Content Authoring Phase 3 Pilot - Fall 2017 - Captivate

This document covers basic information on Captivate for the Fall 2017 Content Authoring Phase 3 Pilot and what information is captured in the Learning Locker.

NOTE: The pilot team is uncovering issues with Captivate regarding accessibility and retrieving answers to multiple choice and multiple select questions via learning analytics data. Use with caution.

Adobe Captivate is interactive content authoring software. The Adobe software suite has been licensed by UW-System - your local IT staff may be able to install it for you if they have access to it on the Campus Software Library. It is available for both Windows and OSX. Captivate is an option for creating critical reader modules but is better suited for creating case scenarios where the student takes a role and makes decisions applying things they've learned in class and getting feedback on the choices they've made.

Captivate modules are uploaded to the pilot WordPress instance with the Grassblade xAPI plugin. A separate plugin is used to send the module grade to Canvas. A KnowledgeBase doc on that functionality is forthcoming. If you are a Fall 2017 content authoring pilot participant and have a question on your module's integration with Canvas or Learning Locker please e-mail content_auth_pilot@lists.wisc.edu and include a link to the module you or your students are having trouble with, along with a link to your Canvas course. Include your operating system version and browser version. At this time dedicated training and support on Captivate and Learning Locker is not available.
