Authoring Tool Trends for 2017

eLearning 24-7

The authoring tool industry continues to evolve. I won’t regurgitate everything that appeared and did not for that matter in the authoring tool space as a whole in 2016, but a few have crossed over in a positive light, which is pushing trend. Authoring tool style.

Authoring Tool Market – What I am seeing

eLearning 24-7

Because the industry as a whole is a lemming, I expect more vendors to come on board. Right now I am doing a survey on authoring tools (more on this at the end of the post) and so far 100% of all respondents state that HTML5 output is required in an authoring tool. I do believe that HTML5 output will continue to grow as an authoring tool feature. The numbers clearly indicate that is on the fast track for real growth in the coming year. .

State of the E-Learning Industry 2019

eLearning 24-7

Change of messaging, and the seemingly misunderstanding by vendors that there is a difference between training and L&D. What I hear a lot is “L&D” and not training, when they identify who they are targeting for the tools, platforms, etc. SaaS authoring tools, trying to become hybrid Lite LMSs (a return of a trend I totally disliked back in 2010-2014). LRSs not being utilized by vendors who have it in their systems. The vendor.

Authoring Tools. In 2012 it has been all about collaborative/peer review with authoring products, and it still will be in 2013, but the avatars/actors with/without backgrounds are going to be in “fuego” Where can it go? In 2000, I had a LMS in the cloud and felt safe.

Product Review – Articulate Storyline 2

Publish includes reporting and tracking details that you can tweak. Personally, I like this because everyone who uses software, often jumps right in and starts going, rather than take the time to read how to do things (inc. Some AT vendors have removed it as well.

The grades are in for Education focused LMSs

eLearning 24-7

Classroom management – attendance tracking is a plus. Built in authoring tool – never hurts. The teachers I know, do not have several hundred or even a thousand dollars around to purchase a 3rd party authoring tool. Assessment tool.

Product Review: GeoLearning GeoMaestro

eLearning 24-7

Offers Lectora (rapid content authoring tool) as a separate option which can integrate with GeoMaestro. It is truly amazing on how vendors seem to think lots of stuff on the page, is the way to go and navigation is just a requirement. Secondly, a typically very common is the integration to the back end of the LMS – reports, tracking, etc. Why vendors still think this is not needed or used, makes no sense. Content Authoring Tool.

Consider the internet; developments on top of the TCP/IP protocol like SMTP and HTML allowed a variety of tools to work together to bring us email and the world wide web. Initially, when you developed eLearning, you were pretty much dependent on the tool you developed it in.

Latest E-Learning News and Notes

Ecosystems for authoring tools – I’m not talking about it in the same scope of the LMS space (which I foresaw and which is occurring), rather think of it as a one stop shop for all your needs – I see this coming more by 2016, but there are already vendors doing it. Tin Can is not going to be a mature level in 2015 and some vendors have even decided to do their own thing (similar to Tin Can) and go from there. Built-in authoring tools.

Current state of Gamification in the LMS Market

eLearning 24-7

40 vendors had at least three gamification features (8 of them had at least four features). Several vendors offered the ability for admin (clients) to upload their own badge. You do not need a built-in authoring tool to do this. Blue Volt was doing this back in the late 2000’s and still do it – tied to a gift card reward program; other vendors are jumping on as well (with more in 2015, but really really tiny numbers).

The Alternative Vendors of Learning. As in years past, there are plenty of vendors in the e-learning world who love to call themselves anything but an LMS. “We are the anti-LMS”, “Non-LMS”, “Knowledge Learning Platform”, “Training Management System”, “Neuroscience learning platform” and so on and so on. . A vendor can call themselves whatever they want if it makes them happy or sad too, I guess.

Courseware LMSs – Good or bad for the industry?

Maybe you scored it via Wiley, but in many possibilities you purchased the content thru your LMS vendor. It’s much easier than say going directly to the content provider, buying it from them and then having them talk to your LMS vendor to put it in for you (which, honestly you should do, because it will save you money). What if instead of focusing primarly on the LMS, you went courses first from a vendor and in return got the LMS for free.

Future Technologies – Get Ready because they could change the way we learn online

eLearning 24-7

Technology brought us the LMS, authoring tool, web conferencing and e-learning tools, just to name a few. I often bring up a company in 2000, who offered video based courses with bookmarking capability, course tracking and would work on a 56K modem. Oh, and while that is being done, still include features such as analysis tools, push notifications, user management, messaging and integrations with items such as social networking.

What if….? (E-Learning)

eLearning 24-7

What really bothers me more so, is when certain learning system vendors tell me they do not offer social or NexGen functionality because their clients either do not want it or because of security concerns by the client. I know people who have company laptops and thus cannot access this or that at home, including the installation of browser software, yet all these folks have a mobile device, in which they access sites. . The moment anyone uses the net, data tracking occurs.

I’ve been there – well, not hating it – I always thought it was the way to go (even in 2000). If yes, you will need an authoring tool. On a side note, some vendors call it “virtual classrooms” Do you want to track your learners? Think about the following: If people are going to access internally (at your company) what version of browser software do you have? If the vendor uses Flash, they might not support older versions.

But the systems that are coming into the space nowadays have ditched the robust stats for just the basic stats, which – HERE COMES THE IRONY – is how systems were appearing back in the early days – early 2000’s (as a whole). Is a vendor next gen if they offer minimal (the basics if that in some cases) statistics? Then where do you place vendors who have been around but offer the capabilities including more robust statistics?

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

The basic structure of one-way presentations, flying to convention cities, blowing an entire week at a time, and vendors going through the motions but getting few sales is counter to the culture and M.O. Note : The vintage photos in this post are from training conferences circa 2000.
