What’s the best e-learning authoring tool out there? That’s a lot like asking, “What’s the best car on the road?” The answer can be very subjective, and in the end, it’s based on what matters most to you. In this session, you’ll learn what key features and characteristics can be used to differentiate tools (such as price, ease of use, interactivity, accessibility, and mobile compatibility) so you can make the best choice for your needs. Plus, you’ll get some perspective on how the top four e-learning authoring tools (Articulate Storyline, Articulate Rise, and TechSmith Camtasia, and Adobe Captivate) stack up in these different categories. You’ll also get a quick under-the-hood look at these tools to give you a general sense of what it’s like to work in them. In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The key distinguishing characteristics of e-learning authoring tools
  • How the major tools compare in the most important categories.
