Fact: Today’s learners interact with content and media differently than ever before.
The introduction of new technologies has revolutionized the way we communicate, consume information, and participate in the world around us. It has also changed the way we learn, thus triggering the need to rethink the way we approach content development and instruction.
FROST is a next generation tool for the development of digital and interactive learning content.
In its drag and drop workspace, FROST uses patterns to construct a learning sequence that engages students and appeals to a variety of learning styles. As learning concepts transform from ideas into tangible outputs, you can quickly preview them and test how they will render on popular devices.
A Closer Look at FROST’s Patterns.
FROST’s patterns can be used to create narrative learning content from scratch or to enhance existing content. Using basic HTML code, new patterns or assets can easily be created, defined and tagged with metadata for reuse.
Blocks allow you to order and classify content in a meaningful way. Some of the most common blocks include:
- Sections – Sequence content in the appropriate order
- Asides – Provide learners with additional context
- Learning Objectives – Establish key learning goals
Figures are used in various ways to visually reinforce learning. FROST supports numbered, unnumbered and decorative figures.
- Numbered – Reference labeled figures such as charts, diagrams, and organizational structures to better explain concepts, systems or processes
- Unnumbered – Embed unreferenced figures in narrative text to reinforce learning concepts
- Decorative – Use design elements such as icon representations, image based boxes, borders and more to enhance aesthetic appeal
Interactives provide opportunities for learners to truly engage with content.
- Gadgets – Embed previously created interactive elements such as animations, simulation and activities.
- Audio – Use audio excerpts to better explain concepts and explain examples
- Videos – Showcase videos to support learning constructs
