Develop e-Learning quickly and easily with our authoring tool. Configuring and optimising modules couldn’t be easier, and changes are instantly visible to participants. One module can contain different language versions, and translations can be added with ease.
The didactic formats are designed to help participants achieve a specific learning goal. These templates allow any employee to digitize their own knowledge. Courses will be more accurate and employees will be more involved.
Make adjustments in the content editor, click on SAVE… and you’re done! The changes are displayed immediately, even if the module has already been loaded into an LMS.
Let others review your e-Learning easily with the integrated review tool. Click on an element, add your comment and save.
The authoring tool is available in more than 30 languages. Particularly convenient is the option to import and export translations.
Create adaptive e-Learning programs designed around individual participants’ knowledge levels. A preliminary test determines which part of the course a participant has to follow. This saves time and makes sure everyone reaches the same level.
With gamification you add game techniques to your learning program to keep your participants motivated. Make use of time limits, a progress bar, levels, badges and much more.
Short learning activities are perfect to refresh important knowledge, attitude and behaviour. It’s a low efforts approach to train your participants. You can read more about this on our microlearning blog.
Check if participants understood the information. Choose formative, summative or diagnostic tests with immediate feedback. Other options include open-ended questions, hand-in assignments, online workbooks and many more.
Manage the look and feel of your company using the skin editor. The editor applies your corporate visual identity to all e-Learning that you create or have already created. Do you want a different style for a specific project? No problem!
All templates and formats are fully responsive. This means that every module you create, looks good on both tablet, laptop and mobile.
Our templates are properly designed so you don’t have to worry about the programming and technicalities behind them. All interactive elements – like buttons, links and animations – are predefined and work right away.
Combine your existing e-Learning (e.g. SCORM package) with FLOWSPARKS content to form a new course. In addition, you can also integrate off-the-shelf e-Learning from other providers.
We successfully join forces with other systems. Easily integrate with HR systems, LMSs, webshops, apps and more. We accomplish this using our own API and support all kinds of standard integrations like SCORM and LTI.
We’re all in this together! You can address our helpdesk or Customer Success Coaches with any questions. Follow video trainings and find answers on our members portal. On top of that you can benefit from interactive customer sessions and other events.
Reuse specific content across several modules with a simple mouse-click. Whenever you make adjustment to one module, it will automatically be updated in all other modules.

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.
It’s not a question whether we integrate with your desired systems but how. We are happy to explain how it works. Want to know more?
Together we create a tailor-made package. That way you never pay too much and you certainly don’t miss out on anything.
FLOWSPARKS has allowed us to develop new GoodHabitz training courses every month at at a fast pace. The didactic formats allow us to save time on design structure and to easily put everything together into a multilingual package.
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.
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.
