Earlier this year Riptide’s Learning Division added to their html5 courseware arsenal. In addition to the Elements courseware, that delivers highly interactive elearning to any device and in any language, Elements released an innovative new courseware product, Waypoints. Elements® WayPoints provides an in-line training experience that can work for any web-based software. The major portion of WayPoints courseware involves a unique learning experience in-line with the product and it provides simulations through guided workflows that have the learner directly interfacing with the software. Using xAPI, Waypoints also provides competency based assessments and training activity data.Read More >>
Riptide Learning Director, Nick Washburn, has been invited to present an eLearning webinar for the Association for Training and Development (ATD) member audience. Riptide Elements® software has a diverse and growing client case of enterprise implementations that will help to inform participants of the session entitled,“Demystifying the Enterprise Learning Ecosystem.” The software framework provides highly interactive, device agnostic, multilingual e-learning all over the world. With technology progressing at such a rapid pace, many industry professionals may not realize what is possible right now, how easily it can be done, and how relatively inexpensive it is compared to just 5 or 10 years ago. By leveraging new technology, Riptide Elements is able to connect information to multiple LMS’, HR systems, talent management, using SCORM/AICC, and more.Read More >>
With the proliferation of complex online services and web based software, training and documentation have become crucial in acquiring and retaining users. Enterprise web-based software need to train their users on how to use their software. That may seem like an obvious statement but providing effective, up-to-date software training for software applications is critical to people actually using the software so they can do their job.Read More >>
The Riptide Elements team has recently implemented some platform solutions around building and storing xAPI statements with respect to our course ware. The primary issue was: what should happen when attempting to store an xAPI statement with an error or client connection loss? The problem is twofold -- one part being, statements can occasionally be created with malformed structure, and the second is a loss of user data when a bad statement prevents others from being stored to the LRS. To tackle this problem, the Elements engineering team got together to brainstorm some potential solutions.Read More >>
Last month, Riptide Software participated in the most well attended xAPI event to date and it happened here in Orlando. Many vendors and service providers who’ve been working with the Experience API for a long time were invited by Aaron Silvers & Megan Bowe with their Connections Forum to speak at the first xAPI Camp. With so many excellent examples of how the Experience API is being used, and with a standing-room-only crowd at the UCF Campus, we were all pretty much blown away. All the vendors there had a chance to talk about our xAPI user stories and what other products were being used to solve customers' business problems. There was such interest and a diverse audience, it got me thinking about moving faster on something the Riptide Learning team planned to launch later this year. The time to help people with an easier path into using the Experience API is now.Read More >>
Riptide Learning, a division of Riptide Software, Inc., will demonstrate the first ever xAPI-enabled training for rifle marksmanship ranges on Dec. 3 at I/ITSEC. Riptide’s REAPER proof of principle was selected by the ADL for demonstration at PlugFest—a satellite event at the 2014 Interservice/Industry Training Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). I/ITSEC is the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training conference.
