Microsoft have also entered the "free" tool market for eLearning with the release of their LCDS - Learning Content Development System.

However, before you rush off and start using this, there are a number of things you need to know!

  • Whilst it is allegedly SCORM 1.2, I have not met anyone yet who can run it in an LMS other than the Sharepoint Learning add-on
  • You can create a web versions that runs outside of an LMS BUT it has to be running on an IIS box - I tried it on a Linux box and it didn't work but when moved to an IIS box, it then runs perfectly.

I created a brief demo which I will send you on request - simply unzip the package and run the file "wrapper.htm" - it will work fine on your PC! (assuming it is running Microsoft of course! Laughing)
