Audio Split across multiple slides


Initially, while importing audio, a dialog box came up and I was able to split the audio among the many slides; now I the dialog box is not displayed, preferences are checked.  Pl let me know how to resolve this.

Next, I was able to see all the slides and move them accordingly based on the preferred timeline; the slides are not displayed at all; I would have to add audio individually to each slide which is a lot of work and the software is supposed to do this.

I guess, these two issues are interconnected. Kindly let me know how to work around this if this is a known bug.

What is the difference between competencies, skills and learning outcomes – and does it matter?

Während es sich hierzulande in den letzten Jahren etwas eingependelt hat, zwischen Wissen, Fertigkeiten, Qualifikationen und Kompetenzen zu unterscheiden, ist es im Englischen etwas vertrackter. Denn neben competencies stehen hier skills und literacies, und schon ist man mittendrin in der Diskussion. Tony Bates bietet uns als Lesehilfe an, „competencies“ als Ziele konkreter Entwicklungspfade zu verstehen, skills dagegen (wie in „21st-century skills“) als offene, übergreifende und dynamische Konzepte. Hier ein Satz, den ich mir angestrichen habe:
„However, transversal skills, skills that can be valuable in many different job contexts, and also in life in general, are likely to be more valuable in the long run than short-term competencies …“

Tony Bates hat jedenfalls die Kommentarspalten geöffnet und freut sich auf weitere Einordnungen.

Higher Ed and eLearning Content

HI all.

It has been a little bit since I posted as the work front has been pretty busy. Looking to do more on the community in the next while as I get further settled into a new job.

But this is why I am posting. I work in Higher Ed and we are obviously doing a lot of remote work at the moment. We have received some feedback about the online offering we have as being less than stellar. I think part of it comes down to the engagement factor for an asynchronous delivery.

My question to the group is, as a new member of a team, how do I approach making a recommendation on adding more engaging content using eLearning? I think investing in some software and development time could make a big difference in how content is being served up. But I just do not know if the organization does or not.

Curious to hear your responses. All tips and suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks all.

Failure message not being shown on Drag and Drop

Hi Folks!

I am working on an e-learning project with a DnD slide where I have 2 drop targets and 1 drag source. The On Success action is working fine (i.e. taking to next slide) while the issue lies in On Failure action, it does not take me to the slide I want to.

I tried achieving it using Execute Advanced Actions, Show and Hide Failure message, but nothing seems to work out. I would really appreciate the help from the forum as I am unable to proceed with my work.
