  9. 9. When you are ready to record the capture, Captivate lets you choose which window you’d like to record and how you’d like to record it. For capturing screen movement, “Demonstration” works well. However, “Simulation” is still an option at this point.<br />You hit the “Record” button to begin recording , and the “End” key to stop recording. <br />
  10. 10. The capture is added in a series of “slides” that you can edit using any of the tools or properties available in Captivate<br />
  11. 11. Publishing the Tutorial<br />
  12. 12. Flash is the most popular file format for publishing tutorials, since it is viewable across various platforms.<br /> Placing the media file you just created on a plain web page is, likewise, the most popular choice for disseminating tutorials…<br />Tutorial with screencapture from LIS 1001 <br />
  13. 13. The Summer 2009 LIS 1001 online course was built entirely with Captivate software to explain material and demonstrate methods through digital tutorials.<br />A total of 19 tutorials, ranging from 1:00 minute to 9:00 minutes, were created. No audio was associated with these files, for various reasons<br />Both students and instructors found benefits in this method.<br />
