Quizzes in ActivePresenter 7 are more than just adding a question slide and writing contents. You are free to increase or decrease the number of answers in each question, customize quiz font and style your way in just a few clicks.
What’s more, try creating random questions to test learners more effectively. Using this feature will eliminate the chance that learners can quickly finish the quiz by remembering the question sequence.
Responsive Design [New]
Use responsive design to make your projects look good on any device. This is one of the most critical additions that makes ActivePresenter even stronger. It allows creating a single project which displays perfectly on any screen size.
ActivePresenter defines five default responsive layouts which correspond to most popular device screen sizes to get you started. Of course, you can add a responsive layout to support a particular device if you want.
- Desktop with the viewport of 1280×620
- Tablet Landscape with the viewport of 1024×674
- Tablet Portrait with the viewport of 768×930
- Mobile Landscape with the viewport of 667×345
- Mobile Portrait with the viewport of 375×522
Enhance the interaction between learners and the test by taking advantage of interaction objects with:
- Rich interactions
- Events & conditional actions
Theme and Template, Slide Master, Multiple-State Object [New]
Themes and templates are available for you to create dynamic contents in the shortest amount of time because you can reuse the project preferences (e.g. slide layouts, object properties) across multiple projects. It also ensures the workflow consistency especially when multiple authors are working on same projects.
Slide Masters allow you to easily customize your slides and slide layouts. It provides a uniform appearance for your project.
On the other hand, multiple-state objects bring you a lot of advantages:
- Develop interactive contents easily without using multiple objects or constantly hide and show them in a single project.
- Declutter and simplify the Timeline. For example, to change the color of any image based on viewer actions, just use different colored states for a single image rather than inserting many objects with separate colors.
