  • Kari Knisely
    Great and VERY Informative

    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.
