On Line learning/Authoring Tools

By Dayle1011 ·
Hello Everyone,
I'm new to my company and new to the development of online learning. I'm extremely interested in gathering suggestions to tools to be successfull in this endeavor.

Does anyone have any insight to where I can go for training in authoring tools such as Articulate and Captivate in the New York City area? I'm also investigating LMS's. If you are currently using a LMS, please share your likes/dislikes with it, the types of subject matter you are using the LMS for and what you would recommend.

Thank you everyone for any help.

No idea on the training, but here are some LMSs

by jmgarvin In reply to On Line learning/Authorin ...

Personally, I love WebCT. It's robust and able to work on middle end servers pretty well. It's mostly Perl and HTML/XML, so no biggies in maintenance there.

I've also been a Blackboard admin, but I found that the building blocks were irritating and quite hard to implement in a timely fashion.

On that note, if you are simply doing screen records, I prefer Camtasia over Captivate. Articulate is ok, but a little hard to pick up out of the gate.

Hope that helps.

Course development tools and LMS

I know its a year since you posted it :). I thought I should respond to it bacuase I am sure you would still want to look at more otions for efficiency.

To my knowledge Tool Book, Saba Publisher and Articulate are good tools.

Additionally uage of tols depends on the need on how simple or complex your courses are. Also flash is great platform to buid a cutomized elaerning courses.

FOr your questions there are variety of LMS' but few brands like SumTotal, Saba are expensive to sit in your firewalls bu they do offer hosted services.

Vuecentra is a good option. You can try Moodle which is an open source and ecnomical.

Thank you
