Smart eLearning design [New]
Embrace an intelligent authoring paradigm—deliver the most engaging, interactive device-independent content with a minimum of fuss. Automatically create fully responsive content that best-fits your learners’ devices, automatically transform legacy projects into responsive projects and automatically deliver great viewing experiences with Adobe Typekit integration.
Fluid Boxes [New]
Explore the building blocks of Smart eLearning design with intelligent containers that use white space optimally. These containers kick-in when you choose a responsive theme. Optionally you can draw your own Fluid Boxes. Objects placed in Fluid Boxes get aligned automatically so that learners always get fully responsive experience regardless of their device or browser. Crunch authoring time and speed up time-to-market with a host of powerful properties, such as optional display of objects and locking of aspect ratio.
Multiscreen responsive eLearning authoring [Enhanced]
Author as you always have—content automatically rearranges itself for the learner’s device. Use the in-product device-specific preview to see how your project will appear. Publish as a single project and automatically deliver a fully responsive experience to your learners.
Auto-migrate from non-mobile to mobile [New]
Join the mobile age. Transform legacy desktop-only courses into fully responsive modules using patent-pending technology from Adobe. Bring in existing Adobe Captivate projects and save them as responsive projects. When you relaunch them, Fluid Boxes will automatically appear around the most logical grouping of objects, which you can accept or customise.
Adobe Typekit integration [New]
Good typography makes for a great viewing experience only when it is consistent across devices and delivering that just got a lot easier. Create a cloud-based kit of selected Typekit font families for use in your courses. Now learners will experience the content exactly as you intended.
Best-in-class screen capture
Generate robust software simulations with multiple learning modes in a single recording session by capturing all on-screen actions, including mouse movements, system audio and keyboard activity. Create a single responsive screen capture project that plays seamlessly across devices. Adobe Captivate detects screen activity in the recording window and automatically pans to those areas to create screen capture output for the tablet and mobile views.
Kickstart authoring the smart way with this free storyboarding app**. Convert your ideas into interactive storyboards complete with eLearning elements such as content and question slides, branching logic and more. Share storyboards for real-time, collaborative reviewing on the cloud; reviewers do not need to have either the app or Adobe Captivate. Simply import your storyboards into Adobe Captivate and publish them, to seamlessly generate responsive projects.
**the app is currently available only for iPad on the Apple iOS App Store.

Responsive Motion Effects without programming [Enhanced]
Create fluid object transitions that include motion paths and rotations, even in responsive projects. Now add effects to both individual objects and groups of objects. Define Linear, Custom or Scribble motion paths to completely control the way objects move. Preview animations on hover and see how effects play out on the integrated Effects and Project timeline. Deliver a superior responsive learning experience by designing different effects for different devices.
Customisable closed captions [New]
Create courses that meet accessibility standards with closed captions generated from slide notes and for slide videos. These can be enhanced by controlling the way they look and where they appear.
Device-specific previews [New]
Eliminate the guesswork. Now preview exactly how your content will look on specific devices by selecting from a preset device menu. You can also add new devices to the menu, as required.
Shared Advanced Actions [Enhanced]
Use advanced actions to enable conditional or multiple actions in an interaction or across projects. Create shared action templates to use across modules and projects.

Keep learners on-track with knowledge check questions embedded in your course. Improve the percentage of successful outcomes using the remediation workflow—when answering a quiz question incorrectly, let learners revisit the relevant section, understand the concept correctly and retry the question.
Expand your outreach to defence, government and educational organisations. Easily create simulations and demonstrations that address accessibility standards, such as Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). To help ensure that everyone can access your content, define text equivalents, insert clickable areas that allow keyboard access and more.
