Modern students are characterised by the use of multiple mobile devices, operating systems and browsers in addition to conventional textbooks. They want to learn at their own pace and place, and demand flexibility and convenience. They are used to social media, modern websites and apps, and demand this from e-learning content as well.
On the other hand, developers of e-learning content want to focus on content instead of on the technical background required to meet these new standards. Furthermore, in a constant search for efficiency savings, developers require an environment where e-learning components are reusable and traceable.
Author-e e-learning solution
With Author-e, interactive e-learning content can be developed in a simple manner. Author-e is a web-based collaborative authoring environment where developers and authors can create, store, reuse and manage e-learning content. This content can be published as an interactive web application, or as a Word, PDF, or ePub format for mobile devices. The design can be adapted to suit your company style.
Create, review and approve documents. Using workflows and tasks, insights in progress of e-learning documents and modules can be gained through the notification center.
Multi-channel publications. E-learning documents and modules can be published to multiple formats, such as Word, PDF, e-Pub, HTML and XML. This ensures any organizational requirement regarding publications can be met.
Central layout management. Templates and centralized standardization of fonts, font size, captions, text alignment and spacing ensure that all your documents are consistent with your corporate identity and organizational standards. Forms can be used to standardize data input.
Reusability of content. Sections and documents can be embedded in other documents. This enables modifications to documents to be reflected in all documents that use them, eliminating double maintenance, copy-pasting and confusion about what is the latest version.
Simultaneous writing. Authors can work on the same document at the same time. This prevents locking of documents, thus increasing efficiency.
Version control. All previous versions of documents and files are retained, and can be restored if necessary. This is absolutely necessary to comply with norms and legislation, and allows you to look back at documents that were effective in the past.
User access management. Roles & rights can be defined not only at the document level, but also at the section level. These rights are automatically inherited to sub-sections. This allows enforcement of refined access policies.
Digital signatures. Workflows can be coupled with digitally signing off tasks. This, combined with version control, ensures traceability of actions, as well as accountability.
