Bookmark / Resume Widget for Adobe Captivate

The Bookmark / Resume Widget for Adobe Captivate allows a user to return to your course at their last exit point. It keeps track of this by using a Local Shared Object on the users PC. Package contents: The package contains three (3) separate componets. One component for Adobe Captivate 2 & Adobe Captivate 3 projects. This component will only work for projects published as SWF. There is no support for EXE publishing. One component for Adobe Captivate 4. This component will work for projects published as SWF and EXE. One advanced component for Adobe Captivate 4. This component allows you to pass a variable from Captivate 4 through a standard text entry box. This will allow you to keep multiple bookmarks for individual users on a shared PC. How does it work? The Bookmark Component is an animation that you insert into Adobe Captivate which then keeps track of the users progress in your course/presentation and stores it in a shared object on the users computer. If a user exits your project before having viewed all of it then it will store the pagenumber and remember this the next time the users launces your project. The user will then be given a choice on whether to continue from where they left off or start over again. Once a user has viewed your course/project to the end it will automatically reset the bookmark. This process is similar to what we normally do in LMS when we deploy Adobe Captivate content although the progress status is stored in the LMS database instead of on the users computer. Requirements / Specifications: The component works with Adobe Captivate 2, Adobe Captivate 3 and Adobe Captivate 4. It is built using ActionScript 2 so if you use it in Captivate 4 it needs to be an AS2 project. For Adobe Captivate 4 projects the component needs to be embedded into the project (this is the standard setting) – It will not work if you choose to “Externalize Animations”. The component requires Flash Player 8 on the users computer as a minimum. Component has been tested with IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox 2 & Firefox 3.
