Michael Allen – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Learnnovators

Authorware merged with MacroMind/Paracomp to become Macromedia, which was later acquired by Adobe. Boring instruction ranges in effectiveness, but resides in the area of a total waste of time to an unfortunate loss of opportunity. Learnnovators: You were part of many studies conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of e-learning to change behavior. What would be your advice for them to upskill themselves for designing effective learning solutions for today’s situations?

Development Tools - Should I Cut Out the Middle Guy?

eLearning Cyclops

Back when I first started developing e-learning courses, I used Macromedia's Authorware. I will note that I will keep Captivate in my toolbox , as it is more effective for developing software/application simulations than building them from scratch in Flash. For more interactive elements, I used Flash and imported the SWFs into Authorware. Over the years, I have used ToolBook, Trainersoft, and even Dreamweaver with Coursebuilder.

My Top 10 e-Learning Tools

They are not stand alone e-learning tools, but together allow me the ability to create effective e-learning courses. And it worked very well with my Macromedia Flash when I was getting started in e-learning. 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."

7 reasons why the new Articulate Storyline is a Game-Changer for eLearning

mLearning Revolution

One of the secrets to making eLearning effective is to include just the right amount of interactions in order to keep the learner engaged, and Storyline makes build interactions, even complex ones a breeze. First, let me start by congratulating everyone who works for Articulate for the launch of Storyline. Undertaking a monumental job such as writing an application like Storyline from the ground up is no easy feat. However if there’s a company that can do it, that is certainly Articulate.

Using Silverlight/Expression Blend for eLearning Development

Over the last ten years or so, major elearning developers have preferred to use tools like Flash, Authorware and Director from Adobe (earlier Macromedia). Creating animation is also quite complicated as one has to code time slots and animation effects parameters manually into the XAML file.

SCOs are web-based and script-enabled – consisting of HTML, Javascript and any other client-side technology (images, Macromedia Flash, etc). Using the GetValue and SetValue methods, the SCO is able to send and retrieve all the necessary data for effective tracking to and from the LMS. Got SCORM?

Michael was, of course, the creator of Authorware, a highly powerful tool from the CD-ROM era, which Adobe eventually gave up on after they inherited it from Macromedia. In effect, to give us back what we had with tools in the 1980s and 90s. Here at DevLearn 2011 in Las Vegas I've got authoring tools on my mind. Because I have been able to take a look at two new tools today, which I'm sure are going to have a major impact. The have one thing in common and lots of differences.

I love the stream of consciousness effect imparted by linking from one blog to another. I've never been tempted to paint say a Macromedia logo on my niece's face, but maybe that's just me. It reminds me of the best part of the best classroom discussions; making new connections. Let me try to recreate a recent experience in a way that you can share.

Skillfully blending these elements together will ultimately give you the most effective training and the best results for your company. The use of interactive multimedia, if well done, can make the instruction much more interesting and effective. Also, remember that training, regardless of how well it is designed, is not effective unless the employees are properly motivated to take it. This solution could result in more effective training at less expense.

O Collaboration - Where Art Thou?

I believe that for any effective learning event (events come together to form a continuous learning experience) a structure of before/during/after applies. For example during university my most effective classes were the ones that we prepared for ahead of time by reading the materials and then came to class ready to discuss. The same principles still apply online because they apply to effective learning , regardless of the delivery medium.
