Rapid eLearning Through Software Simulations And Screencasts

Upside Learning

Previously when I discussed freeform and template-based rapid content authoring tools, I kept software simulation tools aside. The main reason was that such simulation tools are not always used for developing just any type of learning but focused on training content creation for a specific software application or system. The software simulation in turn, can be divided into screen capturing tools and interactive simulation development tools.

eLEARNING DEVELOPMENT: How Much Time Does It Take to Create eLearning?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

One of the more common questions that I get from new eLearning developers is how much time does will take to produce published content. For instance, which eLearning tool are you going to use?   Here's another factor: how many minutes of eLearning playtime are you looking to produce? In my experience, it will take you approximately 2 hours of labor to produce 1 minute of eLearning playtime if you use Captivate or Storyline.

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.

eLearning: When Should You Record Your Voiceover Audio?

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Kevin Siegel      Adding voiceover audio to eLearning enhances the learner experience. And before you spend thousands of dollars hiring voiceover talent to record your audio, you should know: your voice is fine (nobody likes their own voice so trust me on this, yours will do nicely). I've been creating eLearning for years (and years and years). I've found that the voiceover audio does not have to be highly produced to be effective.

Rapid Authoring Tools For Creating mLearning

Upside Learning

There is still a lack of standardization across devices and amongst networks across geographical areas resulting in mlearning content development being somewhat constrained. Before beginning to develop mLearning on their own, they should keep in mind some technical considerations. Here are some authoring tools that claim to let authors develop content targeted at mobile devices. I don’t consider these significant authoring tools for mLearning development yet.

Top 10 features of Adobe Captivate 2017 for Responsive eLearning development

Adobe Captivate

Adobe Captivate 2017 offers powerful capabilities to create fully responsive eLearning courses.

In an earlier article, I described how I created an eLearning lesson that has GoAnimate characters discussing some spreadsheet problems. At a certain point, the lesson zooms in on a character’s computer screen, and suddenly a software simulation starts in Adobe Captivate.     From there, I used the NeoSpeech voices that come with Captivate to create high-quality TTS audio files.  by Jennie Ruby, CTT, COTP.

If you intend to create an eLearning course, it’s a good bet that you’re going to start the development process in Microsoft PowerPoint. However, PowerPoint is missing some key eLearning features to allow you to output finished eLearning content. For instance, PowerPoint cannot create software simulations or video demos. While in those tools, you’ll add the necessary eLearning features and then publish your content.

Too Little Time to Develop E-learning? Go for Rapid Development!

CommLab India

A traditional online learning development project can take several months. Projects that require extensive simulations, or any end-to-end e-learning development for that matter, usually take time. In a traditional setting, you can afford to spend time developing the right online learning with the intended objectives. When they have a real and immediate training challenge to be addressed, most of them opt for rapid development tools. Lower cost of development.
