4 Reasons You’ll Love Lectora for E-learning Development

Do you have classroom training materials that are inundated with text? Are you planning to convert these materials into engaging online courses, which can be accessed anytime, anywhere, to meet the needs of your global learners? Well, you need to use Lectora Inspire to transform your instructor-led training (ILT) content into good e-learning courses. Let us see why.

1. Ideal for converting text-heavy ILT contentinto e-learning courses 

Lectora Inspire is a good tool to convert text-heavy materials into engaging e-learning courses. This tool is well-suited to convert materials used in classroom sessions on compliance and regulatory affairs, which usually contain huge amounts of text, into engaging e-learning courses. For instance, one of our clients in the pharmaceutical sector uses the latest avatar of this tool, Lectora Inspire 16, to transform the content of instructor-led training sessions on norms pertaining to clinical trials.

2. Easy to produce multilingual online content 

E-learning translations are made simple with Lectora Inspire. You can export the content of courses developed using this rapid authoring tool as a rich text file (RTF), which can be sent to a translator for rendering the content in the desired language. And once the file has been translated, all you need to do is import it into the tool and publish it to create the translated course. You can also create a multilingual interface for the course, which allows the learner to access the online course in the language of his choice and switch between languages, either from the Home page or in the middle of the course.

You can use Lectora Inspire to publish the learning content as an HTML5 file. This feature allows you to develop courses which can be accessed on all Smartphones and tablet PCs, enabling your staff to access the content at the point of need. Furthermore, you can tweak the code of the HTML5 file and develop mobile learning apps, using third party applications such as PhoneGap.

Therefore, it is important to make your online courses responsive, so that your people can access them effectively on any device. You can use Lectora Inspire to develop responsive e-learning courses using external JavaScript coding.
