We know that you want control over the development and maintenance of your eLearning courses. You would prefer your eLearning is produced with the latest authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline or Lectora Inspire that give you the features and flexibility you want.
You prefer eLearning Authoring tools because they allow:
You want tools that can be used by your team to quickly produce simple and small eLearning courses, avoiding the cost and effort of outsourcing. All your team needs is some proficiency in PowerPoint, and sound Instructional Design basics.
You want to make those last-minute changes to the course (to keep the content current or change the completion criteria) at any time, even though the entire course development was outsourced.
You want the option of holding on to the source files without being tied to any vendor for future updates. All you would need to do is to open the source files in the authoring tool, make changes and republish it.
Authoring tools can publish to HTML5 for multi-device compatibility and responsive design. This makes it easy to turn ILT material into eLearning curriculums, microlearning nuggets, mobile learning and digital job-aids.
It is very easy to translate a master eLearning course (usually, in English) to any international language using authoring tools. With the click of a button, you can export the content to an RTF format that leaves space for the translator to fill in the target language. The translated text can then be integrated along with the translated audio and published to HTML5.
These tools have eliminated the difficulty and tedium of making eLearning courses comply with technical standards such as AICC, SCORM and Tin Can API. Authoring tools are also extremely helpful in meeting accessibility standards such as WCAG or Section 508.
