Microsoft today announced that Office Mix will support SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model), the industry standard for packaging of digital learning content. With Office Mix, you can use PowerPoint to record audio or video using a webcam and microphone, and add digital ink to your slides.
Typically, e-Learning projects begin with an instructional designer, who uses PowerPoint to create a storyboard of the learning material. The instructional designer then works with the rest of the e-Learning team to author the content and insert short quizzes, or “knowledge checks” for the audience. At the final step, the content is packaged, published and hosted on a learning management system (LMS) for the audience to watch. With this release of Office Mix, we have provided the ability to export mixes to SCORM, so that online lessons can be delivered through compatible Learning Management Systems (LMS).
By using Office Mix, training professionals can simplify the development and maintenance of e-Learning. Authors can simultaneously co-author content using PowerPoint Online and store the files in OneDrive or OneDrive for Business. E-Learning developers will welcome PowerPoint’s ability to easily copy slides from one deck and paste them into another, by building reusable learning objects that can be repurposed in multiple training materials.
