In your Captivate elearning lessons, you can import external image files as slide backgrounds or repurpose an image already in the library. Slide background images do not count as slide objects, have no timeline bars, and have the same durations as their assigned slides.
Stellarium is also available in Android and Ios for mobile devices. Even though not all functions found in Stellarium for personal computer is available, it is sufficient for stargazing sessions anywhere since it’s easier to carry tablets and mobile phones.
One of the most intellectually stimulating activities in science lessons is the stargazing. Aside from telescope, the other important tool in a stargazing session is the starmap or star chart.

Calc, Sheets, and Excel accepts a percentage value as numerical cell data. They are displayed as percentages in both the cell and the Formula bar, and mathematically processed like a decimal number where 100% is equal to one.
In Adobe Captivate, a checkbox allows you to transform a shape into a button. This shape can function in exactly the same manner as buttons and click boxes, while you can still customize its appearance like any other shape.
Click boxes provide a button-like interaction between the learners and the learning module without it being visible. You can overlay it on top of a static image to make it appear that the learner is clicking a part of that image.
