An Authoring Tool is Only as Good as the Person Using it

Just acquiring the latest authoring tools is not enough. You need a partner who can use these tools to get you results at extraordinary speed, quality, scale, and cost.

You want freedom and autonomy. We get it.

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:

In-house Course Development for Simpler Needs

You want authoring 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.

Last Minute Tweaking

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.

Future Updates

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.

Let’s See How Authoring Tools Actually Produce Rapid eLearning Solutions

Blending ILT with eLearning, Microlearning and Digital Job-aids

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.

Flash to HTML5 eLearning Course Conversions

The source files for legacy courses (developed in obsolete software or earlier versions of authoring tools) might not always be available. The latest authoring tools (Articulate Storyline 360, Lectora Inspire, Adobe Captivate) are ideal for such legacy conversions.

Translating English language courses into international languages

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.

Making eLearning courses technically compliant

Authoring 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.
