I guess when it comes to creating content that is responsive to the device it is being displayed on, there are a few requirements. Possibly and in no particular order:
- SCORM compliant
- Easy to use
- Offer a number of interactive components
I am sure there are a few more that I have forgotten. Maybe multi-lingual should make the list, or Tin Can tracking rather than SCORM.
Well, with the tool I am building I am trying to answer as many of these questions as I can. While working on the tool, I decided to see how easy it would be to build it into Moodles tinymce editor. Tinymce editor is the native editor that comes with Moodle. All I wanted to do was add in my own controls to make the editing of content a lot easier.
Firstly, you need a responsive theme.
Secondly, a means to easily add responsive content.
And lastly, the ability to edit the content.
As you can see from the three animations above, I have managed to answer a few of these questions.
- It’s responsive – both the site and the content responding as one
- Easy to use – click a button and add some content
- Easy to edit – if you are familiar with Moodle, then you already know how to use the tool
- SCORM – well Moodle is handling the tracking and you could set topic completion or even restrict access using Moodle
- Customisable – new a new component, simply build it and add it as a button
There is still a little work to do on this tool, and I keep thinking of components to add. The SCORM version should be ready soon as… well I hope at least.
