Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Some insightful industry analysis, surrounded by a lot of marketing speak.

Are they producing high-quality e-Learning? Take the Survey!

Rapid eLearning Tools

For example, in 2007 PowerPoint to eLearning Shootout they compared: Articulate www.articulate.com Atlantic Link www.atlantic-link.co.uk PointeCast www.pointecast.com Qarbon www.qarbon.com SCATE www.scate.com Udutu www.udutu.com Atlantic link scored the highest in the shoot-out. As far as Atlantic Link, I believe that the eLearningGuild survey treated them as a Software Simulation Tool and that's part of the reason they didn't appear when I created the graphic above (2007). Page update Mar 2008. Of course, they were more looking at PPT conversion tools.

E-Learning Trade Shows + Product Reviews 4 #TK11

eLearning 24-7

Kaplan Learning Technologies – Atlantic Link & STT Trainer products. I was planning on writing about emerging technology and virtual worlds. However, with ASTD’s TechKnowledge 2011, starting next week, I’m going to hold off until after TK11, to write on virtual worlds. What I like about conferences is the ability to see the latest products and hear the pitches from the vendors. Demonstrations are crucial, whether it is a 30 minute one, with an audience or one on one, with a potential customer.  Regardless, you need to have your product out and showing.

One prediction already on target

Clive on Learning

These products will provide further competition for two online rapid e-learning authoring tools which have already achieved good success, particularly in Europe, and that's Atlantic Link and Mohive. On January 3rd I laid out my e-learning predictions for 2008. One of these was: "We'll see more online rapid e-learning authoring environments come on the market, perhaps even open source." Full details of this product are being kept under wraps until early February, but let's just say I was very impressed, and the pricing model will raise some eyebrows.

"Get Out There"

My organisation has been using the Atlantic Link e-learning authoring tool since July 2009, Atlantic Link themselves have recently been acquired by Kaplan IT so Thursday saw me getting further acquainted with the M6 Southbound en-route to a customer day hosted by Kaplan IT. For me though the afternoon proved to be the highlight of the day with Dr Richard Hyde (previous Director of Atlantic Link) providing an Instructional Design Workshop. Tuesday saw me travelling to Northampton to meet up with Mark Berthelemy from Capita L&D. Get Out There.

Confused of Brighton

Clive on Learning

Now, to arrive at a manageable number of alternatives, you have to sub-divide the market into categories: Rapid tools ( Articulate , Captivate , Atlantic Link ) as opposed to whatever the others are called ( Authorware , Lectora , etc.). Applications you install on you computer (all those mentioned above except Atlantic Link) as opposed to online services (Atlantic Link, Mohive , Alto ). Two situations recently have got me thinking about e-learning authoring tools. To achieve this while comparing apples with apples is nigh on impossible. Have you ?

RapideL-i

Clive on Learning

In Europe, Atlantic Link and Mohive are currently the online tools of preference and both appear to be reliable and extremely easy to use. I've been taking a look at an early version of RapideL's new online e-learning authoring tool, which they are calling RapideL-i. I've previously experimented with their desktop tool, RapideL Enhance, which works with Microsoft Word to generate Flash-based courses, but this is a big step forward. would have no hesitation for reaching for one of these tools if I was working on a project alone.

The big question: choosing tools

Clive on Learning

Good online tools include Atlantic Link and Mohive - mind you, they're not cheap. The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question for July is 'how should e-learning developers choose their authoring tools given the proliferation of tools on the market?' Well, I posted on this subject just last week (see Confused of Brighton ) and even listed my own top ten tools , authoring or otherwise, in a subsequent post. Nevertheless, I believe I should address the Big Question in a more measured way than in last week's rant, so here goes. For an open source alternative, try EXE.

Then I went on to show about 12 tools in more detail – some of which would probably make it onto a top ten list (Flash, Captivate, Articulate, and Lectora) – the remaining tools trying to hit at some of the other options out there (Smart Builder, eXe, Udutu, Thinking Worlds, Raptivity, Flypaper, Mohive, and Atlantic Link). I’ve been digging around to see if I can find an actual top ten list. After my session at ISPI earlier this week, someone commented that what would have really been useful is a list of the top 10 authoring tools in the market. Which market? Probably Captivate.
