Captivate MenuBuilder: Creating an Online Tutorial for Teaching Software
Yelinek, Kathryn; Tarnowski, Lynn; Hannon, Patricia; Oliver, Susan
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v82 n2 p101-106 Nov-Dec 2008
In this article, the authors, students in an instructional technology graduate course, describe a process to create an online tutorial for teaching software. They created the tutorial for a cyber school's use. Five tutorial modules were linked together through one menu screen using the MenuBuilder feature in the Adobe Captivate program. The separate modules allowed the cyber school's students to customize their learning, whereas the entire tutorial allowed teachers to concentrate class time on teaching lesson objectives, rather than software. (Contains 4 figures.)
