CBT utilitsing CD roms


Some of the training I have been tasked to provide is on an (relatively simple) in house windows software program. We are a relatively small company but have clients throughout the world. I am therefore thinking of trying to put together a CD based training course, instead of having to personally run each course which will take up a lot of my time. However I have no idea how to start putting my course onto a CD and I was wondering if anyone can recommend any software packages/companies which could help me.

  2. various ways to achieve this
    There area various ways to achieve this and easy to use software is now quite widely available -Coursebuilder in Dreamweaver, Tutor Pro etc.

    Once written it is easy to burn on to a CD.

    A lot of your choice will depend on the functionality/interactivity you wish to build in to the course. How flat do you want it to be?

    If you have a spare 10 minutes call me if you wish on 0161 875 0100.


  3. Training onto CD
    Hi Nic,

    I am not sure what the memory size is that you are looking at. The large 650 or 800 MB CD’s are relatively easy to copy on to.

    If you need considerably less, I can certainly recommend a company called EC-1 ( Speak to a lady called Anne-Marie Jonsbak (07957 603201)- They do the small digital business card-type CD in a 33MB and 100MB format. The prices include actual professional printing on the face of the CD. These are quite unique and may be quite cheap as you are doing the content work yourself.

    If you are familiar with this type at all, let me add that the actual CD that ec-1 uses is actually cut to size and fits properly into the CD tray as opposed to those using nodes or those cut from larger CDs.

    Hope this helps
    Best Regards

  4. CBT on CD-R
    There are several ways of doing it.
    Highest cost and/or effort would be to get a company (like ours!) to take your courseware and create an interactive CBT module out of it.

    Alternatively, I have seen some quite well worked Powerpoint Presentations using hotspots and hyperlinks to get the message across.
