How Microsoft Semblio Works

Ready to create content that comes to life?

Using Microsoft Semblio, you can create rich, immersive multimedia learning material that’s highly interactive and fosters exploratory learning that teachers can customize, and that promotes collaboration. Because Semblio takes a platform approach to content creation—leveraging the flexibility of the Microsoft .NET Framework—it works across software, services, and learning management systems. This allows you to meet the demand for more customized solutions, while still providing you with control over how your material is adapted.

The Microsoft Semblio Software Development Kit (SDK) is built on Windows Presentation Foundation and provides a programming model and tools that facilitate the packaging and arrangement of .NET-based content such as:

  • Semblio content elements, from simple buttons to highly complex activities
  • Templates, wizards, and other supporting tools for use with the assembly tool
  • Complete interactive courses

But Semblio is not just a developer tool; it will also include an assembly tool, released with the next version of Microsoft Office. This will allow multiple content types to be combined into a single, rich, multimedia presentation, all in a single, familiar, and easy-to-use Microsoft Office-like application for educators. Also included is a player that students and educators can use to view and interact with presentations.
