Things to Consider Before Investing in eLearning Development Tools

Hurix Digital

However, these savings come at an initial cost – the cost of investing in an eLearning development tool , which is used to develop and implement these online courses; and train staff in course creation and administration. These eLearning development tools make course creation and implementation efficient and user-friendly. Accordingly, you can make an informed choice while selecting an appropriate eLearning development tool for your online courses.

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. The embedded videos are played back from within SWF, so you can create your own components to control the video playback.

For example, a feature that lets users “import” existing PowerPoint presentations into the authoring tool is different from authoring and publishing eLearning content from within PowerPoint (using a plug-in toolbar). Here are some features that eLearning professionals generally expect from authoring tools –.

The Open Screen Project – Will It Succeed?

Upside Learning

Adobe wants to latch onto the developer group that’s comfortable with Flash, yet wants their services and content to run across platforms – this by making its runtime consistent across all devices and encourage developers to design accordingly.

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. I’d like to leave the discussion around EPSS and software simulations to the experts in the eLearning industry.
