I bring another question about the Captivate use. Consider the following scene:
To create some interactive lessons of (an example), MS Paint: we want that, in some parts of the lesson, the student have the possibility to draw some forms in the screen (rectangles, elipses, etc.), following an indication in the screen (click in point A, hold the mouse button, drag to point B and release the mouse button).
I already make some software recordings using the assessment mode, and see that it create a "video" of the drawing in the slide... Now, I don´t understand how could I put the student to interact with it.
I just don't think Captivate can do what you were hoping.
I usually just use a video showing students how its done, then get them to do it in the actual program.
However, one of the Captivate gurus may have some better suggestions.
Thanks, Kerry. I just talked with Michael, from captivate.com, and he said me the same thing...
