They have all spent 10.000 hours learning their craft. What makes people learn? You learn when you have to struggle. When you present someone with all complete crystal clear information, they will not learn. Making mistakes will make you learn, you need to push yourself to the limits, forcing mistakes. When you correct your mistakes they will trigger your brain into learning. Ruthlessly eliminate passive learning. Day 2 of the conference.

SCORM is the standard of the e-Learning industry and now and then we say less nice things about it, but it is our guarantee (most of the times) that content from our authoring systems will actually run in most LMS, and that the learners progress and results are tracked and reported. I would like to create a scorm-import export for authoring systems.

Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

Tony Karrer

I was just asked by someone about how they could test a course they were creating against a particular Learning Management System (LMS) (in this case Docent 6.5). We don't have direct access to a version of the LMS to test on. The client's staff won't give us direct access to the LMS to run tests. The client has not set up a version of the LMS just for this purpose. We'll have to figure out what this LMS does different than the SCORM test suite."
