For educators, the current COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront a need which has been largely ignored by brick-and-mortar educational institutions for many years now — how can we provide legitimate online resources for our students to leverage when we are not able to teach face-to-face?
The historic challenge for educators is with developing such custom, scalable resources when their jobs have them pinned to classrooms in the act of teaching. Now, the game has changed, but many educators find themselves with little time to get ahead of the game — and facing a big technology challenge: how to ramp up enough to meet the needs of their students.
Right now Adobe is doing many things to make it easier to meet the needs of educators, including online seminars to help them learn about extended free trials of education-aligned software to give you plenty of time to get up to speed. Adobe Captivate is a simple-to-use software application that will let you capture your lectures, and any on-screen software that you like to use at the same time.
From now until May 31, 2020, we are extending the Adobe Captivate free trial to 90 days, and providing a series of such webinars to help you meet the challenge of delivering educational content online, now and into the future.
The experience of converting your classroom lessons to online learning can be very similar to working in your classroom, sharing anything from a PowerPoint deck to Starry Night Education. This allows you to deliver the lessons in your own way and still share content with your students. You can Join Dr. Pooja Jaisingh’s seminar on application capture with Adobe Captivate in North America, Australia, and Europe.
You can also use Adobe Captivate to rapidly create online tests and quizzes. You can use Captivate to import or create quizzes, and rely on Captivate to format them for you. The tool will also allow you to publish those quizzes in your school’s Learning Management system.
