A Brief Historical Look at Corporate Training


As I get older, new professionals fresh out of Ed Tech programs look younger and younger. Users wanted to create their own programs without needing to know programming and thus, the authoring tool was born. Hypercard and Authorware both launched in 1987, making it easy to create multi-media programs. What you could produce was crude by today’s standards, but it gave anyone the ability to create educational programs.

eLearning Defined

Tony Karrer

eLearning / E-Learning - Broad definition of the field of using technology to deliver learning and training programs. Typically used to describe media such as CD-ROM, Internet, Intranet, wireless and mobile learning. It includes the delivery of content via Internet, intranet/extranet (LAN/WAN), audio- and videotape, satellite broadcast, interactive TV, CD-ROM, and more.

What's Better: eLearning or Classroom?

Also, using elearning programs makes managers feel like they are staying on the cutting edge of technology. Feeding this appetite for online programs is research that seems to support the notion that online is better than face-to-face, classroom instruction. Department of Education found a small advantage for online (blended) programs. Putting a course on the Web or on a CD-ROM does not ensure performance improvement.(

My life…in elearning

Learning Visions

15 years ago I got a job as an instructional designer/multimedia producer at a company that created training programs delivered on CD ROMS. We created custom elearning programs in Flash. We see the industry changing quickly as the marketplace matures and program requirements become more sophisticated. 20 years ago I was a struggling recent college graduate who had moved to Boston in the middle of a recession.

We need basic programming skills, to create them. Lectora can be used to publish to various formats such as HTML5, Executable File (exe), CD-ROM, Course Mill, AICC, SCORM, and xAPI. In my previous blog, we have seen how to convert your PowerPoint presentations into e-learning courses using Adobe Captivate. In this post, we will see how to convert PowerPoint presentations using another widely used rapid authoring tool – Lectora Inspire.

Use the data and metrics that gauge the effectiveness of the eLeanring program available through the LMS and surveys to determine ROI of the training.

The Evolution of the “Common eLearning Man”

eLearning Brothers

Some content was converted/repurposed from textbooks to PDFs or interactive CD-Roms. But the “common eLearning man” became aware of the complications around development and costs for building eLearning programs with the digital landscape still in early development. Isn’t it amazing to think how far eLearning has come since the early 1990′s? It is truly remarkable how things have evolved so rapidly.

SCORM vs AICC: how do they compare?


When these standards were originally set up in 1993, they only focused on CD-ROM based training. Many elearning authoring tools let you create a course with SCORM output without any programming knowledge. Making your elearning SCORM compliant means that it’s set up in a way that lets it work with any of the major LMSs. Another set of standards that has the same aim is AICC. SCORM is much more widely used today, but that doesn’t mean we can forget about AICC entirely.

The next year, the program went international, and Wiseman took her first flight to Europe. I remember spending hours at the bookstore learning how to create CD-ROMs; now most professional learning is done on the Internet.

However, the training video used in old studies was mainly either broadcasted via TV programs or saved in CD-ROMs. Learning facilitated by information technologies and problem solving skill enhanced by digital tools, is gaining momentum since last decade.

What are some of your success stories in implementing new technologies in your learning programs? By Dean Hawkinson. On a recent trip to Jekyll Island, Georgia, I had the opportunity to reflect a bit on how far we have come with technology. On Jekyll Island, there is a monument set up by the Telephone Pioneers of America in remembrance of the first transcontinental phone call made from right there on the island on January 29, 1915, by then AT&T president Theodore Vail.

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter


The aircraft industry has always had a high need for training and certification, and prior to 1988, this led to a variety of incompatible and closed system training programs that had unique hardware and software requirements. The specification was originally intended for CD-ROM or local file based content, and was updated in 1998 and 1999 to use a protocol known as HACP (HTTP-based AICC/CMI Protocol) to allow it to operate in a Web-based environment.

The Demise of E-learning (the brand)

Tom Spiglanin

Our first products, known simply as Computer Based Training, or CBT, had no inherent dissemination method, instead relying on distribution of diskettes or CD-ROMs. Then, when they do, they use every ploy imaginable to minimize their discomfort, which often includes performing a variety of other tasks at the same time, paying only minimal attention to the required program.

Doctors versus internet: who is better at diagnosing?

In this program laymen with a laptop have to diagnose in a competition against doctors without a laptop. Many participants in the MOOC remembered the CD-ROM with the Encarta encyclopedia, the documentation centres with microfiches, the subscription to a magazine, the Yellow Pages. Few education institutions have made crap detection central to the program. I have dreamed for a long time of organizing our own MOOC.

Lessons from the past

dVinci Interactive

Soon after, Apple Computer introduced the Macintosh with Hypercard which, according to Steve Jobs, was an object oriented “programming language for the rest of us.” Now instructional designers weren’t constrained by the limited functions in programs like IconAuthor. CD ROMs became easy to author, but they were soon supplanted by the ubiquity of the internet.

Launch your LMS using these critical tactics


One of the critical mistakes many organisations make when launching a new eLearning program is trying to appeal to all of their audience immediately. We have been subjected to this type of online learning for the past 10 years, and before that on CD-ROM. We are implementing an eLearning program into an organisation, so obviously, we are talking about education there. Implementing an online learning solution within an organisation can sometimes be a challenging project.

Mobile Learning Moves the Evolution of Authoring Tools

Association eLearning

In the early 1990s, the industry was largely dominated by PC-based applications that required programming to “author” computer-based training (CBT). While powerful for their time, these tools were not easy to use, requiring complex programming skills. Using Authorware , learning professionals could create learning programs with hyper-simplistic designs, primarily through dragging and dropping icons.
