Macromedia has announced the immediate availability of Macromedia* Captivate*, which enables anyone to easily record onscreen activity and create software demonstrations and interactive simulations. Demonstrations visually show the steps required to complete a task, instead of forcing users to learn by reading step-by-step, text-based instructions. Simulations provide an interactive learning experience that requires user input. Both content types can be automatically created with Captivate, and can include audio, animation, and scored interaction. Macromedia Captivate is available for immediate purchase from the Macromedia Online Store at http://www.macromedia.com/go/getcaptivate/.
