Easily Publish eLearning to Birch Learning Platform
In the world of learning, a Learning Management System (LMS) or Learning Platform (LP) is used to distribute eLearning content and track users’ results, responses to questions and interactions.
The process to load content into an LMS is to “Publish” or “Package” the training, wrapping it in programming standards (such as SCORM or xAPI) that allows it to interact with the reporting capabilities of the system.
Through long experience in the world of eLearning, we are still amazed to find people and organisations struggling with this basic eLearning function and the issues usually boil down to three key areas:
- The content development tool, or third party development programmers do not comply with SCORM or xApi standards.
- The LMS only accepts or can report on content built within the LMS or by the LMS vendor, effectively locking people into using the LMS.
- The LMS vendor does not allow clients to load their own content because the process is too technical.
B Online Learning is an organisation that embraces technologies that will work for all clients and provide unquestionable flexibility and reliability.
To this end our research and personal experiences, led us to choose Articulate as our preferred content development tool and to build Birch Learning Platform.
Our choices are based on the fact that these applications are easy to use, have extensive and comprehensive functionality and most importantly they make it very easy for our clients to publish and load their own eLearning content whenever they want.
First watch how to publish SCORM content from Articulate Rise.
Now see how to publish SCORM from Articulate Storyline.
Watch how easy it is to load these files to Birch Learning Platform.
We have used Articulate content as the example however Birch Learning Platform is compatible with any SCORM or xAPI compliant content.
It is really that simple and takes a few minutes from content being published to content being available in the learning platform.
If your LMS or content provider charges you to upload content or if this process is anything other than simple and reliable then contact us to find out more about Birch Learning Platform.
On a final note, if your LMS provider says that your content is not sending the correct information to the LMS , then test it in the SCORM cloud – if it works correctly there, then its the LMS not the content!
