Top eLearning Authoring Software Products

Our clients often ask us what eLearning authoring software we prefer when it comes to eLearning solutions development. Because each project is different with different goals, requirements, and limitations, there is no simple answer to the question above. However, we do have our 3 favorites. Here’s the software most used here at eLearning Company:

1. Articulate Storyline

Why we like it:
It allows us to deliver interactive courses to every device—without tweaking a thing. We simply create the modules in Articulate Storyline, then click publish. The courses natively play on all devices. In addition, it’s easy to get started with Articulate Storyline right away with an intuitive, simple interface. We can make objects, animations, trigger events, and other elements appear in the right place at the right time with the intuitive visual timeline–everything you need to create custom eLearning on the fly.

2. Adobe Captivate

Why we like it:
Adobe Captivate lets us go seamlessly from storyboarding to responsive eLearning design. It also comes with exclusive 50,000+ assets and is compatible with Adobe Stock that allows to tremendously enrich training content. In addition, Adobe Captivate allows us to import the PowerPoint slides into eLearning projects. We can bring in objects, animations, and multimedia, easily update the content, and keep the PowerPoint and Adobe Captivate projects in sync with the dynamically linked import options.

3. Trivantis Lectora

Why we like it:
Trivantis Lectora publishing feature enables smooth transitions within our courses—for both desktop and mobile—giving the end user a more immersive view of the course. We can easily create scenario-based eLearning with BranchTrack and add scenarios right into our Lectora courses. Another useful feature is that we can have objects maintain their location on the page, even when the view is scrolled. This is perfect for use in mobile courses to anchor logos, headers/footers, navigation controls, images, and videos.
