Why use this software product?
Rapid ROI :
Reduce the total cost of creating courses:
Easy to use :
No programming required.
Easy to update :
There is no programming necessary, done as needed by non-technical experts (content or SME experts who are familiar with the curriculum); a click and create approach. No complicated logistics are involved.
Admissible Expense :
In Quebec: This product is considered a qualified expenditure under Bill 90 (1% of a companys budget must be spent on training). Therefore, it is potentially 100% deductible (i.e., free!).
An integrated instructional design methodology guides course designers through each step, allowing them to create effective courses with instructional value.
Power of Interactive Multimedia :
Interactive multimedia capabilities are integrated into the software.
Course Creation Process :
Authoring Edit covers the entire process of creating a multimedia training course, from analysis to publishing, including all of the design, production and integration steps in between. Unique functionalities distinguish this system from other authoring applications because its a one stop shop: There is no need to use any other software tools. Currently developed content you may now have that was built in Flash, Java, PowerPoint, and other tools can be incorporated into the courses you build using this product.
Accessible Online Learning:
The good news: the tools that allow this product to be used to its full potential are also becoming more accessible (digital cameras and video, 3-D animation, simulation, etc.).
Reuse of Multimedia Assets :
The media manager feature allows multimedia content from one course to be reused in another course, in the same course, or in other applications. Since this is an open, non-proprietary system, files are saved in their original formats.
Clients that purchase this product are completely independent right from the start. In fact, it comes with its own How to Use course that is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes long and allows users to start creating a course without having to attend conventional classroom training.
Customer Support :
Users also can access to our support system, which includes E-mail, web site (FAQ), fax and a toll-free telephone help line.
No Sophisticated Equipment :
This product is not technically demanding and requires basic information.
Specialized Training Tool :
It features pre-programmed training templates and includes an instructional guide/framework; there is also the option of going free form. There are very few training-specific software tools currently on the market.
The approach is flexible: Users create their own courses or, if time or resources are lacking, clients can outsource course development and assume only course maintenance (updating) themselves.
Fulfills Various Needs :
This product is well suited to a variety of needs and industries; whenever online learning is appropriate, use this authoring suite to make it accessible.
