Missed in all of the hubbub about healthcare and the economy was the deafening cries for elearning content that can be easily loaded on to a learning management system. Unfortunately, it just didn’t get the press it deserved. Apparently people were more interested in kissing pigs.
First, congratulations to our new President-elect, Barack Obama. Second, don’t worry, Mr. President, we’ve got you covered. With the Studio ’09 release, all three of our applications are SCORM- and AICC-compliant. This should free you up to focus on more important things.
Typically, people will build all of their courses in Presenter ’09 and then insert a Quizmaker ’09 quiz or an Engage ’09 learning interaction. However, there are times when you don’t want a big course and all you want is a single quiz or interaction. But you still want the ability to track them with your LMS.
Now, you can. So you can create big courses, little courses, stand-alone quizzes, surveys, and learning interactions using any of our products. And getting them ready for your LMS is just a matter of a few mouse clicks.
You’ll notice that the publish window for all three products has the same simple layout and design:
Here’s all you have to do to publish content for your LMS:
- Select the publish for LMS tab.
- Choose SCORM or AICC.
- Select your tracking and reporting options.
- You’ll get a file that can easily be uploaded to your LMS.
Note: Each LMS is a little different, so be sure to check with your LMS provider for specific details on how to upload your elearning course.
Now, you have the power to make your elearning courses as big or small as you want. And you can use any of the Articulate Studio ’09 applications to build them. They’ll be as easy to track as they are to build.
