Its nearly Halloween and with that comes the shocking and fearful excitement or lack thereof of the scariest things on the plane appearing at the movie theaters, in costumes, television and for us, the course authoring tool market.

Long has tools such as Studio and Captivate been on the higher side, the same can be said for vendors such as Rapid Intake and dominKnow.

Lectora’s Snap! Lectora Snap! Spelling – I am always surprised at the number of authoring tools who do not have this feature. 77 components – Beyond the common ones include: Whiteboard, Fiery Text (that one was fun), Form Calendar, Animation (Motion XML), Media RSS Feed (more in one sec.), Lectora compares this product to Articulate Engage and frankly I think that is a mistake.

What I like about conferences is the ability to see the latest products and hear the pitches from the vendors. Yet, for all that do it, their are equal number of vendors who do not. Vendors who do not have anyone in their booth, during expo times – I see this at all shows, regardless of the product or market; but at e-learning/training shows you see it a lot OR you see them eating in their booth.

She’s also the author of a new book by that same title– eLearning Department of One. Incident Management Software. And then one of the things I talk about a lot with people is they’re always concerned about how much authoring tools cost. Authoring tools are a huge monetary investment, and I believe in open-source and I love the power of the people. So once we get to the authoring tool stage, then it gets faster.
