eLearning Development: What’s new in Flash CS4?

Upside Learning

If you have been bugged by previous Flash versions not allowing you to publish for latest Flash Player there is some relief here. Flash CS4 allows us to finally publish SWF files for Flash Player 10 - the latest version of Flash Player.

The Open Screen Project – Will It Succeed?

Upside Learning

The Open Screen Project was started to help create a singular experience on multiple devices (using Flash) be it Computers, Mobiles, TV or Game consoles. 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. Obviously, using Flash platform tools offered by Adobe.

PowerPoint or Prezi: Which is Best for eLearning?

Association eLearning

Here are a few points to consider before making a choice for your association: “Is the eLearning well-designed?”. I’ve already written about how to create eLearning using PPT, so I won’t re-visit that here. As for Prezi, I personally do not recommend trying to use it on its own to create self-paced eLearning.

Flash: an End of an Era – What You Need To Know

Aptara

Flash: an End of an Era – What You Need To Know. In 1996 Macromedia first introduced the Flash Player, developed to play videos, animations, and audio and to support enhanced interactivity in web browsers. Over the years web browsers matured and so did Flash Player, which became the most widely used plug-in to play multimedia elements on a web page. Flash Player is not supported on mobile devices (iOS and Android). Adobe Ending Support for Flash Player by 2020.

Behind the Scenes of eLearning Troubleshooting

Association eLearning

eLearning is no exception. Seeing as eLearning is digital, it has the not-so-fun gray area of “it can work for some people and be broken for others at the same time.”. The short answer is that there are a lot of different pieces that need to work together for an eLearning course to run correctly. The device type also influences Flash vs HTML5. As a general rule, mobile devices run HTML5 instead of Flash. *

Is the iPad Driving eLearning Towards HTML5?

Upside Learning

The battle between web technologies (read ‘ Apple and Adobe ‘) started a couple of years back when Apple decided to not support Flash on its newly launched iPad terming it buggy. Apple backed HTML5 to be the next big thing and single handedly forced the developer community to take sides. The eLearning industry was not too happy about the iPad not featuring Flash as it meant reinventing the wheel for animation and interactivity in eLearning.

Using Silverlight/Expression Blend for eLearning Development

Upside Learning

Elearning development tools: only Adobe? Over the last ten years or so, major elearning developers have preferred to use tools like Flash, Authorware and Director from Adobe (earlier Macromedia).

eLearning Development Is An Iterative Process

Upside Learning

Earlier this month, Tom Kuhlmann talked about 10 things to do before your eLearning course goes live. So, before launching your elearning course, it’s a good idea to have others review it. A review by a separate review team/individuals is very important for any eLearning course. Michael Allen in his guide to eLearning talks about ‘successive approximation’. He further says ‘Iterations Make Geniuses’ as he leads to the Successive Approximation model of development.

Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

To focus more on rapidly authored eLearning content, I am excluding the screen recording tools which are mainly used for software simulation type of courses. As the behavior and layout is pre-programmed for each template, it doesn’t require programming or designing skills to develop the course content. But such tools may not be suited for all types of eLearning courses as the fixed behavior templates may pose constraints on the instructional design and creativity.

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. Here are some authoring tools that claim to let authors develop content targeted at mobile devices. I don’t consider these significant authoring tools for mLearning development yet.
