Development Tools - Should I Cut Out the Middle Guy?

eLearning Cyclops

It has gotten to a point where some of my courses are all developed in Flash and the e-learning authoring tools (DHTML) have been used more as a "shell" that decompiles it as a SCORM package. I really prefer the robust ability of creating courses in Flash and only use the DHTML e-learning authoring tools for their ability to make the course SCORM or AICC compliant. Back when I first started developing e-learning courses, I used Macromedia's Authorware.

My Top 10 e-Learning Tools

eLearning Cyclops

DHTML authoring tool - My preference is OutStart Trainer (TrainerSoft). Notepad - Editing XML, which is extremely useful in working with DHTML courses and sometimes Flash courses. Jane Hart is gathering top ten lists for e-learning tools. Thus far, 203 people in the e-learning field have submitted their list. I have posted my e-learning toolkit in the past, but not what I necessarily consider my "top e-learning tools." So, here are my top 10 e-learning tools.

My e-Learning Toolbox

eLearning Cyclops

ToolBook authoring tool - this is the DHTML authoring tool used at my company, but prior to this I used TrainerSoft (now Outstart Trainer), which is my preference. Every so often I see my fellow bloggers posting lists of what they have in their e-learning toolbox. These posts are always interesting and helpful. It is a glimpse not just into their development tool preferences, but it also provides some reflection into the approaches they take in creating courses.

OutStart Trainer - I am currently using another DHTML editor in which I am not enthralled at all. My kids are making their wish list for Hanukkah, which inspired me to make my own. I do not necessarily expect to receive any of these things, but if Hanukkah Harry reads this blog, which he may, their is a chance he will grant at least a few. Adobe CS4 eLearning Suite - I am still working with CS3.

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

" But in books like DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web, Excel Data Analysis, Illustrator, and even The Rough Guide to MySpace & Online Communities , humor and joking did not find a place. by Jennie Ruby What role, if any, should humor play in technical and training materials?

Development Tools I Would Learn If I Were You - June's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

Keep in mind some may be DHTML output, others create Flash SWFs. HTML/HTML5 : Learning HTML will come in very handy, especially if your WBT tool creates DHTML files, which you may need to edit at times.

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.

LMS Customization

Unless your administrator or perhaps yourself has programming skills such as CSS, DHTML, PHP, HTML, MYSQL, etc. Let’s pose a hypothetical: You are close to deciding on your LMS/LCMS, however you notice there are items or components or reports you want to include or have, but they are not available on your solution. So, what do you do? Nothing and just move forward figuring that it really doesn’t matter. Ask and see what can be done by the vendor – Customize it!
