David's Hopes For Docebo Inspire 2018

In this brief Q&A session our eLearning Consultant, David Brannon, answers questions about his hopes for next week's Docebo Inspire Conference in Toronto.  GuyKat are proud sponsors of this event.

What part of DoceboInspire are you most excited about? 

The Learning Awards! There’s a tonne of other things I’m excited about, but I really can’t wait to see who wins each of the categories. I’ll be crossing my fingers for a few of the finalists our team has worked with this year. We've helped get them up and running and doing awesome things on Docebo, and it's been brilliant to see them roll-out their projects and then continue to push their platforms forward.  They deserve recognition. But all entries are brilliant, and the judges are fiercely independent so we'll see!

Whenever there is any Docebo event there is always a great atmosphere – it will be fantastic to catch-up with the great people who work for Docebo. I’m also planning on catching up with some clients who are attending and hoping to meet some new people too!

What are you expecting from DoceboInspire?

I feel like there will be a buzz around AI (Artificial Intelligence).  AI is being talked about everywhere, you just can’t get away from it. I remember attending a partner event a little while back and the CEO of Docebo (Claudio Erba) gave a compelling speech about how AI will transform the way we use learning technology. We’ve just seen Docebo make its first AI release with the 7.5 updates and I can’t wait to see how it will develop.

If I get time to check out some of the sessions, I will certainly be making a beeline to hear from Ben Eubanks when he discusses ‘Artificial Intelligence at Work: What skills will tomorrow’s workforce need?’ (3 pm October 11th).

What are you hoping to take away from the event?

I’m hoping to meet Docebo users and hear their experiences - the networking at the Inspire events is a good chance to talk through familiar and sometimes unfamiliar use-case scenarios. I can learn a lot from other people’s experiences and also help others to see different ways of achieving goals.

I’m also hoping that a recent addition to the GuyKat team (Joanne Payne – LMS Consultant) will get the chance to soak up the Docebo atmosphere and take as much out of the education sessions as possible at Docebo U.

Where can we find GuyKat at DoceboInspire?

We’ll have our own stand, so feel free to pop by and say hello! Some of the team will also be going to the talks, so if you bump into any of them I’m sure they’d be happy to talk about Docebo and eLearning content (don’t be shy!)

Our CEO, Guy McEvoy, will be in the spotlight when he introduces bestselling business author Chester Elton at the keynote session in the morning on Thursday, October 11th.

We will also be at the Learning Awards cheering everyone on!

What can our clients expect to see and take away from this event?

I think the key takeaways clients will really benefit from our education and experience.

The Docebo U session is a great addition to the event, I’m sure sitting down with the Docebo experts will enlighten any admins using the system, you are bound to pick up some new tips and tricks.

There’s also a lot of talks scheduled with experienced Docebo users - listening to their experiences will no doubt fast-track you to success with your own platform.

Are you planning to do any sightseeing while you're in Toronto?

If I get a chance to explore, I’m sure to have a wander and take in the CN Tower. I’m also planning to drop by the famous St. Lawrence Market (hopefully I can pick up some great gifts for my family back home!)


Screencast: Docebo's exciting new function

Docebo consultant, David Brannon, sits down for a short interview to discuss his favourite new Docebo feature.

 

What’s currently exciting you in the world of Docebo?

“For me, it has to be the new screencast function. This allows you to record your screen for your learners to view later, creating content with ease.”

“I'm always excited to see new updates in Docebo and the addition of screencast technology is another step forward. You can now record your screen whilst logged-in to Docebo. You can navigate to your desktop, different web pages or even software on your device and make a recording, there and then.”

 

Is it easy to use?

“Once the recording is complete, you upload the asset straight to Docebo so that other users can view it. Docebo are providing a best-in-class tool (Screencast-O-Matic) which is easy to follow and allows screen recording, webcam recording, or both at the same time. This is especially useful when you want to present and instruct, seamlessly combining the recording into your teaching.”

“It's also possible within this tool to edit and annotate the content, which is super handy!”

 

How has this changed the way that you work on Docebo?

“I have already started using the tool to share quick tips to my team internally. For example, one of the new starters wanted to know the export settings I was using on Adobe Captivate (an authoring tool we use in-house). I went on Docebo, made a quick screen recording, and it was available right away both for this particular new starter, and for all future new starters. Everyone can benefit from the knowledge captured and shared. They can even ask questions through the system. There are loads of scenarios where this could be an absolute game-changer. I don't need to upload to Dropbox, SharePoint, and Google Drive anymore as I know this content is accessible for all of my team on whichever device they use.”

 

How can I take a look at it?

“GuyKat can offer you a 14 day free trial of the whole Docebo system. We’re also happy to give you a demo or webinar to get you going. Please feel free to contact me at david.brannon@guykat.com to learn more.”

Looking Back at Learning Technologies 2018

For the past four years at Learning Technologies the GuyKat team have co-manned the Docebo stall. We’re proud to partner with Docebo and the arrangement meant our pitch has always previously focussed on our LMS product. This year we wanted to raise awareness of the other big part of our business; bespoke eLearning. So, for the first time we exhibited on our own stand, under our own brand.  

We marked this milestone with the UK launch of our white paper on the importance of microlearning in the workplace. On the back of this release many people came to see us to find out more, most specifically how to access help in implementing a microlearning strategy in their own organisations. If you weren’t able to attend and want a soft or hard copy of the white paper, do please get in touch and we’ll be happy to send one through.

We also had some great conversations with Docebo customers who had heard about some of the customisation work we’ve been able to do for for other clients and wanting to know if we could help take their installation to the next level. We’re looking forward to working with them.

One thing that attracted a lot of comment was our tag-line. The most common question from walk-bys to the stand was “What do you mean by ‘Beyond eLearning’?”  We were asked so often that the answer, which gets to the very core of what GuyKat is all about, justifies an entire dedicated future blog post. Watch this space.

It’s always great to be part of this key industry event. Being surrounded by your clients, potential clients, partners and the competition is energising. Looking at competitors left us with a healthy balance of feeling very, very self-assured about the quality and pricing of our work, whilst still giving a gentle nudge that if we want to keep that feeling we need to retain our level of innovation.  We’re up for the challenge.  See you at LTUK19!

If our services sound of importance to you, please get in touch with me at george.atkin@guykat.com and we can discuss your next steps in eLearning!

Finally, congratulations to the two lucky winners of our prize draws for the Amazon Fire!


Why buy SaaS as a VAR?

Why would anyone buy a B2B SaaS product from a VAR (value-added reseller) rather than direct from the vendor? This is something I’ve been grappling with for two good reasons; Firstly, my own business uses SaaS solutions for all sorts of non-core, yet still crucial, business processes. Our accounting, CRM, email, file-storage and HR processes, amongst others, are all underpinned by various SaaS products. I’ve a huge vested interest in getting the best value from these ongoing investments. Secondly, my business itself is a VAR for a SaaS product. If I can’t articulate the benefit, I don’t deserve to be in the game.

Thinking of the products we’ve bought into, my answer has to be nuanced. Sometimes it makes sense to go direct, sometimes it makes sense to go with a VAR. I think of it like this: The closer your requirements are to the vendor’s standard use-case, the weaker the case for a VAR. There is nothing remotely unusual about the way I use my accounting, email or HR packages. I’m not integrating them with any other system. I’m entirely happy with the level of look and feel customisation I can do myself. The software is straightforward enough I can do everything I need to without training or guidance. So, the only reasons I would go with a VAR would be if they could beat the direct sales force on price (unlikely, but sometimes possible), or if I needed to contract in a particular currency, or with a legal entity in a named geography, and the direct sales operation were not set-up to support that.

However, once you get a little further away from the providers’ standard use-case scenario, or the closer the service is to a genuine core or customer-facing function in your business, the case for using a VAR begins to swing back in their favour.

  • Do you have complexities of integrating with other systems?
  • Do you want different payment terms to those that may be offered by the vendor directly?
  • Do you have concerns about training your team to administer the product?
  • Even if fully trained, do you have concerns about the capacity of your team to administer the product? Does this create an opportunity cost in time against their primary role?
  • Do you want to customise the product’s look, feel or even functionality beyond the standard offering?
  • Do you want a partner who has the time to more deeply understand your individual business, available resources and unique success criteria and then best mould the solution to reflect them?
  • All SaaS products evolve over time. Do you have the headspace to think through how the product roadmap and future releases will introduce both risks and opportunities to your solution. Do you fear not having the bandwidth to spot and plan for these?
  • Do you need support in bridging the gap between what the SaaS product delivers, and the manual and people factors outside the software that link together and make your overall business tick?

Answer yes to any of the above, and it is certainly worth thinking about a VAR. In our case, our CRM software could have been bought off-the-shelf, but we also needed guidance on process changes - ideas for content marketing, and an implementation strategy tailored to our business. These things wouldn’t have been well served by the generic online self-help, or the standard installation package from our chosen CRM vendor. With only a marginal uplift in initial cost, a VAR offered the opportunity to get a deeper level of tailored implementation support. This went beyond just a CRM implementation, and became a whole re-engineering of our end-to-end marketing, sales and customer success processes that happened to leverage a particular CRM tool we had our eye on. So for us, when looking at CRMs, a VAR was absolutely worth talking too.

Before I started my business, I used to work on big change management projects, often revolving around IT solutions for large, complex, multi-national organisations. We had a saying that change was all about getting all three components of people, process and technology right. Any project that focussed on the technology, but neglected the people and process, was doomed to fail. Buying a SaaS solution will often nail the technology part, but if you want to release the full benefits of the solution you need to get the supporting people and processes right too. This is where an experienced VAR puts the ‘V’ for ‘Value’ into the acronym.

GuyKat are a VAR of Docebo, a SaaS Learning Management solution. In a future post I'll explore the value we can add to your project to implement a training and content strategy or partner-enablement program, above and beyond the procurement of the software.

A Look Back at DoceboInspire 2017

A look back at DoceboInspire 2017

DoceboInspire 2017 brought together over 300 Learning and Development professionals for two days, exploring a wide range of eLearning and training topics. The event took place in Boston, MA and included a Harbour yacht cruise to host the inaugural DoceboInspire Awards ceremony. GuyKat is a proud partner of Docebo, so I caught up with the some of the team who were lucky enough to attend the event..

Guy, CEO of GuyKat:

“It was quite something to be surrounded by so many of Docebo’s clients from all over the world. They all use the system for slightly different purposes but the common theme was their enthusiasm for the tool.  I feel lucky to have been at the birth of this great new community.  I look forward to future events.”  

David, eLearning Consultant:

“Docebo Inspire was a great event. It was really exciting to meet so many people in the industry who are using Docebo and find out about their specific projects - there are so many different use cases!”.

It was a truly inspiring event allowing L&D professionals to attend sessions and talks from key speakers, including Claudio Erba, the CEO of Docebo. Some of the topics discussed included microlearning and the future landscape of learning. Check out our new white paper on ‘The Inevitable Rise of Microlearning in the Workplace’ to hear more about this. Email josie.wood@guykat.com for a copy!

 


Perform - Brilliant new feature for Docebo 7.0

Perform - Brilliant new feature for Docebo 7.0

In its latest release, Docebo introduces the Perform module which brings talent management capability to the Docebo LMS.

What is Perform?

Perform is a new feature on the Docebo LMS that is designed to allow you to evaluate your employee’s competencies and detect skill gaps. Once the skill gaps are detected, you can then intervene, offering learning and development opportunities. This could be done through formal learning plans and courses, or more informal videos or documents.

Some of the exciting features Perform has, include:

  • An off-the-shelf skills catalogue
  • Ability to create, import, and edit your skills and roles in bulk
  • Ability to assign skills to roles
  • You can map courses, learning plans, and informal learning assets
  • Rating Scale
  • Skill evaluation status monitoring
  • Skill evaluation calibration
  • Skills gap analysis
  • Skills, roles and gaps reporting

A particular feature we thought was great, was the ability to enrol a user with a specific skill gap to a course or learning plan that will support in filling the gaps in their knowledge.

GuyKat are a UK based Docebo partner who work with clients globally. We can support organisations with their implementation of the Docebo platform, including the perform module featured above.

How you can get access to it

It’s simple. Email david.brannon@guykat.com to set up a tailored webinar. David would love to give you a demonstration of the platform and its awesome new features, including Perform!


Good vs. Bad User Experience

Good vs. Bad User Experience

Our talented eLearning designer, Zoe Hall, explains what makes a negative user experience and offers tips on how she approaches building an effective user experience.

"A User Interface is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it’s not that good."

It's useful to understand the difference between the terms User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX):

  • UI – the product used to access the content – e.g. website, app, game, LMS etc.
  • UX - the entire experience the user has whilst navigating the through UI product, and the associating feelings and behaviours.

The UI in eLearning can have a huge impact on the quality of the UX. It can be the difference between an engaged and a distracted learner. A lot of thought should be put into selecting the most appropriate UI format. This provides a strong foundation that will allow the eLearning to be easy to navigate. Anything counterintuitive in the UI is distracting.

What makes a bad eLearning UX?

  • Overly complex content

Being faced with too much information will overwhelm the learner from the outset. Nobody wants to endure paragraphs of text. As best practice, making sure the content is succinct is crucial.

Our clients are subject matter experts. They know their stuff! They provide us with the meaningful content their learners need to grasp. My job is to convert detailed information into digestible eLearning that is quick to access and easy to understand.

  • A repetitive, predictable layout

Learners may lose concentration if the flow of the course becomes too predictable. For example, placing the Next button in the same position throughout the course is consistent and considered good UI 99% of the time. However, for complex, technical or compliance training, the risk is that a less diligent learner becomes disengaged. An overly consistent UI can make it too easy to mindlessly skip content. In these cases, it can make sense to play around with the layout.

I use a variety of methods to engage the learner. For example, changing titles of the buttons to Click for more information to reveal hidden material. Regardless of the layout, button style, feedback methods and colour themes are all factors that should remain constant through the eLearning experience. I use client brand guidelines to ensure that the training looks professional and on brand.

  • Ineffective instructional design

A client can provide the most detailed and expert information on a topic, but without a logical UX, the information is useless. The content must be formatted in a layout that makes sense to the user to transform the information into retained knowledge. For example, using a mobile phone has become such a common activity for us all, so it makes sense for eLearning to be accessible on numerous devices. eLearning modules that are responsive on desktop, tablet and mobile will likely reach more learners. GuyKat storyboard with clients to ensure that our designs meet the needs of your users.

  • When the user asks "What do I do now?"

If users are  left asking: "What do I do now?" when working through a course, then the eLearning has failed. A confused user = a lack of concentration.

The navigation must be simple to follow. If presented appropriately, the navigation should speak for itself and not have to be explained.

  • Difficult to retain information

The learner can miss out on meeting the learning objectives. This may be due to them skipping their way through the course, or just skimming over the valuable and insightful text. This is one of the biggest challenges in eLearning, as it can be difficult to gauge whether the learner is truly engaged.

A great way to resolve this is using a great LMS. It's important to appreciate that the user experience begins even before the eLearning has been accessed. The LMS should have seamless navigation that should come intuitively to users. GuyKat are proud UK partners of Docebo. We love Docebo because the UX means learners get to the content effortlessly. With many other LMS solutions the user may start off in the wrong mindset because they've just had a horrible UX before they've even launched the beautiful content we have built. This is a shame. If your LMS has a bad UI your overall learning journey will still be a bad UX, so you need to dump it.

Zoe’s steps to creating an effective user experience

1. Produce a plan

I begin by writing a detailed script then I start designing. I create a storyboard and evaluate the best interactions for your content.

2. Construct the right interactivity for the learning objective

Some authoring tools provide plenty of interactive opportunities, whilst others come with limitations. If my authoring tool does not allow me to create a certain interaction, then Ill explore how else I could make it work, I don't limit myself.

3. Always carry out Quality Assurance

Its true that your eyes read what they want you to see. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes can pick up things that are easily missed. I always ask for thorough feedback and the QA team at GuyKat are happy to help. The pickier, the better.

4. Draw inspiration from other sources

If I come across a well-designed website or if an advertisement catches my eye, I make a note of what I liked about it, what was attractive about it. I carry these ideas into my designing when I need some inspiration.

Summary

Its important to not become complacent when designing eLearning, so by putting myself in the eyes of the learner, I make sure the UX is consistent, interesting, interactive and engaging to meet the client's objectives.


Rose's summer internship at GuyKat

GuyKat offer an internship programme whereby we tailor the role and responsibilities around the individual’s skills and interests.

Rose is coming to the end of her internship with GuyKat, here’s what she got up to during her time with us:

What attracted you to the role at GuyKat?
The role stood out to me because it offered me a broad range of responsibilities. After finishing university, where I studied Business and Public Relations, I wanted to gain more experience and improve my communication skills. The role at an eLearning agency, such as GuyKat, gave me the opportunity improve my B2B marketing skills, but also apply my communication skills to writing scripts for some of the biggest brands in the world.

What were the main tasks you were given?
On a day-to-day basis, I regularly carried out market research to identify prospective customers. I’d also support the business with administrative tasks such as working on invoices and producing overviews on Excel. I wrote numerous blog posts which provided rich content for the GuyKat website, but also shareable content for the social media pages. I enjoyed having the responsibility of updating the GuyKat Twitter feed with news about the company and the eLearning industry. I was even lucky enough to attend an eLearning exhibition London, where I learnt about the latest trends and topics in the Learning and Development sector, and attended numerous talks from leading industry experts.

What were of your highlights during the internship?
I particularly enjoyed helping the GuyKat team with the task of script-writing! This involved taking subject-specific information from one of the biggest FMCG brands, and scripting it into easy-to-understand text. It was more difficult than I thought it would be, but I really enjoyed the challenge of making it as concise as possible. This was a highlight for me because I felt deeply involved with helping the eLearning team on one of their fast-paced projects. I gained a real insight into what is required for effective eLearning.

What did you enjoy about working with GuyKat?
The best part about my time at GuyKat was working with the brilliant team. I was introduced to everyone on my first day, it was clear there was a variety of roles across the business - from eLearning designers to business consultants. They are the friendliest bunch, and what really impressed me, was their expert knowledge in what they do. The eLearning developers create beautiful designs whilst the Docebo support team can apply their expert knowledge to solve problems quickly. Being able to work in such a motivated, hard-working team was really encouraging. They really are a pleasure to work with.

Any advice or tips for students or graduates looking for a career in marketing or communications?
My advice would be to gain as much experience as possible, especially in varying industries. Having some solid experience will provide you with skills that you will not have gained at college or university. These skills will also stand out to a potential employer, making you more likely to get hired. Gaining experience in different industries will help you to decide which path you want to take in future.

 


Dan's experience of being a GuyKat Apprentice

We caught up with Dan, our Junior eLearning Designer, who started his journey with GuyKat as an apprentice.

 

When did you join GuyKat?
I started at the beginning of February 2016 and my apprenticeship lasted for 13 months.

What responsibilities did you have as an apprentice? What were your day-to-day tasks?
When I first started, my responsibilities were all very heavily based on graphics and imagery. I would have to create graphics in the style of a client’s branding and match this to the look and feel of the eLearning that it would be a part of. I was also responsible for finding appropriate images from stock photo websites to download and, if required, edit them too. However, as I progressed through my apprenticeship, I became much more involved with the design and, eventually, the development of the eLearning that we make. Of course, as an apprentice I was given some of the less exciting jobs such as taking out the recycling and transcribing audio, but overall there weren’t many of those kinds of tasks. During a few days of filming, I was in charge of the clapperboard and keeping track of what take we were on.

What is your current job role?
I am currently the ‘Junior eLearning Designer’ at GuyKat. I am the most junior full-time member of the eLearning team.

How have your responsibilities changed?
My responsibilities now include designing and developing eLearning, graphic design, look and feel design, development of games within eLearning, and some instructional design. My work has massively developed since being an apprentice. When I first started, I had very little knowledge of page layout design or user experience/interface, which are features that I have since developed a real understanding for over time. I have also developed more technical skills such as my ability to use Adobe programmes. When I started, I only had some experience of using Adobe Photoshop, but I’ve since built my knowledge of using Captivate, After Effects and Illustrator and I am now even more confident in those than I am in Photoshop.

What were your motivations for choosing an apprenticeship?
I never really wanted to go to university, despite it being heavily encouraged in secondary school, and especially sixth form. The appeal of having zero amount of debt outweighed the possibility of a “good job”. Nor did I want to go straight into work, just because it would have been easy to find a job that related to nothing that I’m skilled in, and stay in it. So, this is why I chose to look for an apprenticeship. Being trained, earning money, gaining a qualification and the potential of a secured job seemed like the most logical and rewarding option. I feel that an apprenticeship gave me a head start against my peers that went to university, because experience is so important to employers. I see it as an extra year of experience.

What attracted you to GuyKat?
Honestly, I knew very little about the company when I applied. It was the position itself that I was interested in. Apprenticeships that aren’t just an employer looking for cheap labour are actually difficult to come by, so I applied for apprenticeships that had a design element in the description. I knew I wanted something creative. It wasn’t until the interview that I decided I wanted to work for GuyKat. I was given the impression that they wanted me as someone who could help the company whilst being taught from scratch.

What is your proudest achievement at GuyKat?
My proudest achievement was actually quite a recent one. I was given a piece of work from a client that had a very tight deadline of one week. The project involved designing and making an assessment from scratch (with questions provided). The assessment itself was fairly straightforward to create, yet making sure the scores were reported correctly was quite complicated. Different areas required separate scores and areas of strength and weakness to be shown. Through quite a bit of trial and error, I managed to create a complex scoring system that demonstrated the user’s strengths (i.e. the areas they scored highest in) and their weaknesses (the areas they scored lowest in). I also designed a certificate that pulled the user’s scores, strengths and weaknesses from the project. I had help with the coding side of this, as this was another complicated challenge. Even though the client had multiple rounds of changes, I still managed to complete the project before the deadline, and they were very happy with the finished product. All of this took a lot of thought and time from myself, and I learnt a lot through the process and felt a great sense of achievement from it.

What do you enjoy about working at GuyKat?
The culture at GuyKat is relaxed and extremely friendly, whilst still maintaining a very high level of productivity. Right from the start of my first day I felt welcomed and supported, and like a part of the team. Even though I was an apprentice, I wasn’t made to feel that I was providing any less value.

Would you recommend the apprenticeship route?
I would absolutely recommend the apprenticeship route to anyone who doesn’t think university is for them. It is a great way to gain experience of a real working environment whilst still receiving training and support from a college/training provider. By the end of an apprenticeship, you will have valuable experience and a qualification to continue onto something else. You might choose to continue to a higher-level apprenticeship, or you may even be offered a job at the place that you carried out your apprenticeship like I was.


Our favourite ‘new and improved’ features in Adobe Captivate 2017.

Our favourite 'new and improved' features in Adobe Captivate 2017.

Adobe Captivate is the development tool of choice for the in-house eLearning production team at GuyKat. Whilst at Learning DevCamp 2017 in Salt Lake City earlier this month, our team reviewed the new features in the latest release (Adobe Captivate 2017) with other industry experts.

Our eLearning Developer, Zoe Hall, shares her favourite features of the new update:

1)   Retina screen software recording

Whilst you could record a Video Demo or Software Simulation using Captivate 9, the 2017 update has resolved the need to edit the AdobeCaptivate.ini file. We have have found this improvement really useful, especially for cutting down development time and simplifying our internal processes.

2)   Multi-state buttons

The ability to use buttons with multiple states (e.g. Normal, Hover, Down) on Master Slides, Quiz Slides, Quiz Results Slides and Drag and Drop Slides is an excellent update that can streamline our workflow and improve the UX throughout our projects.

3)   Typekit Integration

Adobe Typekit is now integrated with Adobe Captivate. This allows developers with a Creative Cloud account to use fonts from the Typekit library within Captivate projects. Not being limited to websafe fonts for HTML5 projects now allows for consistent design across all devices. This enables us to align with the brand guidelines of our varied clients that require eLearning for multiple devices.

4)   Conditional ‘While’ loop within Advanced Actions

We love the new ‘Conditional Tab’ check box within Advanced Actions, but we’re even more excited by the possibilities of the ‘While’ loop to enhance quizzing, gaming and general UX!

The ‘While’ action can be used to shorten our workflow to create simple GIF style animations within Captivate, as well as more interactive games using variables to create timers, change states and assign points.

Having taken some time to explore the ‘While’ action at Learning DevCamp, this feature will allow our team to push the boundaries to create engaging and interactive eLearning.

5)   Fluid Boxes  

The release of Fluid Boxes has coincided well with the rising demand for fully responsive design in our daily digital experiences - including responsive eLearning.

Captivate 2017 Fluid Boxes are a development on the previous breakpoints used in Captivate 8 and 9. Objects within Fluid Boxes align and resize automatically on different devices, creating a course that isn’t just optimised for one screen. There are many powerful, hidden tools and options within Captivate 2017 to tailor the Fluid Boxes to each developer’s needs. This higher level of flexibility and control, along with the ability to preview multiple device resolutions within Captivate, is another way that the update has reduced the development time for a responsive project and has created a better experience for the learner, regardless of the device they are using.

We are already utilising some of these features in current client projects.

If you’re looking for Adobe Captivate experts who can create bespoke eLearning, then feel free to get in touch.

Take a look at what else we got up to at Learning DevCamp 2017.
