The Best of eLearning in August 2015


August is a bittersweet month. It’s my birthday month, which is great (for me, anyway), but it also signals the end of summer, which is not so great. However, it’s been a pretty lively month here at Trivantis. Those of you who are subscribed to our monthly eNewsletter know that we launched the beta of our Responsive Course Design solution for Lectora® Online this month (sign up), and we couldn’t be more excited. What else happened in August? Take a look:

1. Responsive Course Design in Lectora

Normally I stick with written articles for the Best of August, but I wasn’t going to tease you with a mention of Responsive Course Design and not give you more details! Enjoy this recorded webinar from our Chief Technology Officer, John Blackmon, filling you in on all the juicy details.

2. Template Tuesday: File Folder

First off, “Template Tuesday” is a great name for a blog series, and I’m mad I didn’t think of it first. Second, this is a great Lectora template from the eLearning Brothers with easy customization options. Check it out!

3. 7 Tips to Streamline Translations

We love bringing you tips ands tricks from industry experts, and this post by Jennifer Valley is full of great info for anyone who needs to translate or localize a training course.

This article from Learning Solutions Magazine gives you some great examples of what you can track with xAPI (subscription or eLearning Guild login required to read the whole article).

Bonus post! We also covered xAPI on the Everything eLearning Blog here: Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success
