I do use Photoshop to create/edit bitmap assets, Illustrator to create SVG's, Audition to record and edit Audio clips, sometimes Photoshop to edit a short video (or Premiere Pro). Typekit is only available with CP2017 (why did you download an older version?). Phonegap can be used from within Captivate. Animate CC is great to create HTML5 (and SWF) animations (OAM).
What are your plans for Captivate? For example, how are you planning on your end users accessing what you create using Captivate?
If you aren't quite sure yet or perhaps you just plan on copying Captivate output to a web server of some sort, you might find Adobe RoboHelp to be an interesting tool to add to the mix. RoboHelp would offer the ability to seamlessly connect to those Captivate outputs, organize them into a nice Table of Contents and make them easy to find using the Indexing features RoboHelp offers.
Basically the workflow would involve creating the assorted Captivate outputs. Using RoboHelp to pull them in and organize them. Then possibly using Adobe RoboHelp to publish the complete file set to a web server where your end users could easily access them.
Thanks, Rick. there is a lot I don't know ab Captivate yet. I plan on using it in my role to create micro training bits, and eventually learning modules to be used in LMSs. I need to get my feet wet and learn the basics so I can really understand my possibilities.
Captivate is a wonderful tool for creating eLearning content and we encourage all new users to download the tool and take it for a spin. At a very high level, you can use Captivate for the following:

I just wondered why you didn't download the latest version (2017)?
As for learning Captivate, maybe also have a look at my blog post describing the major stumbling blocks for newbies:
That article is based on my experiences as moderator on the Jive forums, trainer, consultant and user of Captivate since version 1 (was stil Macromedia).
This is so super helpful! I will definitely be referring this!
Thank you for the resources!
I did get the latest. I'm not sure why I put Captivate 9. My brain and fingers weren't in coordination. Thank you for the resource! This is going to be really helpful as I get started.
OK, I will change the version number in your quesiton (have moderator rights).
