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?

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. However, from that video you can also go back and insert a step-by-step show-me version, as well as a try-it and test-me versions, all without the same project and all from a single screen recording session.

Using Silverlight/Expression Blend for eLearning Development

Upside Learning

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.

Summer Course Authoring Tool Rankings – Top Ten

Design effects. Because it is Adobe – the same folks who came up with Photoshop a long time ago, who brought us Premiere – a long time ago and who bought Macromedia – again, a long time ago. They offer two versions, but this is in reference to the paid version.

Got SCORM?

ICS Learning

SCOs are web-based and script-enabled – consisting of HTML, Javascript and any other client-side technology (images, Macromedia Flash, etc). The required elements of this node that we have included specify the schema and schema version. or “API” depending on the SCORM version you are following. 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?

Storyline and ZebraZapps: seriously powerful, seriously simple

Clive on Learning

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. I've no idea what the professional and enterprise versions will cost. 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.

The Building Blocks of a Successful e-Training Program

ICS Learning

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?

The Learning Circuits

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.
