OpenOffice Impress - a rapid tool?

Learning Rocks

If you aren't entirely ready to leap on line for your documentation handling courtesy of the likes of Google Docs, you have one very powerful option, OpenOffice. I've just noticed that OpenOffice Impress , the counterpart to the well used 'authoring tool' PowerPoint, has the option to output to Flash directly. The open source movement supports pretty much all we have to offer. It is entirely possible to create blogs, wikis, elearning courseware and even LMSs for free. has anyone used that feature? How easily can this be "SCORMed"? Anyone tried that?

Open source in corporate learning – The need to take it seriously.

Learning Cafe

There is a whole range of open source applications that you can use including browsers e.g. Firefox (link) and alternates to Microsoft Office such as OpenOffice. The world of learning has been buffeted by the GFC and its after effects. Almost all forms of learning have been impacted. This dark cloud as always, come with a silver lining. So what is the open source approach ?

What would Dr. Seuss say about online communities.

L@Fw2008 Dawn Foster View more OpenOffice presentations from ISITEDesign. An excellent presentation that drives home the point using "nonsense rhymes." The appeal of nonsense rhymes dates back to our childhood, and this creates an instant feeling of identificaiton, thus keeping us hooked to the slides. This also increases the recall factor manifold. The rhymes reminded me strongly of Edward Lear's "Owl and Pussy cat" in their pea green boat. Coupled with the "translation," we are not likely to forget the points about online communities mentioned here in a hurry. Enjoy the slideshow.

Free and easy in Luxembourg

Clive on Learning

The biggest challenge I set myself was to demonstrate features of Firefox, OpenOffice, Moodle, MediaWiki, Gimp, Audacity, eXe, FreeMind and Wink, some of which I had only recently downloaded. With an hour to fill, I had plenty of time for interactivity, so had each participant complete their own top ten software tools list, to see how many were free (quite a lot).

Quick and Dirty Comment Analysis

Experiencing eLearning

actually manually typed the numbers into OpenOffice Calc (after scanning the list of posts in my WordPress dashboard for posts with a decent amount of comments). Michele Martin asked how I did the comment analysis to see which posts have generated the most conversation. This is task 18 in the comment challenge. However, there is a faster way to get a “quick and dirty&# analysis of your comments and conversations. AideRSS is a tool that lets you filter a feed for the “best&# posts. It ranks your posts by how much conversation they have generated, based on comments, del.icio.us

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.

Training Standards

Tony Karrer

Should we be supporting OpenOffice? Bill Sawyer posted in response to my Conversation Topics post. You can find posts aggregated via eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations. I've not met Bill before, and this was a great way to start. He is definitely challenged and thinking a lot about training standards. Bill has quite a few questions in his post: eLearning is suffering from the Beta/VHS or Blu-ray/HD-DVD challenge. In fact, it is probably even more systemic. For example, it is elearning? eLearning? Learning? or E-Learning? I'm not really going to address this much. Then yes.
