Captivate vs. Storyline Webinar Recording

Thank you to all of you who registered and attended this event. It was a huge success with a packed house in both sessions. For those of you who missed it and for those who wanted to watch it again, here is the recording and a link to the handout that Diane references.

As Diane mentioned during the presentation, we have a new series of on demand, self-paced courses coming out later this Spring. Our first will be titled “Mastering Variables in Storyline.” So if you liked the dice game that Diane was previewing during the presentation, this course will show you how to build it and other indispensable uses of variables in Storyline.

  • This is a fabulous presentation! I signed up but couldn’t attend. So happy you made the recording available. This is a wonderful, structured, non-biased run down of all the ways the two tools are different. Thank you so much.

    Hi there! Can you tell me if any software simulation tool exists that can capture/record an interactive drag and drop (or click and drop) action? Per Articulate, SL360 is unable to capture such an event (as seen at Not sure about Captivate, but do you know? The software I need to create interactive simulations for has several drag and drop actions built into it. I’m guessing there may be no interactive software simulation creation tool on the market today that can capture such software events? Would appreciate if you have any insight into this. Thanks so much!

      Hey Marc, I don’t know of a tool that lets you practice a dragging action in a software simulation. I have tried my hand at manually building something. We were doing Excel training and wanted to have them practice dragging the AutoFill handle. I got pretty close in Storyline with a custom drag-and-drop question and various state changes when they dragged over each cell to make it look included, but I just couldn’t ever quite get it to work well.

    I also found this VERY useful. Really clear and pacts with vital info. You deserve MUCH more praise than what I see here and on Youtube. I’m so glad that i stumbled on this masterpiece.
    Many Thanks!
