The dawn of a new generation
JULY 22, 2014
To explore the practicalities of user-generated content, the Learning Cafe sponsored a webinar entitled Learner Generated Learning Content – Possibilities, mechanics and chaos? Kit, the Learning Consultant insisted the videos should be loaded on the LMS so that the time spent and results could be tracked. And yet… the world is changing. What should Ron do?

A Look Back at E-Learning in 2012
DECEMBER 19, 2012
Mobile Learning. Sadly though many still are in the dark on true mobile learning – i.e. not accessing their platform via a mobile web browser. Despite overall consumer demand (not just within e-learning) for tablets, and numbers showing that tablets are outselling notebooks, e-learning vendors as whole are sitting back and waiting. eLogic Learning. On Fire.
Time for Change: MOOCs and Learning Technology
SEPTEMBER 30, 2013
Massive open online courses are transforming learning technology. These courses are now used by professionals and more senior people to learn new topics as well. The MOOC industry began with a strong focus on excellent content and the delivery of a complete and integrated learning environment. Today’s educational startups serve both video-based content with ease and have the benefit of nearly 10 years of learning in collaboration software, online assessment software and high bandwidth access behind them. Our learning environments are pretty far behind.

A Toolkit to Develop E-Learning in an Open (XML) Environment
The E-Learning Curve
OCTOBER 6, 2009
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.
A practical guide to creating learning podcasts: part 3 – editing and distributing your podcast
MARCH 2, 2011
If you have access to professional quality software and know how to use it then great, but you’ll only need basic functionality and a simple editor like the free Audacity is all that you really require. Upload it to your learning management system or virtual learning environment. They will all be included (along with suitable pics!) in our Digital Learning Content: A Designer’s Guide e-book, due for release later in the year. In part 1 of this guide, we looked at what podcasts are and how they can be used. Post-production. Distribution.
What’s in Your Technology-Enabled Learning Toolbox?
Your Training Edge
APRIL 23, 2015
Last week, we looked at the building blocks of technology-enabled learning , from elements like learning objectives that are common across all training formats to those that are specific to digital formats, like content authoring tools. Learning objectives. All training courses and programs should have learning objectives. Audacity. Clearly defined expectations.
Great free animation software and an off key eLearning tune
JUNE 28, 2010
Me, I want to learn it as a next step towards augmented learning. While gearing myself to develop an augmented reality project (triggering virtual reality to be placed on top of a real life setting), I have one other obstacle to tackle: learning to build an animated character or object that can feature in an AR environment. Again the Moviestorm tutorials come in handy.
So what is software worth?
Clive on Learning
OCTOBER 18, 2006
At the moment I'm either using or considering using all of the following: Moodle , the open source virtual learning environment. Audacity , the free audio editor. In fact, most of the applications that I have had to purchase are engineered to quite unnecessary levels and intimidating to learn. What is the connection between computer software and women's clothing? No, idea? Let me tell you. This is most evident in women's clothing, where at shops like Zara, Mango, H&M and Top Shop, clothing is practically given away. If I had any Gucci shares, I'd be selling them.
