Rapid Authoring – Freeform Vs Template Based

Upside Learning

Udutu is one of such tool which uses templates for authoring. While developing courses using our internal rapid authoring framework, we often use a few custom complex interactivities – like small games – developed through Flash and integrate it in the course as external interactivity. Articulate community does provide some readymade PPT templates which you can use and save time on design and layout.
