Rapid Content Authoring Tools: Market, Mayhem and Reality

eLearning 24-7

This is a growing market with new vendors showing up, but at the same time, others disappearing. If a RCAT vendor tells you they have been in business for over 10 years, they are somewhat misleading, since WBT courses really didn’t start to hit the mark until 2000 and then you have limited choices on how to build. Sure there are over 100 vendors in this industry and probably 95% you have never heard of and whom have great products that can meet or beat the big players.

One Step Behind

eLearning 24-7

In 2002, a company created video courses that were AICC compliant and could be bookmarked. The vendor? Streaming to your Television. If there was ever a technology that is emerging and continues to do is – its streaming. I’m not talking about viewing online streaming video, I am talking about actually viewing video or whatever on your television. Use this powerhouse and stream it to a television or mobile device.

LMS-Agnostic eLearning Should Be Your New Strategy

JCA Solutions

That’s often a mistake. Many eLearning vendors create content that is not LMS-agnostic. Vendors whose eLearning content complies with all versions of industry standards and has been tested on multiple LMS platforms can escape many of these problems. also support AICC.

Video Learning Platforms

eLearning 24-7

1995 – Real Media arrives on the internet scene streaming an entire baseball game that probably no one watched. Video itself - streamed, recorded, edited then posted, posted without editing, etc. – may/may not include audio incl. Stream your video. Other options – depends on the vendor. Typically the video content management platform consists of (please note: that some vendors call their VCMS something else). Flashback.

State of the Authoring Tool Industry

eLearning 24-7

Bewildered on what is happening, why what is needed isn’t appearing as it should, and how is it possible that something so obvious based on where e-learning is heading, mobile is pushing and future tech is inspiring is lost among so many vendors? Confusion leads to flushed in terms of causation that some vendors in their infinite wisdom have decided it is better to jump one way than stay the course. At least SCORM support – Plenty still support AICC.

Answering your LMS Questions

eLearning 24-7

How many of you have seen vendors respond to your questions? A: Virtually every LMS vendor out there in the marketplace provides these features. Congrats, you are probably looking at less than 10 (based on my LMS directory which contains 475 vendors). Custom domains – rather than have yourcompany.vendorname.com, some systems are now offering custom domains so that your learners see whatever name you create.com and remove the vendor name.

Platinum Picks for 2021

Yes there are always variables that are beyond a vendor’s control, but a vendor should meet at least 70% of their roadmap. No surprise, many vendors do not. Vendors who signed the Customer Excellence Pledge , a stringent support certification program, are noted by (CEP).

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Looking for systematicity, the aviation industry created a subcommittee to develop standards for Computer Based Training: the Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC). The problem with committee work is well known; in this case vendors who participated wanted the standard to make it easy for their content to be made compliant. Vendors got on board, and SCORM became a more-or-less viable mechanism.

eLearning: xAPI is Geek Free and Ready to Go

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Megan Torrance      In my  previous xAPI article  I pointed to the emergence of "geek-free tools and platforms" as the hallmark that xAPI is beginning to achieve main-stream status. Now LMS providers are adding integrated xAPI capability as well, alongside their existing SCORM and AICC support. Museum staff have access to use their data without having to ask their vendors for reporting assistance.

Talented Learning

That’s exactly why I enjoyed comparing notes with today’s guest, Troy Gorostiza , President & CEO of Knowledge Stream and Co-Founder of Course Container. Troy is a “triple threat” learning innovator with deep expertise as a content development practitioner, solutions consultant and technology vendor. But sending learners to a different vendor LMS for each course makes no sense. How to make the most of vendor demos and proof-of-concept projects.

LMS, LCMS, Content Authoring: Exploring eLearning Tools

WBT Systems

A Learning Content Management System (LCMS) typically is an LMS to which the LMS vendor has added an authoring tool. Webinars – Live streaming or recorded. When creating eLearning content using content authoring tools, it is best to ensure you make sure that the LMS supports both SCORM and AICC standards for eLearning content, at a minimum. and the AICC standard is ARG 010.

The Alternative Vendors of Learning. As in years past, there are plenty of vendors in the e-learning world who love to call themselves anything but an LMS. “We are the anti-LMS”, “Non-LMS”, “Knowledge Learning Platform”, “Training Management System”, “Neuroscience learning platform” and so on and so on. . A vendor can call themselves whatever they want if it makes them happy or sad too, I guess.

LEP/LXP RFP Template

eLearning 24-7

What I am finding is that AICC is nearly gone in the LEP space (as it is with LMSs too), so if I was you, I’d seek SCORM, SCORM 1.2, PENS is nearly non-existent in this segment and CMI-5 is extremely new and few vendors have it – expect more in 2019. What I would love to see is where the admin can add “new topics” and not select only from a list that the vendor has in the system. . Most vendors in the LEP segment have this. Video streaming.

NextGen LMS Features (Now and Later)

eLearning 24-7

General items include custom domains (included at no charge), AES 256 bit for security, Multi-tenant (aka extended enterprise, should be at no charge, but some vendors charge for the children or to go multi-tenant), and API integration. API integration – yep, either the vendor has open APIs or they can accept any API – and have it work with their system (usually a fee, but that is besides the point). Earlier this week I presented a webinar on LMSs of tomorrow.

K-12 and LMSs are Broken, Who’s to Blame?

eLearning 24-7

The problem though is that there is a crisis going on in the K-12 sector and it is tied in part to e-learning (with wins and losses) and LMS vendors who serve that sector. and K-12 LMS vendors (a chunk of them). But for this article the focus will be on those school districts and K-12 LMS vendors (many who are lost in really “getting it”). Possibly three parties in the rest of the world – Schools, some Governments, and a nice slice of K-12 LMS vendors.

Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

Tony Karrer

We are developing a SCORM or AICC compliant course either custom or using an authoring tool. Note: there have been cases where we needed to go to HTTP stream tracking software to figure out what was wrong. Do any LMS vendors provide test beds for people to test their course? 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).

SCORM 100

Why are there so few eLearning millionaires?

Unicorn Training

There was no such thing as SCORM or AICC to worry about as there were no LMSs. In this extract from a blog article, first published in Elearning Age in 2013, Peter Phillips looks at the commercial development of bespoke eLearning, and its growth from a small fragmented cottage industry into today’s much larger fragmented cottage industry. Life was simple in the early days of e-learning, before anyone had yet invented the term.

You can contact vendors directly thru FindAnLMS – watch videos, download/read case studies, whitepapers and much more. We will be constantly adding vendors.

Experience API

Answer: We keep a list of all the products and vendors we’re aware of that are adopting xAPI at./adopters. With xAPI, various vendors have created products that utilize the specification, allowing you to share your data between products and store it where you want to store it. You’re not allowed to talk about social media, mobile internet or video streaming services. do they need to work with consulants or vendors to do it?
