There are endless tools for creating eLearning, but few that are easy to use, can create truly interactive learning experiences, and are xAPI-enabled from the ground up to track and understand your learners’ journeys. Enter PeBL, an open source code base for creating personalized eBooks for learning. eBooks may not come to mind as interactive learning experiences, but things have come a long way since the first Kindle. Now you can embed multimedia, deliver multiple versions of content, score understanding, enable group collaboration, and much more. Whether you’re creating job aids, digital workbooks for teacher-led courses, self-paced materials, or shared experiences, you can create content that teaches, tests, and adapts to people’s unique needs.

In this session you will learn how to design and build a PeBL learning experience using extensible open source software. You’ll explore examples of existing creations, discussing problems you want to solve, and getting the open source code base to create interactive, personalized eBooks for learning.

In this session you will learn:

  • How to create and publish a PeBL learning experience
  • How to make effective design decisions to create the most effective learning solution
  • How to improve your PeBL with open source extensions that make your content collaborative and adaptable
  • Connect your PeBL to an LRS to collect and analyze data on the performance of your learners and the effectiveness of your learning solutions
