Captivate 6 notes from the web:
Smart learning Interactions: I have drooled over Articulates Engage from the first time I saw it a couple of years ago. Now Captivate 6 has smart learning interactions without having to use Flash or codes. Use of such interactions as, Accordion, Tabs (previously, I created my own), Timeline, Pyramid Stack, Glossary and Process circle not only make developing faster but make eLearning more engaging.
Actors: I have gone online, bought, or created my own characters for my learning content. Captivate 6 comes with a variety of characters with different expressions and poses making it much faster to create content. You can even import your own characters. The first time you try to use these actors don’t be surprised that you have to download them, they are placed in: Library/Documents/Adobe/eLearning Assets/Characters/Character Classifications
Hyperlinks: I have spent a lot of time in the past changing the font color and importing a click box over text in order to create the Hyperlink look and feel. Captivate 6 has a hyperlink feature that not only changes to the color automatically, but you can change the text so that it doesn’t look like a long URL. And I am ecstatic that the default is to open in a new window, not current. Not only that, you can also put the hyperlink on a master slide, so you don’t have to keep re-creating it!
Object Grouping: Another fantastic feature in Captivate 6 is the Object Grouping. If you have many assets on one slide you can group these together to keep your timeline organized. In fact, you can also apply effects and use the entire group in Advanced Actions and Widgets – that is pretty cool and will definitely save some time.
High Definition Video Screen Capture: HD video capture is awesome for quick instructional videos. It actually captures real time video capture including complex motion. You can publish directly as MP4 or to You Tube or you can edit the video. When editing the video project becomes a .cpvc file, there are no thumbnails, instead you have a timeline. Editing using the timeline is much easier than using the thumbnails and can save a significant amount of time. Additionally, Captivate has added such things as transitions pan and zoom and you can even insert text captions and images into the video. HD video capture is very smooth and is easy to learn, edit, and publish.
HD Screencast: Quickly create HD-quality demos within the new “capture-as-a-video” workflow. Edit video and add transitions, smart shapes, audio and captions. Insert another video in a picture-in-picture format and publish it to YouTube – all within the same UI.
Attractive Out-of-the-Box Assets: Select from a wide range of preloaded actors and set them against customizable backdrops to give content a more personal touch. Include additional interactivity by inserting smart learning interactions, such as widgets, animated rollovers and more, with just a few clicks.
HTML5 Publishing with Pause and Resume Capabilities: Publish interactive HTML5 eLearning content that is accessible from both iOS and Android devices and leverage mobile presets to help ensure seamless mobile distribution. By publishing eLearning content as both SWF and HTML5, learners can begin a course on their desktop, pause and later resume on a different device.
Enhanced PowerPoint Roundtripping: Import PowerPoint 2010 slides along with objects, animations and multimedia into eLearning projects with better fidelity conversation workflow. Easily update pre-existing PowerPoint content, which will be automatically synced via the dynamically linked import feature.
Enhanced Quizzing: Utilize pre-tests to assess the knowledge, skill level or training needs of individual learners. Based on results, direct learners to the appropriate section and use post-tests to gauge what resonates. Allow learners to revisit a relevant section after answering a quiz question incorrectly and, if necessary, discourage guesswork by penalizing for wrong answers.

NOTES for Captivate 6 and SumTotal
When you publish courses as HTML5 and upload to SumTotal, SumTotal doesn’t recognize the ZIP file.
Publish the courses as SWF files instead.
HTML5 output files require that the document mode in Internet Explorer is set to IE9 Standards. SumTotal does not support the IE9 Standards document mode. Therefore, the course cannot be uploaded.
Courses published and uploaded as SWF files launch as expected from SumTotal. The SWF files do not need IE9 Standards document mode and can run in IE9 Quirks mode, which SumTotal supports.
