How to Use Microsoft eLearning Software

Microsoft offers a free elearning software tool called Microsoft Learning Content Development System (LCDS). This tool gives the Microsoft training and certification community the ability to create online courses and Microsoft Silverlight Learning Snacks. The LCDS allows anyone in the Microsoft training and certification community to publish eLearning courses and Learning Snacks by completing the easy-to-use LCDS forms that generate customized content, activities, quizzes, games, assessments, animations, demos, and other multimedia.

There are four main steps in the LCDS elearning course development:

  • Refine – Make your desired changes and save your work.
  • Delight – Publish your course and distribute it to your audience via the web or a learning management system (SCORM 1.2).
