Adobe Captivate 5

What is Adobe Captivate 5?

Adobe Captivate is an electronic learning tool for Microsoft Windows which can be used to author software demonstrations, software simulations, branched scenarios, and randomized quizzes in .swf format. It can also convert Adobe Captivate generated .swf to .avi which can be uploaded to video hosting websites. For software simulations, Captivate can use left or right mouse clicks, key presses and rollover images. Features include a new GUI similar to other Adobe CS family products, built-in animation effects, extended Microsoft PowerPoint support, extended video embedding and control (it functions similarly to audio in older versions), master slides and object styles. Developers are able to publish their content to Acrobat.com and use it as a quasi-Learning management system. Adobe Captivate 5 is available separately or as part of Adobe eLearning Suite 2.


The primary executable is named AdobeCaptivate.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 1.53 MB (1,609,336 bytes).
