Jackrabbit Publisher™

Jackrabbit Publisher™ is an Agilant Learning technology used to rapidly assemble and PUBLISH dynamic learning content in XDS™ format. To create XDS™ format learning objects, we take original (or newly created) media files, create a spreadsheet data file, then use Jackrabbit Publisher™ to export. These exported learning objects can physically reside outside the LMS, while providing SCORM delivery inside any SCORM-conformant LMS, effectively solving many content distribution problems.

Jackrabbit Publisher™ utilizes principles of reusable learning object design, and exports fully portable, SCORM-conformant, XDS™ format learning objects. Jackrabbit Publisher™ comprises the following features:

  • Spreadsheet assembly: Assemble learning content using a spreadsheet. Use the columns and rows in the spreadsheet to create your course map, navigation “breadcrumbs”, page text, and link to video, animation, and graphic files, and to HTML links. Reorder, insert, or delete learning objects by inserting, deleting, or moving rows in the spreadsheet.
  • SCORM conformant: Export SCORM conformant learning objects
  • Flexible learning object granularity: Export learning objects at the Module level (three layers of hierarchy), Lesson level (two layers of hierarchy), or topic level (one layer of hierarchy)
  • Dual Use, Rapid Development: Use the spreadsheet for both 1) Script/storyboarding, and 2) Course Authoring, reducing redundant development steps. Because Jackrabbit Publisher™ uses the familiar spreadsheet format, course authoring and maintenance is fast and flexible, and collaborative development is easy, just email the spreadsheet to the person who needs to edit the course.
  • Publishing GUI: In the Publishing Graphic User Interface (GUI), the user can select content input (spreadsheet) location, content output location, learning object granularity, look and feel template, and language
  • Quizzes, Flashcards and Interactive Practice Exercises: Auto-generate Quizzes, Flashcards and other interactive practice exercises from data in your Excel file.
  • Choose Your Look and Feel: Select from several look and feel templates.
  • Developer reports: View development progress with online reports that show which media files have been added, to the course, which are remaining to be added, and file version dates for all media files.

Jackrabbit Publisher™ utilizes principles of reusable learning object design, and exports fully portable, SCORM-conformant, XDS™ format learning objects.
