Adobe Captivate 5.5: Sample eLearning Slides

Thought I’d share some sample eLearning slides from a project I did a few years ago. I created this course in Adobe Captivate 5.5 and I’ve replaced most of the written content with placeholder text. May you be inspired!

    I like these layouts. I also like the title and subtitle fonts. Can you share what these fonts are?

      Thank you Lindsey! Oh gosh this is from several yrs ago, I do remember that the thicker, chunky font is “Adobe Poplar” I dont remember the other two fonts… I’ll try to locate a CPTX version of the file to check and let you know! :)

  2. These slides look great! I have a lot of trouble making Captivate slides look professional, aligning things between slides, etc.

    Any tips, or any resources you know of? (Particularly re consistent alignment.)

    I much prefer Articulate Presenter, because it’s based on PPT that I find a lot easier to use – but that might just be because of familiarity.

    Thanks!

      Thanks Craig! Not sure which version of Adobe Captivate you use but as far as I know they all have “Align” and “Distribute” tools.. Just CTRL+Click all the shapes/text you want aligned and right click the mouse so you pull up the right-click menu. On the menu there’s an “Align” sub-menu that allows you to align all the shapes, distribute them evenly or even resize them all to the same height, width, etc. I use this tool ALL THE TIME to get everything lined up and evenly spaced. The same feature also exists in Articulate Storyline. :)

      One more thing – if you really like Articulate Presenter because it’s based on PPT you might also really like Articulate Storyline! It has tons of awesome functionalities and its so easy to make nice designs with it. Also – you should find the transition somewhat easier than using Adobe Products since Articulate storyline also uses the “Ribbon” layout and is much more similar to PPT and Microsoft applications.
