Authoring tools come in handy if you are looking for a way to easily create SCORM courses. If you’re planning to use those courses in your LMS, you’ll want to make sure that the tool you use supports SCORM so that your content is compatible with your LMS.
Authoring Tools that support SCORM
In almost any presentation we give, the question comes up – what SCORM authoring tools do you recommend? And the answer is always the same – we don’t. We just can’t.
See, some authoring tools use our SCORM Driver, (also known as Rustici Driver) and some should use our SCORM Driver. The whole client/prospective client thing is a little bit of a problem because any recommendation we make would be colored by the commercial side of things. Add to that the fact that what we know is SCORM, not content authoring, and we really shouldn’t be making recommendations.
All of that aside, we’ve been able to use our unique position in the e-learning community to put together a tool called the e-Learning Atlas.
The e-Learning Atlas is a list of almost every company and product in the e-learning space. It’s sortable and filterable by just about any criteria that you’d need, and it’s the only database in the world that contains e-learning specifications (SCORM, AICC, etc.) by product.
