2014-03-06 13:59:51 - New software from Raptivity holds out a promise to go beyond learning interactions; helps create interactive learning experiences.
March 6, 2014
Raptivity®, the award winning interactivity building tool from Harbinger Knowledge Products, today announced the launch of Raptivity Linkerbeta, an innovative way to create short interactive learning experiences or learning arcs.
Raptivity Linker is a simple yet very powerful idea – going from a single modular interaction, to providing the ability to create a logical and meaningful sequence of interactions. Raptivity Linker will allow users to string together stand-alone Raptivity interactions and create a variety of learning arcs.
A learning arc consists of multiple interactions linked together into one cohesive and meaningful learning experience. One can customize learning arcs to meet the learners’ needs as well as instructional objectives. In some cases, the interactive learning arc may serve as a useful
micro-learning module, complete in itself. In other circumstances it could be a short learning snippet, forming a part of a larger course.
“Raptivity provides a wide range of interaction models across different categories. For the past few months, we have been working on a solution that would allow our customers to connect these interactions in interesting ways,” said Seema Chaudhary, President, Harbinger Knowledge Products. “We are excited about the possibilities that this will open up for our Raptivity users. Every learning arc will be unique. Users may choose to create stand-alone, mini-learning modules or learning nuggets which can be used with authoring tools, Learning Management Systems and web pages. I encourage everyone to sign up for a beta and share their comments with us. We have always been committed to the success of our customers and will continue to innovate and come up with solutions to better serve them.”
“Raptivity Linker fulfils an important unmet need in learning content creation,” explained Vikas Joshi, Chairman and Managing Director of Harbinger Group. “A single interaction is highly reusable, but sometimes too granular to meet a learning objective. On the other hand, an entire web based course potentially meets several learning objectives, but has limited reusability in new contexts. Learning arcs provide the middle ground – they are long enough to constitute a full learning experience, yet short enough to be used in different courses.” he added.
