7 reasons why the new Articulate Storyline is a Game-Changer for eLearning

mLearning Revolution

The day after leaving Adobe, I had my first meeting with Arlyn Asch, Articulate CTO, who spent time with me going over Storyline and after an hour of talking to Arlyn and seeing what they were working on, it was a enough for me to believe that sure enough Storyline was going to be a game-changer. Storyline approaches making software simulations in a whole new ways as compared to Adobe Captivate. Storyline also comes with a feature called Action Fine-tuning, which allows you to go back and make fine adjustment to your software simulations. User Interface and User Experience.

NASA goes MMO

NASA wants to start a MMO ( Massive Multiplayer Online game ) as an educational game. This certainly goes towards a full laboratory simulation if you ask me. It surely looks promising, or as they say it: "The idea of the MMO educational game is to present NASA content in such a way as to draw students into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics learning and to spark interest in STEM-oriented careers." At our institute we are working on a game that involves HIV/AIDS, but I will keep you informed on this one as we proceed with our plans Look here.

Movements are then mapped to a simulated environment projected on a computer screen. We may first see widespread use of modern augmented reality technology in the gaming world. Microsoft’s Project Natal for the XBox Platform is attempting to remove the controller from game play by capturing the motion of the person playing the game through an innovative camera setup. The motion capture allows the gamer to interact with the virtual world that exists in the game. This type of technology is not limited to the world of games however.
