Utilizing AI to Create an Interactive Situation with the All-New-Adobe Captivate: Half Two


Within the earlier article, I used ChatGPT to create the inspiration for a state of affairs based mostly course that I’ll create within the All-New Adobe Captivate. For this second half, I’m going to develop that preliminary content material into the construction for our interactive state of affairs.  Typically talking, branched situations can quickly grow to be advanced sufficient that it would be best to use some form of picture mapping software to visualise the completely different branches. That is very true when you assume that the branches would possibly duplicate or flip again on themselves in some unspecified time in the future.

On this case now we have three choice factors, and every choice level has three selections. Every selection can lead us to a superb path, a impartial path, or to a worst case path.  In a typical state of affairs, a worst case path is unrecoverable, and so it turns into a terminal department.  It doesn’t alway imply that your character died, however normally it means you will be requested to begin once more. Let’s check out this idea as a visible / coming from a visible path mapping software. A well-known approach to do that is to make use of PowerPoint.
There is just one department or choice represented right here. The state of affairs turns into extra attention-grabbing once you understand that There’ll finally be three branches (and lots of situations could have heaps extra.) Additionally – that it’s inefficient to have multiple copy of the very same slide or ‘end result.’  So it’s seemingly that the underside proper slide, ‘Tommy is injured” would be the commonest outcomes slide. However we are going to solely construct that slide one time, and subsequently we might have some challenges determining issues like rating, and navigation after we come to this slide.

We will strategy this drawback a few alternative ways. We will have a self-guided navigation web page that enables the learner to decide on a call level – presenting every as a standalone journey. (For this we might use compelled navigation – so we would properly do this.) Or we might use chronology – because the AI prompt. On this case we’d set up a form of intrinsic gate. You would wish to unravel every choice appropriately as a way to transfer to the following.

There’s a mannequin the place you possibly can allow path correction – by framing suggestions from an enough however imperfect reply to result in the following analysis. This may complicate suggestions fairly a bit, so for this case I feel we are going to decide to maintain it a bit easier. So our fundamental mission design ought to seem like this;

Slide 1: Title / Credit

Slide 2: Introduction (the fundamental narrative and directions.)

Slide 3: Pressured Navigation / Menu slide which reveals all three choice narratives, however doesn’t permit completion till every of the three has been resolved.

Choice level slides as wanted for every state of affairs choice. After which lastly a evaluation and closure slide.

To start this course of I opened the All New Adobe Captivate.  I began with a easy Introduction slide. On the software bar on the higher left aspect I chosen the blue insert slide button after which selected the Introduction slide choice. This drops in a easy slide with a picture on the highest and a few textual content components on the underside.  I changed the default, placeholder picture with a brand new picture from the story, and used the title that ChatGPT advisable. I don’t assume I really want a button right here and I would like the customers to get used to the thought of clicking on photos so I’ll add an interplay to the picture that triggers a go to subsequent web page motion.

To do that I opened the panels menu on the higher proper and chosen the interactions design panel.  I chosen the press motion as a set off after which chosen the goToNext web page choice to make the quilt graphic right into a button that will take the learner to the following web page on any click on.

I’ll dive into the precise detailed slide growth within the subsequent weblog.  We’ll discover extra interactions as I create a compelled navigation menu in only a few clicks, map the navigation paths to every of the choice factors and set up the inspiration for monitoring the state of affairs progress.

All of the little stuff you would possibly need to know:
1. Right here’s a hyperlink to an article in regards to the two new variations of Adobe Captivate and the way they differ.
2. Right here’s a hyperlink to obtain the All-New Adobe Captivate (it’s a trial however it’s going to activate when you login and you have already got a subscription to Captivate.)
