Adobe Captivate is an application used to create eLearning content. It was originally developed only for Windows but was expanded to macOS with the release of version 5.

Captivate allows you to create electronic learning content, such as video demonstrations, games, quizzes, screencasts, podcasts, training videos, and software simulations. Captivate uses its own proprietary file format for saving projects and templates and can import various video, audio, and image formats, such as MPEG and WMV. The application can even convert Microsoft PowerPoint presentations to the Flash format.

Captivate allows you to create responsive content customized for desktop, tablet, and mobile screen sizes. The application comes with a wide selection of themes while allowing you to create your own custom themes. It also provides HTML5 publishing capabilities, along with native support for importing HTML5 animations.

Captivate is an application that provides an abundance of tools for creating original and engaging eLearning content. However, you don't have to be an expert to use these tools, as the application features a deep library of pre-made content and helpful tutorials. Adobe Captivate is a good choice for any educator looking to create interactive content that will teach others.
