Open Source Web Conferencing Solutions – FREE

eLearning 24-7

I have a real issue with vendors who charge extra – via a license with their “partner&# or otherwise for a web conferencing – and thus ability to offer webinars, in their solution. Hence: Below are products that are either open source free or free or free with limited functionality. Open Meetings - based on Google code. Bosco’s Screen Share - just a screen share program, open source.

Evolving the E-Learning Experience for the 21st Century

eLearning 24-7

What always stuns me are vendors who state they know what their learners want, but in reality have no clue, because they themselves do not see the technology and its usage among the masses. A greater number of people, worldwide are using SaaS then ever before, mobile products, tablets – especially the iPad – is growing at a feverish pace, people are using online storage, beyond just placing photos and media, and open source is continuing expansion.

May Edition: E-Learning News and Notes

eLearning 24-7

In the past it was build it yourself (pricey) or find open source and customize it (could be pricey, but cheaper then complete build). The partner approach works this way: vendor A integrates Vendor B’s solution into their product. Some times, it is nothing more than a link – hidden from the end user – the screen shows a popup or goes to the “page” but in reality the end user is now in the other vendor’s solution.

The Latest: Rapid Content Authoring Tool Market

eLearning 24-7

I am still surprised on how vendors who are offering assessment only tools are staying in the game. This will become one of the biggest features in 2012 – especially with people wanting to create simulations without being an e-learning developer. Some vendors push heavily on PPT, implying that a great WBT is really a PPT converted to Flash. Over 98% of the LMS/LCMS/learning platform have at least one compliance standard, so why use a RCAT that doesn’t?

E-Learning Innovative Products – They are Out There

I especially love it when it happens in the e-learning industry. Innovators and Risk Takers – emerging technology integrated, new ideas, pushing the envelope in what is possible in e-learning/social learning/m-learning, coming up with something that has never been done before – risk takers. When they hit stride, other vendors take notice and soon, the lemming revolution begins. An e-learning marketplace. E-Learning 24/7.

Social Media Offerings which can b used in Social Learning

eLearning 24-7

With the exception of crowdsourcing, all other social media types can be used in social learning. Social E-Mail - Google Buzz. Photo/Image sharing – Flickr. Open Source/Mashups - APis, open source – while open source and APIs are not social media, they will enable multi-faceted social media features and capabilities. Social media types with examples.

Video and LMSs – Why changes will need to be made in 2014

eLearning 24-7

With 2014 already in play, it is time for many LMS vendors to awaken by the trumpets playing the background – you might think it is Muzak, but no it’s trumpets. In 2014, I believe it will be the year of video for consumers in e-learning, specifically with content and as a one off on that – in the LMS. Some vendors already have this in place, the vast majority do not. . One vendor right off the bat is Unicorn Training. E-Learning 24/7.
