Captivate helps users develop rich, interactive, and professional eLearning content that can be deployed anywhere. Content can be personalized and outputted to SWF and AVI files to publish to YouTube™, stream on the web, etc.
Captivate builds and edits interactive software demonstrations, simulations, podcasts, screencasts, games, program demos and lessons. For software demos, it can either record in real time or use an event-based screen capture that snaps a sequence of still images and then builds mouse movement simulations to create the appearance of a running program. By using Adobe Flash Tweening technology, Captivate is able to create screencasts in a much smaller filesize than needed for a real full-motion screen capture movie.
