Times are changing – trends in the content authoring tool market

Courselab – The best free open source product on the market. As the rapid content authoring market continues to grow, new features and capabilities are equally growing.  For the most part, that is a great thing, but as you are about to read, some are not.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

Rapid Content Authoring Tools: Market, Mayhem and Reality

eLearning 24-7

CourseLab – ADL SCORM certified, no less. As the evolution of e-learning continues, the rapid content authoring tools (RCAT) market follows suit. This is a growing market with new vendors showing up, but at the same time, others disappearing. While the assumption would be that all the products are alike, or that fee based tools are superior to their free counterparts, nothing could be farther than the truth.  Sure, there are quite a few RCATs, fee based that are very impressive, there are an equal number that are unimpressive or bewildering. Is it PowerPoint converted to Flash?
