One of the biggest challenges in creating a good e-Learning Authoring Tool is to create a user interface that is both easy to use for new authors and efficient for experienced authors. You can see a demonstration of our e-Learning Authoring Tool user interface on YouTube. In the demo, you can see the authoring tool makes it easy to construct the structure of the course. The structure of the course is a hierarchy of individual pages that provide the instructional interactions. The built-in interactions include information pages (HTML pages), questions, quizzes, tests and a summary page. The user interface provides a built-in HTML editor for the information pages. There are also built-in editors for the questions, quizzes, tests and summary page. You comments are welcome – are there ways we can improve the user interface?

We have been working on a new e-Learning Authoring Tool for quite a while. Our goal was to create a tool that makes it very easy to create the most common types of courses and also allowing power-authors to extend to tool to create all types of courses. You can learn more about the new tool at the e-Learning Authoring Tool product page.
Our goal with the authoring tool was to provide all of the features you would expect in a clean, easy to use interface. The features include information pages, questions, quizzes and tests. The information pages are created with a built-in HTML editor so your course can contain all of the elements from a good web site including rich text, multimedia, tables and more. There are also built-in editors for questions, quizzes and tests.
We very interested in your feedback on this new authoring tool. Please comment in the blog or send us your comments by email.
