SCORM Explained

SCORM Explained
What is SCORM? SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern, it is purely a technical standard. Can you help me with an example or analogy? Let’s take DVDs for example. The SCORM standard makes sure that all e-learning content and LMSs can work with each other, just like the DVD standard makes sure that all DVDs will play in all DVD players. The Cost of Content Integration What does SCORM stand for? SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. “Reference Model” reflects the fact that SCORM isn’t actually a standard. Do you produce SCORM? No. So how do you guys fit in the picture?

Tutorial | Captain Captivate Using Slide Video in Captivate 5/5.5 Posted on 21. Jul, 2011 by captivatehero. One of the great features that was introduced with Captivate 5 is the ability to use Slide Video. This video import type allows you to span the video file over multiple slides allowing for the development of sophisticated video interactions. The only other way that video can be used is by importing a FLV or F4V file to one slide. After you try using Slide Video for the first time - you’ll realize that there are numerous possibilities for building creative interactions. Step-by-step instructions with bullet pointsTalking head describing a process in the Table of ContentsScenario training with branching to a different section of the videoUsing draw shapes and graphics to overlay the video over multiple slides Example of Slide Video in a step-by-step process. For these step-by step procedures the video remained in the same location on each slide it appeared on. Let’s take a look at how to use Slide Video.

Modules and plugins The Remote Learner Adobe Connect Pro activity module provides the officially sponsored integration method between Moodle and Adobe Connect Pro. It was developed in conjunction with the Remote-Learner development team and Adobe Inc. It is designed to simplify the use of synchronous events within Moodle. The module allows users to create Adobe Connect Pro meetings by adding an activity instance and providing the meeting name, url (optional), start time, end time, meeting template and a public or private meeting setting. There is also support for Moodle groups so that users who are only a part of a group can join meetings that are only for their Moodle group. Any user who creates or joins a meeting will have their account created on the Adobe Connect server (if one doesn't exist) and they will be signed in automatically using HTTP header authentication. This module creates 3 roles: Adobe Connect Host, Presenter and Participant in Moodle to reflect the roles on the Adobe Connect server.

The problem is that the world and what we know about learning has changed. Many education leaders point their fingers at the teacher as the problem . If you have ever taught, anywhere one has to consider what permission do you have to show your skills , and , who decides how much you have invested in the school, what resources are given to the pupil, and to the teacher and most importantly, what kind of support is there for teaching, and learning and community support. How do our respective national goals affect teaching and learning? What can we as educators do when faced with these problems and to what extent do these problems exist? The Gender Divide
