5 Min of Style Notes: 06/20/12

Thanks to those who attended.

Today we discussed the instructional value of Text Entry Steps in a software simulation.

We made reference to:

  • The proper procedure as outlined in 13.1.2 of the Venza Group ID Style Guide.
  • New developments in Adobe Captivate’s 6.0 that allow learners within a simulation to input text in fields which become locked throughout the training stage, on subsequent screens.
  • The pedagogical value of inputting text in simulation training.
  • The commitment of our development team to investigate the addition of a locked text field feature to the Venza Group’s SimArete simulation building tool, similar to that which has been released via Adobe in Captivate 6.0.
