Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

To focus more on rapidly authored eLearning content, I am excluding the screen recording tools which are mainly used for software simulation type of courses.

As the behavior and layout is pre-programmed for each template, it doesn’t require programming or designing skills to develop the course content. Many template-driven tools provide facility to include custom developed content in the course mix.
