I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to know the overall gist and features of Captivate. I am very impressed at the level of information and side tips given in this tutorial. I was worried it may just skim on the overall points but it gives nice details and easy to follow for every unit. I personally have experience with Camtasia which is similar but not near as complex as this so I was able to easy follow along. I got lost on the code/building flash part but is nice to know I can come back to it later. I got lost ONLY because I have never built flash and worked with code. If I had experience with it at all, then I would have understood that little part much better.
Fast and very informative course. Thank you.
Course seems to stop short ...not sure if there are other videos to this but otherwise very useful
