2008 2009

Tony Karrer

It's always interesting to look back at the past year - 2008, think about what has changed for me during the year, and think about what that means for the next year - 2009. My blog is really the hub of my thinking and activity, so by going back through posts for the 2008, it gives me a pretty good perspective on what's been happening inside my head during 2008. To do my review, I first looked at what I was writing about and what people were reading on my blog in 2008.

Starting Authoring Tool

Clark Quinn

I've seen all sorts of software- Dreamweaver, Lectora, Captivate, Flash etc etc mentioned in job ads, but don't really know which ones to choose in order to get a well rounded working knowledge of how to build a course. A very close third would be the Lectora Free Trial. In this case, I might recommend choosing Lectora as it is a little different in how you work through things.

First eLearning?

Clark Quinn

Apparently Udutu is free to author in, and there are lots of tools out there, SmartBuilder, Lectora, etc. This month’s Big Question from the Learning Circuit’s blog is, basically, where do you begin? Of course, that begs the question: what do you already know? Design, ID, a tool, ? However, it appears that the question sort of assumes a preexisting master’s in ID/IT.

eLearning Guild Authoring & Development Tools Research Report (2008)

Then I went on to show about 12 tools in more detail – some of which would probably make it onto a top ten list (Flash, Captivate, Articulate, and Lectora) – the remaining tools trying to hit at some of the other options out there (Smart Builder, eXe, Udutu, Thinking Worlds, Raptivity, Flypaper, Mohive, and Atlantic Link). I did dig up the eLearning Guild Authoring Tools Research Report (January 2008).

However, there is still a steep learning curve understanding all of Lectora’s power and control.

As a culmination of our Corporate Track, students are required to answer an e-learning request for proposal (RFP), create a prototype of the proposed solution and give a 20 minute sales presentation to a group of representatives from various positons within the field of e-learning.

Help, I have an Instructional Design Master's Degree and I Can't Create E-Learning

Kapp Notes

Once you master something like Lectora or TrainerSoft, you will have the basics needed to master similar programs. This month's ASTD Big Question relates to a person who graduated from a theory-only program in Instructional Design and was not provided with the experience of actually creating instruction using any of the latest tools. So the question is: What advice would you give to someone who has no experience with e-learning development tools? Where do you start?

Lectora. I choose Lectora as the next piece of my tool kit. Lectora has the option to import from PowerPoint so I can still use PowerPoint to storyboard the content. Articulate and Lectora do not do simulations. My current plan is to use Captivate to create flash simulations that can be embedded in content created by Articulate or Lectora.

Friday, February 08, 2008 Instructional Designer as Consultant? See part one: Instructional Design as a Spectrum ) In eLearning Magazines predictions for 2008 , Patti Shank said this: Learning content, activity, and assessment authoring tools continue to improve. There are great tools with a short learning curve (for example, Adobe Captivate and Articulate Presenter) and tools with a longer learning curve that are really excellent (for example, Lectora, and Flashform).

eLearning Authoring Tool

Tony Karrer

Note: this is more a question of what the tool produces (Flash vs. HTML and how clean the resulting HTML is - there are some complaints about Lectora produced HTML). Lectora has a long way to go before it reaches the flexibility and efficiency of a courseware framework (XML > core media > engine). Looking back at my post about eLearning Authoring Tools - and particularly whether custom or off-the-shelf is the way to go, I've been interested in seeing the varied response.

I've seen all sorts of software- Dreamweaver, Lectora, Captivate, Flash etc etc mentioned in job ads, but don't really know which ones to choose in order to get a well rounded working knowledge of how to build a course. This month's question comes from a series of questions I've received recently on my blog all asking some form of, "I'm interested in eLearning. What should I do first?"

Learning Developments: I'm not yet Captivated by Lectora

Jan 13, 2009 Im not yet Captivated by Lectora Im putting together a self-paced web-based training course for how to order textbooks using a PeopleSoft application. Im using Lectora to develop a SCORM package that will eventually be imported and used in the LMS. So far Ive found Lectora to be a good course development tool. The problem I am facing now is how to communicate with the flash objects I use in Lectora. Next step.contact Lectora Support.

Who wants to design elearning using techniques that haven’t changed since 2008? Budget limits. Deadlines. Legacy tools. They don’t have to mean sacrificing creativity, engagement, or effectiveness.
