Adobe today announced the introduction of Adobe Captivate Prime (opens in new tab), a new self-service Learning Management System (LMS) that allows educators to set up, deliver and track any form of learning.
- The new Fluidic Player allows learners to play videos and access PDFs, PPTs, DOCX, SCORM and AICC-compliant packages, without having to download plugins.
- A personal dashboard indicates courses completed or pending, recommended courses, skills attained, badges received and information on activities that can earn them more badges and points.
- The Adobe Captivate Prime app downloads learning content onto a tablet, makes it available for offline access and auto syncs when the learner is back online.
- Organizations can now get actionable insights by tracking all online, offline and certification training taught to their employees or external partners.
Introducing Adobe Captivate 9
Adobe Captivate 9 allows educators and instructional designers to create virtually any kind of eLearning content for both desktops and mobile devices.
Captivate 9 now extends authoring capabilities to mobile devices through the new storyboarding app Adobe Captivate Draft. When used in tandem with Captivate 9, Captivate Draft automates the process of converting ideas into storyboards complete with more complex eLearning elements, such as content and question slides and branching logic.
Courses created in Captivate 9 can be enhanced using SVG graphics or by selecting content from a new library of more than 25,000 exclusive eLearning assets, such as games, interactions, scenarios, characters and more.

Adobe Captivate Prime is priced at US$48 per year per registered user and is exclusively available in the English language.
Adobe Captivate 9 is now available worldwide. Updates from Captivate 8 and Captivate 7 (and earlier) are US$499 and US$1099, respectively. Captivate 9 is also available for US$29.99 per month as an annual subscription.
