    E-Learning SCORM Editors

    HI All,

    Not sure if this has been asked on here before but here goes.

    We are looking to purchase a SCORM editor so we can create some content for our VLE.

    Does anyone know a good editor thats simple to use because we want to teach our staff how to use it..

    Thanks Steve

    You also have LodeStar Learning, Learning Essentials for Microsoft Office (which is actually a version of Thesis Lite), there are 3 different packages from Hunterstone which include Thesis Lite, Thesis Standard and Thesis Professional.

    Also, remember that the latest version of Hot Potatoes has a SCORM export feature.

    Also have a look at ReLoad.

    It may also be worth an occasional visit to the home of SCORM, the Advanced Distributed Learning site, to look at press / events, as you sometimes find links to interesting companies on there too

    Also a new product from RM I was looking at BETT is RM Fuse must say I was very impressed. When looked at exe learning and nots uni one a while back. Thought they where good but not very teacher friendly.

    Got few currently looking at I might do some research into this and look at the features of them all. Once done I will post results up.

    General teaching staff or specialised support staff? Xerte, Deltalearn, eXe and Reload are metadata editors, more for developers than teaching staff. Hot Potatoes actually produces SCORM activities - it's more the sort of thing you can sit staff in front of and explain "right, to make a SCORM quiz you first...". See also www.contentgenerator.net.

    Have a look at digital workshop they have a product called opus pro which is very powerful and very easy to use and is SCORM compliant.

    Are you using it at the moment? Are staff using it? How does the bulk standard teacher find it? When I originally saw it I thought it was overpriced for the money due to the lack of object library (the only thing that makes Thesis Professional acceptable to be honest otherwise that would be way over-priced too!)

    I would like to know too! What sort of stuff are you producing with it? And do teachers rate it?

    We're using Opus Headstart Pro 6 and the IT staff seem to find it pretty good indeed.

    Wasn't that expensive either...

    sorry to dig up this old thread, but this is a really good online scorm editor

    myUDUTU

    It's completely on-line, you must register, but it's free.

    Really simple to use, even a teacher could manage it.

    There is even a moodle plugin for it

    Try Xerte. It is now open source and it reminds me of the support that first attracted me to Moodle.

    Hi all.

    I have had problems actually understanding where Microsoft Sharepoint and Thesis librarian actually sits in.
