I'm looking to update an internal presentation tool and I'm wondering if there is a new Adobe application or feature I'm not familar with. The presentation starts with a common slide show, but then I need the ability to quickly jump around, in and out to specific case studies slide shows. It would be nice to dynamically search for these case studies by name, customer, industry, (categories I can create).
In the past I have used Adobe Flash, expoerted EXE files for co-workers to use. However, the files got too big and Flash would be unstable. Currently I'm using html tool to layout an internal web site, co-workers need to download an entire file directory to run locally. Muse was so promising and easy for others to use. I wanted to use XD, but need it to play videos, and I cant always rely on internet connection during presentations, or have every co-worker need a creative cloud account to view. Powerpoint and Interactive PDF kinda work, but I dont like the linear clickable presentation flow. I'd want it stop at the end of each case study and not advance to the next project. I am thinking about using Adobe Animation again, I just dont know how much support there will be for it in the future.
This sounds like e-learning to me. I'll move your question to the Captivate / e-learning community where the experts there can better answer your questions. NOTE: Captivate is a separate purchase, not included with Creative Cloud.
Here is an upcoming webinar that is free to join. It's on getting started with Adobe Captivate. My guess is that attending this webinar would answer many of the questions you might have on Adobe Captivate and determine if it's the correct tool for you.
