Authoring Tools- The DevLearn Experience

eLearning 24-7

I readily admit that I was unsure what to expect. I suspected that the expo would feature a large quantity of rapid content authoring tools. From products that ranged from the latest versions of RCATs to new vendors in the space, including text to speech. . In the demo at their booth, they readily showed numerous avatars, and it would have been very cool to see the true synch experience – something that Storyline cannot do.

The RCAT (rapid content authoring tool) market continues to be healthy with nothing to slow it down – uh, except maybe one thing (more on that later).

I am still surprised on how vendors who are offering assessment only tools are staying in the game.

The king of authoring tools.
