Can anyone suggest me with the some of the best authoring tools in elearning market
I think the rapid authoring tool market is a rapidly growing and highly competitive industry. The leading players in the market are Andersen, Articulate, and Adobe. While all three tools have their own unique features, Andersen’s tool is the most comprehensive and user-friendly. In addition, Andersen provides a free trial so that users can try before they buy. For these reasons, Andersen is the best choice for e-learning authoring.
According to me, ProProfs Training Maker is the best e-authoring tool in the LMS domain. It seems like this would be included in all LMS software out there, but trust me there are platforms which need the users to undergo training to start using it.
What makes ProProfs LMS the perfect one because this cloud-based platform allows creating courses (irrespective of size and volume) five times faster with a simple ‘drag and drop’ feature. While educators favor this online tool for its intuitiveness, students prefer ProProfs LMS because it is an easy-to-navigate system that comes with a series of automated features and streamlined processes. For most users, it’s a simple matter of selecting a theme and then simply house your content. In its simplest form, you just have to add text and media to the pages. Any interactivity associated with a particular page type is pre-built into it, so there’s no coding involved.
Since this LMS platform is SCORM and Tin Can compliant, importing content from other e-learning platforms (that are SCORM and Tin Can compliant) is easy and hassle-free. Apart from being a top-class e-authoring tool, ProProfs Training Maker offers advanced course tracking capabilities that is beneficial for learners and educators both.
