In the most recent update to Adobe Captivate Prime, Adobe has introduced a number of new features and enhancements.  A few of the highlights include Classroom Locations, Gamification updates, and Player TOC changes.  

Administrators can now set up a library of Classroom Locations. For each location, the administrators can set the metadata that includes Location Name, Seat Limit as well as additional information such as the Location URL. Authors and Administrators can then use these pre-configured classroom locations for setting up instructor-led training events (classroom modules).

Adobe Captivate Prime is also introducing a new Gamification task that encourages users to access the learning platform consistently and engage in the learning activities. To support this task, the Administrator can now setup a new rule that awards points if the learner carries out learning activities for 1, 2, 3, or 4 days in a week, month, or quarter.

Finally, adobe Captivate Prime is introducing significant performance enhancements for the Fluidic Player Table of Contents (TOC). Some of the changes include faster rendering of content, displaying course completion information in the TOC after the player is closed, displaying a tick mark in TOC after a module or course is completed, better support for the content types, such as PDF, video, and audio formats, and so on. Several accessibility enhancements have also been incorporated into the fluidic player TOC.  A few of these changes include support for better color and sharp contrast, as well as more prominent TOC labels.
