    titleMONITORING ENVIRONMENT
    borderStylesolid

    The Monitoring Environment is where LAMS instructors can view their Learner's progress through a sequence.

  • Starting a Lesson
    When a sequence has been Authored, it has to be "run" through the Monitoring Environment.
  • Using Live Edit
    Live Edit is a feature available in LAMS 2.0.3 that allows Monitors to modify sequences that have already been started.
  • Live Edit Update in LAMS 2.1
    In LAMS 2.1 there are some slight changes to Live Edit what monitors can change using Live Edit. This Animation explains the changes and where they might be useful.
  • Opening Schedule Gates before Assigned Time
    Sometimes a Schedule (Timed) Gate needs to be opened before the time specified by the Author. In LAMS 2.1, Monitors can now open Scheduled gates prematurely.

    h4. Branching Activities...
    
    These activities create multiple 'paths' through a sequence. There are several ways to create Branches:
    * *[*...by Teacher Selection*|Branching, Teacher Selected]*
    \\
    The simplest form of Branching, allowing the teacher (monitor) to manually assign branches to specific students (learners).
    
    * *[*...based on Groups*|Branching, Group Based]*
    \\
    Linking a Grouping Object with a Branching Object filters the members of each group to a specific branch.
    
    * *[*...based on Tool Outputs*|Branching, Tool Output]*
    \\
    Finally, the results from previous activities can determine which branch a learner is filtered to.

    LAMS Integrations
    LAMS works well as a stand-alone e-learning system. It can also be integrated with other educational software such as a Learning Management System (LMS) / Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). A LAMS integration is module built for a specific LMS/ VLE that it handles the communication between the two systems. This module acts as a bridge between them making them behave as one unified system.

    You can download the Wink source files from Saturn, the MELCOE File Server Image Removed. Look for the files with the .wnk extensionImage Added
    Each animation should have a 7zipped .wnk file as one of its attachments.
    Translating a Wink is very easy. Download the wink program and the .wnk file from saturn the LAMS Wiki under the attachemnts tab for the wink. Open the file in Wink and then use the export text command under the project menu. This will create a .txt file that you can translate and then import back into the wink. You can then upload the wink into your translation space.

    You will also need the LAMS logos and images to create the preloader screen. These are available from here (LAMS Community Login required.
