Hi guys, I am trying to find a solution for our hybrid
(elearning/performance support) modules. We need a solution that
will allow users to search, see a glossary and bookmark and also be
scormed. I am considering Robohelp along with Captivate but there
are some issues....Robohelp could provide strong search
capabitlites but, would it search within an embedded Captivate
movie? I would think not. So, then we would have to type the
instructional content in Robohelp and outside the captivate piece.
if we do that, the search engine will pick up the keywords but then
I won't be able to track users through the Robohelp file. Also,
since there is no scorming of robohelp, there also no bookmarking
feature. Any ideas to solve this dilemma?
For the Captivate content, you would need to create a strong
Index. Or possibly create a Microsoft Word document from the
Captivate content and include the text of it inside the Captivate
topic page. You could make the text hidden so it would be
searchable but not seen. If you did that, the user would only be
deposited at the Captivate movie. Not at the Captivate slide where
the term is used.
As for the SCORM stuff, I know that other files are involved
with Captivate when creating SCORM compliant output. It's long been
my understanding that a Learning Management System (LMS) operating
using SCORM is expected to serve the Captivate content. This way,
the conversation is established between the LMS and the Captivate
object. I'm doubtful you would be able to make it work the other
way around. Where a Captivate SCORM object would initiate the
conversation with the LMS database. I'd have to defer that answer
to Andrew Chemey or Erik Lord over in the Captivate forums. Maybe
one of those gentlemen knows if it can happen that way.
Hopefully at least some of this was helpful... Rick
