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. She tries to find answers to three simple questions regarding each tools mentioned in the mind map –. For many tools, the answers are as expected. Again, the fact surfaces that not all tools are perfect but each tends to be targeted for specific use cases. Localization processes using the tool should be easy and fast.

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: What’s new in Flash CS4?

Upside Learning

Flash CS4 allows us to finally publish SWF files for Flash Player 10 - the latest version of Flash Player. Deco and Spray Tools - The Deco tool could be used to quickly create kaleidoscope-like effects and to apply fills. The Spray Brush tool can be used to spray symbols across any user-defined areas. 3D Transformation - With the new 3D translation and rotation tools, 2D objects can be animated through 3D space, allowing animation along the x, y, and z axes.

eLearning Development: 4 Tech Considerations When Using Videos

Upside Learning

With increasing bandwidths and better compression techniques available, use of videos in Flash platform based eLearning courses is on the rise. To encode videos into FLV or MP4, the encoder software uses following codecs - H.264, On2 VP6 , and Sorenson Spark. To encode videos, one can use several encoding software available in market. The embedded videos are played back from within SWF, so you can create your own components to control the video playback.
