     Hi,

    My favourite elearning suite is http://elearningzoom.com/pricing.php?affiliate_id=878 it’s great for uploading and disseminating elearning, has an LMS built in and also can be used to send emails and host webinars and learning events in real time.

    Hope this helps.

  2. eLearning Authoring tool

    Hi David

    Choosing the right elearning authoring tool is a tricky one. Before making any decisions I would suggest you consider 1) what are you looking for from your elearning content 2) who is going to be using the tool and 3) how do you intend to use this tool – i.e. rapid elearning vs. investment intensive elearning.

    If you want a tool for rapid elearning then using Powerpoint with a PPT to flash converter will do quite a lot of what you want without any serious investment or training required.

    One step beyond this Articulate is a tool which combines Powerpoint with additional predefined content and interactions to create some very impressive results, again with small investment and minimal learning curve.

    Adobe Captivate is another great tool for rapid elearning – particularly for developing software application training.

    If you are looking at creating more complicated or imaginative modules then you are looking at using Adobe Flash which will require significant training to get your developers to a level where they can produce good content in a reasonable timeframe.

    In short there are many options – take your time, download trials and find the tool that best suits your needs.

    Hope this helps.

  3. e-Learning – a free tool

    Hi David,

     

    I use free software eXe, it is a slow program with some issues, but it does produce an interactive product with a bit of polish. It can be obtained by following this link: exelearning.org/

    Here is the blurb from the makers of the product:

     

    The eXe project developed a freely available Open Source authoring application to assist teachers and academics in the publishing of web content without the need to become proficient in HTML or XML markup. Resources authored in eXe can be exported in IMS Content Package, SCORM 1.2, or IMS Common Cartridge formats or as simple self-contained web pages.

    eXe is currently supported by CORE Education, a New Zealand-based not-for-profit educational research and development organisation. eXe grew out of the New Zealand Government Tertiary Education Commission’s eCollaboration Fund and was led by the University of Auckland, The Auckland University of Technology, and Tairawhiti Polytechnic. It has also been greatly assisted by a global group of participants and contributors.

    eXe was named a finalist in the New Zealand round of the IMS Global Learning Impact Awards 2008 and went on to claim a Leadership Award at the international judging. (eXe was rated Best in Show for "Content Authoring", and also one of the top 3 participant rated projects!)

  4. e-Learning Aurthoring Tools

    If you’re willing to make a small investment the the Adobe e-Learning Suite has a lot of functionality (http://www.adobe.com/products/elearningsuite/)

    If you’re looking for something cheap and cheerful (or free) then take a look at exeLearning (http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/exe/wiki) or CourseLab (www.courselab.com/)

    Another good tool for screencasting is Camtasia Studio (http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp)
