I’ve created a couple posts and videos about how to make an iPad application with Adobe Captivate. This one is a winner though. No command line hacks. No complicated setup. You can watch the video here.
In the video, I’m combining a few different technologies to make it happen:
- Adobe Captivate: I made a simple Captivate project (1024×768) and published out an SWF (Flash) file. Download a free trial here
- Hopefully, a tool like the HTML5 Converter for Captivate would be integrated as a publish setting in Captivate. Nothing official has been announced about this, but you would think it would be an obvious move.
- On the Adobe Labs website, the page you download the converter has some documentation about what works and what doesn’t. Not all features in Captivate are supported yet.
- You don’t have to use PhoneGap to produce content for the iPad. After converting your SWF file, you could create a SCORM bundle from the output and add that into your LMS or any other website. It’s just HTML at that point.
- I’m using TestFlightApp.com do put the app on our iPad. You can also sync the app in iTunes.
