Flash Quiz Tools

Tony Karrer

Update June 2008 - added one free flash quiz tool based on a question I received. This tool is listed at the bottom. They didn't really need tracking of user responses, instead they wanted them to be fun. I suggested a couple of tools, but then wondered if I had given them the best list of tools.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

Monday, January 07, 2008 The Value of Instructional Designers Ive been having on ongoing conversation with other instructional designers as to whether or not we need to have the technical skill sets to actually build the courses we design.

Training Standards

Tony Karrer

Until eLearning vendors bite the bullet, come to real standards on formats, and then the tools and structure can build up to support those standards, eLearning is never going to be what it can be. When CBT (CD-ROM based multimedia training) came out, there were a lot of different authoring tools and approaches that came along with it. It was hard to choose a tool because you didn't know quite what you were eventually going to do with it.

Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

Tony Karrer

We are developing a SCORM or AICC compliant course either custom or using an authoring tool. This is created using whatever authoring tool we will be using and it will contain no content. This can show you what works and doesn't work long before you author the course. We use our own so I can't vouch for these tools. Note: there have been cases where we needed to go to HTTP stream tracking software to figure out what was wrong.

Words of Wisdom*

Clark Quinn

Our vendor was very helpful, taking the necessary time to have it optimally integrated with our IT system. Our IT group changed the infrastructure a year ago, to *open source* (I don’t know what they were thinking), but fortunately my vendor says that they’d be happy to help change the installation to work with the new services architecture. We got a full fledged authoring suite and asked our trainers to develop courses.

Whatever happened to inductive learning?

Clive on Learning

The trouble is, inductive learning doesn't seem to have been what the developers had in mind when they designed the latest generation of rapid e-learning authoring tools. Over the past few days, I've been testing out a number of tools trying to implement a short section from the script for the 30-minute masters. Either way, Justin will never know, because there's no tracking. Try implementing this in a modern authoring tool!

APIs and Mashups r ur new ABCs for E-Learning

eLearning 24-7

Unfortunately, too many vendors in the e-learning space have failed to see the power and potential of this capability, and have decided to ignore them. An API (Application Program Interface) enables an interface from a piece of software to communicate with another piece of software (in its simplest form) or multiple pieces of software (called a mashup). However there are vendors who sell their API solution wrapped in a piece of software. LMS Vendors.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Corporate Moodle: A Tipping Point?

Learning Visions

There’s no vendor who creates Moodle per say. Kineo has recently worked on creating a classroom management add-on for a corporate client and has a fabulous Moodle reporting tool. Because (1) LMSs in corporations are primarily used to track stuff (IMHO) so until open source is truly able to slice and dice data (often custom reports) for executives they won't replace commercial LMSs. (2) Cammy, I think you're on the right track. Moodle is an awesome tool.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: e-Learning Content & Version Control

Learning Visions

She raised the question about e-Learning content and how well companies keep track of content updates. Certainly with the rise of rapid e-Learning tools and the increase in SME-published content well start to see an increase in the frequency of updates to e-Learning material. As an e-Learning vendor, I think its our responsibility to make sure that our clients have thought this through. We need to find out what tools our clients use and what systems they have in place.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Off-the-Shelf Content: Help!

Learning Visions

Say, if youre purchasing a course library from SkillSoft or some other vendor: If a client has their own LMS, do they purchase the courses outright and host them on their own servers? If so, is the vendor able to track usage or do they just sell the content for a flat fee based on LMS seat size? Or do clients purchase courses that can be launched through their LMS, but that are hosted by the off-the-shelf vendor?
