The many hats of eLearning
I wrote this article a few years back as a snapshot to reflect on where my career had taken me, up to that point.
As new skills are learnt, we wear more hats and broaden our contribution to the eLearning development process.
Even just recently we had a client that wanted to get the videos “off” an old training (interactive) DVD that they had. New computers don’t tend to have DVD players these days so they were looking at wanting to still keep using the content from the DVD, however access the videos via their LMS.
This hat was the “take our old DVD and get the videos off and upload the videos to an LMS” hat.
We ended up completely recreating the interactive DVD experience into an online interactive video experience delivered via their website and LMS.
The skills required for that particular project;
- Use of Handbrake (video software) to trans-code the videos from the DVD to computer based video files
- Adobe Premiere to edit the videos into smaller videos
- Adobe Captivate to import the edited videos and recreate the interactive experience
