Situated Training: This example is an attempt to push Captivate to its limits. The situated training course puts the trainee in a virtual setting where they need to visit various locations, talk to characters and interact with objects. Situated training is built around a cause and effect engine and provides a vehicle to deliver problem solving training. The approach is useful to train skills such as project management and auditing. In education, think history, geography and science.
