Authoring Power

Knowledge Objects

Knowledge Objects are prebuilt templates with wizards that drastically cut your development time. Use them to accelerate both large and small authoring tasks, from creating application frameworks and quizzes to installing fonts or locating a system’s CD-ROM drive. Just drag and drop from the Knowledge Object gallery, and then fill in the content.

Learning Management System (LMS) Knowledge Objects*

Create courseware that can connect to LMS systems and that complies with standards from the Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC) or the ADL Shareable Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM). Users work with the wizard to decide what information to get or send to the LMS. The Knowledge Objects handle all the complicated back-end communications with the LMS. LMS Knowledge Objects can communicate through ADL and HACP, as well as over LANs.

Deliver e-learning applications with the click of a button to an LMS. This feature integrates and automates all the steps in the packaging and uploading of your content to LMS systems, making deployment simple.
