We work hard and party harder!

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. The Raptivity team believes in the same. When we work, we know nothing else and when we party, we know no bounds. The last two quarters were pretty busy for the Raptivity team. There were some major releases and events planned like AS 3.0 release, Tin Can support, special webinar series, etc.  After successful delivery of all such significant releases and projects, we took a much deserved break earlier last month to rejuvenate and recharge ourselves.

Using Bloom’s to Target the Objectives

During my recent webinar "Hitting The Target With Technology Enhanced Learning Objects" I discussed a number of key elements required to design effective learning objectives.

One of these elements, and the one I consider the most important, is objectivity.

Having learners achieve the objectives of a course is critical for their ongoing training and development. The course design, including the learning interactions, can have a significant impact on the success of the learning objectives being achieved.

Raptivity takes care of your budget blues with Annual Licensing!

In this budget crunched world, every organization is struggling to find a balance between obtaining technology solutions to remain productive and keeping expenses in control. At times, investing in software is also affected by the same perplexity and falls prey to budget constraints. Raptivity team got requests from many of you suggesting us to offer some more pricing options that could fit in your budgets. The team strategized over the issue and decided to come up with the annual licensing option, an alternative software licensing option.

Creating Engaging Online Learning

Online learning comes in two general forms: synchronous and asynchronous. Synchronous online learning happens when several individuals (learners) are communicating or interacting with each other at the same time. This often happens online with a webinar. An online chat room or instant messaging system could also be deemed synchronous. Learners need to be present at a specified time and at the same time or “in sync” with the instructor. Asynchronous learning, on the other hand, frees the learner from the time the instructor is available.
