TechSmith Camtasia Studio 8: One Smart Player

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel    When you are ready to make a Camtasia project available to your learners, you need to Produce it. Choosing the Produce and Share menu item (File menu) takes the source content and outputs it into a format that can be viewed by the learner. Arguably, the most common way to publish a Camtasia project is as a Flash SWF. This is an excellent solution because SWF files can be used by the vast majority of the world's personal computers, browsers and operating systems. According to Adobe, the Flash Player is installed on most of the world's computers.

The networked computer rather complicates the choice of learning media, primarily because the Internet accommodates both synchronous and asynchronous communication. If, as a learner, you want to collaborate with your peers in real-time, you can do so with all sorts of tools from simple text chat, to online telephony using tools like Skype, through to sophisticated web conferencing systems which provide a virtual classroom experience. Already the Internet combines many of the benefits of face-to-face and offline media. Maybe one day it will surpass them both. little pragmatism. Blog blended

Stoatly Different

On day two of the Learning Technologies conference I ran a well-attended session on game-based learning, with a specific focus on application in the workplace, impact and cost. I was (and still am) of the opinion that it is something of a fringe subject for the Learning Tech world, but the size of the audience suggests otherwise. Another interesting insight was the crowds keenness to explore gamification a bit more – it was certainly one of the more popular areas I touched on. So here’s a list of things I referenced. If I miss any, let me know. or see: PixelLearning. Manga High.

Personas in Program Design

CLO Magazine

There is a new way to define the needs for each role within your workforce. The world has become highly interconnected, more mobile and more dynamic. Learning needs and opportunities now occur everywhere and at all times. As learning leaders we have to shift our design paradigm every few years as technology and work environments change. In addition to these changes in our working environment, organizations are becoming more specialized and flatter. Here you should perform audience analysis, understanding the learner’s existing knowledge, skills, needs and other relevant characteristics.
