FlexTraining Learning Management System - Learning Material

Content Transformation

FlexTraining has the ability to deliver to your online learners a wide variety of technology formats. In fact, with the FlexTraining Learning Management System, you can utilize learning content in any format that can be read by a web browser. This includes HTML, text, images, video, audio, Flash, PowerPoint, Word and formats created by third-party authoring tools like Toolbook. These formats are delivered, tracked and managed without "converting" them into a special format for FlexTraining; they are simply utilized in their native format.

Why then, would a FlexTraining user need to convert content from one format to another? This answer is that you will want to select the best form for your LMS learning management system for online training and related content, considering the volume of your material, the technology available to your audience and the connection speeds of your learners themselves.

Almost any information format can be converted to one that makes sense for your learning audience. Some of these "transformations" are primarily automated while others require a good deal of manual effort. Below are just a few examples of content formats that you might want to consider transforming before using it in your online courses.
