    How to choose the right authoring tool software for your organization?

    authoring tool

    Start by answering the following 2 questions

    1. Which kind of learning content do you wish to create? 
    Here it becomes important to think about the learning needs in the organization and the requested output. Is there a need to be informed or retrieve information fast? Is the need more about being able to apply knowledge or learn a new skill? Are you seeking for interactivity or is the main wish to just be able to send short bursts of information to your participants? Depending on the outcome of these questions, you will already have eliminated a lot of authoring tools from your list.


    2. Who in your organization will be working with the authoring tool? 
    Do you have a large team with Learning Developers, Graphic – and Instructional Designers who can create e-Learning? Or are you looking for an authoring tool that could be independently used by subject matter experts whereby the only focus is the actual content? Although all authoring tools will make the promise to be easy to use, sometimes the learning curve is quite high and a lot of technical and graphical experience is needed to make it work.


    Only after you have an answer on both questions, you can start listing ‘must-have’ and ‘should-have’ features and make comparisons between authoring tools. And while you are exploring e-learning authoring tools, why not book a demo to get to know FLOWSPARKS? Let’s talk and explore how our authoring tool fits the need of your organization.

    What is an authoring tool?

    The definition of an authoring tool is “a program that helps you write using hypertext or multimedia applications and enable you to create a final application merely by linking together objects, such as a paragraph of text, an illustration, or a song.” By defining the objects’ relationships to each other, and by sequencing them in an appropriate order, authors (those who use authoring tools) can produce attractive and useful graphics applications.

    What are the advantages of an authoring tool?

    There are many advantages to using an authoring tool:

    1. Securing knowledge digitally

    By capturing knowledge digitally, it will not be lost and is easily available to the right people.

    2. Making adjustments easily

    Constant changes take place in an organization. Think of a new product range or new safety regulations. With an authoring tool, you can easily respond to these changes and update the information immediately if necessary.

    3. Multi-person development

    Developing traditional training materials, is often the responsibility of a small group of employees within an organization. With the right authoring tool, you can expand this group so that
    those who possess the knowledge can also share the knowledge.

    4. Interactive and diverse content

    Everyone learns in their own way. With an authoring tool, you can serve all audiences by developing a diverse range of modules and adding interactive elements. This keeps learning fun!

    5. Measure results

    Do employees now receive PDFs, PowerPoints and other documents that they have to go through? Then you must have asked yourself whether they have actually read through this information. With e-Learning, you get insight into the results achieved and you can also see who has already completed which modules.
