Bookmarking a lesson provides the learner an opportunity to continue viewing a lesson from the exact spot where they left off. If you've uploaded your eLearning lesson into a Learning Management System, bookmarking is enabled by default in every lesson that you publish.
- Open or create a Captivate project and choose Project > Table of Contents. (The Skin Editor Window opens.)
- From the left of the Skin Editor Window, select Show TOC.
- From the bottom of the window, click the Settingsbutton. (The TOC Settings dialog box opens.)
- From the Runtime Options area, select Self-Paced Learning.
- Click the OK button.
By enabling Self-Paced Learning, you have basically activated Captivate's bookmarking feature. You can test the bookmarking by publishing the project and then opening the HTML file with any web browser.
Move through a few slides in the lesson and then close the browser window. Reopen the HTML file and instead of the lesson simply starting over from the beginning, you (and your learners) will see the "Continue from where you stopped last time?" message shown below. How cool is that?
If you'd like to see the Self-Paced Learning option in action, check out the video I created on the IconLogic YouTube channel.
