One of the challenges working at a large NGO is getting everyone on the same page. Sponsorship is one of World Vision’s main products. We needed to create a online training course for our employees and volunteers so that Sponsorship communication is consistent.
We needed to have the course on our LMS system and we opted to use Adobe Captivate to build the project since I was comfortable in the Flash environment. Captivate is a great product when you want to stay within the templates and tools they give you but it can be a bit of a struggle when you try to do things Captivate wasn’t built to do. A couple of the things I struggled with was having a custom certificate with dynamic fields, and custom background image incorporated into LMS system. The last part is really more of a learning curve when working with LMS systems.
The course was designed to be completed in 30 minutes and is linear. The navigation is play, pause, and back one slide. The training has a voice over narration guiding the user through the presentation.
