‘Tis the Season for the GIFT of Captivate

Hello, everyone! With the holiday’s officially upon us, and the countdown to Christmas underway (at least in my house!), I thought now would be the perfect time to talk about a special little surprise found in Captivate.

And quite fittingly enough, it’s called GIFT, or General Import Format Technology to be precise. But me? I’m sticking with GIFT. That said, let’s take a quick look at the words that define the acronym to get a better understanding for what it can do for your eLearning project.

GENERAL – Think of this word as ‘Universal’, meaning it is generally recognizable by most programs.
IMPORT – A great techie word that means I can bring something pre-existing into my project.
FORMAT – Like formatting you’ve done in Microsoft Word, except less alignment and more symbols.
TECHNOLOGY – Electronic. Hmm, maybe they just needed another word because GIF was taken?
