Learning Tools

Posted by Novac Learning on May 7, 2019  blog

An Elearning set up is only as good as the Learning/Teaching tools it deploys. The list of learning tools is ever-growing and new tools are always being launched and even those that have been on the scene for a while, sometimes don’t garner enough attention to make it onto our radar, often getting overshadowed by more high-profile tools.

Though Content development is still the top priority for most L&D departments a subtle shift towards resource development (from purely course development) in the workplace has also paved way for new tools to emerge in order to fill the gap.

Of course Authoring tools are in huge demand but it is the asset development tools that are becoming increasingly popular which is largely dominated by the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, e.g.  Photoshop, Illustrator etc., One cannot ignore the emerging interactive content development tools like H5P and HiHaHo in today’s HTML5 heavy world. Organisations are beginning to see the importance of personal and continuous learning at work, which has placed Indeed and Degreed in limelight in the recent past.
