210 Utilizing Multiple Platforms to Provide Online Training

1:15 PM - 2:15 PM Wednesday, November 16

Instructional Design


What happens when your current eLearning development tool and your LMS are not enough (and they often are not)? With myriad tools and platforms available, being married to one or only a few is not wise, nor does it provide you the flexibility to create dynamic learning opportunities.

In this session, you will learn ways to utilize multiple platforms and coding such as PHP and WordPress to achieve a better learning experience. You will learn that there are more options than simply using an eLearning software alone with your LMS, as eLearning software can be combined with WordPress and even PHP coding to allow for greater control and ease of use for the learning experience.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to connect your LMS to an external PHP coded page
  • How to utilize WordPress within your LMS
  • How to combine WordPress along with Articulate Storyline to develop an eLearning course
  • How to allow a PHP coded page to track within your LMS

Novice, intermediate, and advanced designers, developers, and project managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
WordPress, Articulate Storyline, Taleo Learning Management System, PHP Coding, Microsoft Access, and mySQL.
