LMS Tracking of Podcasts and Video Casts

Tony Karrer

They currently provide some podcasts and video casts, but would like to track the new content that is being developed now. They do want to track this for helping to make sure that the sales force gets through the content. The tracking would only be that they did a portion. Of course, that assumes that they don’t need to track going through the content and that there are assessments.

PowerPoint 2010: Audio Won't Trim? Compress It!

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

The first track was 2 minutes long, but you trimmed it down to 15 seconds and set it to play across slides. Perhaps your plan was to play the first track when the presentation started, move to the second slide, let the track end and then have the second track start. You probably set the second track on the second slide to start right after the first track ended, which is the correct process. by AJ George.
