e-learning maker 3 by e-doceo, the authoring tool that facilitates the creation of e-learning training content
With its serious game engine, the software pushes back learning frontiers.
e-doceo, the French distance learning software publisher, is launching the new version of its authoring tool, elearning maker. A solution that combines simplicity and power for the creation of content and that gives everyone the opportunity to design a serious game in its on-line training system.
Based on the playful and interactive aspect of video games, serious games nevertheless keep one goal in mind: training. Something that should win over learners receptive to this type of original and attractive format. A genuine educational strategy, it is a winner in terms of getting learners involved but it is often difficult to implement...
With elearning maker 3, e-doceo provides "templates" i.e. models of graphic educational scenarios. The designer then inserts their raw training content into a pre-formatted framework, the "content kit". The four templates available match the e-learning e2c classification (grid created by e-doceo to rank the degrees of scenario and media), ranging from questionnaires to serious games.
A serious gaming engine is also embedded in the authoring tool, with a mini simplified programming language. Several other technological advances allow conditional logic in the scenarios giving free rein to the imagination of the designer (retrieval of evidence in part of a game, moving objects, etc.).
Producing complete e-learning courses is made easier and optimised by the increasing performance of the software. elearning's user interface has been streamlined for faster familiarisation. Access to the e-doceo media store web portal, , e-doceo's latest addition, enables customised media to be integrated into the training modules. These same modules can now be exported to smartphones.
Unveiled at a preview during a private event reserved for e-doceo customers, officially launched 5 April last during the annual seminar of the Users Club, elearning maker 3 is already available and approved by many users!
"8000 elearning maker licences are now deployed worldwide. With this latest version, e-doceo strengthens its position as leader in the innovation and performance of authoring tools" Jérôme Bruet, CEO of e-doceo explains. "The new features of the software represent a significant step forward for this tool. The development work completed by our teams optimally anticipates the users' needs.”
elearning maker version 3 of course retains the key features that have been its strength and success. The authoring software contains:
- Over 45 educational activities
- 3 design modes: screenwriter, simple and expert
- A multilingual production system
- Many exports
- Fast familiarisation
As for all e-doceo tools, elearning maker 3 complies with SCORM 1.2 and 2004 (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) and AICC 3.5, which ensure compliance with predefined standards for learning content. Seamless interoperability is thus possible between the tools available in the training world, especially with all LMS platforms on the market.
The new version of elearning maker completes the update of the entire e-doceo range of solutions providing ergonomic consistency suited to trainers, business line experts and media production studios, of whatever skill level.
