Expectations From eLearning Authoring Tools

Upside Learning

While searching I realized that many learning professionals often confuse between their requirements and the specific features offered by the chosen tool. Should be able to import/export content (like PPT, DOC, or simple HTML), and allow for edits after import. Should be able to import external Flash SWF as well as audio and video in variety of popular formats.

How to create an online course in TalentLMS

You can: directly upload a video, record a video through your webcam (no software required), paste the URL of a YouTube video, enter a search term and pick a YouTube video from the results, upload a PowerPoint presentation and have it automatically converted into a video. You can add PowerPoint (ppt, pptx), MS Word (doc, docx), Excel (xls, xlsx), and Adobe PDF (pdf) files. The “Add Flash Object” form lets you add an interactive Flash animation (SWF file) to your course.

As the developer clicks on each comment in turn, Captivate automatically navigates to the correct slide and the correct moment in the slide so that the developer can immediately see exactly what the tester could see and does not have to spend time searching for it. Widgets are specially formatted Flash swf files that know how to communicate with the host Captivate project. This feature automatically searches your Captivate project and builds a Table of Contents for it.
