Instructional media can be "played back" on any technology
platform designated as AIMS Ready. A technology device that can be identified
as AIMS Ready is a device that can interpret the AIMS XML data and present
the step-by-step prompting information to the end user. Technology Developers
must build their systems in accordance with the AIMS XML Specification,
which details the specific set of capabilities that must be provided to
be able to label their system as AIMS Ready. The objective is to provide
an identification scheme for prompting systems whereby Content Users can
be assured that a device labeled as AIMS Ready will be able to playback
any and all AIMS content that they have developed or purchased. Initially,
players are available for Windows based computers, Tablet PCs, and Pocket
PCs. Other computing platforms like Macintosh, Linux, Unix, Palm, BeOS
are all feasible mediums; and even more special purpose platforms, such
as an Xbox or Playstation, could potentially be used to play back content.
If you have an "AIMS Ready" player, you can create
instructional content for use with the player by using AIMS
Task Builder. AIMS Task Builder is the application - provided by AbleLink
Technologies free of charge - designed to create, control, and place
each of these media or task elements for playback in any AIMS compliant
desktop, Tablet or handheld PC player. Elements may include custom images and
symbols, custom audio prompts, custom audio feedback, video clips, custom
text strings, an unlimited number of steps, decision points, multiple modes of play, and custom timing
to move from one step to the next. AIMS Task Builder is designed for
the creation of instructional media for specific individuals, and is
available to any registered AIMS Content User or Technology Developer wishing to create
instructional media for use in any AIMS compliant player.
