Rapid e-learning - a new convert

Clive on Learning

So call me a rapid e-learning convert I'm in the middle of designing and developing a new blended learning course on the whole subject of embedded learning/performance support. The course will consist of some synchronous and asynchronous online activities and a two-day workshop. My general philosophy is, as far as possible, to have the participants co-create the content in a wiki as an output from their work on the course. However, I thought I should create some content up front both to act as sparks for debate but also as some examples of performance support materials.

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.

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.
