One of the most common questions we hear during our live, online classes is how long does it typically take to create eLearning using Adobe Captivate.
The answer is dependent upon several factors, beginning with how long a lesson or course is expected to run (in minutes), your comfort-level using Adobe Captivate, access to resources, and the amount of support available to you.
We've created a calculator (developed entirely within Adobe Captivate 7 and published as a PDF) that will help you estimate the level of effort necessary to create eLearning content.
To use the tool, simply plug in how many minutes you'd like your finished eLearning lesson to be, answer a few questions, and our calculator will determine your level of effort!
Note: To use the calculator, you will need the free Adobe Reader (version 9 or newer) and the Adobe Flash Player. Since the calculator is Flash-based, it will not work on devices that do not support Adobe Flash (such as the iPad).
