Best of the Best: Content Authoring Tools

eLearning 24-7

Again, not every tool below is SaaS based, but at some point, you have to move to the SaaS world, especially if you are offering or saying you do – some type of mobile learning functionality. I’ve seen some authoring tools that fit most of the criteria above, but whose ease of use is substandard or even really bad. There is never any pay for play here – even my vendor clients are aware that they may not win best of the best.

As the rapid content authoring market continues to grow, new features and capabilities are equally growing.

LCMS - Warehouse and Authoring

Tony Karrer

One thing is pretty clear, LCMS tools have really headed towards a kind of super Authoring tool and there's a related but quite distinct need for support for a Warehouse. The need for the Warehouse - keeping track of learning content assets across the organization has its own set of requirements. External vendors can work with the LCMS as well. This most often devolves into the LCMS being used to manage assets that will be packaged (authored) for distribution.

Product Review: Mindflash.com

eLearning 24-7

Mindflash.com bills itself as a training management system, with the ability to create and upload courses, invitee end users (learners) and track results. What I found was a solution that is a rapid e-learning authoring tool that offers easy to use functions as uploading learners and basic tracking results. A course dashboard that offers some intuitiveness and simple to use, with easy to follow tools. Track Results & Report.

APIs and Mashups r ur new ABCs for E-Learning

eLearning 24-7

Unfortunately, too many vendors in the e-learning space have failed to see the power and potential of this capability, and have decided to ignore them. An API (Application Program Interface) enables an interface from a piece of software to communicate with another piece of software (in its simplest form) or multiple pieces of software (called a mashup). However there are vendors who sell their API solution wrapped in a piece of software. LMS Vendors.

eLearning 24-7

Offers Lectora (rapid content authoring tool) as a separate option which can integrate with GeoMaestro. It is truly amazing on how vendors seem to think lots of stuff on the page, is the way to go and navigation is just a requirement. Secondly, a typically very common is the integration to the back end of the LMS – reports, tracking, etc. Why vendors still think this is not needed or used, makes no sense. Content Authoring Tool.

Right now, at m-learning vendor locations around the world, especially in the RCAT space, they should be scheduling meetings and coming up with a new perspective and approach to their products. For LMS vendors, adding “HTML5 feature sets makes sense – especially if they are adding mobile learning components in their system.

MyUdutu - you will need to create a free account before you can start using the authoring tool. MyUdutu is the authoring tool that is free, with typical rapid e-learning authoring components but with a unique twist – after completing the course you can either publish live, publish to your LMS – zipped file via a SCORM wrapper or publish to Facebook. Thus tracking would be an issue. Product Review.

There’s no vendor who creates Moodle per say. Kineo has recently worked on creating a classroom management add-on for a corporate client and has a fabulous Moodle reporting tool. Because (1) LMSs in corporations are primarily used to track stuff (IMHO) so until open source is truly able to slice and dice data (often custom reports) for executives they won't replace commercial LMSs. (2) Cammy, I think you're on the right track. Moodle is an awesome tool.
