Flash Quiz Tools

Tony Karrer

Update June 2008 - added one free flash quiz tool based on a question I received. This tool is listed at the bottom. They didn't really need tracking of user responses, instead they wanted them to be fun. I suggested a couple of tools, but then wondered if I had given them the best list of tools. Here's guild member satisfaction ratings for tools in the test / quiz category. Note - the empty column now contains links to more information on the tools.

We may have all been drinking the same cool-aid, but at the IMS Global Learning Consortium Learning Impact Conference in Toronto, there was a meeting of the minds. The IMS is at the cutting edge of web 2.0 LTI (Learning Tool Interoperability) in particular has cracked the LMS open.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Free the Learners -- Free the LMS

Learning Visions

Monday, March 12, 2007 Free the Learners -- Free the LMS Jay Cross in Free the learners talks about his afternoon omelette and anarchy and then goes on: People ask how to track informal learning in their LMS; my response is don’t. Im wondering if people actually use all that data that does get tracked now for formal learning. Im mean -- do they really use all that data? What if we got really crazy and didnt track much of formal learning either?

Many instructional designers ( Christy Tucker , Wendy Wickham ) build their own courses using tools like Captivate. But, paradoxically, it is worth noting that as instructional designers become adept at using a specific tool, their value as designers will drop.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Consider the internet; developments on top of the TCP/IP protocol like SMTP and HTML allowed a variety of tools to work together to bring us email and the world wide web. Initially, when you developed eLearning, you were pretty much dependent on the tool you developed it in.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

Here's a recent one to get me started: Is it mandatory to use SCORM while developing an E-learning Software? You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS. If you won't ever need to run it under an LMS, then SCORM is overhead you don't need (see Tracking Without an LMS ).

Mobile to Me is not necessarily M-Learning to you (from the vendors’ perspective). Mobile is still on the rise, with more vendors (LMS, authoring tools, assessment, e-learning tools, etc.) If I wasn’t fully aware of the whole “mobile spin”, I’d naturally think that what is being said is that the vendor has some type of app (native/HTML5) which is available and when used it goes to their solution.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Off-the-Shelf Content: Help!

Learning Visions

Say, if youre purchasing a course library from SkillSoft or some other vendor: If a client has their own LMS, do they purchase the courses outright and host them on their own servers? If so, is the vendor able to track usage or do they just sell the content for a flat fee based on LMS seat size? Or do clients purchase courses that can be launched through their LMS, but that are hosted by the off-the-shelf vendor?

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: e-Learning Content & Version Control

Learning Visions

She raised the question about e-Learning content and how well companies keep track of content updates. Certainly with the rise of rapid e-Learning tools and the increase in SME-published content well start to see an increase in the frequency of updates to e-Learning material. As an e-Learning vendor, I think its our responsibility to make sure that our clients have thought this through. We need to find out what tools our clients use and what systems they have in place.
