Over the next couple of weeks we will share our knowledge on the various tools that are available for mobile development in e-learning. Enjoy!
This open source software was developed to work with the LMS Moodle and tap into a lot of the pre-existing Moodle functionality. The main advantage of this software is being open source and fully integrated with Moodle. I found that beyond a few shortcomings this software has some great built in functionality with the customizability being limited only by a developer’s programming ability.
Being a plug-in that an administrator can add to an existing Moodle installation makes the ease of adoption for existing Moodle users and administrators a simpler process. MLE- Moodle is browser-based and also available as a standalone application. A disadvantage to this tool is that the courses developed with this tool are not SCORM compliant and unable to migrate outside the Moodle environment.
|Open source||Not SCORM compliant|
|Can be browser based and work as a standalone application||Difficult to modify if not technically inclined|
|Nice array of built in features|
Check back every few days as we continue to review the various mobile course development tools available to developers of mobile e-learning courses.
