The Apple Effect on E-Learning

1359351_76562943.jpgI remember my first Apple.  Well…it wasn’t mine per say, but it did grace the dusty back table of my fourth grade classroom and I lived for those scant 15 minutes a day spent creeping my way down the Oregon Trail.   I ruled that trail!

But that was it.  That is the single Apple related memory of my childhood.  And even beyond.  If we are being completely honest the idea of Apple as a brand didn’t even cross my mind again until the first iPod ads started working their way in front of my eyes.

Can I admit that they worked? 

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of those shiny white boxes of goodness! (more…)

SlidePoint App for Weblearning is Like PowerPoint Online

Our most ambitious Weblearning LMS plugin, over 2 years in development, the SlidePoint Online Presentation software for Weblearning is finally available.

Currently, it is available solely as a plug-in for our Weblearning LMS/E-Learning System, but work is already underway for a stand-alone cloud-based version (will be hosted on www.slidepoint.net).

So What is SlidePoint?

In short, SlidePoint enables you to visually create and assemble visually stunning, flash-like e-learning presentations, complete with images, text, video, narrations, and even animation effects – all online, and the end result does not require flash (in other words, works on mobile phones and tablets, including iPad)! You can, of course, integrate flash videos if you wish (as well as YouTube videos).

Creating interactive e-learning presentations, slideshows, training tutorials, and marketing slideshows is easy with SlidePoint.

Will have some more examples soon, but for now, here are a few SlidePoints: Sample1, Sample2

Study Mode Quizzes Now Available in Weblearning LMS

Here is a short video that shows a preview of our new Study Mode Quiz plug-in for Weblearning LMS – just released as I write this. As always, our LMS learning modules are designed to work on mobile devices (meaning, they do not use Flash).

In this case, if you are one of our Test Pro Developer customers, the study mode quiz should seem familiar – since Test Pro Developer has had the ‘Practice Mode’ tests for quite some time – and we have used those as our model for this plugin. So, if you are looking to move your users from Windows Desktop Software learning to Online Learning, and want to give them a similar experience, you can now leverage Weblearning, with this Study Mode Quiz plugin (as well as the recently released Flash Card Plugin which mimics Test Pro Developer’s Flashcard mode).

Weblearning LMS Hosted Plans with SCORM Now Available

scorm1.gifA few weeks ago, we released the Weblearning Enterprise Gold Edition, our first LMS offering that includes the ability to use SCORM content. The Weblearning Enterprise Gold Edition is essentially a Weblearning LMS license for your own server.

This week, we have released two new Weblearning Annual Hosted plans that include SCORM – the Weblearning Ultimate Plan, and Weblearning Server Plan (the Server plan includes a dedicated managed server for high volume e-learning delivery).

You can check out the plans (along with our new plans that don’t include SCORM) on our Weblearning Packages page.

For those of you that don’t know what SCORM is, I will write up a few articles in the near future explaining how it can benefit you and your Weblearning system, but for now, you can read about SCORM here.

Weblearning LMS version 9.62 New Features

whats_new.gifEach time we release an update to Weblearning, we usually include a handful of new features. A typical update will include a dozen or less items.

In this case, there are actually almost 50 Additions, Changes and Bug Fixes in Weblearning version 9.62, which makes it a very large update.

For this article, I had to choose a few of the new features that are likely to be ones that most of you would want to be aware of and/or you are likely to use. All of these are actual feature requests we have received, so I know some of you will be excited to hear about them.

If you are interested in learning about the SCORM compatibility, you can read about that here.

SCORM Now Available in Weblearning Enterprise Gold Edition

scorm1.gifWe have been working very hard this year to bring you SCORM support in our Weblearning LMS.

Finally, I am happy to report that it is ready, and is now available in our newest edition of Weblearning Enterprise – the Weblearning Enterprise Gold Edition.

Although the new Weblearning Enterprise Gold Edition LMS is slightly more expensive than our standard Weblearning Enterprise Edition LMS, it is still thousands (actually tens of thousands) less than other LMS options on the market.

We are also working hard to bring you a hosted monthly and hosted annual options that offer SCORM capabilities as well. Our goal is to offer you the best value for a hosted SCORM solution. We have yet to work out the pricing and implementation details on the hosted plans though (more to come on this in the weeks ahead).

Below, I have posted some screen shots and comments here to give you a sneak peek at what it looks like and what it can do.

Flashcards Plugin for Weblearning LMS – Preview

Here is a short video that shows a preview of our new Flashcards plug-in for Weblearning LMS – which should be available very soon (a few weeks). Despite all the fancy animations going on, the Flashcards plug-in is pure HTML, so it is mobile-learning compatible (phones, tablets).

LMS Plug-in Development Inside Look

boring_presentation.jpgThings are extremely busy here at Atrixware E-Learning Solutions these days – across all departments. I thought I’d provide you with a sneak peek into the product development happenings (at the risk of being boring for some), and give you some information on some cool Weblearning LMS plug-ins (currently available plug-ins are here) we are readying for 2011 release.

Flash Cards
This is a new module type that can co-exist with the learning presentations, practice quizzes, and graded quizzes you can already create inside of your Weblearning LMS account. This plug-in will enable you to create online flashcard style learning modules, where users can view questions on the front of a card, and then flip the card to view the answer.

PowerPoint to Weblearning Converter Plugin Now Available

Those of you who have Weblearning Pro or Enterprise systems, and have used the previous PowerPoint Converter tool, you may be interested to know about the new PowerPoint Converter Plug-in.

Complete information on the PowerPoint Converter Plugin (and all Weblearning plug-ins for that matter) is available here.

This plug-in is used to convert PowerPoint Presentation Slides into native Weblearning Slides. Minimally, this lets you get your PowerPoint presentations online without requiring your users to use the PowerPoint viewer application, and in this case, they don’t even need flash (as many PowerPoint converters turn the presentation into a flash video).

i3.png

This means that devices that do not support Flash (like iPhone, iPod, iPad, and many other mobile devices) will be able to view your presentations!

 iphone.pngipad.png

This new version of the PowerPoint Converter has many improvements over the old one.

For starters, it is now a plug-in to your Weblearning system (although it still does have a desktop component to it).

It now also converts some basic PowerPoint Animation Effects (fly-in from top, bottom, left, and right, fade-in). In addition, you can also override effects (and add some of your own) during the conversion (changing effect type and speed, and configuring items to fade out or roll-up after the core effect has completed). There is a local preview of your converted slides (along with all animations) as well.

The conversion accuracy is also vastly improved, so things like stylized and non-standard-font text, multiple text colors, bullet items, and more are nearly a 100% conversion.

If you would like to see it in action, you can sign up for a demo Weblearning account – then you will find the plug-in under the slides -> plugins tab.
