Adobe releases e-learning creation software

Adobe announced the release of Adobe Captivate 2, a software suite that can generate interactive content for training and e-learning. The software is based on Macromedia Flash technology.

'Software solutions that enable training professionals to provide rich learning experiences are a critical component to increase business productivity,' said Naresh Gupta, senior vice president, Print and Classic Publishing for Adobe.

Captivate allows users to create interactive simulations and scenario-based training programs which can have editable mouse movements and descriptions as well as scoring and feedback. Programs are publishable as shockwave/flash or executable files, and other non-interactable training can be translated into mp3 files. The software is also Section 508 compliant.

Captivate was originally developed by the eHelp corporation which was acquired by Macromedia in 2003. The software became Adobe's property after the company purchased Macromedia last year.
