DevLearn 2011 The Exhibitors
One of the most useful aspects of DevLearn is the Vendor Expo.
Here’s Jackie stabbing wildly at an LMS voodoo doll.
ZebraZapps – Allen Interactions made a big stripy splash at last year’s Devlearn , announcing their plans for a new cloud based approach to content development and asking volunteers to sign up for beta testing.
Underlying this development is a belief that the future of on-line learning will be granular, cloud based, with flexible aggregation of reusable assets to create unique learning experiences.
iSpring – the developers of our favourite Powerpoint based rapid authoring tool were showcasing some innovative new features, including AS3 compatibility. They also tell us they will have export to HTML5 by Spring next year. I see us making a lot more use of iSpring in the coming 12 months.
Nexlearn – This is the third year we have spent time at the NexLearn stand. They have a really impressive SimWriter tool for rapid creation of high quality branching case studies and simulations. We’ve previously been deterred by the cost, but they now provide a $1500 entry level version which looks to meet all our needs. We have a project for a branching case study in the pipeline so this could be the year we take the plunge.
Plenty of old friends too – Codebaby, eLearning Bros, Rapid Intake, GoToTraining and it was good to catch up with Lani and Sarah at the Sound 80 stand and sample Angies’s authentic Kettle Corn, Milwaukee’s finest. If you are looking for US voices for your elearning, then we highly recommend Sound 80.
