As we approach BETT it is fascinating to note the rapid convergence of interest between Learning Platforms and handhelds. The reason is that thousands of schools are just now implementing their first VLEs, and they looking for content. This must then support the wide range of devices that students have, including web capable games machines, webbooks, phones etc.
SUMS has had to develop quickly "disaggregated SCORM 2004" versions of all of our 90+ games. That is, the content is still designed for the small screen but delivered via the VLE. There are eight free samples at www.sums.co.uk/scorm.htm for those with a VLE to play on. For those unfamiliar with SCORM and Learning Platforms, disaggregated means that each activity is in its own pack. That allows it to be easily integrated by the teacher into whatever lesson content they have already available to them. We have schools using StudyWiz, Fronter, Moodle, Kaleidos and many others.
Please do come and see us on stand SW88 at BETT (software village). We will have the usual demos of Sony PSPs, ASUS eeePCs, and Windows Mobile Devices, as well as lots of free evaluation software.
