Course Authoring Software

Course authoring software helps companies develop and share training courses with employees. With training authoring tools, corporate training programs can be customized in order to best educate employees. Alternatively, teachers can use course authoring tools to design courses for their students. Course content can often be imported from multiple applications, and presented in different media formats. Once developed, courses can be published through a Learning Management System (LMS) or Training software, or as stand alone computer / web based training.
