    Nelson Thorne - VLE Content

    There have been some post about Nelson Thornes software but I need opinions on their VLE content software.

    Is anyone using it?

    What problems have you encountered (if any)

    On paper it looks useful until the name Nelson Thornes starting ringing alarm bells, so feedback would be welcome.

    Does this mean we may be guinea pigs for this VLE stuff?

    You are joking aren’t you!? How firmly is your tongue in your cheek? IMHO NT software has never the best when compared to software from our publishers. My advice - dont bother!

    Interestingly our local rep said they have n content that is yet compatible with a VLE - Alan what software have they offered you ?

    Re: Nelson Thorne - VLE Content

    The brochure doesn't actually say whether they are SCORM complient or not, but they plan to have all of their titles available as a VLE, currently moodle with others to follow in the future.

    Current VLE titles are:

    ICT Framework Solutions Live
    ICT for You
    EXP Maths 7, 8 & 9
    Scientifica 7, 8 & 9
    Voila 1,2
    Rigolo 1

    Other than the usual blurb it tells me nothing else. Our ICT Co-ord is only considering it at the mo so I'm not in panic mode yet
