I've just noticed that OpenOffice Impress , the counterpart to the well used 'authoring tool' PowerPoint, has the option to output to Flash directly. The open source movement supports pretty much all we have to offer. It is entirely possible to create blogs, wikis, elearning courseware and even LMSs for free.

A Brilliant PowerPoint Tip for Enhanced Custom Graphics

eLearning Brothers

What would Dr. Seuss say about online communities.

L@Fw2008 Dawn Foster View more OpenOffice presentations from ISITEDesign. An excellent presentation that drives home the point using "nonsense rhymes." The appeal of nonsense rhymes dates back to our childhood, and this creates an instant feeling of identificaiton, thus keeping us hooked to the slides. This also increases the recall factor manifold.

Quick and Dirty Comment Analysis

Experiencing eLearning

I actually manually typed the numbers into OpenOffice Calc (after scanning the list of posts in my WordPress dashboard for posts with a decent amount of comments). Michele Martin asked how I did the comment analysis to see which posts have generated the most conversation. This is task 18 in the comment challenge. However, there is a faster way to get a “quick and dirty&# analysis of your comments and conversations.

eFront

You can export your data into a CSV file from many programs (including eFrontPro), and the format is also natively supported by Excel (and also by the OpenOffice spreadsheet application, in case you’re into Open Source software).

Open source in corporate learning – The need to take it seriously.

Learning Cafe

There is a whole range of open source applications that you can use including browsers e.g. Firefox (link) and alternates to Microsoft Office such as OpenOffice. The world of learning has been buffeted by the GFC and its after effects. Almost all forms of learning have been impacted. In Australia, as in other parts of the world, corporate training budgets have been cut and any training considered “discretionary” (read non – compliance) is being questioned.

Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Bill has quite a few questions in his post: eLearning is suffering from the Beta/VHS or Blu-ray/HD-DVD challenge. In fact, it is probably even more systemic. For example, it is elearning?
