Riassunto: I've been teaching Adobe Captivate for years. At the end of a two-day class, my students have all the skills they need to create highly interactive computer-based training simulations (CBTs) using Captivate.
Some time ago a student, just prior to leaving class the last day, asked how she could focus her writing skills and create clean, step-by-step documentation she could use for her Captivate storyboards. She said she had searched and searched and could not find a class designed specifically for creating step-by-step documentation.
I had another student ask me if I had a style guide he could borrow so that he could create a corporate style guide to be used for all of their Captivate CBTs.
Based on those conversations, I created this book. Part 1 of the book is designed to help you focus your grammar and writing skills and allow you to create concise step-by-step documentation. Part 2 of this book is the Style Guide and Process document I created for use at IconLogic.
Please keep in mind that this 98-page workbook will not magically turn you into a writer, let alone a script writer. You'll need lots of hands-on experience and additional training before that happens. Consider this book to be a "baby-step" book. I've written this book as a way to get your storyboards and scripts off on the right foot. Also keep in mind that the Style Guide I present in Part 2 does not teach you Captivate. I ve got a book, "Essentials of Adobe Captivate 3," that will do that. Instead, that section of the book is simply designed to offer the techniques and processes we use every day to create CBTs with Captivate.
