Content Transformation

The FlexTraining Learning Management System has the ability to deliver a wide variety of technology formats to your online learners. In fact, you can utilize learning content in any format that can be read by a web browser, including HTML, text, images, video, audio, Flash, PowerPoint, Word and formats created by third-party authoring tools like Toolbook. These formats are delivered, tracked and managed without "converting" them into a special format for FlexTraining; they are simply utilized in their native format.

You may elect to convert content from one format to another. Why? You will want to select the best format for your learning content, taking into consideration the volume of your material, the technology available to your audience and the connection speeds of your learners.

Below are just a few examples of content formats that you might want to consider transforming before using it in your online courses.
