mLearning: The Time is Now

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

In what may be another boon for mLearning, last week Google released a beta tool called Swiffy , a free Flash to HTML5 converter. tried Swiffy on some of my Captivate-published SWFs and I'm sorry to report that none of them converted using the Swiffy beta. Until Swiffy will convert Captivate SWFs, it appears that Swiffy will have limited use. Do you have. Fingers crossed!

Web2.0 Opt-in Learning MOODLE and Video converters

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Example: Someone asked about converting video to play inside of a MOODLE resource and because of this conversation I now know about Media-convert.com and Mediacoder.com. One of the greatest things about the new web, or Web2.0, is the changing opt-in culture of conversations. There are many, MANY topics/conversations that I wish I could focus my time on. scan many, a smaller number are read and consumed, and an even smaller number do I engage. have been well aware of MOODLE for many years, excited enough about it to stay up to date but never having a need. Until now. Now, I have a need.

Mac Authoring Tools - Help Needed

Tony Karrer

This organization predominantly has Macs and would like to use something like Articulate or Captivate to: "convert our existing Powerpoint trainings, include quizes, track responding, track time spent enaged, insert Quicktime movies and deploy via the web." I was just asked a question and was a bit at a loss for a response. For so long, Adobe has had products on both Mac and PC, I assumed that Captivate had a Mac version - but I didn't find one. Any suggestions

Using A Game to Teach History

Kapp Notes

Also, having a sceptic who eventually converts is a nice touch for the piece. Check out this TeacherTube Video about how a teacher is using Civilization III to teach history. Good stuff. It sure beats a memorization and repetition of facts. especially like the viewpoint of the kids playing the game and learning history. I've written about similar uses of this game and other commercial games for classroom use in Commercial Games with Educational Value Here are three more games that can be used in the classroom: __ Recommended Games and Gadgets Recommended Books Content Guide

Video formats and storage

Moodle Journal

At the Yasasoft website you can download a limited free version, it will convert just about all format up to five minutes and its a really nice and easy to use piece of desktop software. also came across a reasonable online media converter the other day at vixy.net , which seems to be worth having a look at. I received a request recently from a client to produce my Moodle training resources as a set of video files, which does make a lot of sense; I have also been using more video this year on the VLE.

Confused of Brighton

Clive on Learning

With the script now 1/3 complete and with a session agreed at the eLearning Guild's DevLearn 2007 in San Jose in November, my mind is turning to how I can convert this script into a half-decent piece of e-learning to show all those folks who come along to take a look. Two situations recently have got me thinking about e-learning authoring tools. Firstly, I've been doing some more work on the script for The 30-minute masters which, if you remember, aims to teach the essentials of instructional design to subject matter experts in no more than 30 minutes. Have you ?

M is for Media

Clive on Learning

thought about using special video converters to get to the output formats I wanted, but I was worried about what all this processing would do to the quality. I only got to attend two sessions when I was at DevLearn in San Jose and both happened to be about m-learning. Now I don't have a great passion for mobile devices, probably because - working from home - I spend a lot of time in one place. Of course I love them as gadgets, but it annoys me how fiddly they are to use. If m-learning is ever going to happen, now is the time. So what will be the killer app? This worked fine too.

Birds of a feather

Clive on Learning

This got me thinking, are we just preaching to the converted? Back in early June I posted a criticism of Andrew Keen's anti-Web 2.0 book, The Cult of the Amateur. received several comments on this posting, all supportive of my position. Recently, someone who goes by the name 'anonymous' posted this comment as a riposte: "The comments on this review underline the basic thesis of the book. Nobody goes to sites that provide them with views that are alternative to their own. herds everybody of the same opinion together. Here' 'Here' indeed. Where?" am I mixing metaphors? does it matter?).
