eLearning Development: Articulate Versus Code

B Online Learning

In the eLearning world, it’s no secret that there’s a divide between people who build courses from scratch using HTML and JavaScript and people who use an authoring tool for the whole course creation. I’ve often heard web developers say that eLearning authoring tools are cookie-cutter solutions. Here’s a snapshot comparison of the two development methods: . Code Development. Articulate Development. Development process.

Expectations From eLearning Authoring Tools

Upside Learning

I came across this mind map by Cammy Bean which covers nearly all the tools available for creating/authoring eLearning content. For example, a feature that lets users “import” existing PowerPoint presentations into the authoring tool is different from authoring and publishing eLearning content from within PowerPoint (using a plug-in toolbar).

Changing Landscape in E-Learning

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Vikas: What are clients looking for in eLearning programs? Jim: What strikes me is that there is a phenomenal change in the eLearning industry in comparison to when eLearning was first introduced. As eLearning is ever growing and getting interactive likewise the clients' demands have also grown over the years. They face a lot of cost pressure on eLearning programs. Vikas: How have eLearning development practices and processes changed over the past several years?

5 Things To Look Out For While Choosing An LMS

Origin Learning

Whichever hosting method you choose, your LMS must be easy to integrate with third party applications. If secure data transfer is more of a concern for you, AICC is the right choice otherwise common rapid eLearning development tools work well with both SCORM and AICC. Choosing the right Learning Management System is an arduous task and if not done carefully, may lead to a substantial waste of time and money.

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

LearnUpon

As we approach the end of our SCORM series, in many ways it’s just the beginning for eLearning content standards. While SCORM has dominated the field since it was developed, there are now new kids on the block. This final post provides a perfect opportunity to look to the future of eLearning content development and consider the road ahead. eLearning past: AICC. I was recently asked about what advantages AICC offers over a standard like SCORM.

Selection in Agile Learning Design

Big Dog, Little Dog

The fourth concept of PODSI (Plan, Orientation, Design, Select, & Iterate) is selecting and developing the learning objects that best promotes learning. However, the selection of the learning objects in Agile Learning Design is not really about SCORM or AICC standards, but rather about providing the best learning environment that supports the Agile ethos — "Solutions that promote and speed the development of learning processes over comprehensive documentation.".

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

If you’re looking to get started with xAPI on a limited budget or want to do a lot of development yourself, an Open Source LRS is a good option. We are early in the adoption process and are developing processes for helping remind users to report their learning when not on cues.org. Our eLearning courses include activities and testing that are tracked by Watershed. What tool is used to develop content that can send this type of data to report on?
