Why Interactive Content is Absolutely Essential for any Best-In-Class LMS


Your employees have a lot on their plates, and all too often taking a training course isn’t their top priority. Yet it’s still incredibly important that they have a successful completion of the course, and retain the knowledge base you’re trying to develop in them. 

One of the most effective ways to engage employees in the learning process is through interactive content. A best-in-class LMS will give you the authoring tools to improve your course presentation and better connect with learners. You can use your learning management system to create content types like interactive video, quizzes, flashcards, and more. Another way to include interactive content is by using your learning management system to upload proprietary content that has already been created through a user friendly tool. Opigno LMS allows you to make your online courses more interactive with our integrations with SCORM 1.2 or 2004, TinCan, or H5P.

SCORM Compliant

SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM). It is a collection of e learning standards that makes it easier to share content between learning management system platforms. Opigno LMS is SCORM compliant, which means that with our user friendly tool, you can simply upload a SCORM package when you are creating your course presentation.

You can use SCORM files inside lessons, which allows you to use a mix of content imported from SCORM packages, and content that you’ve created with our authoring tool.

TinCan (xAPI) Compliant

Opigno also integrates with TinCan (xAPI), which is another specification for learning technology that allows you to integrate your LMS with a learning record store (LRS). Opigno is compliant with the majority of LRS programs you might want to use. A LRS allows you to see user info about the way learners are interacting with course content within your learning management system. For example, if they had a successful completion of a course, or a correct answer to a quiz question. You can also record the contents they have viewed, badges they have been awarded, and attendance.

H5P Compliant

H5P is a tool that allows you to create richer content for your online courses. Opigno LMS has the H5P authoring tool embedded in our LMS, allowing you to easily create a wide range of interactive activities. You can use different types of H5P content in your training course, such as interactive video, presentations with interactive slides, flashcards, drag-and-drop tasks, and fill in the blank exercises. Visit H5P.org to learn more about the various content types H5P allows you to enable.
