Content Development Enterprise Learning LMS, LCMS centra SabaIn the last 12 months we have seen many mergers in the learning market take place: Oracle’s acquisition of Peoplesoft, SumTotal’s acquisition of Pathlore, Saba’s acquisition of Thinq, and KnowledgePlanet’s acquisition of KnowledgeImpact. Why these Mergers are Occurring.

GoTo Meeting, Centra, Wimba, and other Web Conferencing Solutions…Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Kapp Notes

PowerPoint is slowly starting to broaden its capabilities and will, I predict, soon infringe on some well known software applications in the field of e-learning such as…web conferencing tools (and others). This video is one of the first inroads PowerPoint is making into the Web Conferencing software and I don’t think they are going to stop here. Will it be PowerPoint 2014 with full capabilities and robust conferencing, when will they announce a more robust authoring capability?

Learning in 3D Summer 2009: Class Five

Kapp Notes

We started in Second Life and then we went to ProtoSphere and then to Centra and then back to Second Life. We visited the Genome project and the Particle Laboratory in Second Life, both great places and then we went into ProtoSphere to check it out and then we went to learn a little about scripting in Centra and then we went into Second Life to do some scripting. Scripting tips from Matt. This week's class was a whirl wind of different platforms.

How Long Does It Take to Develop One Hour of E-Learning-Updated for 2009

Kapp Notes

For example: in 2003, the low estimate for developing One Hour of Instructor-led, Web-based training delivery (using software such as Centra, Adobe Connect, or WebEx-two-way live audio with PowerPoint)was 30 hours and the high estimate was 80 hours. Ever wonder how long it takes to design and develop one hour of e-Learning? Lots of people have wondered and there are a few resources on the topic: Here is a good one by Bryan Chapman How long does it take to create learning?

Blogcast Bloomsburg University: Video in e-Learning

Kapp Notes

Captured content via Centra, sent playback to vendor to transcribe and converted it into a minute script in aCNN-type presentation for delivery via an iPod. Rachel Vazquez and Pete Mitchell (alum) presented on how they used video in e-learning and how they had to convert video to an e-learning format. They also discussed how they are delivering training via video iPods.

We have 2D Virtual Classrooms, Why 3D?

Kapp Notes

In a 3D world, the interaction with the students feels more intimate than with a 2-D distance learning application such as Centra, Horizon Wimba or Adobe Connect. Sitting around a conference table for class. Another question and this one is simple.why 3D? We've got plenty of great 2D platforms for communication, what does 3D add? Here is a short answer.

Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: Attending an ISTE Meeting in SL

Kapp Notes

It really reminded me of when virtual classrooms like Centra started to appear, eventually the software grew into its use by the pioneers. __ Recommended Games and Gadgets Recommended Books Content GuideLast night I attended my first meeting in Second Life. It was sponsored by the International Society for Technology in Education better known as ISTE. that's me in the hat with the blue and black striped shirt.) It was facilitated by Kittygloom Cassady.

Elements of a Virtual World/Metaverse

Kapp Notes

The first software element that makes up a virtual world is a synchronous learning tool similar to WebEx or Adobe Connect or Saba’s Centra. Using a virtual world or metaverse for training is not as science-fiction as it sounds. A metaverse or virtual world is simply the natural extension and convergence of several technologies currently used for online learning.

Living off the Land: Capturing The Voice of Experts

The Learning Circuits

My first thought was using Centra, but the client always uses the telephone for voice, and I am not sure if they have save capability. In one project on which I am working, I have been asked for a strategy to quickly capture a lot of presentations from a lot of people to share with others. A second option is to use the record voice option in PowerPoint. A third is to use a tool like Audacity to record an MP3, and then have some one else align that with slides.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

In addition to the four they list, I've personally had experience with GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar, Elluminate, Centra and Interwise. Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome."

Discussion with Lucid Meetings

Kapp Notes

3) How is Lucid Meetings different from other meeting software such as GoTo Meetings, Saba’s Centra or Adobe Connect? The other day I had a chance to learn about Lucid Meetings and to hear what they are doing in terms of creating interesting meeting spaces. Plus there is a nice surprise for anyone who reads to the end of the article:). 1) So tell me about Lucid Meetings, what does it do?

8 Scary and Uncomfortable Reasons for the Growth of Virtual Worlds

Kapp Notes

Virtual Classrooms are Really Boring We've all multi-tasked while attending a WebEx, Centra Session or an Adobe Connect presentation. S top, proceed with caution. While I think there are many legitimate reasons why an organization should partake in virtual immersive environments (VIEs) for learning and collaboration, there are also some "less-than-comfortable" reasons organizations are leaning in this direction.

consolidation continues - BlackBoard + WebCT & more.

The Learning Circuits

This announcement comes on the heels of Saba acquiring Centra. Plus Saba + Centra creates a US$100M revenue company which is not too shabby! Wow, consolidation is running rampart in the eLearning space as everyone continues to merge or acquire. Look to your left and look to your right; easily one of those will not be around in six months.

Help, I have an Instructional Design Master's Degree and I Can't Create E-Learning

Kapp Notes

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Can the ‘big LMS’ break clear of formal training?

Dispelling the LMS Myth

eLearning 24-7

Web conferencing or chat rooms – I know it might come as a shock but WebEx was alive and in full mode in 2000 and so was Centra – remember them? Last week I came across an interesting obit: A Mr. L.M. System had passed away. He was recognized throughout the e-learning and learning communities. Apparently he was loved by millions and hated by thousands. He tended to wear different colors and apparently wore logos – I surmise they were on t-shirts.

One-way conferencing in a two-way world

Jay Cross

It wouldn’t be hard for WebEx, Adobe, Centra, Elluminate Blackboard, or their peers to provide a default conferencing environment that mirrors best practices for interactive meetings instead of mimicking what went on in yesteryear’s boring one-way workshops and classrooms. Yesterday I gave a presentation to a couple of dozen people using Adobe Connect Pro. I couldn’t see them. I might as well have been blindfolded.

M-Learning: Where’s the app for that?

eLearning 24-7

Saba Centra. As I write on my iPad, thoughts swirl abound. With all these vendors talking about their solution and its capabilities on mobile devices, it should be easy to find an app for that. Regardless if the vendor is m-learning specific, content authoring tool, LMS, web conferencing or a hybrid. It shouldn’t matter. If your telling me your solution is mobile ready, then all I should need to do is go iTunes or Android and find your app. Simple, right? Ahh, here’s the rub.

O Collaboration - Where Art Thou?

The Learning Circuits

To me Real Time Collaboration (RTC) solutions like Macromedia Breeze , Centra , WebEx , Elluminate etc replicate oh so many of the problems we face in the traditional face-to-face model. For those that know me (all three of them) know that I am pretty passionate about the power of the Internet being its ability to connect people to people, not people to content. I was reading an entry called Learning Conversation from Jay Cross' blog and was provoked enough to start writing a comment.
