LMSs that kick ass - OutStart

Janet Clarey

By way of background, Jeff told me that OutStart has two flavors: Participate, their general social software solution and, their SaaS solution which includes LMS, collaborative authoring, and social media specifically configured to support learning. Rather we see social media platforms and LMSs as two distinct systems. LMSs control, track and report on formal learning initiatives while a social media platform enables rather than controls informal learning. Tags: Social Media LMS Brandon Hall kick-ass Each has very different objectives.

Rapid (Collaborative) Authoring Tools for developers/SMEs in multiple locations

Janet Clarey

I’ve been slicing and dicing our Authoring Tool KnowledgeBase and doing some online research in response to a question about collaborative rapid authoring tools that developers in multiple locations can use.

MyUdutu: One of those best kept secrets in e-learning authoring tools

Janet Clarey

I’ve used a bunch of desktop authoring tools – Lectora, Dreamweaver, Authorware, Captivate, and Articulate to name a few. haven’t really used a lot of web-based authoring tools though. I was kind of out of that aspect (development) of e-learning at the time they started becoming more mainstream. spent an hour or so with Roger from Udutu looking at their authoring tool and have to say I’m really kind of blown away as to its capabilities. Some other tidbits in bullet points:: Any platform – Mac, Linux, Windows environment.

Google-Assisted “Search� Learning…but pls don’t say “according to Google�

Janet Clarey

While some would argue that a Google search is not ‘real learning,’ search (and other) tools from Google appear to have pedagogical uses. How you harness the potential of this ‘quick ‘n dirty,’ ubiquitous search platform depends, of course, on how you use it and what tools you use beyond its basic search capability. The ubiquity of the platform is what makes it worthy of consideration for supporting workplace learning. Synonyms (~term), vocabulary development (Google Image Labeler), and listing and brainstorming (Google Sets) are other tools.
