You have educational content. Your staff, O2 Digital Media, or another contractor has taken your content and created a course. Now, how is the course delivered or made available?
There are several ways to deliver courses. Traditionally, organizations have used a Learning Management System (LMS). An LMS is a software application that is used for “administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, and delivery of eLearning education courses or training programs.”
O2 Digital Media is Learning Management System (LMS) agnostic. Our courses have been created for delivery on ten different LMS platforms or hosting services including Moodle, IntraLearn, Digital Ignite, Cornerstone, Intelladon, and Saba. Moodle is rated as one of the best LMSs in the world and in the fall 2011 represented 19% of the higher education market in the U.S. Moodle also accounts for a large share of the corporate market. Moodle is an open source LMS that has organizations across the world continuing to improve its capabilities.
- Moodle. Moodle is rated as one of the best LMSs in the world and in the fall 2011 represented 19% of the higher education market in the U.S. Moodle is also used by corporate training departments for similar reasons as the higher education market – Moodle is an open source LMS. There is a global framework of development partners who continue to improve Moodle’s capabilities. O2 Digital Manages a Moodle LMS with over one hundred courses for one of our long-term clients.
- SCORM conversion. SCORM is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based eLearning. SCORM defines how the student’s browser communicates with the LMS. It was created by the U.S. Department of Defense through its Advanced Distributed Learning initiative. There are a number of SCORM versions including the Tin Can API which was finalized into version 1.0 in April, 2013.
SCORM is used to package existing interactive eLearning courses for delivery on different LMSs. O2 Digital Media has successfully packaged hundreds of courses for delivery on several different LMS’s. SCORMed courses are a great way to extend your organization’s reach by licensing courses to another provider. It is also a good way to take courses created for one LMS and move them to another LMS when the organization changes LMSs.
- IntraLearn and other LMSs. IntraLearn was one of the early LMS companies founded in 1994. Today, more than 2,000 organizations are using IntraLearn to deliver courses across the world. IntraLearn, Moodle, and the other LMS platforms we have worked with are among the 500 providers worldwide according to the recent Bersin & Associates study.
- No LMS. What if your organizations doesn’t have an LMS and doesn’t want to invest in one. You are a small to mid-sized business, association, or non-profit and you just want to share content with a specific group of people. O2 Digital Media can help you identify how to deliver course content without an LMS.
