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.

Audio Not Playing on First Slide

Adobe Captivate

Hi there… I have a software simulation project with.wav audio on each slide and it works *perfectly* EXCEPT when I publish it to an LMS the audio doesn’t play on the first slide; it plays fine on the rest of them, but not on the first one. None of the slides have ‘play audio’ on enter, but I thought that might help so I tried it; it didn’t. The post Audio Not Playing on First Slide appeared first on eLearning.

I will outline the technical aspects of creating, recording, producing, and distributing podcasts at a later time, but for now, I want to investigate some aspects of audio delivered via podcast as a learning channel. If done correctly, ideas and meaning can be conjured up in sound as easily as a software simulation demonstrates the steps involved in formatting a spreadsheet.well, perhaps not quite so easily. I'm exploring the medium of podcasting at the moment.

Using software simulations, sales staff can be trained on the ways of filling up the forms in an efficient manner. The simulations can provide multiple opportunities to master the basics, like using capitals in certain fields, filling out required data like pincodes, and so on. Interactive mediums like audio and video can be utilized to deliver bite-sized learning that takes very little time and helps the learner to better apply the knowledge gathered, as and when needed.

Interactivities in Level 2 and Level 3:Limited and Moderate Interactions

At this level, the course involves some audio with narration and videos along with some animations and transitions. For example, medical training such as surgeries and flight simulations can be taught through this level of interaction. It includes software simulations and multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, and other kinds of activities. This level also involves animated videos and customized audio.

HTML5 only issue: Playhead won’t move beyond Click Box Pause Point if Final Attempt reached prior to Pause Point

We are using CP9, updated to most recent version, trying to publish software simulations in HTML5 output only. These are simulations for clients to complete on desktop devices, not mobile. I should note our standard process is to provide text-to-speech at the slide audio level, which is why we extend the click box out so far. One workaround I’ve found is, we can add the audio directly to the click box. Editing the audio then also becomes an issue.
