Great guidline for creating podcasts using Captivate

Silke Fleischer authored a great article on using Captivate for creating podcasting. The article provides great tips including recording screen size settings and how to help viewers see mouseover cues when you are creating a software demo. I have tried using SoThink software for converting .swf files created in Captivate to podcasting format. It works pretty seamlessly.

A couple things to remember when developing for podcasting with Captivate:

  • Remember not to use click boxes, input, or anything which requires end user interactivity. After podcasting is suited for lecturing format
  • Record your audio files separately using Audacity or another audio recording device. You may be able to reduce the file size of your output
  • Stick to creating visual podcasting content in small chunks again Captivate tends to create hefty files.
