xAPI, LRS – The Interview

eLearning 24-7

We intentionally licensed the specification Apache 2.0 Today’s post is quite unique since it takes a different path than previous posts. xAPI and LRS (Learning Record Stores) have been in the news and frankly everywhere within the e-learning industry in the past 1.5 years. In early December, I decided to present the real facts, the real insight and eradicate the confusion. Absolutely.

It’s because xAPI is licensed Apache 2.0 xAPI will forever be Apache 2.0 Megan and I find ourselves grateful, as the year comes to a close. 2015 gave MakingBetter an amazing journey that was full of surprises.

Previewing in Lectora

Learning Developments

I installed the Apache web server and send my Lectora HTML output to a folder under the htdocs on Apache. I'm still wiggling my way through the ins and outs of Lectora. The Lectora support team has been very helpful. I've discovered some things I'd like to share. Limitations on built-in preview. Up to a certain point, the built in preview functionality works great. But once you start doing advanced techniques such as using flash to set Lectora variables, the preview will not work. Limitations on HTML preview. Web Server based preview. Lectora

Connection Error in Slide Video

Adobe Captivate

All you need to do is publish the project and upload the entire publish folder to the server – Some cases just a web server (IIS, Apache etc) and other cases to an LMS. There has been some threads in user forum about the connection error which learners get in Slide Video. I got a chance to closely analyze many of these specific issues and in all the cases it turned out to be server configuration problems. Some background Info: When you insert video into Captivate as Slide Video, it by default is configured to be progressive download.

E-Learning, the Cathedral and the Bazaar: Courseware Development Approaches

The E-Learning Curve

In Raymond's view, most well-known OSS products including Linux, Apache, and the GNU Compiler Collection align with the Bazaar model. or Top-down versus Bottom-up approaches to content design. In his 1997 essay The Cathedral and the Bazaar , open source evangelist Eric S. open to the point of promiscuity. In this so-called Bazaar Model, roles are not clearly defined. Brooks, Jr. 1995).

A Toolkit to Develop E-Learning in an Open (XML) Environment

The E-Learning Curve

Returning from content development theory , the gratis/libre debate, and the pros and cons of each approach, this post will focus on the range of tools that you need to develop e-learning content in a (relatively) open environment. In my view, this means taking an XML-based approach to your e-learning development environment.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 Applications in Learning. It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions. I'm writing this post for both attendees of the session to have some notes and for people who were not at the session to hopefully get value from the discussion that happened there. as I expected.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

A Budding Relationship for Captivate and Lectora

When previewing to test this out I exported to HTML and ran on an Apache server on my local desktop. I've been working with Lectora and Captivate to create my eLearning content (see Jan 13th I'm not yet Captivated by Lectora ). Use Javascript calls from within Captivate to write to variables in Lectora. Call a Javascript flash API from Lectora to pull the values out of the flash object.

Apache Lenya - Document management, Collaboration, Compliance, records management, business process management, business rules management, retention management, indexing, search and file transfer.

Sometimes it will be necessary to bring in learning design expertise, or programming expertise, or you may have to buy or lease some learning technologies to help you meet your goals. I call this process "dancing with vendors" (with apologies to Kevin Costner). Charlene Douglas has a unique perspective on client-vendor relationships. Here are my questions, and her to-do lists.
