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. However, it’s matter of debate that whether software simulations can be considered as part of EPSS.

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 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. Earlier we’ve mentioned some tools that can assist you in mLearning applications. Here are some authoring tools that claim to let authors develop content targeted at mobile devices.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE: Make Your Software Simulations Scorable

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

The Assessment recording mode in Adobe Captivate creates a step-by-step software simulation that is intended to function as a test. It is part of the three-part formal software lesson: Demo, then Training (practice), then Assessment (test).   The reason you get 100% every time is that by default, each click box in the Assessment simulation is set to Infinite Attempts. Repeat for each click box in the Assessment simulation. by Jennie Ruby, CTT, COTP.

Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

While working on rapid authored courses (courses authored using rapid authoring tools), I often encounter the decision point of whether to use freeform rapid authoring tools or the traditional template-based tools. Last year, we mentioned that there is a time and place for rapid authoring while opting for it. Here, let me just put some characteristics of the two types of rapid authoring methodologies.

Authoring tools refer to web-based e-learning and are designed for particular styles of learning, file formats, delivery platforms, production workflows and eLearning standards. One of the important factors while choosing the best authoring tool is durability.

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.

What You Need to Know About Software Training

Association eLearning

It’s no surprise that software training is often delivered as eLearning. But software training and its associated screen caps also present some unique challenges and considerations, as well as opportunities. Inadequate or poorly designed software training can be very frustrating for learners. If someone knows what to do but can’t figure out how to do it with the new software that’s going to cause them a lot of headaches and may lead to self-doubt.

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. Additionally, I outline EI Design’s capability in pushing the envelope further on creating responsive eLearning courses through customisation on the tool. Traditionally, the previous releases of Adobe Captivate were deemed suitable primarily for designing courses on Application Simulation. Rapid development of completely responsive eLearning courses.

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.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE & GOANIMATE: Sharing Voices Is Quick and Easy

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. So does the Export tool in the Library.). At the end of the Captivate software simulation, you see the animated character again, still talking in that same voice.

Articulate, Captivate, Both, or.?

eLearning Blender

I've been using Adobe Captivate for a while now and I am very happy with it for technical training projects but I can't help but wonder if other tools like Articulate may be a great addition to my toolbox. Since I already have Captivate, I need to determine whether it would be worth the investment to purchase new software when I may be able to get along just as well with what I already have. Hoping a different tool might be able to handle this better.

Adobe Announces Captivate 8: The Most Significant Release Yet

  And so we create interactive eLearning.   In computer training—training that teaches people how to use software, websites, apps, or online forms—we have known since the 1980s that hands-on training is essential. The experiment was run: merely demonstrate how the software works? Here are some methods to try:   Have the students work along with you as you complete a software activity—they are applying hands-on effort. by Jennie Ruby, COTP.

ADOBE CAPTIVATE: Why Are Smart Shapes So Smart? Let Me Count The (6) Ways

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

And even when a Smart Shape is not being used as button, you can create states for it and then program in events in your eLearning that cause the shape to change states. When setting up to record a software simulation, you can ask Captivate to generate Smart Shape captions instead of Text Captions—automatically. You know, SFH Captions—Success, Failure, and Hint captions that appear automatically when your viewers try to click through your eLearning lesson correctly.

The Next Generation of E-Learning

Rapid eLearning

Rapid elearning played a role in the evolution of elearning mostly because it took course creation out of the hands of a few programmers and placed it into the hands of anyone who wanted to create a course. I see this as the democratization of elearning. And it runs parallel to how digital media’s empowered people all over the world to create and deliver content using a host of online tools and social media applications. First, you record your software demo.

The net result is that you cannot record the screen, either in software simulation or in video demo recording mode. Even after all that, many developers report that while recording works, the Captivate software itself becomes so teeny-tiny that it's impossible to use.
