Tips for Adding the Right Images to Your E-Learning Content

1083507_59176087.jpgWho doesn’t like pictures?  I like pictures.  Pictures are fun.  They add interest, they add depth and they are able to say a whole heck of a lot more than I am at a fraction of the word count.

Sounds like a win/win situation, right?  Well, it is .. but only if we are talking about the right pictures!

After all, this is not a one kind fits all kind of thing.  Not in the least.  I mean,  if a picture is going to shout out a 1000 words then you want to make extra sure that you know exactly what those words are going to be!

In short, you want this images you choose to enhance the quality of your E-Learning environment rather than (more…)

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!

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

To Do or Not To Do … Should an Educator Blog?

960692_93021290.jpgTo blog…or not to blog?  As the title suggests it poses quite the perplexing question.  After all, as educators our blogs have the potential to both affect our students as well as offer them a type of behind the scenes glimpse into our minds.

But is that a good thing?

Do we really want to open ourselves up to that type of scrutiny and, in doing so, invite the dialogue that comes hand-in-hand with any type of public forum?

I think so.

In fact, I think that being an educator makes the reasons to blog more important, more interesting and even more compelling.  It allows us to express ideas and open conversations that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.  It allows us to share our voice.  Now, let’s talk about why we should…..

SlidePoint for Weblearning LMS To Be Released

We are just about ready to release our newest plug-in for the Weblearning LMS – called SlidePoint.

The best way to describe it is this – it’s like an online version of PowerPoint geared specifically towards e-learning.

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! You can, of course, integrate flash videos if you wish (as well as YouTube videos).

Another cool benefit is – your presentations will also run on mobile devices.

Here is a screen shot of the SlidePoint Editor:

We expect SlidePoint to be available in the next several weeks. In the meantime, here is a sample presentation I created with the (internal) beta version of SlidePoint – not the greatest presentation ever created, but a light sampling of some stuff you can do (and as it’s being delivered outside of a course, the save/exit button doesn’t function):



Here is another sample presentation
..that demonstrates a custom button bar, as well as the ability to resize and scale the presentation like you can with videos (even though it is not a video): http://bit.ly/rrCVXq



..and this sample presentation talks about some advanced animations like rotate, skew and scale – and does so while advancing automatically from slide to slide (like a video): http://bit.ly/nsocRu

3 Ways to Improve Student Interaction in E-Learning

860593_40313047.jpgIf there is one so called downside to E-Learning, or even to distance learning as a whole, it is the lack of peer-to-peer interactions among participants.  And, while some instructors may not miss this facet of a traditional classroom, I often find myself longing for that one small piece of the “good ol’ days!”

Why?  Because it worked!

There is just something about sitting down with your peers as you all work your way towards a common goal.  Something that helps to drive the information home while increasing retention rates and improving the overall student experience.  It is a tried and true method of teaching and it is one that I try to replicate as closely as possible in my own E-Learning classroom.

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.

Great Ways to Prevent Cheating on Online Quizzes

imgres.jpgDelivering Online Quizzes is becoming more and more common, so here are 5 great ways to help prevent cheating and ensure the user answers are their own.

Shuffle the Question Order

This is a no-brain-er. By doing this, you make sure that passing the quiz is not a simple list of letters (like 1-a, 2-c, 3-b, 4-b, etc). Most quiz authoring software (including our Weblearning E-Learning System as well as our Online Quiz Maker System) enable you to do this.

Introducing SCORM Quiz Maker

SCORM Quiz Maker is an application that lets you easily create quizzes that can be uploaded into your SCORM compatible LMS.  It also allows you to make Microsoft Word compatible printed quizzes and answer keys as well.

11-12-2009-12-13-03-pm.jpg

It shares the same authoring interface as our other quiz maker products (like Easy Quiz Maker and PowerPoint Quiz Maker) and shares a common import/export format for multiple-choice questions (so you can, for example, use your questions across all products).

As a preview of what can be published using SCORM Quiz Maker, I’ve published an example SCORM compatible quiz and a sample printed quiz.

Example 1:

To preview this SCORM compatible quiz example, click here.

Note that not all features will be available when you run the quiz locally as opposed to on your LMS. If you are using Internet Explorer, you may need to click the top bar on the browser, and then choose ‘allow blocked content’ — note that this will not appear when the quiz is delivered from your LMS.

Example 2:

This is an example of a printed quiz created with SCORM Quiz Maker. I’ve printed the quiz to a PDF document so that you can download and open the example locally and see how SCORM Quiz Maker can also be used to deliver your questions in a classroom setting. To view the printed example click here.

For more information on SCORM Quiz Maker and it’s features, please visit the SCORM Quiz Maker page located under the Products section of this website.
