Using Adobe Acrobat to create web-based training (CBT/WBT)
Posted on 2013-01-07
I have been experimenting with varios ways of creating training (direct editing of HTML and using Adobe Captivate to create interactive CBTs and using Techsmith Camtasia Studio to create videos with quizzes). None are ideal and all are pretty time-consuming.
I'm now looking at Acrobat. In theory, this should allow me to have a common Word source which we can then adapt and convert to PDF for guides, CBT and even contect-sensitive Help at screen-level.
First of all - do you know of a good source of info on Acrobat, aimed at a reasonably knowledgeable user (but not a developer - I don't, for example, speak Java)?
Secondly, is there a way of jumping to a page within a PDF, accepting text input from the user (with validation if possible) in field one, then accepting input in field two, then jumping to another page in the same PDF when the user clicks a hyperlink or button? A typical simple example is attached.
