template color scheme gives a luxurious feel with a warm orange resembling gold on a dark background. The Layout and Theme templates also add in the feel of boating off the coast, adding a lavish atmosphere of world travel and ease to your learning content. Not all training needs to spell doom for your learners, and putting a learners mind at ease can help to encourage them as they learn. The Simple templates are great for making your content feel optimistic and light-hearted.
There are five different scenarios and interactions available in the Simple templates.
The conversation scenario template is great for roleplaying situations that might be frequent for your learners. Want them to practice discussing a sale with a customer? Perhaps they need to try giving a realistic employee performance review. Maybe they need to work through a common process with a member of their team helping them along. Any time you need that human interaction in a course, a conversation scenario is a fantastic way to do it.
There’s also a more generalized branching scenario template available in the library. Use this for any decisions that might provide different outcomes based on the choices made. Should you increase or decrease the amount of material going into the assembly line? Which device should you use to get the job done? These templates will help them along the path.
The two click and reveal templates are great for sorting information. Break up a topic into categories and use the horizontal or vertical tabs to display each one accordingly. If you’re feeling brave, replace the text buttons with image buttons to help make associations to important objects, people or places with which they need to be familiar. Speaking of making associations, the dragger template is another fantastic way to accomplish this.
Each of these templates is easily customized. Just copy and paste your text as it fits into the appropriate template slide. If you already have a style guide that dictates your color palette, feel free to make adjustments to any shade and keep the functionality of the templates intact. As we said before, it really is just that simple!
Many of these templates are baked into Captivate 9. Watch our short video that shows you how to access them. In addition to our Captivate templates, we have many other libraries you can subscribe to here.
