eLearning Brothers

Another key to the continuous improvement of your eLearning experience is the integration of quality assessment standards into the instructional design process. These standards address key areas such as: Course overview and introduction.

Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. This particular one was special, as we were formally reviewing the Project Authorization Request (PAR) for the Experience API to become a formal standards project. As the leader of this standards effort, I want to hear what you have to say.

Blended Learning Becoming Standard

LearnDash

Blended learning is on the rise, at least that is what the reports tell us. The use of mobile technology in nearly every facet of life today makes blended learning a natural choice. In fact, ignoring the benefits of today’s tech tools appears to be plain irresponsible.

Are eLearning Standards Necessary?

Integrated Learnings

But I typically argue that eLearning standards are necessary. Even the most cutting edge eLearning out there follows a standard, even if it's a totally new one. By standard I mean a common template and/or a compliance specification such as SCORM or AICC. Standards provide a logical framework for the learner. I'd suggest that they define and follow eLearning standards for the following reasons: Trackability of course completion and scoring. By Jay Lambert.

User Assistance: Standard Gauge

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In 21st Century Australia, there isn't a standard national rail gauge. In some states, narrow gauge is used, in others broad gauge, and ironically in just one state, standard gauge. It started well, with a decision by the British Government's Secretary of State for the Colonies that all colonies should adopt standard gauge. Let's think standards, and how standard adoption by an industry can go horribly wrong with enormous, long-term financial consequences.

Instructor Led Training…Is It Still the Gold Standard?

Your Training Edge

In the training world, we often refer to instructor-led-training (ILT) as the gold standard. Is it time we had a new gold standard? ILT became the gold standard not because it’s perfect (we all know that isn’t true), but because it’s better than other traditional methods of training.

Course Standards: Where R We Heading?

eLearning 24-7

There has been a lot of information out there , okay, I’m kidding there hasn’t been much of anything when it comes to course standards. I’ll readily admit that regardless of the course standard you use, if you create click-click-click courses, than no course standard will make it engaging. Yet here we are wondering where the course standard industry is heading or at least presumed to be heading. “They are not Compliance Standards.”

Training Standards

He is definitely challenged and thinking a lot about training standards. Heck, if something doesn’t even have a standard for what to call itself, is it really ready for a rev. Instead, I'd like to focus on what Bill asks about the challenges around training standards and eLearning 2.0 : What is happening with the eLearning world is that we lack standardization.

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

Now for the next big thing…a standard for support true-streaming video via HTTP! There’s nothing standardized yet but ‘HTTP Live Streaming’ (“HLS”), developed by Apple, seems to have the lead…though there are several potential streaming protocol options integrated with a variety of media servers and end-clients. For now, barring any of those requirements for a given project, we’ll be settling on a general MP4/h.264 standard for our projects in most cases.

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

The post HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly) appeared first on ICS Learning Group. One of the most significant issues holding back wide deployment of HTML5-compatible video was the disparity of support between browsers. Back in 2011, we opined on the best approach to deliver video online which, at that time, was using Flash. Oh how things have changed. About a year later, we furthered our thoughts on web-delivered video noting how the HTML5 movement had made solid progress.

Apparently, Google has recently opined that the future of mobile is web standards. I’ve been reflecting on the benefits that standards have provided.
