SAP Demonstration and Simulation

Back in 2007, I was trying to prove to the world – and myself! – that I could develop eLearning. I purchased an Adobe Captivate license and began producing demonstrations and simulations mostly for SAP because that’s what I had been training in classrooms.

In 2009, I collaborated with a couple of colleagues who were starting their own business, called Wellport (now defunct). They wanted a sample of SAP training they could post on their website. I agreed to do it so I would have a non-proprietary sample of the kind of SAP training I wanted to be hired to produce.

Back then, I did not have the awesome audio studio I have now. Neither had I been voice-coached, so the quality of the voiceover here is not up to my current standards! But the information in this demo is still pretty good. My Wellport colleagues certainly helped with that information, gave me access to SAP, created the data and tested the configuration.

Warning: this is old technology. These Flash samples won’t work well on a mobile device. Sorry about that.

The Purchasing Group field is highlighted to indicate that it is verified after the user presses Enter.

The demonstration explains each field and how it functions.

Create a Purchase Order (demonstration = I’ll show you.)

Create a Purchase Order (simulation = you try it!)

A demonstration, just so you know, is where the instructor walks you through a transaction explaining things as they go. A simulation, on the other hand, is where you get to try the transaction on your own.

The simulation has no narration but text prompts to guide you through the transaction.

So, let me know what you think! How does an SAP Purchase Order created in 2009 compare with one created today?

    This is better than you think Jane. I know you mentioned “not to standard” but I think it is great. Easy to follow. Voice isn’t bad either.

      You’ve been exploring! Thank you for your kind words. I know the Canadian Forces use SAP so this must be familiar. Have a great day!

    Hi Jane,

    I saw one of your ELH challenges, recognized your name, and wanted to take a look at your work. If this is the SAP learning you were creating in 2009, I can only imagine what you’re doing today. It makes SAP seem really accessible and easy to understand. Bravo!
