Course Authoring Software

Course authoring software enables organisations to develop customised training courses for educating employees, or for teachers to develop 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.
