Online learning and self-assessment

Industry challenge

Modern students use 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 techniques 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 in a Word, PDF, HTML, SCORM 2004, ePub for mobile devices. The design can be adapted to suit your house style.

Create, review and approve documents. Using workflows and tasks, insights into the progress of e-learning documents and modules can be gained through the notification centre.

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 that any organisational requirements regarding publications can be met.

Central layout management. Templates and centralised standardisation of fonts, font size, captions, text alignment and spacing ensure that all your documents are consistent with your corporate identity and organisational standards. Forms can be used to standardise 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 which version is the latest.  

Simultaneous writing.   Authors can work on the same document at the same time. This eliminates the need to lock documents as is usual in other DMS environments, 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 and rights can be defined not only at the document level, but also at the section level. These rights are automatically assigned 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.
